Property Lawyer on the Move
Property lawyer Kathryn Hill has joined Burnetts' West Cumbria office where she will work alongside solicitor Tracy Stainton, advising on residential conveyancing including the sales and purchase of homes, remortgages and buy to let properties.
Property lawyer Kathryn Hill has joined Burnetts’ West Cumbria office from Milburns Solicitors in Workington.
With over 17 years’ experience in property law, Kathryn will work primarily from Burnetts’ Cockermouth office, alongside solicitor Tracy Stainton, advising on residential conveyancing including the sales and purchase of homes, remortgages and buy to let properties.
A former pupil at Southfield Secondary School and Workington 6th Form Centre, Kathryn has specialised in conveyancing throughout her career. She qualified as a Fellow of the Institute of Legal Executives in 2003. She has been involved in the sale and purchase of thousands of homes in West Cumbria and knows well the land and property quirks of the region.
Kathryn, who is the daughter of George and Alison Chambers of local family firm Chambers Joinery and Homecentre said, “I’m West Cumbrian born and bred, and I have worked in the area my whole life. There’s not many places in West Cumbria where I haven’t bought or sold houses and between us, there’s not many people Tracy and I don’t know. Already I feel very settled at Burnetts and I’m appreciating the fact that there are so many specialists here you can turn to if you need support
Tracy Stainton, Burnetts’ Head of West Cumbria said, “I’d worked with Kathryn before and I knew how talented she was. When it became clear that we needed a conveyancing expert for West Cumbria, I knew straightaway that she would be the right person for the role. She has an extensive knowledge of the local area as well as being very well-organised and calm – she’s just the sort of lawyer you want when you’re moving house!”
Outside of work Kathryn is a trustee of the Phyllis Harney Trust which helps people in financial hardship in West Cumbria.All News
