About John Appleby

Solicitor - Real Estate Development & Residential Property

John has over 10 years’ experience dealing with all aspects of residential and a range of commercial property work as well as providing corporate support.  He continues to build strong links with clients, developers and other professionals in and around the South Manchester area.

The property market is constantly changing and with it the requirements of the parties involved any given transaction. John works hard to meet those requirements with a practical approach focusing on keeping the client informed and included in the process. Good communication is key to this approach.

The fast pace of property work drew John towards it early in his career. He has worked for both a national conveyancing practice, Countrywide Property Lawyers, and  Chafes, a Cheshire based firm.

Outside work, John enjoys watching the latest blockbuster or obscure European film at a local cinema, walking, distance running and occasionally dusting off his road bike for a spin. He is married and lives in Chorlton.

Specialisms/Area of Expertise

  • Residential and Commercial Property

  • Landlord and tenant leases

  • When it came to selling my property, and having moved away from Manchester, I didn’t have a lawyer – I do now. John Appleby was highly recommended to me by a family member and I’m pleased that he was. Living remotely, it was important to me and my family that the details of the sale were handled diligently, efficiently and without the need for too much input from myself. We got that from John – we were kept appraised when necessary and always felt comfortable that the layer of detail that we didn’t have the time to deal with was being handled professionally. I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending Salehs and John’s services to others.

    Mr SC
  • John - Thank you very much indeed for all your assistance with the completion. I really appreciate you putting up with all my questions throughout and explaining everything so thoroughly. A first purchase is a steep learning curve especially when your area of law couldn't be further away from my area!

    Ms DM
  • A massive 'Thank you' to John Appleby for his professionalism, understanding, valued expertise and all round approach during my house purchase. A trust was established immediately and that's something you can't buy!
    All the boxes were ticked and all the stresses attached to the house purchase were taken away. Quick, efficient, reliable and worth every penny.
