Anna Knowles

Anna Knowles - Associate Solicitor
Associate Solicitor • Kendal

I am an experienced commercial property solicitor, advising clients on all types of freehold and leasehold sales and purchases, including high street shops, industrial units, offices, caravan parks, restaurants and development land. I have expertise in Landlord and Tenant matters, option agreements and secured lending and also deal with asset sales and purchases for local businesses. I also advise on domestic sales and purchases.

I graduated in English, then converted to Law and completed my legal training in the southeast. After qualifying, I joined top 100 law firm, DLA Piper in Leeds, followed by Leeds firm Lupton Fawcett, where I gained extensive commercial property experience acting for major retail clients. In 2006, I returned to the area that I grew up in and joined THW in 2007.

I like to spend time cycling, fell-walking and enjoying the outdoors with my family.

“ Thank you so much for helping us out with getting the right person to work on this for us. Anna was a pleasure to deal with, she was very efficient and was fantastic at keeping things moving along with some not very helpful opposite numbers! The whole process was very smooth from start to finish and she explained everything thoroughly as well as keeping us well informed about what was going on. She was also a lovely person to speak with generally and great to have someone who was as keen to see the end result as we were. ”

“ Anna Knowles dealt with the sale of our home and the purchase of our new home most efficiently. Everything was done to time and we couldn't have wished for more, thank you Anna. ”

“ Because I live 150 miles away, the process of gathering information about the property and passing on answers to the buyer's solicitors fell to Ms Knowles. This was obviously of great benefit to myself and I was kept informed at all stages of the procedure with a very satisfactory outcome. ”

“ Very happy with our dealings with Anna and Dorothy. Everything was made clear, good explanations. Service, advice and assistance as good as ever. ”
