Sarah Christmas

Sarah studied at Manchester University and the London School of Economics, embarking upon a career in HR Management in the UK and abroad before deciding on a career in Law.

 

She qualified in 2003 and subsequently specialised in commercial and residential property law.

 

During her many years of experience she has dealt with a full range of properties and property issues. Her clients include property developers, those with property portfolios, people buying and selling their homes, landlords of residential and commercial property, business tenants taking new commercial leases and renewing current leases, clients buying and selling at auction, and management companies.

 

Sarah is as comfortable with large high value commercial units as with conveyancing for buyers getting their first footing on the property ladder.  She is interested in achieving the best outcome for her clients, and so most of her work is through recommendations and repeat business. She has a ‘can-do’ attitude and will work hard to reach the desired objective.
