Blackhurst Budd Solicitors adds four to property team

Blackhurst Budd Solicitors has recruited four new members of staff to meet demand for its services in the booming Fylde Coast property market.

Kayleigh Green has joined as a conveyancing fee earner in the residential property team and David Dawson has joined the same department as a legal assistant.

Georgia Fleming and Sarah Grattan Webster have joined the firm’s new business team, which deals with new conveyancing enquiries and file opening.

Briony Haley, director and head of property commented: "The volume of conveyancing instructions we have received from clients across Blackpool and the Fylde Coast since the Stamp Duty holiday came into effect has been phenomenal.

"Given the large proportion of properties in the area that are beneath the standard stamp duty threshold, the rise in home movers cannot be solely attributed to the tax break though. Many people have simply taken stock during lockdown and decided the time is to move on. Some people have been able to save additional funds and many people are looking for home working space."
