Highly recommended - Pardeep at Askews is excellent, easy to do business with, always on it and keen to get the property sale over the line. He has dealt with the legals for me on 5 property sales over the last few months and every one has been spot on. Can’t recommend Pardeep and Askews highly enough.

This is the first time I have used Askews and overall I would say they are very good.I was selling my late mothers property and I found that the communication with the team was straight forwards and clear, with good supporting information packs. When I needed extra clarity/information Maira & Hugh were back to me very quickly and kept me appraised of what was going on. The initial quoting process was straight forwards and again very clear and a lot better than some of the competitors.I would certainly use them again and would recommend
