Staffordshire law firm increases staff numbers amid rapid expansion
A Staffordshire law firm has built new conveyancing and made rapid growth – with net fees projected to be around £300,000 – creating five jobs.
The ORJ team, headed by director of new build conveyancing Sukhi Sandhu, is currently dealing with 290 files across 40 sites and works closely with several major developers, including Barratt Homes, Taylor Wimpey, Bellway Homes, Persimmon Homes and St. Modwen Homes.
Developers working with ORJ benefit from a bespoke reporting system with a single customer view of all the relevant information, giving immediate updates on all issues. Meanwhile, one call to their nominated contact will elicit immediate verification of the status of a given property within the exchange process.
Commenting on the expansion, Sandhu said: “The new build sector differs to typical house buying and selling because it’s governed by certain constraints so we adopt a specialist approach to ensure that exchanges are completed on time, every time.
“Our fast, responsive service, coupled with expertise in the new build process, including an understanding of complex residential estate documentation for site set-up and subsequent plot sales, means we can ensure a hassle-free transaction for both builder and homeowner.”
ORJ takes time to get to know developers, holding regular meetings with sales teams on site and instigating a weekly communications call to keep everyone updated. A single point of contact within the ORJ team, who works directly on a client’s portfolio, ensures that developers can get answers about a particular residential scheme quickly and easily.
Ryan Adams, part exchange manager at Taylor Wimpey, added: “All developers appreciate that new build conveyancing is characterised by tight timescales so it’s reassuring to work with a law firm that knows the process inside out and can cope with the pressures. We’re also confident that ORJ understands Taylor Wimpey as a business and will get the job done to our exacting standards.”
