New homes team moves in to expand property service

9th January 2018

Help is at hand for buyers of new build homes, with a new team at Harrison Clark Rickerbys offering legal support and advice from the first site visit to the day buyers step over the threshold. The New Build Property team adds to the firm’s real estate services and is based in the Wye Valley.

Led by Bob Leather, who has many years’ experience as a specialist on newly built properties and has established such a new build team before, the team comprises Bob, Chantelle Forbes as senior conveyancer, Eyvonne Dight as operations manager and Sophie Beckett as administrator.

Working through the Three Counties, across the Midlands and nationally, the team will build on their experience and reputation with major house builders to offer clients buying new properties all the help they need with buying or selling homes. Bob and Chantelle’s expertise is already in demand from the house builder’s legal panels and the team is already set to be appointed as the preferred choice for a number of them because of their experience with new build plot purchases.

Bob said: “I’m looking forward to bringing our expertise to the firm’s existing clients and to widening our scope. New builds come with a different range of challenges and opportunities for both buyers and sellers, and our experience in this area will be invaluable.”

Matt Hayes, partner and head of Harrison Clark Rickerbys’ Hereford office, who has been at the heart of this project, said: “Bob’s team are going to be a tremendous addition to our real estate services; they really understand what is needed to operate properly in what can be quite a pressured and emotional environment. The fact that they have worked together before, along with the work we have done over the past few months on our systems, gives me great confidence that they can offer a seamless service to clients right from the start.”
