Lucy Rodrigues

Conveyancer

Lucy joined the firm in January 2014 and has been a Conveyancer for the last 3 years. She acts in residential matters including leasehold and freehold sales and purchases, and New build.

Recently Lucy was instructed to act for a client selling a Leasehold property which not only has a mortgage secured on the property with a well known lender but also a Homes and Communities charge. This type of matter involves a lot of extra documentation together with numerous deadlines set by Help to Buy which she had to comply with to the best of her abilities.  

The same client is also purchased a New Build Property with another well known lender and obtaining a Help to Buy equity loan which again involves a huge level of paperwork and many strict deadlines.

The matters are both required to be worked on frequently due to the strict timescales set by not only Developers on the New Build but a valuation is required to  be carried out on the sale property which is only valid for 3 months. Therefore should it was important to meet the timescales, otherwise the client would of incurred extra charges and this is something she made sure to avoid at all costs.

What Lucy Says 

After having children, I studied for a Law Degree at the University of Kent and then joined Martin Tolhurst Solicitors as a Legal Secretary.

After approximately 2 years with the firm, I was promoted to a Conveyancer.

Having purchased my own property, I understand the stress and emotional rollercoaster it can be, and therefore I try my best to alleviate some of the pressure by ensuring good communication with my clients at all times so they know exactly what is going on and what will be happening next.

Away from work, I enjoy running and spend most of my time driving my children around everywhere!

If I were not a Lawyer, I would be...
