What's your role?

I am Plot Sales Team Manager with responsibility for overseeing the Plot Sales function within in our Commercial Property Team.

Your experience

I have worked within the Commercial Property Team at Coffin Mew since January 2014 when I joined the firm as a Legal Secretary. I have carried out various roles during my time at the firm including compliance for the team as a whole, alongside studying CILEx part time. I am now Plot Sales Team Manager responsible for overseeing the plot sales function of our Commercial Property Team.

I act on behalf of housebuilders and property development companies in dealing with the set up of mixed use, freehold and leasehold new build developments and subsequent plot sales. I am experienced in dealing with developments of varying sizes with both residential and commercial elements across the country. I also act on behalf of developers in acquiring part exchange properties and onward sales assisting developers to achieve their sales targets.

Where possible, we aim to issue contract papers within 48 hours of the sales memorandum to achieve exchange of contracts within 28 days, allowing a steady stream of cash flow for our developer clients. We aim to create a standard sales pack during the set up process with pre-emptive enquiries to assist in achieving a quick turnaround and minimising delays in buyers’ solicitors raising enquiries. Weekly updates are also given to allow our developer clients to meet their sales forecasts with further updates in between to ensure queries are dealt with in a timely manner.

I am an Associate member of CILEX and I am due to complete my Level 6 Professional Diploma in Law and Practice in June 2019 to become a Graduate member of CILEx and further qualify as a Chartered Legal Executive.
