Tasha Tabannor-RobinsonChartered Legal Executive
Property lawyer working with social housing clients on all aspects of residential real estate.
I work closely with our social housing clients on all aspects of residential real estate, with a primary focus on leasehold extension and enfranchisement. I am also responsible for the management of the General Property and Right to Buy teams with a view to ensuring processes are as efficient as possible.
Prior to joining Anthony Collins Solicitors in 2012, I worked for a small, niche law firm, specialising in planning law and property litigation. My skills and experience have since transferred over to working with social housing providers on post-exchange development matters.
I joined the property portfolio team in 2014 and became team leader in 2016. During this time, I dealt with a range of property matters; predominantly the site set-up of shared ownership and open market schemes, along with the subsequent sales, including providing training to clients in this area. In 2017, I went on to become the general property team leader overseeing the residential work of this time. This includes (but is not limited to) auction sales, lease extensions, lease variations, land and property transfers, deeds of grant and release, standard sales and purchases, and business lease renewals. I qualified as a Chartered Legal Executive in 2018 and have been largely specialising in residential property law since.
