Job Description

Ryder Reid Legal is working with a top 100 commercial law firm, to recruit 2 Paralegals to join its Property (Housing) team in either its Leeds or Bristol offices on a permanent basis.

The firm has strong recognition in the independent legal directories - Chambers & Partners and Legal 500. In both guides they are consistently ranked in the top tier for their practices across the UK, with multiple individuals recognised as leading lawyers.

These roles offer a fantastic opportunity to work within a busy team on a wide range of property matters, predominantly focused on sales for the firms Housing Association clients (shared ownership, re-sale price covenant, outright sales, land disposals). Additional tasks will include supporting the partners in the team in relation to acquisition from developers (completion statements, liaising about completion dates, priority searches etc.) and supporting the team on security work (reviewing searches, reviewing titles, assisting in preparing disclosures for certificates of title)

Applicants must be able to demonstrate previous property experience dealing with sales work, ideally in relation to the sale of residential property although the firm would also consider individuals who have acted on behalf of buyers of new build property. The team is a very supportive environment which will provide on the job training for social housing aspects of the role, and successful candidates will receive ongoing day to day support from lawyers. Previous Social Housing experience is not therefore essential for this role, but an interest in Social Housing would be a real advantage.
