I have been absolutely delighted with the service and attention to detail provided by Sarah and her assistant Thomas. To say this has not been an easy process is an understatement but Sarah has remained on the ball throughout and has worked tirelessly chasing other parties to secure a satisfactory resolution. Both Sarah and Thomas have communicated regularly keeping me informed at all stages of the process even following things up outside of normal office hours. I would not hesitate to use their service again and would recommend them to anyone.

“People in the UK are brought up dreaming of owning their own home, so to be backed into a corner where this dream can suddenly be turned into a financial nightmare, from which there appears to be no obvious escape, is a kick in the teeth for many aspiring homeowners.”
