“Sarah Jennings has worked with us to secure an extension on our lease and we are pleased that the process has now been completed. Throughout the lease extension, Sarah has been incredibly attentive and prompt in her replies. It’s felt as though she really cared about getting the best outcome for us (and as quickly as possible given our notoriously slow landlord). Sarah was also very good at communicating the legal process and implications to me, such that I felt as though I knew what was going on and what to expect next. I have no hesitation in recommending Sarah (and by extension Comptons Solicitors LLP) and in fact have already recommended for my brother-in-law to pursue a similar lease extension with Comptons Solicitors. Please pass on my sincere thanks to Sarah for all her help and hard work for us. It is much appreciated.”

Introducing...

Sarah Jennings

Sarah joined Comptons Solicitors LLP in 2011.

Sarah graduated with a first class honors degree in law at the National University of Ireland Galway before completing the Legal Practice Course at The College of Law in Bloomsbury.

Sarah completed her training contract in London at a City-based law firm and qualified as a solicitor before joining Comptons in 2011 to work exclusively within in the Enfranchisement Department given her interest in this particular area of law. 

Sarah was made an Associate Partner on 1 May 2019 and is one of the Practice’s Mental Health First Aiders.

Sarah acts on a variety of freehold enfranchisements, statutory and voluntary lease extensions (both for individuals and large groups), right to manage, right of first refusal under the Landlord and Tenant Act 1987 and missing/absent landlords involving properties in prime central London and the home counties. 

Not only does Sarah act on the transactional side of her work but she also undertakes the litigation. Sarah frequently advocates in the County Court and in the First Tier Property Tribunal. A highlighted case was when Sarah successfully argued and obtained an unreasonable costs order against a landlord despite such a remedy being very rarely awarded. 

Sarah is often complimented by clients on her comprehensive knowledge of the law combined with a friendly and efficient service. Sarah prides herself on carrying out a problem-free service in a complicated area of law.

Sarah is supervised by James Compton.
