Job description

This is a fabulous opportunity for an individual with a solid grounding in conveyancing procedures to join a specialist conveyancing firm in Exeter with a focus on new build transactions. 

Offering genuine scope for progression within a truly lovely working environment, this really is a fabulous chance to become part of a friendly, supportive and close-knit team as they now require an additional member of staff due to increased client demand to provide essential support to fee earners with the management of their caseloads.

The actual role will see you conducting electronic ID checks on all new build clients, carrying out OS2 and Bankruptcy searches and ensuring these remain in date, taking instructions from clients, collating and sending/checking supporting documents, carrying out and checking pre-contract searches by checking whether the property is affected by local authority proposals, leases, easements or covenants, mortgages, land tax, susceptibility to flooding or subsidence, or liability for unsound building structures and repairs, receiving and checking mortgage instructions from lenders and carrying out additional administrative tasks as required.

With first class communication skills and the ability to work autonomously when required whilst remaining calm under pressure, you will be highly organised and adaptable to changing priorities and deadlines.

You'll need to be a team player to embrace the ethos of this firm which is very much 'our people come first' and as such they believe in a relaxed, but professional approach.  They want staff to feel motivated and believe this happens by treating people as individuals and finding their strengths and applying those to their daily tasks.  It also helps that they offer dress down Fridays, social events and office lunches! 

Naturally, you'll be customer focussed, highly organised and possess a genuine 'can do' attitude to your work along with an approachable and friendly persona and a good sense of humour!

So, if you'd like to find out more about this exciting role and feel that you can meet the criteria then we would love to hear from you!

Legal Southwest will never, without exception, send out your CV without your prior knowledge or consent so please be assured that we treat every application with the utmost confidentiality.
