My role

I specialise in the acquisition of land or completed dwellings for registered providers and charities so that they can provide social housing in and for our communities. I offer expertise in all aspects of residential development and provide commercial and pragmatic advice to deliver results for my clients.

My experience

My experience comes from working in a niche corporate practice where I acted for a variety of national lenders on their secured lending. I have also dealt with a range of corporate clients and their plethora of property needs, including negotiation of acquisition contracts and leases and providing detailed due diligence reports.

My specialisms

  • Social housing development
  • Golden Brick and 'off-the-shelf' development agreements
  • Commercial property
