Conveyancing Advisor

Conveyancing Adviser

Conveyancing advisers are responsible for managing the process of transferring ownership of a property from one owner (which could be an individual or a business) to another.


The Role

  • Advising clients on buying and selling properties
  • Researching information and sharing this with others
  • Checking and confirming ownership details through searches and other means
  • Maintaining detailed records, both paper documents and on a computer-based system
  • Keeping the client up to date by phone, email, mail and face to face meetings
  • Liaising with other professionals including lenders and other legal teams
  • Preparing necessary contract documents
  • Dealing with financial aspects of the sale or purchase
  • Finalising exchange of contracts
  • Confirming who legally owns the property and the land it’s on
  • In England and Wales, this work is carried out by a licensed conveyancer; in Scotland conveyancing work is usually carried out by a solicitor.
  • This role will usually involve working standard office hours, Monday to Friday.
  • There may be times when you would need to work in the evenings or at weekends, particularly in more senior roles. 

Salary

  • Newly trained conveyancing advisors can earn in the region of £16,000-£20,000
  • Trained with experience conveyancing advisors can earn in the region of £25,000-£40,000
  • Senior, chartered or master conveyancing advisors can earn in the region of £50,000-£70,000

Salaries typically depend on location, employer and level of responsibility. 


Qualifications and Training

There are a number of routes that can lead to a position as a Conveyancing Adviser but all eventually involve passing the Council for Licensed Conveyancers (CLC) exams.

One way of embarking on a career in conveyancing is via training on the job, which will usually require at least four GCSEs (A-C) – or their equivalents, such as the Welsh Baccalaureate or Scottish Nationals – including English.   

In practice, most qualified conveyancers will have gained a degree or equivalent in law/legal studies, accounting/finance or business studies.
