How can I help you?
I joined Tees on qualifying as a solicitor and am a property specialist with more than five years experience in acting for corporate clients, landowners and private individuals in a broad range of commercial, rural and residential property matters.
For our business clients I regularly carry out sales/purchases and leases of various properties including retail units, restaurants, offices and industrial units. I also handle the acquisition of development land and deal with overage agreements.
I carry out sales/purchases of farms, agricultural land and other rural property for our farming clients who I also assist with agricultural tenancies under the Agricultural Holdings Act 1986 and farm business tenancies. I organise the registration of large-scale and complex landholdings. In addition, I support our personal clients with sales/purchases, equity release lease extensions and collective enfranchisement and with assured shorthold tenancy agreements.
Delivering what you really need
I strive to provide all of my clients with a quality, personal service. It is important to me to take the time to get to know my clients in order that I may understand their specific needs and circumstances which enables me to assist them in achieving their aims.
The breadth of experience across the firm means that we are able to provide our clients with comprehensive advice taking account of all of the issues that are relevant to their particular circumstances. For example, I work closely with my colleagues in the Wills, Tax, Trusts & Probate department to provide assistance and support in relation to the property aspects of the administration of estates and succession planning for our rural clients.
What else should you know?
I have been awarded with the Fellowship of the Agricultural Law Association. The Fellowship was created by the Agricultural Law Association in 2009 to provide advanced training to those specialising in rural practice and covers a range of relevant areas of law including agricultural holdings, trusts, taxation, town & country planning.
