Post Completions Assistant, Residential Conveyancing, Chester

The Post Completions Assistant role

The main focus of the Post Completions Assistant role will be to effectively manage the inception and post completions process for our conveyancing executives and assistants. Whilst you’ll be part of a large conveyancing department, which spans two of our offices, you’ll work as part of a small team in an administrative focussed role.

Providing exceptional levels of internal customer service and ensuring that post completions deadlines are met, you’ll play a big part in ensuring our award-winning service delivers for our clients.

    • Serving any notices to landlords.
    • Registering new owners with the Land Registry.
  • Liaising with residential conveyancing teams across our sites to ensure that any outstanding queries are fully resolved at the earliest opportunity.
  • Closing and archiving files, ensuring all case management and paper based folders are completed fully.

What we’re looking for:

  • A strong administrator with excellent organisational skills and the proven ability to effectively manage multiple deadlines.
  • Experience within residential conveyancing desirable, but full training will be given.
  • A knowledge of post completion processes for freehold, leasehold, shared ownership and new build properties is ideal.
  • High levels of attention to detail and accuracy.
  • Strong communication skills.
  • IT literate with case management experience/ Land Registry portal knowledge.
