In October 2006 the Parliament of Victoria passed the Conveyancers Act 2006. When the act came into operation it established a new system of regulation and licensing for non-lawyer Conveyancers in Victoria. Under the Act, a person will not be 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 12months work experience and have completed educational qualifications that will be set out in regulations, and we advise all Victorian applicants should contact BLA or Consumer Affairs Victoria 121 Exhibition St. Melbourne 3000, regarding any, and all, licensing questions.
Non-lawyer conveyancers will only be permitted to carry on a conveyancing business in Victoria if they have a conveyancers licence from the Business Licensing Authority.
Please confirm any required electives that may be relevant to your practising state, with the relevant authority, prior to commencing any course.
Professional obligations similar to those in place for legal practitioners will apply to licensed conveyancers. These include obligations to disclose costs and conflicts of interest to clients. They also include strict obligations relating to the maintenance and auditing of trust accounts, which will reduce the risk of fraud in relation to trust moneys.
NBIA is registered for RPL and RCC and we are happy to help you with this process if you have any industry experience or previous qualifications.
Assessment will be comprised of a mix of assignments, discussion (Q&A and role plays), practical experience, workbooks and tests where a minimum standard is required to pass each unit.
