Our service begins and ends personally, with each transaction being completed by a conveyancer personal to you, so you know who you need to talk to from first instruction to completion. We will provide you with regular updates on the progress of your transaction, liaise with the other parties’ solicitors, report to you on the quality of your title and the requirements of your bank - alongside any other issues that arise. We are aware that your house is your home, but it is also an investment. Thus, very importantly we will ensure, from a legal point of view, that you end up buying a property that you will be able to sell.

I really appreciated your help and service during the time I was purchasing my new house and moving. It was a seriously busy period of my life...and you really helped. I would honestly say that your service and pro-activity blew me away, I have never been chased by a solicitor before for information – normally it is the converse!! I will take the time to highlight one of the many things that you did for me that I thought was outstanding. During the move one of your team phoned me for the bank details of my old mortgage so that could be paid off. I was at that stage helping my removals company (which were the opposite to you I may hasten to add – top dollar charges, despicable service) move boxes so I was extremely tied up. I put off looking for the information that your team wanted. A short while later the same team member phoned again and I apologised as I hadn’t got the information to them, they said don’t worry, we have located the information and have paid the mortgage off for you!!! Fantastic service.
I just wanted to quickly convey our satisfaction with David Clarke and his team following our recent purchase of a property in Birchfield Road, Stockport. As expats, confidence was key and David came highly recommended and didn't let us down. We were kept well informed throughout and any queries were answered quickly and satisfactorily. A thoroughly professional job and we would have no hesitation in recommending Leathes Prior to others in the future.
You’ve been a star to work with – an enormous support and help in resolving all the issues and blockages we’ve had along the way. We couldn’t have done it without you.
I just wanted to let you know how grateful we are for all your help and advice during the last few weeks, and for keeping us so well informed, thank you.
Thank you very much for all your hard work and patience throughout the stressful process. I feel very fortunate to have instructed you as my solicitor.
As always excellent, courteous, prompt and professional service.
Just superb – great service, great communication, no gobbledegook.
Thank you very much for all your help. I would particularly like to thank you for your understanding and compassion, and negotiations, regarding my recent, and very badly timed health problems. And I wouldn't hesitate to recommend you to anyone requiring a very good conveyancer; It has been a complete pleasure throughout...no fuss, no dramas, just quiet efficiency. I've been very impressed.
Many thanks for all your help to date, hoping this purchase will be as easy as you made the last!
We had to write to you and thank you for the excellent service you have provided in our recent house purchase. From our first telephone conversation, through the whole process, to the final completion we have been impressed and inspired by your thoroughness, speed and reliability. We will not hesitate in recommending you to our friends and colleagues.
I'd prefer Leathes Prior to act for me as you did such a brilliant job of the house purchase, would love for the good work to continue.
We wish to give our appreciation of the outstanding service you gave to us for these two conveyances and without your professional drive we would not have completed on the date we required. Furthermore you carried it all out with good humour and at times you were like a terrier with a bone, all to get the required results. We would have no hesitation in recommending your services.
We are extremely grateful for all your help, advice and support during both of our abortive house purchases and for your speed and efficiency in completing. After such a stressful few months, it was very reassuring for us to know that we were in such good hands. We would not hesitate to use you again or to recommend you to friends and family.
