Providing specialist support to private clients and housing associations on residential conveyancing matters relating to shared ownership and social housing allocations, as well as undertaking standard sales and purchases of residential property.

In addition, her freehold and leasehold expertise encompasses shared equity schemes, initial and additional share purchases, interim and transfer of final staircasing, as well as memorandums for interim staircasing of flats and all related stamp duty matters.

  • successfully adapting a conveyancing template involving grants of rights of way, sewerage, and communal facilities for a housing association’s pilot voluntary right to buy scheme; and
  • the timely and efficient preparation of purchase documentation for multiple clients in the first phases of an over-55s development, leading to new instructions by the seller on the sale of the subsequent phases.
