Property Section

What we do

We give you access to the best practice support you need, when, where and how you want it, on the issues that matter to you. From flood risk and conveyancing fraud, to working with lenders, and from break clauses and capital allowances to outcomes-focused regulation.

Our support will help you achieve best practice, because it comes from specialist residential, commercial, and landlord and tenant practitioner members, with access to government and key market influencers, including Land Registry and the Council of Mortgage Lenders.

“The Property Section provides the best support property lawyers can get for their money. I would not hesitate to recommend it.”

Nick Fluck, Law Society president and property solicitor

  • Over £850-worth of discounts off other Law Society books and events, including our flagship annual conference and the Conveyancing Handbook

Who we are

Our Section committee of specialist commercial and residential property practitioners, elected by Section members, works with Law Society experts to ensure we give you the best possible support.
