Converting from CILEx Regulation to become a CLC lawyer

FCILEx lawyers who qualified in conveyancing and/or probate can apply to transfer to CLC regulation with no further training or occupational requirement.

You will become either a Licensed Conveyancer and/or Licensed Probate Practitioner.

You will enjoy the benefits of being an Authorised Person in terms of the Legal Services Act 2007 and will be regulated by a specialist regulator with rules, support and guidance tailored to conveyancing and probate practice.

The process is straightforward.

The CLC is waiving the normal Application Fee of £150 for all applicants until the end of April 2023 with the exception of our standard, comprehensive DBS and screening check cost, which is under £100.

Your full year individual licence fee, currently £400, will be calculated on a pro rata basis from month of approval until licence renewal on 1 November 2023.

You will need to hold relevant practising certificate(s) free from conditions and to evidence your most recent full year of CPD.

If you do not meet some of these requirements, we may still be able to progress your application on a case-by-case basis.
