What will the Level 6 Diploma in Conveyancing Law and Practice cover?


This unit is designed to introduce the law of landlord and tenant and how this is applies to leasehold conveyancing in both residential and commercial leases. It will concentrate particularly upon the covenants that are contained within a lease, the enforceability of those covenants and remedies available for non-compliance. The unit will also include information on various types of tenancy, the circumstances in which statutory protection is available for short term residential tenants and how this is governed by the Rent Act 1977 and the Housing Act 1988. In addition, it will also include rent regulation, the rules for mobile homes and an overview of agricultural tenancies.

This unit is designed to give a detailed and practical insight into conveyancing transactions in England and Wales. It is intended to help learners to develop practical skills in residential conveyancing and to manage a caseload of complex residential transactions. The unit covers practical skills in preparing and completing a sale contract and associated conveyancing documentation for both registered and unregistered land in both freehold and leasehold transactions, as well as drafting a transfer deed and, where appropriate, a deed of trust, for both registered and unregistered land in both freehold and leasehold transactions. It provides learners with knowledge and/or skills to apply the concepts of conveyancing in a practical sense to the complexities of the conveyancing process.

This unit is designed to introduce more complex accounting procedures and rules relevant to conveyancing transactions, as well as accounting rules and principles relating to the management of a conveyancing business. It is primarily intended for learners who are working in or have previous experience of conveyancing and/or conveyancing related financial administration, and who wish to move into or become familiar with the financial aspects of managing a conveyancing business. The unit is also relevant to those with appropriate work experience who wish to further formalise their financial accounting skills in the conveyancing sector. It is designed specifically for learners following the SQA Level 6 Diploma in Conveyancing Law and Practice (England and Wales). However, learners do not need to be working in a conveyancing context to generate the necessary evidence to achieve the unit.
