You need someone who really knows the Barbican and its peculiarities.
Can things go wrong? Yes, they can.
The Barbican is one place where detailed local knowledge really does matter. The lease, the service charges, the rules about alterations, the complicated split between private and public areas, these all make the Barbican different from any other development in London.
Solicitors who are not familiar with the Barbican can kill a deal. You don’t need the sellers getting fed up with delays and pulling out.
Christine Corion is your best choice
Christine Corion of Bishop & Sewell knows everything about buying in the Barbican. I spent 30 years as a solicitor helping people to buy flats here. For 24 of those years Christine was my right hand – and she was a lot better at it than I was.
Now we have merged with Bishop & Sewell, one of the top property law firms in this part of London, and Christine can be reached there on 020 7631 4141.
Bishop & Sewell LLP,
59-60 Russell Square,
