A new solicitor has been appointed to Oswestry’s leading property law team during the busiest year in its firm’s 51-year history.
GHP Legal, which has had offices in Willow Street since 2000 after merging with law firm Brown & Lloyd, opened a dedicated property department in 2019 at 21 The Cross, for which it won a Civic Award.
Based in a dedicated building that formerly housed the town’s Co-operative bank, GHP Legal’s property department is one of the largest in the region and offers a full range of services to residential, commercial and agricultural property clients.
The latest addition to the firm’s residential property team is Myfanwy Murray. Myfanwy previously worked for two years as a solicitor in Chester where she handled a broad caseload covering registered and unregistered land transactions, freehold and leasehold sales and purchases, re-mortgages, new builds, shared ownership, equity release, auction, agricultural, and transfers of equity.
A former Llanfyllin High School student, Myfanwy graduated from Sheffield University with a 2:1 degree before gaining her Legal Practice Certificate with a merit at the University of Law, Chester, in 2017. Prior to her appointment with GHP Legal she was vice president of Oswestry BNI Rhythm.
Welcoming Myfanwy to the firm, Hywel Jones, a partner of GHP Legal and member of the Property team, said: “It has been an extremely busy year for the property team, with the housing market nationally and locally seeing a record number of transactions as buyers rushed to make the most of the stamp duty holiday.
“We are always on the lookout for local talent and Myfanwy certainly fits the bill. She is highly recommended, both by local agents and clients, and with her local connections is a welcome addition to the team at what is currently a particularly busy time’
