Conveyancing Department & Property Searches CPD:
Local Land Charges Searches 

The Business Issues
Why do some solicitors and conveyancers order only Official Searches? Why do some solicitors and conveyancers only order Personal Searches? And then there are those who seem to order a mixture of both.
What is the difference between the Official Search and the Personal Search? How do I know which one to order for a particular postcode in England and Wales, and how to order it? What role do NLIS and Land-Data play? Should there be large fees when ordering official searches online?
This CPD course helps anyone working in the conveyancing industry to explore these issues.

This CPD (Continuous Professional Development) Course is suitable for anyone working within the Conveyancing Industry. This includes Conveyancers, Solicitors, Managing Partners/Heads of Department, Office Managers and Fee Earners.

This CPD improves your understanding of the function of the Local Land Charges Search, the difference between the Official Search and the Personal Search, and the wide variety of ordering methods.
