Property Litigation Solicitor

Job Introduction

We are seeking a Contract Lawyer on a 6 month contract to work support our highly successful Financial Services Team.  This is one of the few teams outside London to specialise in contentious work for a wide range of financial institutions. Our clients include the UK's major banks, niche mortgage and unsecured lenders, building societies, international banks with offices in the City, payment service providers and title insurers. 

You will run a significant and varied caseload for key financial services clients, including banks and mortgage lenders with a particular emphasis on advice and mortgage enforcement for later life lending clients, complex residential recoveries and residential title rectification work (where the lender has not obtained the first legal charge they bargained for).

The ideal candidate will have gained experience of acting in contentious residential mortgage recoveries. Specific experience of later life lending clients and equity release products would be desirable as well as working knowledge of property law with a solid understanding of Land Registry practice and procedure is essential.

This role is offered on a day rate basis, inside IR35 (umbrella company) and we are looking for candidates that are immediately available or on a very short notice period. We are location agnostic for this role.
