I administer the Party Wall …Etc… Act 1996 (‘96Act) to facilitate the wishes of building owners, who wish to improve or alter their properties close to adjoining properties. Adjoining properties may need protection prior to, during and after works of alteration/extension has been completed, in accordance with the provisions set out in the ’96 Act.
I have a wide range of interests and hobbies, some have developed for me into passions. One of these passions is following the progress of nine grandchildren. I am very lucky!
I reserve six weeks every year for skiing; I play golf at least twice a week (when I am not skiing!). I love cooking.
I spent 20 years working for the Royal Hong Kong Jockey Club as a horse racing official (Official Starter 1986 – 2000), property advisor and chief administrator for one of the first programs to care for the needs of retired racehorses when their racing careers have ended. A lot of what I started in 1986 in Hong Kong is now followed in UK – Rehabilitation of Retired Racehorses.
Both George and Richard adore their horses with a passion they do not hide, they are good trainers, good communicators and they ensure that the syndicates of which I am a member have enormous fun. I hold a qualification from the BHS (British Horse Society) as a riding instructor.
I enjoy helping those who need the property valuation and property administrative skills which I have obtained over a ‘few years’ through qualification and experience. I am sometimes asked ….’Isn’t it about time you retired?’
