Audrey joined BTO in the summer of 2014 and heads up our busy residential conveyancing department, bringing with her over 15 years of experience in helping clients with all aspects of property matters. Having also practiced in commercial property and leasing in the past, Audrey now prefers to specialise in residential property, negotiating house sales and purchases, remortgages, transfers of title, boundary disputes and advising on all aspects of property ownership in general.
She also carries out executry conveyancing, property transfers as a result of separation and divorce and has experience in shared equity and Help to Buy schemes, having in the past acted on behalf of Housing Associations. While she acts primarily for private individuals, Audrey also counts a number of landlords, investors and developers within her client base, acting on their behalf in bulk acquisitions, HMOs, buy to let purchase and sales and portfolio refinances.
Audrey's personable and down to earth practical approach results in a high client retention level and she often acts for generations of families from first time buyers to downsizers and everything in between. She appreciates moving house can be one of life's most stressful events and thus provides a professional and friendly service to help guide her clients through every step of the process. This approach, coupled with an extensive knowledge of local property markets and a strong network of local contacts, results in a swift and efficient service.
Following her graduation from Glasgow University, and completion of the Diploma in Legal Practice, Audrey worked for the Law School at the University on a project commissioned by Highland Health Board to produce guidance on resource allocation and difficult decisions in the NHS, before taking up a Traineeship with a well established local firm, qualifying in 2003.
Audrey is also a Notary Public.
