I was interested to read the recent case of IX v IY  which considered the question...
I am a highly experienced Solicitor in the Commercial Real Estate team, listed by the Legal 500 as a recommended lawyer. I am contactable, straight forward to deal with, prompt and proactive. I’m based in our Chelmsford office, and am available for a free 15 minute chat over the phone on 01245 453860.
I specialise in sales and purchases of commercial properties, with particular emphasis on development land (including conditional sale contracts, option agreements, promotion agreements and s106 agreements.), security work acting independently for banks and lending institutions, and leases acting for both landlords and tenants, notably in the industrial, retail and office sectors.
I find the work I undertake is challenging and transactions are rarely routine or repetitive. Many of my clients are long standing and I have become their trusted adviser.
In my free time I enjoy spending time walking and cycling. I also enjoy going to the gym and playing golf.
