What is your role?

My role as a Trainee Legal Assistant is to provide a high level of administrative support within the New Homes team.

As part of the trainee rotation system I will do a 6 month seat in each of the sub teams within New Homes; New Business, Post Completion and as an Assistant to a Fee Earner which will help to give me a vast understanding and knowledge of how the New Home team works as whole.

My role involves mainly assisting the Solicitors, Legal Executives, whilst liaising with Mortgage Lenders, Brokers, Developers and Local Councils to progress transactions. I also have an in-depth understanding of Help to Buy requirements for new build purchases and deal with the Help to Buy agencies on a daily basis.

I support the Solicitors, Legal Executives within the team with all aspects of a sale and purchase and I am a point of contact for clients if they have any questions as well as being on hand to explain the next steps in the transaction and provide regular progress updates to them.

The head of the New Homes team is Karen Webb
