LCF Residential, the conveyancing division of law firm, LCF Law, has appointed licensed conveyancer, Tracey Lynam, to head up conveyancing services in its Ilkley office.

LCF Residential works with home buyers and sellers, as well as estate agents and nearly every UK mortgage lender. Its 30-strong team are based across LCF Law’s offices in Leeds, Bradford, Harrogate and Ilkley.

Tracey previously worked at LCF Law between 2001 and 2004 and since then has worked for several other leading residential conveyancing firms in Yorkshire.

Tracey, who lives just outside Ilkley and has family in the town, said: “When the opportunity arose to make the move back to LCF Law’s Ilkley office, it was a perfect fit for me. I live locally and after working at several city centre firms, I really missed the face-to-face client contact and personal interaction that you get working at a local office for local clients.

“It’s great to be back and I’m really enjoying the role and the challenges it presents in the current market, which is extremely active as the stamp duty holiday comes to an end and returns to previous stamp duty rates at the end of September.”

Julie Davis, head of residential property, said: “We have been particularly busy over the last few months, following the extension of the stamp duty holiday, and demand continues to grow for our services. Tracey has plenty of experience and a fantastic reputation in the industry, which made her an obvious choice to lead our team in Ilkley.”
