Social Housing Paralegal.
 
This leading firm provides practical, high quality, and commercially relevant legal services to public, private, and third sector organisations. Their experience includes working with clients across central and local government, NHS commissioning and provider organisations, 40 housing associations, and over 100 private sector companies.
 
They are currently recruiting a Paralegal to join their Social Housing team at their Leeds office. The Social Housing team act mostly for Housing Associations, providing advice on all aspects of property law.
 
Applicants must be able to demonstrate previous property experience dealing with sales work.
 
This role is a fantastic opportunity to work within a busy team on a wide range of property matters, predominantly focused on sales for our Housing Association clients (shared ownership, resale price covenant, outright sales, and 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. The team is a very supportive environment which will provide on the job training for social housing aspects of the role, and you will receive ongoing day to day support from the more experienced lawyers. Previous Social Housing experience is therefore not essential for this role, but an interest in Social Housing would be a real advantage.
 
Attention to detail, efficiency, and the ability to use your own initiative will be essential for this position, and the ability to work to challenging deadlines will be imperative.
 
Please apply via the link ASAP. For further information about this Social Housing Paralegal role based in Leeds, please contact me.
