Property Conveyancing

To qualify as a Licensed Conveyancer, you will need to successfully complete a course in property law and conveyancing practice with a Registered Training Authority (RTO) and complete conveyancing work experience. Courses that incorporate small business topics would be beneficial should you ultimately wish to set up your own conveyancing firm.

On 26th May 2018, Consumer Affairs Victoria introduced 4 new Regulations under the Conveyancers Act 2006, one of which was Conveyancers (Qualifications and Experience) Regulations 2018.    The new Qualification is the Advanced Diploma of Conveyancing drawn from the national Business Services Training Package.   The Advanced Diploma of Conveyancing comprises 18 units of competency and replaces the current qualification of 8 units.   Students undertaking the current 8 unit Qualification will need to complete that Qualification by 31st December 2018.   If not completed, then they will need to transfer to the Advanced Diploma of Conveyancing and complete that Qualification to be eligible for a conveyancing licence.     

The experience component for a licence, at this stage, is still 12 months full time or equivalent part time supervised conveyancing experience obtained over the last 5 years.

The RTOs recommended are :
