A Practical Approach to Conveyancing takes a pragmatic, rather than academic, approach to conveyancing. It provides practical solutions to everyday problems encountered by conveyancing practitioners wishing to offer a cost-effective and efficient service. Written by two leading authorities in the area with over 50 years' combined legal experience, A Practical Approach to Conveyancing offers a detailed and up-to-date exposition of the key principles and procedures underpinning the conveyancing process.
