Chartered Institute of Legal Executives
Chartered Legal Executive - 2003
Carol joined the firm in 1998, initially at our Bedale office and then moving to Ripon. She assisted on a wide range of property-related matters and subsequently trained to be a Chartered Legal Executive, qualifying in June 2003 and becoming a Partner in August 2012.
Carol heads the residential conveyancing department at our Ripon office. She has wide experience in dealing with all aspects of conveyancing, including freehold and leasehold sales and purchases, re-mortgages, transfers of equity, new build purchases, shared ownership purchases and title rectification issues. We feel that Carol's professional but friendly approach helps our conveyancing clients to feel comfortable during what can be a stressful time.
Carol's spare time is largely spent with her husband. She enjoys long walks with her little Westie Taylor and is a regular at her local gym. When time allows she also enjoys a little pampering at her local Spa which she is a member of. Carol and her family are keen golfers, her husband being the resident professional at a local golf club.
Carol's presence at the firm provides something of a link to the firm's origins, her late grandfather having been the firm's founder partner. Her late father, Pat Heddon, was also a senior partner until his retirement in 1991.
