Richard is a Partner and Solicitor in our Residential Conveyancing team, working closely with clients and colleagues in all aspects of conveyancing work. Richard conducts sales, purchases and re-mortgages, often involving complex titles such as new builds, shared ownership and unregistered land.
Richard qualified as a Solicitor in 2005 and, prior to joining Barrett & Co in early 2017, worked in a law firm on the South Coast in Gosport, where he developed his knowledge and expertise within their conveyancing team.
Since joining Barrett & Co., Richard has acquired a lot of experience in conveyances involving unregistered land, which is somewhat unusual in a built-up area such as Reading! He has refined his skills in deducing title to such properties, on occasion researching ancient unregistered mortgages and rights of way dating back to the 1800s which might otherwise have passed unnoticed but would have caused huge difficulties and costs for the purchasing party had these not been identified.
Outside the office, Richard spends most of his time with his family where his young son keeps him extremely busy with activities including swimming and trips to the park. Richard also enjoys running, swimming and exploring the Caribbean Islands with his family. He dreams of one day owning a sea plane and a holiday home in Ibiza (with a dock for his sea plane of course)!
