Sandra is an Associate Solicitor and Head of Real Estate Development. She has over 20 years experience of property and land transactions at all levels of complexity including residential, commercial, mixed use, development and agricultural and business sales and purchases.
Sandra joined BLB in 2017 after leaving her previous firm where she headed up the Commercial Property Department.
“Thank you Sandra for your first Class service. Your ability to balance pragmatism with diligence and rigour sets you apart from other organisations. We have valued your support and counsel on several purchases now and we will most certainly continue to use you moving forward.” Bath Property Group
Sandra has a particular interest in development work including site acquisitions and drafting the documentation for subsequent plot sales, with particular expertise in Option Agreements, Overage Agreements and Conditional Contracts. Having dealt with developments and complex transactions of all sizes, this work enables her to utilise her first class knowledge, meticulous attention to detail and drafting skills.
In addition to development work, Sandra also deals with all aspects of commercial and high value residential property, working as necessary alongside the Dispute Resolution Team in drafting Agreements/Deeds following settlement.
“I’ve used many other local solicitors through my years of trading in the property market and would like to say Mrs Carleton from BLB is friendly, professional, experienced and has a quick turn around on workload.” SC, BLB client
Sandra’s tenacity has resulted in some very successful decisions made by the Land Registry in favour of her clients in respect of applications for adverse possession or rectification of the title. These involve comprehensive evidence gathering and drafting skills which can make all the difference between success and failure, ie the ability to sell houses or not.
Outside of work Sandra likes quizzes and walking.
