SOUTH West law firm Coodes Solicitors has enhanced its offering to people buying and selling properties in and around Falmouth by appointing a new conveyancer.

A qualified solicitor, Lianne Priest brings 13 years’ experience in property and family law and has joined Coodes’ Falmouth office as a member of the residential property team.

Lianne said: “Joining Coodes is a fantastic opportunity for me to return to conveyancing. The firm has an excellent reputation, both for customer service and as an employer, and I am really looking forward to being part of the growing residential property team.

“I am really excited to be returning to my conveyancing roots and helping clients in and around Falmouth to buy and sell properties. My family experience will also be an asset, particularly in dealing with some of the complex issues around some property sales and purchases.”

Most recently, Lianne worked for Falmouth firm Hine Downing, where she held positions in the property and family departments. She grew up in the area and now lives in the town with her young family.

With a network of offices across Cornwall and Devon, Coodes Solicitors’ growing residential property team supports clients to buy and sell their home. It offers a number of specialist services for first time buyers, buy to let, affordable housing purchases and equity release mortgages.

The team was named Best in Cornwall for the third year in a row at the 2019 ESTAS Conveyancing Awards, which are based entirely on customer feedback.

Sarah Cowley, partner and head of residential property at Coodes Solicitors, said: “It is great to welcome Lianne to our Falmouth office. Her extensive legal career and local knowledge will be a fantastic asset to our team.

“Coodes is a large South West firm but we pride ourselves on offering a local service. Lianne’s appointment to our Falmouth office will help ensure we continue to offer the highest quality service to anyone who needs our expert legal advice to buy or sell a property.”
