A team from law firm Vincents Solicitors’ Winckley Square head office has moved to create a residential property hub in Penwortham.

The change is due to a ‘huge increase’ in conveyancing work for the Vincents team, which has also established similar hubs in Lytham and Chorley.

The department now employs more than 20 people across the company, and recruitment is continuing.

New Penwortham branch head Jemma Lloyd said: “We’re delighted to be bringing this dedicated service to Penwortham to support homebuyers across Preston and South Ribble. 

“There is definitely a large and growing demand for fast and efficient conveyancing at the moment; in fact I’ve never known a busier market, so I’m pleased that our newly expanded team will be in place to assist buyers.

“The extension to the Stamp Duty holiday is certainly driving higher demand, along with incentives such as Help to Buy and the new government-backed Mortgage Guarantee scheme, so people are trying to make the most of things while they can. 

“There’s also the interest from people needing more space as homeworking continues, and we’ve seen hundreds of new build homes in the local area which has also boosted sales.”

As a local resident, Jemma knows the area well and is keen for the team to become familiar faces in the town.

She added: “Although we won’t be able to meet with people face-to-face for the time being, we are only at the end of the phone and available by email, and we can offer video calls for anyone who wants them. 

“And, as soon as we can reopen the Liverpool Road office fully, we’re really looking forward to welcoming clients in for a coffee and a chat.”
