The Accelerated Pathway in Conveyancing is wholly focused on qualifications and experience for a legal career in property. It does not include the wider breadth of law required for Chartered Legal Executive/CILEx Fellowship status but the option exists for individuals to top-up with qualifications to further a career in this way after becoming a qualified Conveyancing Practitioner or to combine the Accelerated Conveyancing Pathway with the Accelerated Pathway in Wills and Probate.

    Conveyancing Practice Rights Application

    Conveyancing services are regulated under the Legal Services Act. Individuals need to be authorised to carry out services such as the preparation of instrument of transfer or charge, making or lodging documents for registration under the Land Registration Act, preparation of instruments relating to real or person estate under the law or relating to court proceedings in England and Wales.

    CILEx Regulation can award Conveyancing Practice Rights to gain the required authorisation to provide the full range of conveyancing services to clients through a regulated firm, without supervision.

    The scheme of Authorisation is open to all practitioners who can demonstrate the required competence through qualifications and/or experience as evidenced by portfolio. CILEx Membership is not strictly required and applications can be made irrespective of membership grade.

    You can start the application process for Conveyancing Practice Rights by downloading the Practice Rights Application form and use the accompanying Conveyancing Practice Rights handbook and follow the reserved instrument activity certification rules.

    Individuals can apply to CILEx Regulation as a regulator of firms, for authorisation to set their own regulated business offering conveyancing services. Read more to find out about applying for regulation of firms.
