TP Legal Ltd

The Role

This is an exceptional opportunity for a Solicitor to join our niche property law firm with great prospects for directorship for the right applicant. We require an experienced solicitor to head our busy newbuild residential property department acting for clients purchasing newly built/off plan properties to live in. With an emphasis on retirement apartments and so a good degree of leasehold experience and private client knowledge, you will be in charge of a department which includes a trainee solicitor and paralegals. This role does not require any marketing, TP Legal employs a business development manager to link with development sales site managers.

You will be supported on a variety of residential property transactions including sales and purchases with experience in help to buy and newbuild properties a must have. As the appointed head of newbuild residential conveyancing you will be responsible for handling your own caseload of files as well as ensuring that you provide a high level of service to a very high net worth client base. It is expected that the appointed Solicitor will play an important role in the financial success of the department which currently deals with circa 30 reservations a month.

Applications are sought from qualified Solicitors with at least 8 years' PQE (guide to experience) and applicants should be enthusiastic about developing their career in this area and experience in plot purchases. They will be confident in their ability to work independently on their own caseload and meet strict deadlines. The successful candidate will be paid a market rate salary, with a generous, realistically achievable bonus scheme.
