Law firm Appleby recently advised a Jersey based family on the purchase of St John’s Manor Limited, the company which owns the property known as St John’s Manor in Jersey. The transaction was completed by share purchase in February.
The Manor is set in substantial grounds encompassing 58 acres with landscaped gardens and is regarded as one of the Channel Islands’ most prestigious country estates. Appleby’s Property team headed by Group Partner Tim Hart advised the purchasers, with the transaction being led by Counsel, Jonathan Anderson. Conveyancing Manager, David Le Brocq also assisted on the transaction alongside Appleby’s local employment team, who advised on the employee related aspects of the transaction.
Commenting on the transaction, Jonathan Anderson said: “This was a highly significant transaction in the Jersey residential market and one which we were delighted to be involved with, not least as it aligns perfectly with our recently launched high value residency proposition. We had to work closely with our clients, their other professional advisers as well as with other members of the Appleby team in order to achieve a successful outcome in what was a relatively challenging timescale.”
Appleby’s clients said of the transaction “We are delighted with the work that Appleby have done for us during the purchase of St John’s Manor. Jonathan has made the whole process much easier and our ability to call on Appleby’s various experts when necessary has been invaluable.”
