A bit about me

Moving home is a big part of people’s lives; it can be the most rewarding but also the most stressful experience, so it is my job to help ensure the transaction runs as smooth   as possible. Conveyancing is so much more than just the paperwork, the work involves developing long-standing relationships with clients and their families as they move and build their futures.

I take a ‘one size doesn’t fit all’ approach, treating clients individually to suit their needs and removing the legal jargon so that they understand the process. I have worked with private clients, estate agents, mortgage brokers, lenders, developers and local authorities on a range of matters including buying and selling residential property and high-net-worth properties, re-mortgages, transfer of equity and equity release.

Outside work, I enjoy making the most of weekends by being outdoors and exploring the English and Welsh countryside.

Want to know more?

Always inspect the property you are buying before exchange of contracts to check for any recent storm damage /leaks/ appliances are working.

If you are selling, prepare your documentation in advance – do you have all relevant planning documents, guarantees and installation documents e.g. for central heating? This will help avoid delays during the transaction.

If you own a property with an unregistered title, please ensure it is registered at the Land Registry as soon as possible to guard against the risk of lost deeds which can prevent and/or delay a future sale.

How long will it take?
Approximately 10-12 weeks, although this will depend on the circumstances of each transaction.

Do you organise a survey?
No, we do not organise surveys although we may be able to recommend a local surveyor.

Can I proceed without searches?
It may be possible if you are a cash buyer to proceed without searches although we would always recommend that these are carried out.
