CLC granted powers to issue licences to probate specialists

09 March 2015

The Lords yesterday accepted government amendments to the Deregulation Bill that will enable the Council for Licensed Conveyancers to licence specialist Probate Practitioners.  

Until now, anyone wishing to be a CLC-regulated Probate Practitioner has also had to qualify as a Licensed Conveyancer. Today's amendments tidy up that and other quirks in the framework of legislation governing the CLC.
