Polly Reeve

Senior Associate, Private Client

Polly is a Senior Associate in the Landed Estates team. Polly has extensive experience and has handled a wide range of high profile estate transactions. This has included the sale and purchase of estates of historical importance and portfolios of investment agricultural property, with residential and commercial aspects.

She has particular expertise in acting for landowners in realising the development potential of their land. This ranges from small scale option agreements and conditional contracts for small scale developments to the promotion of larger scale residential developments. She also acts for clients in the negotiation of more complicated hybrid promotion and option agreements for large scale residential and mixed use developments.

Polly also advises clients on a range of other matters, including re-financing of estate assets, negotiating easements across estate land, often with renewable infrastructure providers, and frequently deals with a range of landlord and tenant matters that arise on farms and estates.

She is personable and practical and takes a commercial approach to matters. She strives to keep well informed about policy matters that affect the rural economy to ensure that her clients' assets and interests in property are maximised.

Polly sits on the National Legal Property and Parliamentary Rights Committee in Belgrave Square and she is currently the Vice Chairman of the South East Wales and Brecon Branch of the CLA. Her role on both committees allows her to keep up to date with emerging issues in the rural sector, as well as feeding valuable practical examples from the sector to the CLA.

She trained at Bircham Dyson Bell and joined Forsters on qualification in 2009.
