Winter Session 2014 lec > subject pages > conveyancing

The objective of the Conveyancing course is to familiarise students with the concept of conveyancing.  Particular emphasis is placed on the structure of the Standard Form Contract for Sale of Land 2005.

Whilst the course is to some degree involved with practical issues of conveyancing, a good deal of relevant case law is discussed in order that students will be in a position to recognise problem areas in practice.  The course also provides for a consideration of various issues of contract law, equity and planning law.

The course is broken down into four principal areas:

(a)    the period before exchange of contracts;

(b)    the period between exchange and completion of a contract for sale of land; and

(c)    remedies for breach of contract (including alternative dispute resolution).

(d)    Torrens Title, Strata Title, Community Title and mortgages, leases and other interests.


Lecture and weekend school timetables, prescribed materials, and assignment information are in the Subject Guide. Assignments and Supplementary Materials (where applicable) can be accessed from the Webcampus for current students.
