Care to recommend, my good sir?
Our last purchase was £700 region on a property value of £300k and this was a recommended independent solicitors on our cities main street.
I've PM'd you, and I'm happy to PM anyone else who is interested.
I WOULD NOT RECOMMEND THEM!
But what really bothered me about them was, once they had my contact details, they really hounded me. Multiple phone calls per day and when I did answer them (I couldn't answer all as I was working) they would try to start getting me set up and committed to them right away. It felt really sneaky. I had consented to the estate agent having a couple of quotes generated, but this was a bit too much for me. Maybe other people prefer this, I dunno. I don't.
We are about to complete and have been happy with the local firm we used. It's been really nice to be able to just drop off paperwork on my lunch break.
