Over 80% of England and Wales is registered with the Land Registry. The Register for each piece of land sets out who the legal owner is (who has ‘title’ to the piece of land), the extent of the land and any rights of third parties over the piece of land. The remaining 20% of England and Wales has never been registered, mainly because it has never been sold.
As family solicitors with offices in Chichester and Alton, we understand that couples facing separation and divorce in Hampshire and West Sussex may feel over whelmed and worried about the future. Collaborative law is a structured process that provides parties with an alternative to going to Court and deals with the issues that arise in a constructive and non-confrontational way.
The team at JC’s new Chichester office gave a warm welcome to a new staff member this week. Jackie Scott joins the company bringing 6 years experience with her as a licensed conveyancer. Jackie trained with a local firm in Chichester and worked hard to qualify as a Licensed Conveyancer at the age of 21. After a brief sabbatical volunteering at a primary school in Kenya, Jackie returned to take up a post at another local firm based in their Bognor Regis office.
Jackie was actually taught A-Level law by JC director Tania at Chichester College many moons ago and it was Tania who fired her passion for law in the first place! When Tania and Kellie-Jayne started planning the opening of their new Chichester office, they knew Jackie was someone they definitely wanted to have onboard.
Jackie understands that moving house can be one of the most stressful life events and prides herself in dealing with transactions efficiently and effectively in order to achieve the best possible outcome – moving day!
