Social proof: testimonials

Helped show me I've been doing it right!


I’d just like to say thank you so much for the course the complete guide to new build conveyancing I thoroughly enjoyed it. Although I’m a qualified licensed conveyancer I do feel a lot of conveyancing ends up being self-taught and it’s nice to know I’ve been doing things right. It has also helped to get my head back into conveyancing after taking a year out through ill health.

Such a handy tool!


I just wanted to say how much I enjoyed the Practical Property Course! I bought it last year whilst I was furloughed to keep up my knowledge (and keep me busy), I’ve since changed jobs and am now working for a developer so had a refresher this morning ! It’s such a handy tool and I’d be interested in any others courses you do so I’ll keep my eye out!

Loved the bite sized pieces


I've just completed the Practical Property Course and found it really informative and easy to do. I loved the bite-size pieces and easily understandable breakdown of each module.
