New head of enfranchisement for Nottingham law firm

Nottingham-based property management law firm, Brady Solicitors has recruited experienced leasehold solicitor, Sajel Patel to head up its enfranchisement practice.

As Head of Enfranchisement based at the firm’s Nottingham offices on Regent Street, Sajel will be responsible for managing Bradys’ leasehold enfranchisement services and right to manage applications, as well as providing further support to its busy lease extension team on complex lease extension projects.

With 10 years’ specialist experience in all aspects of leasehold enfranchisement, Sajel joins the firm after almost seven years at Shoosmiths, where she grew and managed the firm’s enfranchisement team.

“Enfranchisement and lease extensions are a national focus at the moment following the government proposals to streamline, simplify and reduce the costs associated with them,” Sajel says. “It is a growing area of work, with residential leases getting older, mortgage lenders more demanding and leaseholders more aware of their rights.

“My new role at Brady Solicitors offers me the opportunity to progress my career in an area of law I am truly passionate about, with a firm that really understands and is fully committed to the leasehold market. I am looking forward to working with the knowledgeable team at Bradys and bringing my specialist expertise and experience to advise both leaseholders and freeholders on all aspects of enfranchisement.”

Founder and MD of Brady Solicitors Clare Brady adds: “Leaseholders are becoming more aware of their rights in this area, but many have had their fingers burned with non-specialist conveyancing solicitors, and recognise they need an expert to guide them through the process. The property market is currently buoyant and we see enfranchisement work as a clear growth area.

“We had been waiting to find the right hire to help us lead this specialist area and we are delighted that Sajel is joining us, bringing not only her valuable legal expertise but also a strong commercial background and a clear fit with the Brady values.”
