As confidence returns to the housing market

in Cornwall, Falmouth-based solicitor's firm Preston Goldburn has boosted the

strength of its residential conveyancing department with the appointment of solicitor

John Rutherford.


Mr Rutherford, who has 19 years experience

as a solicitor and has practised in Cornwall since 1996, has his finger on the

pulse of the county's housing market and joins a busy legal team that has seen a

recent surge in property transactions.


Mr Rutherford said: "The Falmouth and

Penryn area stands on its own two feet and is growing while other parts of

Cornwall may have suffered more as a result of the recession. I think the

impact of the development of Falmouth University has contributed to placing

this area in a unique position in terms of the property market and there is a

wide variety of properties to suit all budgets."


Mr Rutherford has a particular experience

in the legal work involved in shared ownership schemes which are growing in

popularity and enable people who would not otherwise be able to afford to buy

their first home to get a step on the housing ladder.
