Our client is a property investment company who are specialists in purchasing commercial and residential properties.

  • The ability to and experience in drafting and negotiating documents such as SPAs and option agreements; carrying out title investigations and searches (including but not limited to probate matters)
  • Knowledge of auction contracts and overage provisions
  • The ability to handle complex title structures and any contentious matters
  • A proven track record of dealing with volume transactions
  • Excellent communication skills
  • A strong eye for detail

This position will suit a real estate lawyer who is looking to move into an In House setting, or further their career in an In House setting.

The role is predominantly based in their South-West London office, but there is some scope for remote working for one or two days a week.
