Licensing requirements

In October 2006 the Parliament of Victoria passed the Conveyancers Act 2006.  This established a new system of regulation and licensing for non-lawyer Conveyancers in Victoria.  Under the Act, a person is not permitted to carry on a conveyancing business in Victoria without a Conveyancer’s Licence from the Business Licensing Authority or unless the person is an Australian Legal Practitioner for the purposes of Victoria’s Legal Profession Act 2004.

To be eligible for a licence, a Conveyancer must have obtained 12 months work experience and have completed educational qualifications set out in the regulations.

In Summary: Non-lawyer conveyancers are only permitted to carry on a conveyancing business in Victoria if they have a conveyancer’s licence from the Business Licensing Authority.
