I am a Partner and Head of our Residential Conveyancing Department, based in St Albans. I pride myself on my proactive and client focused approach to my work which ensures an efficient and effective service for both clients and introducers alike.

With more than 25 years’ experience in residential property, I am able to assist clients in relation to all aspects of residential property from more straightforward residential conveyancing including registered/ unregistered land, freehold/leasehold/shared ownership titles to more complex property investment and/or property development. I am well versed in both New Build conveyancing and development work acting for both buyers and developers depending on the project and happy to assist with transactions involving Help to Buy 1, Help to Buy 2, Help to Buy Armed Forces and Help to Buy ISAs.

Over the years, I have developed an extensive network of clients, estate agents, mortgage brokers, financial advisors, developers and house builders who I continue to work with using my specialist expertise and knowledge in this field.

I spend much of my time in the world of New Build conveyancing and development work acting for both buyers and developers.


When not at work I enjoy running, Pilates, dancing, baking and travelling especially in Africa. I hope one day to make the Cairo to Cape overland trip.

What our clients say

What a great solicitors, we used for sale of old house and purchase of new build house. Caroline and her professional team dealt with all matters swiftly and accurately. Always available on phone to talk to someone and replied to emails promptly. We've never had such good solicitor, fees were reasonable too . Use them now you wont be disappointed!!!!! We will use again without thought.

We used Taylor Walton to purchase our new home. Caroline Hume handled our purchase with great efficiency and professionalism. All queries were answered quickly and in was a pleasure to deal with Caroline and her colleagues, especially as we were in "Covid lockdown" and so many companies were using this as as an excuse for bad service. It was a pleasure to deal with Taylor Walton LLP,
and Caroline during quite a stressful time and would certainly use them again and recommend them.

Caroline Hume has been incredibly helpful and professional. She acted as my solicitor when I purchased my house and I have found her to be very responsive throughout the transaction. Furthermore, she has been helpful and been quick to respond with information I require to re-mortgage, 2 years after I purchased the property. 5* Trustpilot
