Scaiff welcomes two new faces to their growing conveyancing team

Nicola Arlin

Sciaff LLP welcomes two new members of the conveyancing team, Nicola Arlin and Philippa Baker.

Nicola is an experienced conveyancer, having worked in the property industry for over 20 years. She specialises in new build properties and has worked for various national house builders (as well as smaller, more bespoke builders) dealing with all aspects of site set-up for new developments from site infrastructure agreements, housing association sales, the formation of management companies and management company schemes, to setting up the legal documentation for the sale of new homes on an estate.

Dedicated to customer service, Nicola has been actively involved in improving customer
satisfaction with a former developer client, remaining at the forefront of her service offering ever since. Nicola understands that buying and selling a home can be an extremely emotional and stressful time, even for her more experienced developer clients, and she will do all she can to alleviate the stress that this can produce, particularly by keeping her clients fully updated on the progress of their conveyancing transaction.

Nicola also enjoys helping first-time buyers, those moving home and anyone buying or
selling a house or flat. She says “Buying a first home can be a really stressful and daunting
experience. I enjoy helping my first time buyer clients understand the process, giving them
the understanding and confidence to deal with professionals that they have probably never had to deal with before, such as mortgage brokers, insurance companies, surveyors and estate agents.”

Nicola can help you with all your conveyancing needs – from a house sale, purchase,
transfer of equity, unregistered title, right to buy, help to buy, remortgage and shared
ownership transactions.

Philippa Baker

Paralegal, Philippa Baker, has been working within the conveyancing environment for 20
years. She has a broad range of experience dealing with all conveyancing matters and
joined the firm alongside Nicola.

Philippa enjoys the buzz of a busy department, helping clients with their queries and forming strong relationships with the local agents.

Elizabeth Rimell, Partner at Scaiff says “Nicola has a great reputation with her clients and
professional contacts alike. Her knowledge and expertise in handling conveyancing matters, alongside her exceptional customer service will be a welcome addition to the firm which prides itself on constant positive feedback from happy clients. Phillipa is also a welcome addition to the conveyancing team and it’s great to have them both on board.”

Combining years of experience and expert knowledge of the conveyancing market in the
Worcestershire areas, Nicola and Philippa will help make sure that you receive a prompt and efficient service, regardless of whether you are selling or buying your home, it will be stress free.
