Qualification notes

This qualification is designed to reflect the role of conveyancers responsible for conveyancing work, team leadership and/or the management of a practice. At this level individuals are expected to apply specialist skills and knowledge in a range of situations to deal with complex situations and issues. They work across a broad range of technical or management functions with accountability for personal outputs and for team outcomes.

Conveyancing is a licensed occupation. Licensing regimes for conveyancers differ between States and Territories in Australia. To determine the most appropriate pathway to satisfy licensing requirements within a particular State or Territory it will be necessary to contact the relevant licensing body for advice.

Qualification Pathway

  • as sole operator
  • in a small business practice
  • as a team member in a larger organisation.

A further learning pathway could be study in relevant higher education programs. Learners should establish relevant qualifications and any credit arrangements that may apply in order to make appropriate elective choices in this qualification.

Duration of the course is for 12 months with 24 months allowance and the course is run via distance learning.

**New regulations for Victoria conveyancers came into operation on 26 May 2018 and affect this qualification. Click here for more information.

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.

Licensing requirements

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

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 will 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.

All assessments are deemed to have occurred at our Ivanhoe premises.
