I have experience in all areas of residential conveyancing, including sales, purchases, remortgages and transfers of equity; leasehold and freehold property; shared ownership; right to buy and
help to buy; declarations of trust. I have also been involved in transactions including option agreements, overage agreements and acquisitions and sales of part in respect of small developers.
In commercial conveyancing, I have acted in the sales and purchases of retail shops, both leasehold and freehold, cafes, industrial units, granting and transfers of leases, licences to assign and authorised guarantee agreements and dealing with matters both inside and outside of the Landlord and Tenant Act 1954.
I have also acted for clients in agricultural and rural property matters, including sales and purchases of land, woodland, manor houses and remortgages of farms and agricultural land.
My aspirations as a lawyer:
I relish the intellectual stimulation and challenge of being a lawyer, I love the problem solving element of the job, I enjoy establishing a rapport with my clients and knowing that I have done the best job possible for them.
Legal Career History
A mature entrant to the legal profession, I graduated from the University of Hull in 1998 with a 2.1 Honours Degree in Law. A year later I completed my Legal Practice Course, at the College of Law in York. I qualified in 2001, after serving my training contract at a small firm of solicitors in Goole. Since then I have worked in various types of legal organisations from typical high street solicitors, to very large companies in various locations. I worked in Manchester for nearly two years before returning to the Grimsby area in 2014 to set up Barrass White Legal.
Outside of work
I have three grown up children and 5 grandchildren and like to spend time with them. I like to think I have a young outlook for a 50 something year old and often seek to do different and slightly barmy things such as taking part in triathalons (as a less than average swimmer) and trying out Go Ape and parascending, (as someone not particularly keen on heights).
I love to travel. I have been to Hong Kong, the Philipinnes, Australia and the USA as well as the usual places in Europe. I love experiencing new sights, sounds and cultures although am not very adventurous about the food. I also enjoy trips to theatre - slightly problematic in Grimsby - but fabulous while living in Salford Quays where I had a theatre almost on my doorstep. I also like to read, cycle, swim, enjoy quizzes and like to play brain training games on my iPad.
