John Rutherford, Solicitor at Preston Goldburn
As confidence returns to the housing market
in Cornwall, Falmouth-based solicitor's firm Preston Goldburn has boosted the
strength of its residential conveyancing department with the appointment of solicitor
Mr Rutherford, who has 19 years experience
as a solicitor and has practised in Cornwall since 1996, has his finger on the
pulse of the county's housing market and joins a busy legal team that has seen
a recent surge in property transactions.
Mr Rutherford said: "The Falmouth and Penryn
area stands on its own two feet and is growing while other parts of Cornwall
may have suffered more as a result of the recession. I think the impact of the
development of Falmouth University has contributed to placing this area in a
unique position in terms of the property market and there is a wide variety of
properties to suit all budgets."
Mr Rutherford has a particular experience
in the legal work involved in shared ownership schemes which are growing in
popularity and enable people who would not otherwise be able to afford to buy
their first home to get a step on the housing ladder.
