CILEX Conveyancing Practitioner

The Chartered Institute of Legal Executives’ (CILEX) accelerated pathway in Conveyancing, delivers the knowledge and experience of Land Law and Conveyancing Practice in England and Wales. This Pathway educates on laws and acts governing land and property, property rights, property title and easement, leasehold and freehold estate and the effect of covenants, mortgages, trespass and entitlement.

Choose the pathway and click on the titles below to go directly to the right section on this page.​

Download CILEX Conveyancing diagram for an overview of the pathway which prepares individuals for a legal career in conveyancing as a case worker dealing with the conveyancing process, compliance to building and planning regulation in relation to residential or commercial property sales transactions as well as property management arrangements.

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 the real or personal 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.


Top-up Qualifications for Chartered Legal Executive / CILEX Fellowship

Individuals can also follow the traditional CILEX pathway to becoming a CILEX Chartered Legal Executive with Conveyancing Practice Rights. The general pathway is designed to provide wider legal knowledge, that is not just specific to conveyancing and provide a broad-based foundation across key areas of Law and Practice, including mandatory core units in law. This ensures that CILEX Chartered Legal Executives and Fellows are well prepared for a career in law against the background of continuing changes in the legal sector.

The Conveyancing Accelerated Pathway is wholly focussed on a career in Conveyancing and Practice Rights. With top-up units to provide the broader spectrum of core units in law along with proof of relevant experience, it is possible for Conveyancing Practitioners to qualify as Chartered Legal Executives and become a CILEX Fellow with designatory letters FCILEx.

CILEX also offers an Accelerated Pathway in Wills and Probate which can complement the Conveyancing Accelerated Pathway with additional focused legal qualifications and experience.
