A North East property lawyer has used her own conveyancing skills to move into new offices with a historical link her to her profession.
Sue Toomey has moved her Toomey Legal practice to Cramlington Village where she has taken over the Surveyors House which first appeared in maps of the town in the mid 1800s.
The building was previously a family home, a quarry office and an undertaker’s home for the nearby St Nicholas Church.
Business has grown by 200 percent year on year and Sue now has eight staff including an accountant and a will writer. During lockdown she used the time to train her staff and invested heavily in gaining qualifications for her team.
“The new building has a lot of character and it’s appropriate that we as property lawyers are in a surveyors house. It’s a great place to be able to meet as a team and reengage the family feel we had before lockdown,” said Sue. “We’d like to help charities and community groups by running events in our gardens.”
