Rhiannon Beswick is a Chartered Legal Executive, having diligently worked her way through the legal profession, starting from a secretarial position. Rhi joined Arnold Thomson’s Commercial Property Team in 2017, bringing enthusiasm and many years of expertise to her role as a Commercial Property Lawyer. It was evident from Rhi’s first meeting with the Firm that she shares Arnold Thomson’s dedication and commitment to meeting clients’ expectations. She is an excellent addition to the team and to the Firm as a whole. In recognition of her hard work, diligence, and highly commendable client care, Rhi has been promoted to the role of Associate Lawyer; a challenge she relishes and will no doubt excel at.
Rhi’s areas of expertise include landlord and tenant matters such as the granting, acquiring and assignment of both residential and commercial leasehold interests – any necessary formal variation to such interests, commercial freehold property sale and purchase transactions, as well as associated lending formalities. Rhi particularly enjoys property transactions involving the acquisition and subsequent sale of developed land, those involving the auction process and land registration matters – including the first registration of a legal title with HM Land Registry or a claim for adverse possession.
In addition, she has considerable experience assisting landlords and/or management companies with the property related legal formalities of leasehold estate management and assisting Parish Councils with the varied land and property related matters encountered within their jurisdiction. Known to clients as a dependable and capable pair of hands, Rhi is accustomed to providing tailor-made solutions to clients’ needs and operates strictly on a one-hat-doesn’t-always-fit-all principle. She adopts a bespoke approach suitable to each client’s needs and best interest.
As Rhi’s role within the firm has progressed, she has gained considerable experience in assisting landowners with the granting and renewal of telecommunication mast Code Agreements. She is also able to assist with schemes involving solar energy, energy storage and biogas production. With transactions of this nature often taking the form of Option Agreements and Leases, they fall perfectly within her areas of expertise. Acutely aware of the future emphasis on environmentally friendly ways of producing energy, as well as the importance of the UK’s communication infrastructure, Rhi is excited to assist landowners in becoming part of such schemes.
Outside of work, Rhiannon enjoys attending yoga classes, reading, and spending time with her family. She is a proud fellow of the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives and is a founding and active member of the Cilex Northants and Beds Branch; currently holding the position of Branch Treasurer.
