Sciaff LLP welcomes two new members of the conveyancing team, Nicola Arlin and Philippa Baker.

Nicola is an experienced conveyancer, having worked in the property industry for over 20 years. She specialises in new build properties and has worked for various national house builders (as well as smaller, more bespoke builders) dealing with all aspects of site set-up for new developments from site infrastructure agreements, housing association sales, the formation of management companies and management company schemes, to setting up the legal documentation for the sale of new homes on an estate.

Nicola has been actively involved in improving customer satisfaction with a former developer client, remaining at the forefront of her service offering ever since. Nicola understands that buying and selling a home can be an extremely emotional and stressful time, even for her more experienced developer clients, and she will do all she can to alleviate the stress that this can produce, particularly by keeping her clients fully updated on the progress of their conveyancing transaction.

Nicola also enjoys helping first-time buyers, those moving home and anyone buying or selling a house or flat. She says “Buying a first home can be a really stressful and daunting experience. I enjoy helping my first time buyer clients understand the process, giving them the understanding and confidence to deal with professionals that they have probably never had to deal with before, such as mortgage brokers, insurance companies, surveyors and estate agents.”

Paralegal, Philippa Baker, has been working within the conveyancing environment for 20 years. She has a broad range of experience dealing with all conveyancing matters and joined the firm alongside Nicola.

Elizabeth Rimell, Partner at Scaiff says “Nicola has a great reputation with her clients and professional contacts alike. Her knowledge and expertise in handling conveyancing matters, alongside her exceptional customer service will be a welcome addition to the firm which prides itself on constant positive feedback from happy clients. Phillipa is also a welcome addition to the conveyancing team and it’s great to have them both on board.”
