Lease extension specialist retires after 32 years

Lease extension expertDecember 2013 saw the end of an era for our lease extension work. Mary Hunt, one of our leasehold extension experts finally retired.

Mary had been with the firm for almost 32 years without a break. She initially joined Salisbury Solicitors,  Pye-Smiths, all the way back on January 31 1981, and transferred over to us at Bonallack and Bishop when the two law firms merged eight years ago.

Senior partner Tim Bishop, commented “we are really going to miss Mary. Over those years, doing nothing but extend residential leases, she became a real expert – and we are really going to notice her retirement. Nonetheless, she worked really hard in transferring much of a the knowledge she had accumulated over the years across to the other members of our specialist team. Hers are really big shoes to fill. Nonetheless, I wish her well in her retirement – and hope she enjoys having more time to spend with her beloved fishing”.

Tim added, “despite Mary’s retirement, we have continuing plans to expand our team – and are hoping for a further 100% increase in the amount of leasehold extension, enfranchisement and right to manage work we carry out for leaseholders and freeholders alike, throughout England and Wales, in the course of the next three years”.
