London’s property bubble may finally have burst but the North West housing market is going from strength to strength as a Cheshire law firm takes on new staff to meet increased demand.
According to the latest figures from the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS), fewer people are looking to buy in London and the South East than anywhere else at the moment and more people are trying to sell properties. However, the North West housing market is proving to be more resilient with new enquiries outstripping availability and house prices continuing to rise.
This is certainly a pattern recognised by Kim Rowden, senior associate at SAS Daniels:
“I’ve been part of the residential property team at SAS Daniels for six years and we’re busier than ever. That’s why we’re bolstering our team with even more conveyancing specialists. Over the past two years our residential clients have more than doubled, which is why we’ve grown to a team of 16.”
SAS Daniels has offices in Macclesfield, Chester, Congleton and Stockport, where its residential property team is based. Its expertise includes purchase or sale, remortgaging, co-ownership and help to buy. Adding to its highly experienced team, the firm has welcomed seven new staff since the summer, including a new solicitor, a senior conveyancer, four conveyancing assistants and a trainee.
Laura Sayers qualified as a solicitor in 2013 from the College of Law in Chester and brings a wealth of experience to the SAS Daniels team from her 10 year legal career. Becky Tang is a senior conveyancer, with seven years of experience. Maisie Wetton and Nikki Havery, both have in excess of five years’ experience and join the team as conveyancing assistants along with Liz Webster and Jade Anderson. Zoe Worthington has joined as a trainee.
Kim Rowden said:
“We’re excited about the dynamics that our new members of staff will bring to the team. With the addition of our new team members we will be able to accommodate more work and continue to deliver outstanding service to our customers in order to build on our success.”
