Meet Joanna Shortland

Moving house is said to be one of the top 5 most stressful life events according to Google. It comes as no surprise therefore that homeowners look for the right conveyancer to assist them in their house move.

I have been in law for 13 years and have seen the market fall and rise numerous times, including its particular drop in 2006/2007 during the recession. The impact that it had for those with high mortgages but no equity in their homes was extremely worrying.

The market is fortunately brighter now and seems stable and buoyant currently. It is wonderful to see many first time buyers achieve their dream of owning their own home thanks to the Government’s help with Stamp Duty relief and other Help to Buy schemes that are available on new build properties.

I am driven to providing a smooth house move by providing advice and support throughout. I have a genuine patience and empathy to those who find the process overwhelming or stressful. I believe in the theory of ‘no question asked is too big or too small’!

If you would like to talk about a possible house move, I would be delighted to hear from you.  Pick up the phone and give me a call on 01935 426047 or email me at  Joanna.Shortland@amicuslaw.co.uk I’ll gladly answer your questions.
