Ansons has got conveyancing talent

17th July 2013

Amanda Edwards is Ansons Solicitors latest success story, graduating from Wolverhampton University as a Chartered Legal Executive in residential conveyancing.

Amanda’s talent and interest in residential conveyancing was spotted when she joined the Ansons team as an administrator in the conveyancing department in June 2004.

Since then Ansons have nurtured and supported Amanda in her quest to become a legal executive, a journey which has taken her six years of studying and in-house legal training.

Amanda’s specialist training in residential conveyancing means she is qualified to the same level as a solicitor to advise and assist clients in Cannock and Lichfield with house sales and purchases, mortgages and re-mortgages, transfers of equity and plot sales.

Amanda thrives on the fast pace nature of the conveyancing department, meeting new clients and piecing the jigsaw together on their behalf to enable their property transaction to go ahead smoothly. Her interest in property titles means that she knows exactly how to research historic buildings which are often affected by complex covenants and rights of access. In her own words, she derives a lot of job satisfaction from working on plot sales with developers where the scale of the project can be demanding and need a quick turnaround.

Amanda recently delivered in-house training to the rest of the Ansons legal team on matrimonial conveyancing, an area of particular interest to her. She often works closely with the family department to oversee the implementation of property transfers and mortgage releases under court orders. She has however noticed a growing number of people who are not married buying property together, whom she advises;

“When unmarried couples buy a property together, we strongly advise them to enter into a cohabitation agreement to protect everyone’s interests. It might all seem rosy at the outset but things can easily go awry. A cohabitation agreement will safeguard both your contributions to the property. ”
