Transactions Lily has acted on include:
- Sale and purchase of multiple rural second homes (including a number in North Norfolk) in excess of £750K
- Purchase of several London-based properties (both freehold and leasehold)
- Sale & purchase of multiple £1million+ properties
- Multiple Golden Triangle transactions
- Deed of easements relating to various types of property
Effective, efficient, personable, and well-managed communications played a key part in concluding my business on the target date. Couldn't ask for more in professional and legal services really. I engaged Leathes Prior on the basis of a recommendation and would be happy to re-state that recommendation.
One of the best recommendations I have ever received. This wasn’t our first home purchase but was our first time with Leathes Prior and we really noticed the difference in level of service. Anna Jordan and Lily Beel were exceptional, from the most detailed but reader-friendly reports to being responsive to our many queries. People talk of moving house being one of the most stressful life events, and we are so pleased that we felt completely able to enjoy all of the positives, knowing we were in really safe hands. A huge thanks to Anna and Lily.
What can I say, Lily Beel at Leathes Prior was amazing dealing with the sale of my flat. When I purchased the flat in 2019 I used a local competitor who by comparison were absolutely terrible. I found with Lily that I did not have to constantly chase and she kept me updated all the way through the process. Lily’s colleagues Eleanor and Kate were also very helpful and proactive. I would recommend Lily and her team to anyone needing their services.
Lily Beel and the conveyancing team were professional but friendly. Extremely efficient and proactive. Kept us informed on progress. Lily was recommended to us and I would not hesitate to pass on this recommendation.
I am writing to say what a superb job Lily Beal did with our case. I genuinely thought the chain we were in was going to prove to be a simple case, but that was far from the outcome. To the point where Lily started to recognise my phone number when I called shows the amount I was contacting her and at each occasion she was polite, informative, helpful and empathetic to the state of getting the chain to a point of exchange. Her communication throughout our case was exemplary. I have used other solicitors in the past and not had a good experience to be honest, but Leathes Prior have been superb and having Lily on our case was the main driver for this. She is a credit to her team and your organisation.
My wife and I have bought over 15 properties in the course of the last 50-odd years, and have dealt with many firms of solicitors, both in those transactions, and in my professional capacity. Our experience of Leathes Prior compares more than favourably with any professional firm with whom we have dealt over all that time. Lily Beel has been thoroughly professional at all times, and never ceased to be supportive and cheerful, despite operating in such a frantically busy period. She was often in touch well after normal working hours, and clearly prioritises getting the job done efficiently whatever the personal effort. I would also add that Lily is very well supported by Kate Newson, who has been a pleasure to deal with. Between them they have ensured an excellent experience for us.
Just wanted to drop you an email to say thank you ever so much for everything you have done in this process, you guys have brilliant at coming back to me and getting things done very quickly, I couldn’t have asked for more. You’re an absolute credit to the business and your team are too. Thank you so much for everything
Of course, when someone instructs a solicitor to undertake their conveyancing needs - it goes without saying that they expect a professional and high-quality service. Well, I'm glad to say that Lily did not disappoint! She responded swiftly to our emails and at times did so 'out of hours' - which did not go unnoticed. We were unable to tie in our purchase with our sale and it's fair to say that this caused me a degree of anxiety at times, but Lily remain calm and consistent throughout which helped ease my concerns. I also have to say that aside from her clear, concise and experienced instruction on the various legalities related to both transactions - she also demonstrated a thoughtful understanding of our particular situation, which I particularly appreciated. I can imagine many of your staff have had to deal with high workloads and balance the complexities of office and home-working, whilst navigating your business practices through this pandemic and I have to say that Lily has been a credit to that endeavour. I would also like to add my thanks to all staff who we had dealings with over the period involved, all of whom we found extremely helpful and considerate. With that said I would not hesitate to recommend Leathes Prior in the future and hope that Lily receives some form of recognition for all her efforts on our behalf.
Lily and Kate are an absolute pleasure to work with, polite, efficient and clearly very “on the ball”. As an ex-estate agent and now investment professional which includes recommending property investing I really set the bar high when I ask someone to provide a service and not once did the ladies disappoint. I have finally found a conveyancing team I would be confident to recommend to my clients and I would not hesitate to use them again. They’re both an absolute credit to Leathes Prior and worth paying the slight (but incredibly reasonable) premium to work with them. Thank you both, we’re now settled and very happy in our new home
I just wanted to thank you for all your patience and help over the months especially in the face of such lack of communication from the other solicitor. It has really made my life much easier, and I am grateful.
I was referred to Lily and from the outset I was impressed by her friendly and professional attitude. Compared with many such transactions I believe our recent move was relatively straightforward but nevertheless it still had its stressful moments as far as I was concerned and Lily's calm demeanour was very reassuring and appreciated. I would have no hesitation in recommending Leathes Prior to others.
This is not the first time I have used Leathes Prior for buying / selling a home. My first experience of LP was a couple of years since where I found myself dealing with a young woman by the name of Miss Beel. I remember, at the time, thinking, I hope she has enough experience of this conveyancing stuff, she seems awfully young. I could not have been more wrong! Lily Beel is very knowledgeable, doesn't miss anything, responsive to questions and seems to work extremely hard as I get emails into the early evenings. I am more than a little impressed at Lily and her team (the Eleanors, Angharad and Kate) for getting stuff done; doesn't faff, doesn't fuss and has been an absolute pleasure to deal with on every occasion I have needed to speak with her, even if I have been a bit dense or slow on the uptake, Lily has always been patient and the very essence of polite. Sadly, (gladly?) this will be my last home sale as I have found my forever home and Lily made it seamless, painless and is a breath of fresh air and joy to deal with. Not your normal stuffed shirt solicitor, a real person to deal with. All round and amazing and excellent experience during a stressful time.
