    Meet the HW Conveyancing Team


    Andrew is Chairman of IPSA, the national trade body for independent search companies.

    He is passionate about HW having spent all of his working life in the searches industry. He has managed a Land Charges Section for a major City Council, worked in management for a large national search company and started HantsWight (now HW) from a self-employed platform in 2005. Andrew loves to meet and collaborate with clients looking to continuously adapt and improve the service that we provide. He is passionate about sharing his knowledge and expertise and his training courses and seminars are always very popular.

    Outside work, Andrew loves most sports, especially football and cricket, and is proud to have taken part in several Transplant Games.

    Louise & Max

    Louise started at HW in 2013 as an apprentice, working her way through both admin and search roles before becoming the admin manager in 2016. She works hard to ensure clients requests are actioned promptly and professionally, all whilst maintaining that personal touch with each and every one of our clients. Outside of the office, Louise enjoys spending time with her daughter and puppy – one of our office dogs, Max. She also enjoys running, after taking it up at the beginning of 2022 and often finds herself signing up to various different challenges throughout the year.

    Max joined the HW team as the first office dog in March 2023 as a small, fluffy bundle of energy at just 9 weeks old. He enjoys lots of attention and play and especially enjoys as many treats as he can get out of everyone – especially if it’s a fish based one. He loves being outside as he finds that’s where he can find even more attention and he certainly doesn’t lack any! He also loves sniffing out absolutely everything and trying to chase as many squirrels and birds as he can set his eyes on. He’s gone through some huge growth spurts but remains the boisterous boy we’ve all come to know and love.


    Alicia joined HWC Searches as the Local Land Charges Searches Manager at the beginning of November 2021.

    Alicia started her Local Land Charges career in 1985 working as a search assistant within a Local Authority.  Aside from breaks to start a family and raise her two children, she went on to acquire over 20 years’ experience in Local Land Charges, 16 years of them as a manager.  As paper-based systems were computerised, she also became heavily involved and developed a keen interest in the Local Authority’s Geographical Information Systems (GIS) which led her to assist with the set up and then have data ownership of the Local Land Charges data tables, creating the public access Local Land Charges System.

    Alicia stepped down from her Local Authority role in 2016, she took a year out living and working in Spain prior to moving back to the U.K and taking up a demanding role in the NHS as a Medical Secretary.  She then took on a role as a Conveyancing Secretary.  However, she was keen to resume her Local Land Charges career but not in a Local Authority setting so when the opportunity came up within HWC Searches, she was delighted and the rest is history!

    In her spare time, Alicia loves to sing in her local community choir.  She likes to travel, enjoys walking and cycling.  She also enjoys spending time with her family and when time allows, watercolour painting and sketching.


    Hayden began his career in property searches at HW Conveyancing Searches as an Apprentice Search Agent and Administrative Assistant in March 2021. Upon completion of his apprenticeship in May 2022, he was very grateful to have received a permanent role with his new job title as a Local Land Charges Search Agent. Hayden is determined and eager to provide the most accurate and best possible service for our clients.

    In his spare time Hayden particularly enjoys travelling, attending music gigs, and football as he is a huge Chelsea fan!


    Charlotte started her career at HW Conveyancing Searches as an Apprentice in March 2021. She works in the Searches team and often assists in Admin.

    She grew up in the Cotswolds, and after achieving a history degree at Plymouth University, moved to Portsmouth in January 2020. In her free time she likes to swim, go on long walks in the countryside, and play online games with friends.

    You will very rarely find her without a cup of tea!
