Property law firm ready for new completions

Wilmslow-based law firm, JBGass, is welcoming the reopening of the property market with estate agents being told they could once again open their doors and the construction sector getting back on site.

JBGass were appointed to handle the conveyancing on 150 apartments at Globe Works, a £24m GDV mill conversion project being developed by their client, Empire, in Bolton.

The firm had previously acted on the acquisition of the former textile mill, a gateway site in the Bradshawgate area of the town but transactions were halted as a result of the pandemic.

Speaking about returning to a more normal business landscape, marketing director of JBGass, Rick Barrow said, “We are delighted to be able to help to get people moving again and help to play our part breathing new life into this stunning mill building.

“There is a lot of pent up demand in the property market and we expect a speedy rise in activity levels. Whilst people have been virtually viewing this particular site during lockdown it was difficult for sales to actually proceed. That will change now.”

JBGass has recently completed a number of prominent property deals including the purchase of the iconic Pyramid building in Stockport from the Co-Operative Bank for their client Eamar Developments.

They are also currently acting on behalf of Empire in the sale of a further 357 apartments across 5 sites as well as 10 executive homes in Sturton by Stow, Lincolnshire.
