Thursfields launches New Homes Division to help get the Midlands building

Thursfields has launched an expert division to work with developers, house builders and landowners on the building of new homes.

The New Homes Division, based in our Solihull office, will help individuals and companies deal with the various legal complications that arise when buying and selling new build properties. 

The new division is being headed by Louise Jones, who has more than 20 years’ experience of working in all areas of residential property.

Louise joined Thursfields last year from Taylor Wimpey UK Ltd, one of country’s biggest house-builders, where she had worked as divisional legal manager.

She said: “My experience covers all areas of residential property from sales and purchases of freehold and leasehold property, to more complex property transactions. My particular area of expertise is new build, both acting for purchasers of new homes and for developers in setting up their developments for sale and the subsequent plot sales.

My work with Taylor Wimpey has given me substantial experience in all aspects of new-build transactions including the Help To Buy scheme, assignment of contracts, part exchanges and many other schemes.

I am now enjoying leading Thursfields’ New Homes Division which is helping developers, housebuilders and landowners building the sale of new homes across the Midlands.”

Also working for Thursfields’ New Homes Division is conveyancing executive Alison Collins, who also joined the company from Taylor Wimpey last year.

Louise added: “Between us, Alison and I have more than 40 years of experience and expertise in all areas of residential property. We also share substantial expertise in all aspects of new build transactions with us both having worked for one of the UK’s largest housebuilders for in excess of 12 years.”

One of the New Homes Division’s clients is developer Fara Gohari, managing director of Beechnut Enterprises Ltd, who is currently constructing six plots near Beechnut Lane in Solihull.

He said: “I have been really impressed by Louise’s ability to set up the development and management company for me to enable the marketing of the properties. Louise has been really easy to communicate with and I would not hesitate to recommend the New Homes Division at Thursfields.”
