I specialise in:

  • Commercial Property
  • Residential Conveyancing
  • Lease Extensions and Leasehold Enfranchisement
  • Re-mortgages
  • Transfers of Equity
  • Islamic Finance/Sharia Conveyancing

I have particular expertise in acting for developers in commercial, residential and industrial development.  This includes the acquisition of potential development sites and the drafting and advising on terms of option agreements, conditional contracts and overage provisions.

I act for a number of developers in acquiring properties for sub-division into flats, setting up standard leasehold documentation and management company structures.  I also have experience in drafting and negotiating commercial lease terms and the assignment of commercial leases.

My particular expertise is in the field of Islamic finance relating to house purchases. I have undertaken transactions using the principles of Diminishing Musharaka and Ijara and have dealt with all the major providers of Sharia compliant finance.

I also undertake all aspects of residential conveyancing, including sales, purchases, leases, re-mortgages and transfers of equity; including conveyancing for high net worth clients.
