Miranda Mortlock – Residential Conveyancing Partner

Miranda MortlockAs one of the Directors of Burnett Barker Solicitors, I head up the Residential Property team and tend to deal with the more complex or unusual elements of residential property transactions.

As well as this I deal with a range of property transactions from sales and purchases to re-mortgages and transfers of shares of property.

How I can help…

Below is an overview of some of my most recent client transactions, to give you an idea of the sorts of things I can help you with:

  • Drafting and negotiating Family mortgages
  • Drafting agreements for unmarried clients or those putting different proportions towards their purchase to ring-fence initial investments and provide clarity of shares upon sale
  • Advice on splitting a development property into flats
  • Implementation of safeguards to protect homes from fraud
  • Rebuilding of lost title deeds to enable an elderly lady to sell her land to a developer
  • Negotiating and drafting a deed of easement over a client’s ransom strip to a developer
  • Providing advice on the enforceability of covenants such as those restricting development
  • Claiming land by ‘squatters rights’

A little bit about me…

After completing University in Staffordshire and qualifying there with a large regional law firm in 2004, I returned to my native Bury St Edmunds and joined Burnett Barker Solicitors in 2005.

Having worked for a local law firm prior to going to university I already knew I enjoyed the fast pace of residential property work. I also enjoy being able to establish long term relationships with estate agents, other solicitors and clients.

Viv Jones - SecretaryViv Jones

I joined Burnett Barker in October 2012 following the firm’s merger with Partridge & Wilson who I started work with in November 1999 after moving back to Bury St Edmunds from Cornwall.

I support the Conveyancing Team and especially enjoy liaising with clients, other firms of solicitors and estate agents to progress matters to completion.

I usually work on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.

Being a wife, mother and (young!) grandmother, life is very busy but I enjoy walking my two dogs, helping out with the grandchildren, gardening and swimming.
