Having practised law since 1998, I now head the Commercial Property Department.

I have extensive experience in a broad range of property related and commercial transactions and regularly act for businesses and individuals in connection with:

  • Buying and selling freehold and leasehold properties to include purchase and sale of freehold ground rent investments subject to long residential leases and purchase of freehold buildings for conversion into flats, grant of long residential leases and subsequent sale off;
  • Drafting and negotiating commercial leases, assignments, renewals and surrenders;
  • Property development; 
  • Business sales and purchases; 
  • Commercial loans; and 
  • Rural land matters. 

My clients describe my approach as friendly, sensible and helpful. They say:

“In the two years Rachelle has been handling our account, we have found her to be unfailingly professional and efficient.  Moreover, she has always been accessible and taken the time to explain things in such a way that the whole legal process is clear and concise.  The experience, knowledge and commitment Rachelle brings to the table gives us the confidence to know that our transactions are in safe hands.” - Mandy Allibone

"We were very pleased with the way the lease was dealt with. It was quick and efficient and we were kept fully informed of every detail throughout the proceedings. The whole procedure was done in a very friendly manner." - Raymond Ockelton
