What's your role?

I am a Trainee Legal Assistant in the New Home Team. As part of the Trainee Legal Assistant programme I will have a 6 month seat in each of the three departments. The three departments are New Business, Legal Assistant to a Fee Earner and Post Completions. Being able to experience and work in each of the three departments will provide me with a wide and expansive knowledge of the legal process from the start of a transaction, setting up and opening files all the way through to the end of a transaction, dealing with Land Registry applications and closing files. I am able to talk to clients, lenders and solicitors providing information and updates and explaining the legal process. I aim to be become a Conveyancer in the future.

Your experience

I graduated from South Downs College with A-Levels in Law and Psychology. From college I started working in a Conveyancing Solicitors and have now been working in conveyancing for 18 months. I have experience in both Residential and New Homes Conveyancing. I am currently studying for the CLC qualification which is a Diploma in Conveyancing Law and Practice. When I have completed the 4 year course I will be a Licenced Conveyancer. My work in New Homes helps me apply everything I learn in the course to my everyday job which I find extremely beneficial to both my job and also my course learning as I can see how what I’m learning applies to a conveyancing transaction.
