Head of Department, Gemma Bath joined Girlings from a firm based in Richmond-upon-Thames, Weybridge and Wimbledon. During her time of practice in Surrey, she has had the privilege of working on the acquisition and disposal of many high net worth properties (including the acquisition of a property in central London purchased for £10,500,000.00).
Gemma has generated a very loyal client base with much of her current work coming from repeat business and referrals from existing clients or estate agents who have recommend her service.
Our team has a strong track record of positive feedback from clients and a reputation for keeping clients and work referrers up to speed at all stages of the transaction. Our emphasis is always on trying to solve problems that arise in a transaction rather than just advising it cannot go ahead.
We enjoy getting to know the agents we work alongside, which means we are able to then ask for meaningful assistance in chasing a specific element of a deal allowing for the parties to work seamlessly together. We have always found working in this manner to be of significant benefit to all parties in the chain and this approach can often mean that a transaction is able to progress far more expediently.
The team has also received lots of positive feedback for their ability to progress matters swiftly. We take particular care over the timings of the transaction and try to identify any areas which are likely to cause delays as quickly as possible. For example, we will review a lease at the start of the transaction to see if there are any obvious defects which will need addressing by way of a Deed of Variation. We can then put the request for the Deed of Variation in motion at the start of the transaction so that this does cause delay at a critical later stage. We find simple steps like this make a huge practical difference.
