The service they provided for us was top-notched! We are very happy we went with Askews Legal! I heard some of my friends had problem with their solicitors so I was preparing myself for the headache of dealing with them but they delivered a fantastic service! Took actions very promptly and dealt with matters very quickly, they communicate to us regularly as well to update us on the progress of our purchase. Me and my wife recommends Askews, especial thanks to Linda Ly and Ayesha Butts who provided us with excellent service.

Excellent service from Hugh at Askews. He made the whole process seem smooth and simple even though we were selling from the other side of the world. Communication with Hugh was fantastic despite the time difference. Professional yet friendly. Very happy.

Sunitum, Nina and the team were excellent. Great communication from them via email, phone and very well set up website. Completed in a fairly short amount of time. I was not notified on an extra fee added on the final bill which was not great. Dispite of that I would highly recommend.

After a very exhausting, vigorous, stalled purchase process due to all the delays from the vendor site, I would highly recommend the services of Askews Legal. Nina and Sunitum were always really responsive, understanding, kind and never hesitated to explain or respond any queries faced. They understood the strict timelines and would communicate this with the seller in a professional yet resultative manner. Really pleased with their services and would certainly go with them again.

Askews Legal were recommended to us by the Estate Agents and we have no regrets at accepting their advice. Nina and Sunitum of Askews acted on our behalf, dealing with some unusual aspects of the sale without delay, and completing the entire sale process in a very acceptable time scale. We would have no hesitation in recommending this Company and team wholeheartedly.
