Pardeep from Askews has been our conveyancer for the sale of two neighbouring properties. One has now completed and the other is SSTC. He has organised new boundaries for the properties gardens with Land Registry. Throughout the whole process Pardeep has been approachable, happy to talk on the phone and explain the processes in simple easy to understand language. He has replied to emails promptly and clearly and kept us upto date with progress. Pardeep has been very proactive and efficient in dealing with other conveyncers and ensured that the sale went through smoothly. We highly recommend Pardeep and his team and feel very grateful that he is the conveyancer for our second property.

Karen Reardan dealt with matters for me promptly and professionally in very difficult circumstances. I can not praise highly enough her knowledge and composure.

I engaged the services of Miss Reardan, Askews Legal LLP, to help me reach a divorce related financial agreement acceptable to the court. This included the completion of a financial order and gaining approval of that order by the court. I dealt with the court directly on other aspects of the divorce. Miss Reardan was happy to work with me in this way.All my dealings with Miss Reardan were during the pandemic which meant we never met face to face, mostly communicating by email, letters and the very occasional telephone conversation after an initial video call. This worked very well. I found the advice given by Karen to be clear and very helpful. Questions were generally answered promptly, the very few exceptions occurring when she was supporting other clients in court which is totally understandable and acceptable. The pension on divorce expert engaged by Miss Reardan to calculate an appropriate pension split was equally efficient, cooperative and clear in their communication and final report.Miss Reardan and other Askews staff have always been very polite, straight forward and supportive towards me. Payment was requested and paid monthly, with an updated estimate every month showing what the likely overall spend would be. I found this worked well with no shock at the end.I employed Askews Legal LLP services after seeing an advert saying they specialised in the financial aspects relating to divorce. Overall, I am very pleased with their services and would recommend them to others in similar circumstances to mine.
