After starting out in residential conveyancing, I have specialised in commercial property for the majority of my 30-year career. I advise landlords, tenants, property developers, investors, owners and management companies on all aspects of their project and portfolio interests. I also specialise in commercial leases for shops, offices, warehouse and doctors’ practices.
I offer particular expertise in residential property management and retirement housing, having advised the long leasehold division of Hanover Housing Association for over 17 years. I helped them to manage over 100 estates across the country, handling collective enfranchisement claims and drafting the documentation for the sale of extra care retirement flats.
