Michelle Nicoll Residential Property Solicitor returns to Loughton office
We are delighted to have Michelle Nicoll back within our Conveyancing Department for the start of an optimistic 2018.
Michelle is now back working within our Loughton office and is looking forward to building her own client base in the desirable Essex town.
Michelle began working for Attwaters Jameson Hill in 2009 as a Litigation Executive within the Personal Injury department and qualified as a Property Solicitor in 2014 working from our Hertford office.
Michelle has gained great experience since qualifying almost 4 years ago but has particularly enjoyed acting for first time buyers. Michelle says “It’s so rewarding helping young couples onto the property ladder to start their new lives together”.
Reports suggest this week that house prices are rising for first time buyers, due to the stamp duty land tax relief on properties up to the value of £500,000.00, which is creating a higher demand for smaller homes.
Two-bedroom or smaller homes, typically those targeted by first time buyers, have seen the biggest rise in house prices. Higher demand and a shortage of supply of these types of properties appear to be the reason.
Michelle says: “the increased activity in the property market looks encouraging for the year ahead. Whilst prices are rising in some areas, the demand is continually growing. Buying a property can be a stressful process; however I am able to offer good value for money for the conveyancing process. I am returning to work having spent a year on maternity leave looking after my young family and I am looking forward to helping first time buyers and families buy their perfect home. I have experience with first time buyer transactions, gifted deposits and Help to Buy schemes. I feel it is important to keep stress to a minimum during the process and will be happy to answer any queries or concerns. I also like to keep my clients regularly updated by whatever method they prefer”.
Michelle’s role covers a variety of areas, including but not limited to: freehold and leasehold sales, purchases, remortgages, transfers, Right to Buy, probate sales, Buy to let purchases, removal of charges and severance of title.
