“Karen Middleton was exceptionally efficient from start to finish. I purchased a new build and we exchanged contracts easily within the builder’s deadline. The whole process was stress free and on completion day I picked up the keys before 11am. Good job!”

“A big thanks and appreciation for all the hard work and expertise from Karen Middleton in handling our conveyancing. The task was complex, involving overage deeds (no, me neither) and difficulties with family members’ demands. Karen sailed through it all efficiently and kept us informed along the way, leaving us confident that we were glad to have her acting for us over a long drawn out period resulting in a satisfactory outcome.”

“I purchased a plot of land for a self-build property in the North-East. Finding a firm for conveyancing was tricky. Many firms said they could, but I soon learned they didn’t have the competency. SE-Solicitors came to the rescue, and were knowledgeable about such transactions. At every step of the way, Karen provided precise instructions and communication was open. She followed up in a timely manner to keep things moving. SE-Solicitors were patient as the transaction took longer than expected due to the purchase being tied to approved planning permission. Despite the complexity, I couldn’t have asked for a more painless process. For me, SE-Solicitors was a safe pair of hands.”
