We are currently seeking to recruit a highly experienced Residential Property Legal Secretary in Bournemouth to join our Residential Property team.

What experience is required?

The role would suit someone with experience of working as a residential property legal secretary, although we will consider applications from experienced commercial property legal secretaries with a willingness to learn.  Working within the firm’s Property Group, on occasion the team provides additional secretarial cover, where required, to the firm’s Commercial Property and Residential Development teams.

The successful candidate will be IT literate, highly competent and will be able to manage a varied workload to include secretarial assistance, document production, file and diary management, office administration and assisting with routine aspects of real estate transactions including Stamp Duty Land Tax returns and Land Registry applications.
