The new profession was created by the Administration of Justice Act 1985. A Licensed Conveyancer is a specialist property lawyer, someone who is trained and qualified in all aspects of the law dealing with property.

All Licensed Conveyancers have to pass examinations and prove competence in this area. Licenses are issued by the Council for Licensed Conveyancers for those who qualify under the regulations strictly laid down by the Council and this firm is fully backed by professional indemnity insurance.


Goodchild Vizard & Smart were one of the first Licensed Conveyancing practices to set up in business following the ending of the Solicitors’ monopoly on conveyancing services and we have been dealing with all kinds of property transactions since 1987. We specialise in the legal transfer and mortgage of all types of property whether freehold or leasehold and whether commercial or investment to include sales, purchases, transfer of equity, re-mortgages and leases.

We are on the panel of the major banks and Building Societies and are therefore able to deal with mortgages to those lenders at no extra charge and you will receive an efficient, friendly and personal service throughout at an affordable price.

At Goodchild Vizard & Smart our goal is to provide you with a courteous, efficient and professional service of the highest calibre. We have built our reputation based on being friendly and approachable rather than distant and remote. Most importantly you, the client, receive independent legal advice throughout the transaction.
