Bethany is an Associate in the Asset Management and Plot Sales teams.

She has been working in the legal sector for 9 years and has studied with CILEx. Bethany is completing a year of graduate work before qualifying as a Legal Executive. 

She specialises in residential plot sales and site assembly for freehold and leasehold developments working with housebuilders and developers ranging from 10 to 300 units per site. Her specialism is in drafting the estate documents including individual transfers, agreements and leases. Bethany also reviews title documents and development planning consents to formulate an efficient “sales pack” for residential developments.

In addition, she undertakes management company incorporations, working with the corporate team to ensure a smooth transfer of ownership from the freeholder to the management company, passing all maintenance responsibilities of the development to the management company once the development is complete.

Recent examples of how Bethany has supported clients include:

  • facilitating the completion of an £8.5 million development of penthouse apartments by granting individual leases out of an airspace lease, involving deeds of variation and registering the final deed of surrender of the airspace
  • successfully completing the site assembly of a residential development of 170 properties to a strict deadline, negotiating estate documents including registering a rent charge; and
  • enabling tenants to take over the freehold of their new build apartment building once the flats were sold, drafting the lease and incorporating the management company.
