Lily studied law at the University of Novi Sad, Serbia and in 1997 started working in Immigration law practices and attending a part time course to obtain The Institute of Legal Executives Higher Diploma in Law from the University of Westminster in London which she completed in 2005.
Her immigration workload involved translation of documents and statements from Serbo-Croatian into English and preparing them for court hearings as well as representing clients at political asylum interviews and Immigration Tribunals.
In 2006 she decided to take a break from the law to help set up and run an award winning specialist dental practice in Kent for a number of years.
In 2013 she attended the University of Westminster in London to undertake a refresher CILEX course in Conveyancing in which she obtained a Merit.
Lily joined Hanne & Co in 2016 where she deals with post completion matters. She supports solicitors within the property department with transactions ranging from freehold to leasehold purchases (both within residential and commercial property environment), lease extensions and refinancing.
She takes care of the clients at the end of their house buying/selling journey. This includes submission of Land Transaction Returns at HMRC, registering their property with HM Land Registry and interacting with the Conveyancing Team and third parties such as solicitors, banks, building societies, Landlords and Management Companies to ensure all documentation is collated ready to close the file for the client.
Lily is trilingual in English, Serbian and Croatian. Away from the office she loves foreign travel and learning about different cultures. Apart from that she enjoys going to the opera, working out in the gym and spending quality time with her three daughters.
