Jon heads up the firm’s residential conveyancing department and moves around our offices regularly, although is primarily based in our Redhill headquarters.
He is a specialist in residential property matters including sales, purchases, remortgages, transfers of equity and landlord and tenant matters.
Jon’s background has been in the West End and the City and he joined Morr &Co in September 2017 from Charles Russell Speechlys where he had been practicing (including with its predecessor firms) for some 13 years.
Jon’s background and expertise has centred around acting for a range of clients including individuals and companies (both onshore and offshore) and lenders in respect of a significant array of residential property matters. Jon’s experience ranges from acting for first time buyers purchasing a freehold house to acting for wealthy offshore individuals purchasing multimillion pound leasehold properties in prime central London.
Jon has a particular background in acting for clients in high value transactions, in London and outside of it, meaning that he has a true appreciation for what it takes to make such transactions tick. Jon also specialises in acting for lenders in respect of their secured mortgage lending and also in statutory lease extensions and leasehold enfranchisement, where Jon liaises closely with Morr & Co’s specialist lawyers in this area.
Jon’s considerable experience in residential property matters allows him to combine his technical expertise with a commercial and practical awareness to ensure that clients achieve what they really want – not for obstacles to be put down, but to facilitate a risk-managed property transaction in accordance within the required timescale and where the client is always aware of how matters are progressing.
Examples of work
- Acting for a client on the purchase of a £16m house in North London
- Acting for a client on the sale of a £18.5m house in Kensington
- Acting for a lender in respect of an £8m facility to an offshore company
- Acting for many clients in their purchase of +£2m rural or semi-rural properties
Jon’s two very young children seem to have left him with very little time for other interests but it is safe to say that if his enthusiasm for golf matched his skill then he would be a very fine golfer! Jon is a long-suffering Crystal Palace FC fan and enjoys a good walk.
