  • o Feel confident when dealing with cases where there is no right of way, the relevant deed is lost or the right of way is defective
  • o Be aware of key recent changes to Land Registry Practice Guides
  • o Be more confident in dealing with building works in breach of covenant, whether pre-existing or proposed
  • o Understand some of the key considerations for determining whether to seek a non-standard (bespoke) title indemnity policy
  • o Know what to consider with adverse possession claims where there is an objection, where there is more than one squatter, and where the land has not been fully enclosed

What is the target audience?

  • This course is suitable for practitioners of all levels including paralegals, fee earners, trainees and experienced solicitors


While you might sometimes rely on indemnity insurance policies in conveyancing matters, you still need to address title defects encountered in conveyancing transactions. These defects might be caused by missing or incomplete deeds, poor drafting or errors on the Land Register.

During this course, experienced lecturer Stephen Desmond will consider how to successfully manage common title-defect risks and possible ways to address those risks, so that the title can be considered good and marketable.

What is a ‘regulated qualification’?

A regulated qualification is delivered by a learning institution which is regulated by a government body. In England, the government body which regulates courses is Ofqual. Ofqual regulated qualifications sit on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF), which can help students understand how different qualifications in different fields compare to each other. The framework also helps students to understand what qualifications they need to progress towards a higher learning goal, such as a university degree or equivalent higher education award.

What is an ‘endorsed’ course?

An endorsed course is a skills based course which has been checked over and approved by an independent awarding body. Endorsed courses are not regulated so do not result in a qualification - however, the student can usually purchase a certificate showing the awarding body’s logo if they wish. Certain awarding bodies - such as Quality Licence Scheme and TQUK - have developed endorsement schemes as a way to help students select the best skills based courses for them.
