A licensed conveyancer is a specialist property lawyer qualified in all aspects of property law in England and Wales. A licensed conveyancer is also a Commissioner of Oaths and an increasing number may offer additional services including probate.
Licensed conveyancers are entitled to practice using various different legal forms, which include:
In common with non-legal businesses, there are tax and commercial costs and benefits to each legal form. Under current legislation, limited companies generally offer the most tax efficient route, but may lack the flexibility that a legal practice requires. For this reason, licensed conveyancers may choose to structure themselves as an LLP which may be more suitable to specific requirements.
All licensed conveyancers are members of the Council of Licensed Conveyancers and must adhere to professional guidelines which are not dissimilar to those of the Law Society. This includes a requirement to comply with the Council of Licensed Conveyancers (CLC) Rules.
