I work within the commercial property team, having joined Higgs as a paralegal in February 2019. Prior to joining Higgs, I was a paralegal in another medium sized regional law firm.

I calculate SDLT on transactions for both freehold and leasehold properties to ensure that clients pay the correct amount of SDLT required.

I assist fee earners with Land Registry requisitions or queries raised by HMLR by using the HMLR portal to make enquiries and applications.
