Jane Macdonald

Property Compliance

Jane joined Nowell Meller in 2008 having already worked with our Director Jane Matthewman for many years at another local Law firm.

Jane has over 30 year’s legal experience and has considerable knowledge in Residential Conveyancing and Land Law.

Jane gave up being a full-time caseworker a few years ago to pursue her studies in fashion and now works for the firm part-time at our Stafford office primarily covering:

  • Conveyancing administration
  • Compliance issues
  • Quality scheme memberships, panels memberships etc
  • Support for our residential teams

Jane’s Approach: The administration work is necessary to facilitate the smooth running of the conveyancing department and ensures firm compliance with the many and varied requirements of quality schemes and lender panels. As a problem solver with great attention to detail, Jane often also deals with the more complex unregistered and adverse possession registrations and associated matters.

Personal Background: Jane was born in Suffolk but has lived and worked in a number of locations including Brighton, London, Germany, Devon and NE Scotland and now lives in Staffordshire.   She has enjoyed diverse occupations before joining a legal practice, such as being a film extra, theatrical costumier, masseuse, gallery owner and running a saddle club/livery yard.   Jane loves nothing more than spending time making her seamstress creations.

Nowell Meller Journey: Initially Jane joined Nowell Meller as a Personal Assistant but then stepped into a conveyancer role at the Burslem office before moving over to our Stafford office and her administration role.
