Property Paralegal

  • Leeds
  • Permanent
  • £20000 - £30000 per annum

My client is a UK-Top 100 commercial law firm providing a comprehensive range of legal services from offices in a number of major UK cities.

A vacancy has arisen for an experienced property paralegal to join their Private Sector Commercial Property team in their Leeds office. The private sector team mostly act for clients within the private sector but also work within other sectors across the firm where there is a need for expertise. There are genuine promotion prospects for those with the ambition and skills to do so.

The role will involve:

  • Working for clients within their Local Government Sector providing advice in relation to their ongoing acquisition program of a number of residential properties and some general residential sales/purchases for private sector clients.
  • Handling new build plot sales for private sector developers and a local authority client.
  • Assisting the fee earners with a range of property transactions including acquisition and sales of commercial premises, landlord and tenant matters and assistance with acquisition and site set up of commercial/residential developments.

This role is a fantastic opportunity to work within a busy team on a range of property matters running a case load of residential transactions and supporting the wider commercial property team on commercial transactions. The role requires solid property experience in title and search review including preparation of reports on title.

Applicants must be able to demonstrate previous property experience dealing with acquisitions and sales of residential property including and reporting on title and the ability to work mostly unsupervised on residential matters although there is a wealth of experience in the team should support be required. Experience of working on commercial property transactions would be beneficial but not essential.

Attention to detail, efficiency and the ability to use your own initiative will be essential for this position, and the ability to work to challenging deadlines will be imperative.

They offer a substantial benefits package to all employees, which includes 25 days holiday (plus the option to buy up to an additional 5 days), a generous pension scheme and private medical insurance through Vitality (including “phone a GP service”, discounted gym membership and ‘Vitality’ Partner discounts).

All of their people are entitled to a biannual private health assessment through Nuffield Health and are included in the group life assurance scheme. They also have an Employee Assistance Programme (free telephone support and counselling service) and a cycle scheme (Save Tax & NI on a bike for cycling to work).

Where possible, they want to offer all people flexibility to work their week in a way that suits them – they operate a hybrid working model based on the needs of their clients, teams and that of the individual.

Salary will be competitive based on the relevant experience and all levels will be considered in this regard.
