Abbie Bielby

Abbie is a first year trainee at Rollits. Her current seat is in the Property department.

After completing two years of work as a paralegal at Rollits I am excited to start my Period of Recognised Training with the firm and eager to see what new challenges it will bring.

I spent the latter part of my time as a paralegal working from home due to Covid 19 social distancing requirements, and I am happy to be back in the office adapting to the new normal surrounded by familiar faces (albeit from a  distance) as I begin my new role!

My first seat is in the Property department and I have been able to hit the ground running dealing with all aspects residential sales and purchases. Given the current Stamp Duty holiday, my six months in the department will no doubt be busy as people make the most of the duty relief, and I am looking forward to the challenges this will bring and the new skills I will develop along the way.

I have also being assisting our Registered Social Landlord client’s with the grant of shared ownership leases as well as Right to Buy sales. I have been able to look at Section 106 Agreements on paper and see how their mechanisms to provide social housing work in reality.

I have also been working on applications to the Land Registry for the first registration of unregistered properties -  it is always rewarding when these applications complete.

The variation of work means that everyday is different and an opportunity to learn something new and I am excited to see what the next six months will bring!
