HCR Law Events

About me

I completed my training contract with HCR in 2014 and qualified into the real estate team. Whilst I deal with all types of commercial property transactions and offer property support work to other departments across the firm, it is the real estate finance work which really appeals to me.

My real estate finance experience enables me to act on behalf of high street lenders, challenger banks and/or businesses, property investors and individuals in secured lending and property finance work. The transactions vary from refinancing large residential portfolios to investment acquisitions or disposals of high value commercial property.

My strong work ethic, commercial approach and availability outside of normal office hours means that I am able to turn transactions around in tight timescales whilst still delivering a high-standard service for all parties involved. My efficiency allows me to get the job done, on time, on budget and with little fuss.

Outside of work I enjoy running, playing netball and, as Head of Fun Committee for HCR,  organising social events for the firm!

Property expertise has drawn praise

Emme Raynsford’s property expertise has drawn praise from Mark Walker of Lloyds Bank’s commercial banking division, who said: “Emme has proven herself to be a thoroughly professional property lawyer handling a wide range of property types and values from modest residential to high value commercial units. Approachable and readily contactable, she is easy to work with, and I would have no hesitation recommending her to other lenders or clients who require a reliable, technically competent and very thorough property lawyer.”
