Helen joined stevensdrake in 2014 and heads the Residential Property and Conveyancing department.
Having read law at university and attended the College of Law at Guildford, Helen qualified after her training contract in Worthing and spent some years working in Brighton.
Helen deals with the whole range of residential property transactions for all types of clients. She acts for first time buyers, clients’ house moving sale and purchase transactions, investment purchasers of buy-to-let properties, developers buying properties to convert/modernise and sell. She can undertake re-mortgaging work, clients’ charging properties bought for cash and right to buy purchases from the Council. Helen has recently seen an increase in high-end clients making cash purchases who instruct her to complete within a week of the offer being accepted, and with co-operation from the Seller’s solicitor, this can be achieved. She has also recently advised in relation to the grant of new residential leases of large office premises.
In her spare time, she enjoys the simple things in life such as walking across fields with her family and planning her holidays….. client’s work permitting!
“I wanted to say a big Thank You to you and stevensdrake for all your help and support in buying our first home! Our baby boy has finally got his own room and plenty of space to run around I was impressed and extremely happy with the quick responsiveness and professionalism that I received from you and will be recommending to my friends”.
