West Midlands law firm FBC Manby Bowdler has strengthened the Residential Property team at its Wolverhampton branch with the appointment of a new Senior Associate Solicitor.

Gurdev Singh Mann has joined the team to specialise in residential conveyancing matters, including buying and selling freehold and leasehold properties, transfer of equity plus mortgages and re-mortgages.

Gurdev brings with him a wealth of experience in residential property matters, having worked for regional and national law firms dealing with clients based in locations stretching from London to the West Midlands.

Head of the conveyancing team, Jarna Rahman, welcoming Gurdev to the firm, said: “The residential property market is booming and our services are very much in demand currently. That means Gurdev will be hitting the ground running to ensure we continue to deliver a stellar service to our clients, working tirelessly to ensure property matters are made simple and easy to navigate. We’re delighted to welcome him to our experienced team.”

Gurdev added: “It’s an exciting time to be joining FBC Manby Bowdler, with the housing market booming thanks to the Stamp Duty holiday which was introduced last July. Property transactions have increased by more than 200% in the last year according to HMRC and it will be interesting to see what happens towards the end of the year with the land tax returning to normal.”
