I started my conveyancing career around 10 years ago when I joined my first legal firm as an administrator where it was suggested I start the CLC course to become a licensed conveyancer.  Prior to this I worked in estate agency, lettings and property management giving me a broad knowledge and experience in various aspects of the property market.  Understanding all perspectives of the parties involved in conveyancing is incredibly beneficial and a vital tool in ensuring a smooth transaction.

I strive to provide clients with a personal service to ensure that they feel supported throughout the conveyancing process without bombarding them with legalese.  Making a stress free transaction for my clients is key in what is otherwise often a difficult time. 

I have dealt with a variety of transactions during my time in conveyancing from multi-million pound properties to lock up garages treating all clients as equally as each other.  I pride myself on my excellent communication skills and am always happy to go the extra mile to make things happen. I deal with:

  • Freehold/leasehold sales and purchase
  • Transfers of equity
  • Remortgages
  • Lease extensions
