Amy is a Senior Associate in the Residential Property team.
Amy acts for clients in the purchase and sale of residential property, for investors wishing to build their buy-to-let portfolio and for holiday park owners on the sale of their holiday homes.
Amy’s expertise covers freehold and leasehold sales, deeds of surrender and lease variation, new build purchases and the sale of building plots as well as remortgages and transfers of equity. She also advises on staircasing – enabling clients to purchase a progressively greater share of their home through a shared ownership scheme.
In addition Amy undertakes the conveyancing for property sold at auction, preparing and reviewing the legal packs prior to sale, and advising on the particular risks involved.
Recent examples of how Amy has supported clients include:
- ensuring the successful purchase of a property on which finance was obtained one day before proposed completion, and then finalising the transaction three days later;
- preparing an auction pack and carrying out due diligence for a client selling a property with less than a week before the auction; and
- ensuring clean title to a property prior to purchase by insisting problems of insurance provisions acceptable to lenders and landlord covenants within a lease were rectified to avoid complications in any future sale.
