Sarah joined Leathes Prior in 2010, having been at another local firm for 10 years previously where she gained extensive experience providing services to both local and national developers. Sarah has a working knowledge of the Social Housing sector as she worked for many Social Housing Providers. She is therefore fully acquainted with the commercial aspects, procedures and documentation involved with both new-build freehold and leasehold sales and Housing Association NewBuild Homebuy (Shared Ownership) matters.
Sarah has experience in dealing with transactions such as Right to Buy, Right to Acquire, Assignments (re-sales of existing shared ownership properties), Stair-casings and Transfer of Equity. Sarah specialises in acting for the buyers of properties both from Developers and Housing Associations (now known as Registered Providers) working within the time frames required to enable a swift and pain-free transaction for all concerned.
Outside of Leathes Prior, Sarah is interested in greyhounds and has done some volunteer work for Yarmouth Homefinders (a branch of the Retired Greyhound Trust). She also enjoys reading and walking.
