"I am a conveyancing executive in the residential property team. I deal with all nature of sales including new build plot sales. I also assist our private client department with estate transfers.”

I joined Higgs in August 2018 as a plot conveyancer. Prior to joining Higgs, I worked in a large national law firm in Birmingham City Centre.

Originally specialising in plot sales, I have experience in dealing with plot sales on over 20 sites of different sizes and for small and large developers from the initial instruction through to completion.

I have dealt with complex sites involving third party landowners and managed the associated complex third-party consents and sale requirements.

More recently I have dealt with residential property sales and transfers.

  • I recently dealt with a high value sale of a client’s holiday home in Cornwall. It was protracted as an application had been made to the Council for part of the property to be designated as ‘waste of a manor’. I worked with the client to have the application withdrawn and the sale was able to proceed successfully.
  • A sale I was instructed on of a property in a deceased person’s estate was complicated in that various works had been done to the property without the required building regulations sign-off. It was necessary for retrospective building regulations consent to be obtained. The matter went on for a number of months but the issues were all dealt with and the matter was able to proceed to completion.

"Vikki Seal was absolutely fantastic. Her in-depth knowledge and understanding of the varied queries raised for both properties was incredibly valuable. What stands out is how easy it was to communicate with her and the speed of response … surprising considering how busy I’m sure she is. Absolutely a credit to the team and I will certainly be recommending her to friends and colleagues."
