Recent examples of how Anna has supported clients include:

  • selling the freehold of a multi let building on behalf of the administrator of the freeholder, and ensuring that the administrator benefited from the full value of the property by agreeing occupational leases of the commercial units; and
  • acquiring a complex historic city-centre site on behalf of a developer client with the benefit of planning permission.
