Recent experience

Property development
Acted for a number of property developers, advising on acquisition of residential property, subsequent conversion to flats and sale.

Land registry
Successfully gained title of possession on behalf of a client who had occupied his property for 50 years but had no legal right of ownership. Assisted in registering property with the Land Registry.

Commercial Acquisition
Acted for the tenant on the acquisition of a warehouse

Environmental clearance
When a client’s sale fell through following an adverse environmental search, Jagruti investigated the matter and demonstrated that the previous commercial use of the land did not pose a risk of contamination. A clear certificate was given for the property and the sale could proceed.

“Throughout the process you were extremely efficient and organised and as a result we were better able to deal with outstanding queries in a timely fashion.”

“Jagruti was always available and responded promptly to messages.”

“Jagruti went out of her way to make sure I was not put at any risk even when things got confusing and complicated.  Thank you.”
