Together they deal with most aspects of social housing conveyancing, particularly new build open market and shared ownership plot sales, staircasing, share resales, buy backs, lease extensions, enfranchisements and old stock property disposals. They also assist other members of the team with a variety of residential and commercial transactions.

Jess’ personal testimonials:
“We have a fantastic relationship with the paralegals within the social housing team and consider them to also be part of our team and crucial to delivering affordable home ownership to those that are in need within the county. The team are extremely dedicated and passionate about their role which is evident from their timely way in which progress transactions and from their communication throughout. We use the social housing team for all of our first trance shared ownership sales, shared ownership resales, staircasing transactions, Right to Buy sales and asset disposals. The paralegals are extremely proactive in their approach, which in turn keeps transaction times low. The team are always on hand to discuss any issues that may arise and are always willing to tackle these head on. Our shared ownership and disposals programmes have both grown significantly within the past 5 years. This simply would have been unachievable without the commitment and dedication of the paralegals within the social housing team.”
