Remortgage Academy Timeline

First two weeks

You will be intensely trained in a classroom environment to fully understand what is required from you and how your position fits in with the overall process.

The first two weeks will provide you with technical knowledge of how to complete the Remortgage process and understanding the basics of Conveyancing. You will be presented with your own Standard Operating Procedure Manual, which will include everything you need to know for your first two weeks of training. The manual is there for you to refer back to and it’s there to guide you through the procedure when given your caseload.

Training will include using our case management system on test cases once you have learnt the theory; you will be able to see it in practice.

The Assessment

After completing your first two weeks with us, you will be required to undertake a knowledge-based assessment to determine your level of understanding and knowledge gained from the past two weeks. This will give us the opportunity to assess your overall ability to progress to a fully-fledged Remortgage Fee Earner.

The six months

The rest of your time during your academy training will be spent on the team with live Remortgage cases, taking into account everything you have learnt during your first two weeks. You will be paired with a member of the Sort Legal team for guidance and to answer any of your queries. Initially, you will be given a small caseload, which will gradually increase as you progress and gain confidence. You will also have close supervision with a team leader who will be your first point of contact if any issues arise.

The future is bright

At the end of your training journey, you’ll be proud to say that you are a fully-fledged Remortgage Fee Earner with an increase in salary and future opportunities to progress into a legal assistant, transactional fee earner, team leader or licensed conveyancer.

SARAH SEAMAN

“Sort Legal is a friendly company where the staff support each other and work as a team. Regardless of which team you work in; we get along as one. Having worked in smaller high street firms, I can say that this is not always the case! The workload is varied and plentiful, thanks to the SortRefer system. We also have the latest case management technology which means we are able to spend our time helping our clients with their transactions.”
