Partner - Property Law
I deal with residential property transactions including the sale and purchase of leasehold and freehold properties, transfers of equity and re-mortgages and I have built up good relationships with local agents and mortgage brokers.
The majority of my clients are those who I have acted for previously or referred to me by my previous clients. I have acted for buyers in a number of new developments where I was the preferred solicitor; in one development I acted for 19 of the 26 plots. Happy clients are my main aim.
At my previous firm I worked in the Wills & Probate department and for six years was part of the "Make A Will Fortnight" for St Raphaels Hospice whereby we prepared Wills without raising a charge in return for the client donating to the charity.
“In all our dealings with Julia Stygal and a trainee solicitor Zainab Haq we were impressed by their professionalism and courteousness. Me and my husband were the first time buyers, confused and worried about going through the whole procedure. However, we are glad that we had chosen Julia and her fantastic team, as it went really smoothly! It was great to have the benefit of your advice and to be updated on your movements on daily basics. Thank you also to Nicola Daley and Jill Lawson for your very efficient service!" - Mr & Mrs S (April 2018)
"Thank you and your team for the efficient and friendly way you dealt with our sale and purchase. You were all very patient, understanding that this house move was quite a big decision for us. Without you and your team’s support, we are sure this would not have been such a smooth process.” - Mr & Mrs S (May 2017)
"Julia came highly recommended to me through my estate agents and I am so happy that I followed their advice. As a first time seller I was anxious that I found the right solicitor to act on my behalf and I am thrilled that Julia agreed to take on my case. From the outset Julia was friendly and supportive in her advice and I knew that the sale of my flat would be in safe hands. I would not hesitate to recommend Julia and I thank her for her service." - H Large (June 2016)
"You are such a lovely person and you remain professional at all times, but at the same time you have a knack of making us all feel very comfortable. We have always felt very well informed and happy with your speed and efficiency. All of these qualities really make a difference and help to make the whole legal process less stressful" (Ms TH, London)
"The thing that really makes Julia stand out from other solicitors is that she is just so proactive and keen to problem solve for you. Nothing is too much trouble for Julia, Julia will do whatever she can within her means to bring it to bring your transaction to a conclusion, even if it's not necessarily her job. Julia keeps you updated and informed every step of the way. On a personal level Julia is so easy to talk to and makes you feel so comfortable. These may sound like simple things but Julia is the only solicitor that we have used that seems to be able to do the necessary and so much more!" - S Carter (May 2016)
"Thank you so much for all your help in sorting out our move from Carshalton to Devon" - Mr & Mrs Bennett
"We are very grateful for all your help purchasing our new home" - The Gyimah Family
