Anne Austin

  • Solicitor
  • Many thanks to Anne at David Gray Solucitors for her help with buying and selling a house on my Mum’s behalf. Given I was using a Power of Attorney and trying to do this from overseas I was unsure if anyone would be able to help, but Anne and her team made it all so easy. Having struggled in the past to get solicitors to respond to me I was very impressed by how responsive and proactive Anne was in handling my case. She was both friendly and professional, and I have complete confidence in her. I strongly recommend David Gray Solicitors to anyone looking for legal help.

    Anne & Nicola were a dream throughout purchasing my first home. It was not the easiest sale, I had a lot of questions... but Anne & Nicola went extra mile for me every time. I appreciate what they did massively. They are a credit to David Grays.

    We just wanted to take a moment this weekend to thank you for the support you’ve given us over the past few months.  In the past we were warned that home buying was going to be full of stress and uncertainty, but we were spared so much of that with your thorough service.

    My partner and I recently purchased our first home and as first time buyers didn't really have any idea about we were doing but Anne Austin and her team made this a very easy and quick process for us both. She was always on hand to answer any questions we had, delivered speedy responses and was just all round fantastic and so efficient. I would recommend her to anyone. Thank you!

    Client testimonial about Anne Austin - Property

    I act in residential house sales and purchases, re-mortgages, Council Right to Buys, transfers of equity and buy to lets. I have also spent some time dealing with freehold purchases and Lease extensions.

    Having recently moved house with my family I am all too well aware of the pressure involved when buying and selling a property. It does not matter whether you are a first-time buyer or a seasoned landlord buying your next rental property, I will always try my very best to ensure the transaction runs smoothly and completes with as little stress or anxiety to you. I will guide you through the process and will always routinely update a client. I regularly communicate with clients via email or over the phone and am always available to discuss any concerns.

    I feel it is important to understand from a client whether there are any time constraints or issues surrounding the property transaction and will work towards these if necessary. Selling or buying a property can be extremely stressful and a large part of my role as your solicitor is to alleviate this as much as I can and move things on in a swift and efficient manner.

    I also work in the Private Client department specialising in Probate matters, will making, powers of attorney, trust administration and estate/Inheritance Tax planning. These sensitive areas of lifetime issues and planning require careful consideration. I like to ensure a client feels confident at the end of my work that their affairs are in order.

    I also regularly provide advice to elderly clients about the transfer of the family home, and liability for care home fees. This is becoming an ever-increasing issue for families with our ageing population. I feel it is important to provide all-round advice to a client and their family about the implications and issues involved.

    I have a Law degree from Cardiff University and have worked in various law firms in the North East since 2006. I joined David Gray Solicitors in 2010 as a paralegal and qualified as a Solicitor in 2014; I have worked in the Property and Private Client Department since then.
