Residential Property Lawyer- Taunton

An exciting opportunity has arisen to work for a Legal 500 listed, national, full service law firm, working out of its Taunton office.

The firm has enjoyed significant growth in recent years and is continuing to grow. It works with an extensive client base of private sector businesses, sole traders, public sector bodies, high-net-worth individuals and charitable organisations, and advises on almost every aspect of the law. Its focus is on steady, repeatable, year-on-year planned growth and will continue to develop its teams in order to deliver services on a national basis.

It is a firm known for providing a supportive and positive place to work, with an open and collaborative culture. Scoring as one of the nine top performing firms in the Legal Week's Best Employers Survey 2016, and more recently, the UK Law Firm of the Year 2018 survey by RollonFriday.com placed it fourth nationally as a place to work, taking into consideration pay, career development, management and culture. It scored first place nationally in this 2018 survey for work/life balance.

This opportunity is based within its Private Property & Agriculture residential conveyancing team. You will be working on a range of residential property purchases, sales, transfers of equity and mortgage related work, dealing with both freehold and leasehold properties.

Your conveyancing case load will cover a broad range of property types, to include both country houses and town property, which may involve listed buildings and unregistered titles. You will have plenty of client contact, providing a high quality, tailored service. This is a varied and interesting role, with the opportunity to gain exposure to agricultural elements, if you wish, to broaden your expertise.

Based in a friendly and supportive team, this role provides an excellent opportunity to continue to develop and build your property career.

You will need:
* You will be a Solicitor or Legal Executive with a strong grounding in property law and conveyancing transactions
* You will have experience handling sales, purchases and remortgage files and be keen to extend your skills and expertise
* You will have excellent communication skills and be a strong IT user; this role will involve using a case management software system
* Having a client focus is a must, with the drive and determination to provide the best service possible for your clients.

In return you'll receive:
* A competitive salary and benefits package
* The opportunity to develop your conveyancing career in a growing, market leading law firm.
