Specialist Leasehold Enfranchisement Lawyer

Key Details

Contract: Full Time, Permanent

Job Location: Salisbury, Wiltshire

Job Location: Wiltshire

Pay: Negotiable

Work Pattern: Full time, Permanent position

Additional Benefits: Excellent company benefits

We have a fantastic position available for a part-time or full-time lawyer to join our client as a part of their specialist 6 strong leasehold team..

Our Leasehold Team
The team is one of a small number of genuinely specialist lease extension teams nationwide, possibly the largest most specialist team of its type. We handle work throughout England and Wales – for both freeholders and leaseholders. We continue to significantly increase our work, as the team’s excellent reputation spreads.

The work
The vacancy is for the most specialist member of the team. In particular they will, therefore, not just have experience of routine leasehold work, but they will need the following expertise:

•      Both Right of 1st Refusal and Collective Enfranchisement work – in particular they must have ability to deal with not just small blocks, but medium sized blocks (say up to 50 or 75 flats) and ideally larger blocks – 75 units+

•      Right to Manage cases – for both small and medium-sized blocks, and preferably with experience of larger blocks

•      Lease extension, statutory freehold purchase of houses under the 1967 Act and license to alter work. Although existing members of team are able to cover this, the ability to cover this work as well, caseload permitting, is important

The successful candidate
They will;

•      be a genuine leasehold specialist with extensive experience of complex collective work

•      have a desire to continue growing specialist experience and knowledge

•      have the confidence and the ability to react to change whilst working within a pressurised environment

•      have excellent standards of client care and great communication skills

•      have a history of strong billing

•      be an enthusiastic team player, with great people skills

•      have good organisational and excellent IT skills

•      have the ability to multi-task under pressure

•      have a keen eye for detail

Full or part-time
The job is available on a full-time or part-time basis.

Team leader?
The position may be available for the right candidate. However the ability to manage and supervise a team is not essential. We have an alternative team leader available.

Flexible and home working
The job is available either on a remote working basis, or based at one of our 4 branch offices – Salisbury, Andover, Amesbury and Fordingbridge – or on a hybrid basis.

Flexible and home working is nothing new to us. For the last 10 years or so, many of our lawyers have routinely worked from home. And as a result, we were well placed to continue to offer a high level of client care when coronavirus hit, and lockdown was imposed, and we believe we have coped much better adapting to the “new normal” than most law firms.

We are more concerned with output than input. What we are really looking for is quality legal work, highly satisfied clients and great billing.

Salary
Market rate – dependent on the successful candidate’s experience.

nd approachable person with excellent communication skills, we want to hear from you.

However, we are also happy to receive applications for more experienced paralegals or legal executives who are also able to run routine probate cases

The successful candidate
The right candidate will be a specialist will writer who has at least 2 years’ solid experience drafting wills and powers of attorney. They will have;

  • good numeracy, good organisational and excellent IT skills
  • a keen eye for detail
  • excellent standards of client care and great communication skills
  • the ability to work unsupervised, as part of a 7 strong private client team
  • the ability to be an excellent biller
  • a desire and the ability to help in the continuing growth of the private client department

Location
Although we are happy to base the successful candidate at any 1 of our 4 offices, please note that if the candidate is not based in Salisbury or Fordingbridge, they will need to be able to attend the Salisbury and Fordingbridge offices on a regular basis for will appointments with clients.

Full or part-time
The job is available on a full-time or part-time basis.

Flexible working
Dependent on the successful candidate’s experience, we are happy to offer flexible working if required. For many years before the current coronavirus crisis, many of our lawyers have been routinely working from home. So, it’s nothing new for us.

And we are more concerned with output than input – what we are really looking for is quality work, highly satisfied clients and great billing.

Salary
Market rate – dependent on the successful candidate’s qualification and experience
