Specialist in residential development.
I am a solicitor within the Built Environment department based in Manchester, specialising in residential development. I advise housing associations and charities on the acquisition of both land and built properties in order for them to be able to meet the social housing requirements within our communities.
I qualified as a commercial property solicitor in 2015 at a niche property practice outside Manchester. I acted for a variety of clients, including landlords and tenants, developers and land owners in connection with the granting and taking of commercial leases as well as the sale and acquisition of commercial property.
Subsequently, I gained experience at a large Manchester firm, with a focus on negotiating and advising on commercial leases and ancillary asset management work.
