Residential Property


Profile/Experience

David is head of the residential property department.

He qualified as a Chartered Legal Executive in 1989 having worked in the legal profession since 1982. Prior to that he worked in the financial sector. Chartered Legal Executives are qualified lawyers who qualify in their specialism, in David’s case, residential property and related matters.

During his career in law David has principally been dealing with residential property sales, purchases and mortgages but also handles rights of way and other property related matters. Since 1986 David has been based in Oswestry, previously  heading LG Solicitors' residential property department prior to their merger with Lanyon Bowdler in May 2010. Following the merger David took responsibility for the residential property teams in the Shrewsbury, Telford and Ludlow offices as well as Oswestry and with the subsequent merger with Lewis and Co in Hereford later that year, this office was added to list. In April 2013 he joined the Lanyon Bowdler partnership.

Until recently David sat on the Land Registry Advisory Council (and it’s predecessor the Business Users Group, for some 12 years in total), representing the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives. Using his many years in the profession, David assisted the Advisory Council in advising the Land Registry on their role in the property sphere from a practitioners perspective, and whether there are other services they could offer that would assist the process.

David is an active member of the Rotary Club of Oswestry and a past President. He lives at, and helps run the family farm in the Snowdonia National Park.
