Property Paralegal – Leeds
Bevan Brittan provides practical, high quality and commercially relevant legal services to public, private and third sector organisations. Our experience includes working with clients across central and local government, NHS commissioning and provider organisations, 40 housing associations and over 100 private sector companies.
We are currently recruiting a Paralegal to join our Social Housing team in our Leeds office. The Social Housing team act mostly for Housing Associations, providing advice on all aspects of property law.
This role is a fantastic opportunity to work within a busy team on a wide range of property matters, predominantly focused on sales for our Housing Association clients (shared ownership, re-sale price covenant, outright sales, land disposals). Additional tasks will include supporting the partners in the team in relation to acquisition from developers (completion statements, liaising about completion dates, priority searches etc) and supporting the team on security work (reviewing searches, reviewing titles, assisting in preparing disclosures for certificates of title)
Applicants must be able to demonstrate previous property experience dealing with sales work. The team is a very supportive environment which will provide on the job training for social housing aspects of the role, and you will receive ongoing day to day support from the more experienced lawyers. Previous Social Housing experience is not therefore essential for this role, but an interest in Social Housing would be a real advantage.
Attention to detail, efficiency and the ability to use your own initiative will be essential for this position, and the ability to work to challenging deadlines will be imperative.
To apply for this role, please send your CV and covering letter to firstname.lastname@example.org.
