A Practical Approach to Conveyancing takes a pragmatic, rather than academic, approach to conveyancing. It provides practical solutions to everyday problems encountered by conveyancing practitioners wishing to offer a cost-effective and efficient service.

Written by two leading authorities in the area with over 50 years' combined legal experience, A Practical Approach to Conveyancing offers a detailed and up-to-date exposition of the key principles and procedures underpinning the conveyancing process. The book provides practical guidance on each stage of commercial and residential conveyances, with realistic sample documentation to help you approach all aspects of a conveyancing transaction with confidence.

Now in its seventeenth edition, this classic text has firmly established itself as a core text supporting LPC students. It is also essential reading for trainee or qualified solicitors, legal executives, or licensed conveyancers.
