This qualification provides a practical overview of buying and selling residential property, providing you with all the knowledge and practical skills needed in the workplace.

You will understand the need for various searches, know the completion procedures, the importance of undertakings, the legal and practical consequences of breach of contract and most importantly how to handle the client’s expectations during the transaction.
