Andrew started at JB Leitch as part of the Real Estate team in September 2021 when he received his training contract.
Andrew’s current role involves “disinterring” the complexities and nuances of the freehold and leasehold law while working under the scrupulous supervision of his excellent senior colleagues. Because there are so many seemingly conflicting case decisions in those interlacing areas, it takes a weather eye of a seasoned solicitor, who has dealt with every abstruse aspect of property law over many years. I am a work in progress.
Hitherto, among others, Andrew has been handling a high volume of commercial leases mostly by conducting due diligence, completing the transactions, submitting the Deeds of Surrender to the Land Registry, and removing the accompanying restrictions. He has also drafted conveyancing transfer documents, giving the leasehold law advice to our landlord clients and, in the main, explored together with his partners almost all facets of a given real estate case.
