Jessica McKenzie

Yorkshire law firm Holden Smith has appointed Jess McKenzie as head of new build property.

The property lawyer has over 17 years’ conveyancing experience and will assist both developers and purchasers with the buying and selling of new build homes.

Ms McKenzie said: “Holden Smith is a dynamic, forward thinking law firm and I am pleased to be joining at a time of significant growth to develop our specialist new build property team and offer a specialist service in this area to our clients.

“New build conveyancing can often be complex as more things can go wrong with the build, such as homes not being built in accordance with the original plans, so it is important clients can work with a solicitor who is experienced in handling the nuances that can impact a new build sale or purchase.”

James Smith, co-founder and director at Holden Smith, said: “Jess brings expertise in a specialist area of law to Holden Smith. Her wealth of experience and background will ensure all our new build clients access the very best legal support, whether they are developers looking to sell new build houses, or residential purchasers looking to buy a new build property.”

Holden Smith was founded in 2019 by James Smith and David Bancroft and employs a team of 60 people. The firm specialises in residential and commercial conveyancing, family law, and wills and probate, with offices in Huddersfield, Leeds, Halifax and Ilkley.
