Property Lawyer [residential with some commercial knowledge ] – Full or Part Time

We are looking for an enthusiastic and motivated lawyer to join our growing property team.

The successful candidate

The right candidate will have

  • at least 3 years’ experience of residential conveyancing work
  • an understanding, and preferably some solid experience, of commercial conveyancing cases is essential – for details see below
  • a desire to help in the growth of property department
  • great people skills and will be an enthusiastic team player
  • good organisational. time management and IT skills
  • the ability to multi-task under pressure
  •  keen eye for detail
  • high standards of customer care
  • a history of strong billing

The job is suitable for a solicitor or an experienced legal executive.

So, if you are a confident, well-presented, friendly and approachable lawyer with excellent communication skills, we want to hear from you.

The work

To a certain extent, the job workload can be moulded around the successful candidate.

The ideal candidate will need to play a flexible but senior role within the team and there are potentially 4 parts to this particular role;

1.      acting for property investors – an ability to cover this work is essential –further details below

2.      a willingness to supervise and train 2 junior lawyers

3.      some straightforward residential property work

4.      some light commercial property work – this is preferable but not essential

5.      depending on the candidate, a role as second-in-command of the 20 strong property team may be available

Our property investor team

Working for property investors and developers has become our fastest growing specialist niche and we anticipate the team’s workload growing significantly in the next five years.

This involves working for a variety of investors and developers throughout England and Wales – with some buying residential and others commercial property.

The ability to assist with commercial property work would be a bonus but not essential. However although the successful candidate would be undertaking a significant amount of residential property work as part of the investor work this does often involve commercial elements – and that is why a lawyer with experience only of straightforward conveyancing would not be suitable for this role.

For example work for a developer, though purchasing residential property, might involve the following aspects

·         entering a joint venture and setting up an SPV company (NB our team also includes a specialist commercial lawyer and an accountant – so tax and commercial work is covered by those specialists, but the successful candidate will need to be familiar with these kind of issues and how to integrate them into the property element of the deal).

·         The use of options, delayed completion and overage agreements [NB we do not handle lease options].

·         Bridging and other loans

·         Title splitting

Experienced property paralegal (commercial or residential ) – Salisbury office

Are you a property paralegal who is looking for genuine career progression?

We are always horrified by how many firms fail to offer, or worse promise but then fail to deliver, career progression for their paralegals.

That’s why we developed our own Accelerated Development Programme for paralegals.

The successful candidate will have;

  • at least one years practical experience as a paralegal involved in conveyancing work
  • excellent English Language skills

  • initiative
  • a strong work ethic
  • an ability to stick to strict deadlines
  • the ability to multi-task under pressure
  • a keen eye for detail

The job

The position will be based in our main Salisbury office and is full-time. Local candidates will have a higher priority.

Become part of our new Accelerated Development Programme

We take our paralegals and their training very seriously.

That’s why you might be surprised to hear that Senior Partner Tim Bishop takes a personal responsibility for the Programme.

Tim not only considers each and every application for a paralegal position, but he also interviews every paralegal personally. What’s more, as part of the Programme, every paralegal has an individual one-to-one session with Tim every two months.

In addition Tim has personally developed a series of workshops aimed at developing the kind of skills that every lawyer needs, but which aren’t taught at Law School or on any legal education courses
