This 23rd edition presents up-to-date guidance on good practice in residential conveyancing and is a reliable and up-to-date source of reference to answer the common queries arising from day-to-day transactions.

Among the changes to the law and practice of residential conveyancing covered by this 23rd edition are:

  • higher rates of SDLT on purchases of additional residential properties
  • implementation of the Flood Re scheme
  • Law Society's Con 29 enquiries of local authority 2016
  • risks arising from cyber crime.
These developments and more are considered within a chronological account of conveyancing transactions of residential freehold and leasehold property, supported by:

  • an introductory section addressing a wide range of preliminary concerns, from advertising to VAT
  • procedural checklists for each major stage of the transaction
  • comprehensive appendix material, including all relevant forms and guidance.
These features have made the Conveyancing Handbook a trusted first port of call for thousands of practitioners.
