Paula is an Associate in the Conveyancing team.

An expert in residential conveyancing, she has advised private individuals buying and selling properties for over 20 years by guiding her clients through the conveyancing process in a friendly efficient way.

Paula has dealt with complex matters and has key experience in dealing with leasehold properties, shared ownership, lease extension, company purchases and unregistered titles.

Examples of how Paula has supported clients include:

  • advising in relation to shared ownership properties and the procedure for staircaising a property so that an additional share could be purchased to meet the clients requirements.  Also checking that the leases complied with the lender’s current requirements which were arranged to be varied if necessary;
  • supporting companies in the purchase of properties in their company name.  This involved guiding them through  additional processes such as personal guarantees required by lenders and the requirements of companies house; and
  • when it was necessary for a lease to be extended (as the period left to run was too short to meet lenders requirements), she liaised with the freeholder and arranged for a surrender and re-grant of the lease which amended the term of years the lease was granted for so the sale could proceed.
