I qualified in 2017 and joined Child & Child in 2021 after four years working closely with the Head of New Build and Specialist Property in a successful team in a well-known nationwide firm. I have handled a wide range of conveyancing transactions, acting primarily for purchasers of New Build property, both off plan and structurally complete. I take a personal approach with each of my clients, and deal with their transactions efficiently and professionally, whilst always prioritising their interests.

Whilst often dealing with the purchase of new build properties, I also have vast experience in dealing with the following:

  • I have acted on many shared ownership transactions, including acting for both buyers and sellers of shared ownership properties and have built strong relationships with various Housing Associations as a result of this. During my time at my previous firm and Child & Child I have been one of only 2 other solicitors to act on both shared ownership new build transactions.
  • I have acted for developers in their plot sales, ensuring that transactions proceeded with both attention to detail and at the speed desired by the clients
  • I have acted on numerous residential transactions, including purchases, sales, re-mortgages, and transfers of equity.
  • I have acted on many high value transactions
  • I have acted for clients purchasing via assignment, particularly in situations with a tight timescale
  • I have acted for many overseas clients, particularly in Far East Asia, and have created efficient procedures to deal with the complexities that form part of acting for overseas clients.
  • I have acted on more complex transactions including equity release and bridging finance.
  • I have acted for both individual and corporate clients, tailoring my approach to the needs of the client each time.

Whilst at my previous firm, my work was recognised when I won the “Commercial and Specialist Property Solicitor of the year” award. I am committed to providing detailed legal advice to my clients whilst still taking a pragmatic approach and working diligently to deliver the best service and outcome for my clients.

Since Sarah began acting for us in our purchase of a new build off-plan flat, we have felt nothing but support from her and all of our confidence in the transaction has come from knowing we have such a skilled and caring solicitor acting for us. Sarah was incredibly detailed in her responses to our queries and ensured that we remained fully informed throughout the transaction. The enquiries raised with the developer by her have ensured that we our best interests have been looked after and that we have had the best outcome possible. We are so thankful that we had her by our side during this time and her communication was clear, punctual, and showed a great amount of attention to detail. We couldn’t recommend Sarah more and know any client would be lucky to have her act for them
