Many landlords seek to prevent tenants from altering the property by including provisions in the lease which prohibit alterations without their consent. However, landlords may not have as much protection as they might think.
Stephanie is an Associate Director in the Property Development and Commercial Property Teams.
She qualified as a Solicitor in January 1999. Since joining Owen White in 2005 Stephanie has specialised in residential and mixed-use development, having previously worked in both residential conveyancing and commercial property fields.
As part of the Property Team, Stephanie advises national housebuilders and other regional developers. She also acts for smaller niche developers and land owners who wish to sell property to developers for residential development.
Her client list includes London Square Developments, McCarthy & Stone, Barratt, David Wilson Homes and Heathrow Airport. In addition, Stephanie assists the Commercial Property Team acting for both landlords and tenants.
Stephanie’s development work includes complex mixed-use developments, site acquisitions, options, bulk sale of affordable housing plots, Section 106 Agreements and joint venture arrangements. Her commercial property work involves advising on and dealing with the grant and assignment of both occupational leases and institutional long leases.
