Take our free e-learning module for Scottish solicitors to learn more about risk management issues in conveyancing work.

Around half of the claims under the master policy relate to conveyancing matters. This is perhaps unsurprising, given that there is a significant number of conveyancing transactions each year, with every transaction involving high value assets. Nevertheless, we believe that many of the mistakes that have led to professional indemnity claims against law firms over the years might have been avoided through improved risk management.

The Module

This module covers some of the common areas of risk for the conveyancer, including access, boundaries and title conditions issues. It has been designed to help practitioners minimise the risk of claims and complaints being made. The module is interactive and will provide you with some practical examples of claims faced by conveyancers and key lessons to be learned from each example.
