Familiar face joins Guest Walker residential conveyancing team

York-based property law specialist Guest Walker has added to its residential conveyancing team with the appointment of Jenny Bell.

Bell originally worked for the firm more than 10 years ago. She has two decades of experience in residential conveyancing, having previously worked for a number of firms in Yorkshire, including Hague & Dixon and Switalskis.

At Guest Walker, Bell will focus on traditional conveyancing such as house and flat sales and purchases, re-mortgages, lease extensions, transfers of equity and equity release, as well as providing advice on building and managing property portfolios and investing in buy-to-let property.

Guest Walker director John Walker said: “We are thrilled to welcome Jenny back to the business as we expand our residential conveyancing team. Jenny has excellent local knowledge and shares our ethos of providing a high-quality personal service to our clients, something which stands us apart from the large, online conveyancing firms.”

Commenting on her appointment, Bell said: “I am delighted to be re-joining Guest Walker. I love working in the centre of York for such a highly regarded, established firm and I am looking forward to working with the team, many of whom I worked with previously.”

She added: “The conveyancing industry has changed a lot since I was last working at Guest Walker, with an increasing number of faceless online firms. However, Guest Walker have continued to provide a friendly, personal, bespoke service to their clients, something which is completely aligned with my values and way of working—it feels like I’m coming home!”
