Gethin is a Partner in the Residential Property team.
He deals with properties from starter homes and shared ownership apartments, through to celebrity homes and whole housing developments, as well as completing remortgages, transfers of equity, possessory title applications and lease extensions.
His loyal clients span the country, particularly in Chester where he is based and in London where he has dealt with a number of high value properties, a number of which are as a result of his working relationship with estate agents and financial advisers who recommend their clients to him. Knights acts for property developers, from site acquisitions by our real estate team through planning and construction, before Gethin and his team deal with the set up work for the plot sales and then the subsequent plot sales.
Recent examples of how Gethin has supported clients include:
- the purchase of a multi-million-pound home in Henley-upon-Thames which has its own island, necessitating the consideration of riparian rights relating to island access, fishing and keeping a boat;
- the purchase of a property for a buying client within two weeks, despite competition, a tight deadline and having to overcome issues relating to building works carried out and the legal title;
- identifying title defects and insisting that the sellers of a house rectify these at their expense to ensure that our client would have a clean title to the property;
- preparation work for the sale of new build apartments in Notting Hill - 12 properties likely to sell for a combined value of £28 million.
