About Sarah

Sarah works in the Residential Property department in the Sheffield office and deals with all aspects of residential property transactions. These include purchases, sales, re-mortgages, transfers, gifts, investment property and portfolio management and re-finance.

She has spent the past 12 years working in both residential and commercial property and is committed to embracing technology to ensure a smooth and transparent transaction for clients.  Having trained initially as a Barrister, she enjoys tackling challenging matters and using her legal research skills to provide a solution for the client.

When not at work

Sarah has two young children and is often found organising their social diaries and after school activities! She is also heavily involved with a local theatre school and spends many weekends co-ordinating the entertainment at many corporate events.  When she does get some time to herself, she can be found at the gym or simply relaxing in front of the TV with a good crime drama.

Sarah, thank you for putting my faith back in solicitors! I will certainly be using you for any future needs and recommending you at Luptons without hesitation.

Since joining Lupton Fawcett, I have nothing but praise for the way they have dealt with my affairs. Sarah (Sargent) and her team have handled several difficult transfers which they inherited from my previous solicitors (for whom I had lost all confidence in). Going forward, I have numerous property sales in 2017 and a large development of 14 executive houses which will be ongoing for the next 2-3 years. I'm looking forward to the future knowing that my legal requirements are in the hands of a competent team. I have recommended Sarah to several of my friends and business associates
