In a commercial property transaction, everyone is usually working towards the same goal – it’s my job to ensure that process goes smoothly.
Whether you’re looking to buy, sell, lend or borrow, I pride myself on providing the best client service – I’m very responsive, and make sure that I do everything I can to ensure matters progress as quickly as possible.
When problems arise, I develop solutions swiftly, and make sure your best interests are at the forefront of any negotiations. I advise a range of clients, including retailers, investors looking to sell, acquire or borrow against properties, and banks looking to lend and take security over property or developments. I also advise on all aspects of property management.
Out of the office, I love spending time with my husband, children and stepchildren, who all keep me very busy! Born in Wales, I’ve spent much of my professional life between Cardiff and London.
Do your homework – don’t just do the necessary due diligence on the property or deal itself, but also on the party you’re dealing with.
Vet your professional advisers just as thoroughly as your deal, and make sure you’re working with well-respected industry experts.
Get organised. To ensure the deal runs smoothly, handle any requests from your professional team promptly. You may otherwise face increased costs and delays.
How long will the deal take from start to finish?
It very much depends on the solicitors being used by the other party and how responsive they are, but I’ll give you as accurate a timeframe as possible at the start of the deal and keep you updated along the way.
How much will it cost?
I’m happy to offer a fixed fee based on some usual assumptions and caveats. I’ll always honour that fixed fee unless the deal materially changes and would always discuss any increase as early as possible.
What do you advise?
All too often, lawyers sit on the fence, but I’ll always advise you on the pros and cons of a particular deal. In the end, it’ll be your final decision, but I appreciate you can’t make that decision unless you have the right advice.
HCR were instructed by a bank in connection with a refinance of three mobile home parks with a loan value of around £14m. The deal was complex; it involved a share acquisition (by a newly incorporated SPV company) of the company which owned the main asset, as well as a third-party security being given by two group companies over two other assets.view full case study
