Residential property conveyancer Alison Haughton has strengthened the conveyancing team of Shrewsbury-based law firm Hooper Burrowes Legal.
Mrs Haughton has worked as a licensed conveyancer within the Shrewsbury area for over 17 years.
Her move to Hooper Burrowes Legal, based at Battlefield Enterprise Park, from one of Shropshire biggest law firms, reunites her with solicitor John Burrowes with whom she has worked as part of a legal team for much of her career.
“I’m delighted to be part of Hooper Burrowes Legal and working alongside John once again. It’s a busy office and I’m very much looking forward to expanding the conveyancing arm of the business,” she said.
Mrs Haughton, 45, began her law career with Burrowes and Co in 1988 before it merged with two other law practices to form PCB solicitors. She qualified as a licensed conveyancer in 1997.
“I didn’t want to train as a lawyer. All I ever wanted to do was conveyancing. It’s an incredibly complex process behind the scenes and can be very high pressure, but it’s an environment that I particularly enjoy,” she said.
“Conveyancing is all about communication, ensuring all parties are kept informed at every stage of the process. I like to see clients face-to-face and give a more personal service. It’s hugely satisfying when clients have secured their dream home and they call to say how happy they are.”
Managing director Mr Burrowes said: “I know how hard working and committed Alison is. Moving house is a stressful experience for most people, but Alison always strives to give a professional service with an added personal touch to ease clients through that very complex process. She will make a valuable contribution to the expansion of our conveyancing team.”
The company is equipped to use the Land Registry’s electronic document registration service which offers a faster and more cost-effective means of submitting and dealing with applications. Clients are regularly kept up to date through email and text messaging.
