Thursfields Solicitors has recruited Louise Jones as its new head of residential property.

Ms Jones brings particular experience in the new-build sector to the practice which has offices in the Black Country and Worcestershire.

She offers advice in all areas of residential property from sales and purchases of freehold and leasehold property for first and second time buyers to the more complex property transactions for those seeking to add to their property portfolios.

Having worked in-house for one of the largest UK house-builders for the last eight years, Ms Jones also has substantial experience in all aspects of a new-build transaction, including Help to Buy and Shared Ownership.

Shane Miller, director and head of private client at Thursfields, said: "I am delighted to welcome Louise to the team.

"Her expertise with development work, coupled with her attention to detail and knowledge of her clients needs, will only seek to strengthen our team and increase the offering to our clients."
