Staffurth and Bray
Having completed my training contract in 2006 I became a Partner in 2008 dealing with residential and commercial property transactions. I have worked in Bognor Regis throughout my career during which time I have built many long term relationships with a large number of clients who regularly use my services as well as other industry professionals including developers, estate agents, mortgage brokers and other solicitors in the area, many of whom I act for personally. These relationships are the key to being able to provide good communication within any property transaction which is necessary to provide the professional proactive and efficient service that the client needs but in a friendly and approachable way. This combined with a wealth of property knowledge and experience has enabled me to build a strong reputation for achieving the aims of my clients.
I specialise in residential property transactions including sales and purchases of freehold and leasehold properties including unregistered land as well as remortgages, transfers of equity, lease extensions and investments properties. I also deal with commercial property including commercial leases and licences, option and overage agreements and ground rent portfolio purchases.
"Paul was knowledgeable, courteous, helpful, and efficient in dealing with the sale of my flat. In contrast to some solicitors I have dealt with before, his aim seemed to be to make the work as straightforward and comprehensible to the layman as possible, for which I was very grateful. He always kept me informed and advised me shrewdly. In an unrelated matter, in which he had no professional interest, he assisted me in finding a solution to the problem. This was done in his own time and at no cost to me. I felt very comfortable working with Paul and would definitely use his services again in future." - Mrs B-S (October 2017)
"Very professional and friendly, any queries answered promptly and whole transaction completed in record time. Very satisfied." - Mrs E (Oct 2017)

I acted for a residential flat owner in relation to their lease extension. They had been quoted an extremely high premium by the landlord of over £15,000.00 and so approached me for advice. We negotiated with the landlord on a voluntary basis quoting the relevant law and showing a premium survey calculation and agreed on a premium of less than half of the original sum demanded by the landlord
