Harrogate based Berwins Solicitors has announced two new appointments which build on the firm’s reputation as a leading local property specialist.
Wendy, who comes to Berwins from a Wetherby firm, has a strong reputation within the legal profession and, over a decade in law, has built extensive local property knowledge.
Joining from a major national house builder, Lynette brings with her conveyancing expertise and specialises in supporting both buyers and developers of new build properties.
Commenting on the appointments Head of Residential Property, Jo Randall said, “We’re delighted to welcome two talented professionals, who offer fresh insight and experience which both complements and enhances the support we offer clients.”
The increased focus on new build properties reflects a growing national trend as the government seeks to address pressures caused by a shortage of housing stock over the next five years.
“The latest local authority figures indicate that just under 4,000 new homes are required in the Harrogate District by September 2021” added Jo.
“As a firm, we understand how important this niche area of property law is to people locally. We’re committed to ensuring the support we offer in this field is of the high quality synonymous with Berwins – these new appointments help us better meet these needs.”
