Wards Solicitors announces new Head of Conveyancing

Wards Solicitors' Head of Conveyancing Rebecca Stuart

Regional law firm Wards Solicitors LLP has promoted Rebecca Stuart to the role of Head of Conveyancing.

Rebecca is a partner with Wards, and has more than 15 years’ experience in residential conveyancing. She has been with the firm since 2001, working on all aspects of residential property including freehold and leasehold sale and purchase, the creation of lease schemes for newly flats, adverse possession and other complicated Land Registry applications and transfer of equity. Rebecca is based in Wards’ Clevedon office and works across the firm’s 11 offices in the South West.

After gaining her law degree in 2000, Rebecca qualified as a solicitor in 2004, specialising in residential conveyancing and also in equine law since 2006. In her new role, she takes over from Susan Ellis who has recently retired.

Commenting, Rebecca said: “Moving into the role as head of conveyancing is a privilege. My goal is to continue to grow and support Wards’ conveyancing team which already consists of many experienced and knowledgeable people. While these are challenging times, we are working hard to provide our clients with the excellent service they are used to.”

Wards’ Managing Partner David Sheridan added “Rebecca is a highly experienced conveyancer who really understands our business, and our clients. Her promotion is well deserved and reflects the hard work and effort she has put in over the years.”
