There aren’t enough words to say how brilliant Maira and Hugh in conveyancing managed my house sale and purchase….. the ones in the middle juggling the upward and downward chain but always being in top of it and keeping it together. The solicitors each end kept needing a shove and they got shoved!’ Maira and Hugh made it happen. Thank you so much Askews.

An efficient and process-driven service, the line of communication and clarity towards current stages of the completion of my property was fantastic.I would like to specifically mention Nina Bircham, who went above and beyond in streamlining the completion of my property from a conveyancing perspective and with timely responses to my enquiries.I could not recommend Nina and Askews Legal LLP enough, and no doubt will be utilising their services further down the line.
