We are pleased to welcome Sara Fewell who has become the newest member of our legal team in Salisbury. Sara, who qualified as a Licensed Conveyancer in 2010 joins our Residential Property department bringing enthusiasm and experience to the position. In particular, Sara will lead the team dealing with all aspects of conveyancing for the military, including property purchases using both the MoD’s Long Service Advance of Pay and Armed Forces Home Ownership Scheme.

Prior to joining Bonallack & Bishop, Sara worked for firms in Southampton and Bristol alongside studying for the Council for Licensed Conveyancers exams. Her experience spans all areas of residential conveyancing so for advice on sales or purchases, remortgaging or transferring equity, get in touch with Sara. Whether buying or selling a property, developing a strong relationship with your conveyancer is essential. Sara recognises this and enjoys building a rapport with her clients and keeping them informed throughout the legal process.

Tim Bishop, the firm’s Senior Partner, expressed his excitement at adding Sara to the team, saying, “Sara’s experience as a conveyancer strengthens our Residential Property team and we are sure that her clients will appreciate her personable manner and commitment to easing the stress of moving home. I’m particularly pleased that she has good experience of dealing with the military – as we are seeing an increasing number of military clients buying property using both the LSAP and AFHOS schemes”.
