Great Solicitors
Excellent solicitors could not recommend them enough for conveyancing, wills etc. Just recently dealt with Peter & Lauren on a property sale and could not fault the service.

We've been really impressed with our solicitors really proactive and professional. Lauren worked on our house sale and ensured it went smoothly and we were kept up to date.


Lauren went absolutely above and beyond to ensure that the purchase our first property completed in time for the stamp duty holiday - so much so that from viewing to completion was a matter of 7 weeks! She kept us informed every step of the way and ensured that any questions we had were dealt with promptly. What an amazing first purchase experience. We would definitely go through Lauren for any future properties as well as recommend her to any friends and family. Thanks again Lauren!
