I chose to specialise in property law because of the wide variety of work it involves, from simple, straightforward transactions to complex cases involving multiple legal issues. Whether you’re a first-time buyer, or are looking to sell a multimillion-pound house, I’ll take the time to get to know you and work proactively to move matters forward.
I’m efficient, patient, knowledgeable and friendly and I firmly believe communication is the key to happy clients, as the conveyancing process can appear daunting. I’m always available when you need me, either on the phone or in person, and I try to deal with any enquiries on the same day, even if that means working beyond office hours.
Outside of work, my real passion is my two children. In my spare time, I like walking in the countryside and, as I also love art, I try to visit as many museums and galleries as possible.
Read my letters and emails carefully to avoid any delays or misunderstandings.
Raise any queries or worries you have with me – I’m always available.
Keep talking to me about the move, rather than receive often conflicting reports from your estate agents or other parties in the chain.
How long with the transaction take?
As a general rule of thumb, a sale/purchase usually takes 6–8 weeks from receipt of the contract papers to completion. However, it does vary and we can only move as quickly as the slowest link in the chain.
When can I collect the keys on the completion day?
As soon as the seller’s solicitors have received the funds, they will authorise the agents to release the keys. Depending on the length of the chain, that usually takes place by lunchtime.
If I complete on a Friday, can I move out over the weekend?
No, you must vacate on the date of completion.
