Michaela De Paola

Solicitor and FCILEX

I am solicitor and a fellow of CILEX having qualified in August 2021.

In October 2015, I joined the property department where I have gained an extensive range of knowledge surrounding all aspects of residential property transactions. In particular, I am experienced in freehold and leasehold sales, purchases, transfers of equity and re-mortgages.

I have a particular expertise in shared ownership practice and act on behalf of housing associations in the granting of leases and plot sales.

I adopt a commercial and collaborative approach to ensure that the needs of my clients are met by tailoring my advice and communicating promptly and clearly. I also work closely with team members within our matrimonial and private client departments to make sure that matters are dealt with sensitively in a timely manner during what can sometimes be a stressful process.

Since joining Buckles in November 2013, I have also acquired a 1st class BA honours degree in Business Management and a distinction in the LPC with a Masters in Law.

My hobbies include travelling, dog-walking, going to the gym and enjoying a few cocktails at the weekend!
