Canary Wharf, London

Contract Type
Full Time
A leading law firm with multiple offices are currently expanding their Property department, and require an experienced Real Estate Paralegal to join them in their offices in Canary Wharf.

This firm has an excellent reputation, developed over many years, and the quality of the work that they undertake is exceptionally high. This role will see the successful Property Paralegal supporting a Commercial Property Partner in his commercial property case load, whilst also providing ad hoc support to the residential property team.

You will be involved in a varied case load including (but not limited to):

Commercial Property

• Drafting and negotiating new leases
• Drafting Agreements for Lease
• Acquiring all manner of commercial property premises
• Acquiring business with property focus
• Secured lending
• Leasehold alienation and estate management
• Drafting Deeds of Variation
• Post completion formalities
• Experience of dealing with telecommunications
• Dealing with alcohol licensing

To be considered you will have gained at least 12 months experience within real estate (ideally covering both commercial property and residential, however you MUST have covered commercial property and have a good "hands on" knowledge allowing you to "hit the ground running"), whilst working in a highly respected law firm. You will ideally have gained at least 2:1 classification in your degree, and potentially gone on to study your LPC (not essential). Unfortunately those who do not have any property experience will not be considered for this role.

The successful candidate will benefit from excellent on-going training and career development. You will join a relaxed yet professional culture where your efforts will be recognised and rewarded. There is the possibility of a training contract (for 2018/2019 start) although this is not guaranteed.
