Our Technical Advisors

As a Technical Advisor you will support the conveyancers, progressing transactions through to exchange as quickly as possible. The role involves responsibility for checking that titles to properties are good and marketable and dealing with all the legal aspects of the transaction.

The role requires excellent attention to detail and experience in dealing with freehold, leasehold, shared ownership, new build and unregistered titles.

It’s important to be up to date on current case law and financial matters surrounding conveyancing, have a positive can-do attitude, and be a proactive problem solver, willing to coach junior members of staff and maintain an awareness of the pressures on your colleagues.

Being self motivated, approachable and able to prioritise your daily workload in order to meet changing deadlines are vital qualities in this role.

  • Punctual and presentable
  • Enthusiastic and positive team player
  • Keen problem solver

My role as a Technical Advisor

As a Technical Adviser, I review the legal documents relating to the property, together with the contract, transfer deed and any additional documents such as planning and building regulations. I review searches, compile property information into easy-to-read Property Reports for clients and make amendments to the contract and transfer deed where necessary to ensure our clients are not contractually bound to irrelevant or unnecessary clauses which would adversely affect them.

I, along with a team of other highly qualified Technical Advisers, deal with freehold properties and leasehold properties which vary within each category with new builds, unregistered properties, shared ownership, first time buyers, probate sales, help to buy properties, retirement homes, company owned property sales and purchases, and many more. We deal with individuals who have never been through this process before, or the last time they did was 20 years ago, meaning the process of selling and buying has significantly changed.

Naturally, with various types of properties, no two matters are the same – we could be dealing with two semi-detached properties and even they can be significantly different transactions, purely due to the fact that we deal with real people who are not selling or buying as part of their job, but trying to fit this process into an already hectic and full life.

Our aim is to not only make the process as quick and stress free as possible to allow clients to move on with the next chapter of their lives, but also to try, as best as we can, to ensure nothing of a legal nature crops up out of the blue later.
