After completing her Law Degree and Legal Practice Course at Leeds Metropolitan University, Melanie completed her training contract at Cadmans Solicitors in Cleckheaton.
Melanie qualified as a solicitor in 2003 and accepted a position with the conveyancing team at Clarksons Solicitors in Halifax, where she later became a partner. She joined Wilkinson Woodward in 2014 and was appointed as a director in April 2019.
With over 15 years’ experience of helping people to buy and sell their homes, Melanie has extensive knowledge of all areas of conveyancing, including property sales, purchases, re-mortgages and transfers of equity.
Born and bred in Calderdale, Melanie knows the local property market like the back of her hand and, over the years, she has developed a well-deserved reputation for smoothing the way through many challenging and complex property transactions, including the sale of unregistered farmland and farm properties throughout Calderdale.
Unsurprisingly, most of Melanie’s work comes via personal recommendations from estate agents and mortgage advisors, as well as from repeat clients.
Melanie lives in Skircoat Green with her husband Mathew and their two children. In their spare time the couple loves travelling and exploring new places with their growing family.
Melanie Leadbitter provides excellent service - timely, professional and efficient.
Really appreciate Melanie's support and communication, plus the tie-in deal with the house sale.
Can only praise Melanie & Amy, they were fantastic.
Dear Melanie, just wanted to say a big thank you for all your help in buying our lovely new home. You were fantastic!
Morning Melanie, just to let you know, the transaction was completed over the weekend. We are very grateful for all the work you have put in on our behalf - and astonished at how generous you have been with your time.
Dear Melanie and Amy, thank you so much for providing such an excellent service with the sale of the property. I was prepared for an annoying, long drawn out headache but you made it anything but. Hope you enjoy the chocs!
Dear Melanie, just a note to thank you very much for your exceptional professional service and morale support in purchasing the barn. We really appreciate it and will continue to spread the word!
Mel was very efficient in providing great service to complete our mortgage process in a quick easy & helpful way. She was also available at all times for any queries that we had.
Matters are always dealt with efficiently and in a friendly manner. Very satisfied.
Melanie and Amy have both been very supportive and helpful with very quick and timely responses. This was especially appreciated due to to a tight deadline on moving before the start of the new school year.
Melanie was great. It really feels like she cares about and looks after our interests, rather than just getting the sale through.
We noted that Melanie often worked late and responded to our enquiries 'out of hours' which showed how dedicated and courteous she was in ensuring our case was always moving forward.
Working in the housing market for a very long time, I have dealt with many solicitors. I feel on this rare occasion I need to do a review. Our client instructed a solicitor called Melanie Leadbitter who works for Wilkinson Woodward. This lady was amazing, she knew always what was going on, fast and efficient. She so impressed me from the normal, and made the conveyancing process so much easier for her client and us who were the selling agents.
