I am a partner specialising in residential conveyancing. I am Head of the Firm’s Residential Conveyancing department which is Law Society Conveyancing Quality Scheme accredited.

Originally I was part of Hough & Company Solicitors who merged with Butcher & Barlow in 2011. I initially joined Hough & Company as a legal secretary where I then became a Legal Executive in 2004 specialising in residential conveyancing after completing the exams and training required under the Institute of Legal Executives. I then decided to qualify as a Solicitor so sat the necessary further exams required to do this. I undertook my Legal Practice Course at John Moores University in Liverpool.

I have over 18 years of experience in residential conveyancing and specialise in all areas of this sector of the law to include the areas detailed below: –

  • Sales and purchases of both freehold and leasehold properties;
  • Re-mortgages;
  • Repossession purchases;
  • New builds;
  • Shared ownership lease properties;
  • Lease extensions;
  • Freehold reversions;
  • Transfers of equity to include transfers following divorce;
  • Splitting of titles;
  • Creation of leasehold titles;
  • Reconstitution of titles where the title deeds have been lost; and
  • Adverse possession applications.

I act for all types of clients (both longstanding and new) ranging from first time buyers to established home owners to companies to property developers.

My team and I strive to: –

  • Deliver a personal service to each and every client coupled with sound legal advice.
  • Deal with every matter as smoothly and efficiently as is possible from inception through to completion whilst keeping our client updated.
  • Be personable, friendly, realistic and provide a straightforward approach to each client’s matter.

When I am not helping my clients with their legal matters I love to spend time with my family and friends.

What our clients say

Mr & Mrs R

I just wanted to say a massive thank you for everything you did for us during our house move.

I know it wasn't the easiest but having you at the end of the phone/email to calm me down and to provide clear details made the whole process so much easier than it would have been with anyone else. I know as a partner of a firm you probably don't need to prove the level of service you are providing but I just wanted to say thank you to show how much we appreciate what you did for us.

I will also be recommending you to anyone I know who will be undertaking a house move in the future as you have been great and I can't think of anything that I would have changed in terms of the service provided.

Thanks very much to you and your colleagues for your eye for detail and patience during my children's acquisition of their flat.

Thanks again, also to your lovely reception staff who are so kind whenever we ring”.
