Don’t take our word for it…
The stress of moving house has been much reduced knowing that the conveyancing has been in a safe pair of hands. I will, of course, be happy to use Moore Barlow’s services in the future and I believe the same can be said of my family, who have been following the house sale / purchase closely.
Matthew S, Client
We’re always happy to recommend Moore Barlow to our clients as we know they’ll be looked after. Clare Andrews and her team there are brilliant, very straightforward to deal with and great at communication. They make the whole process easy, are very experienced at overcoming potential problems before they arise, and make us much more confident that a sale will go through without a hitch.
Andrew Waterfall, Waterfalls Sales & Lettings
As you can imagine it’s all quite overwhelming as a first time buyer and your patience and constant communication really put me at ease and made the process so smooth even when I feared I would not make the deadline. Everyone involved from your team was professional, efficient and kept me reassured. I am so glad to have followed the advice from my sister who had a similar pleasant experience with Moore Barlow when she was going through the same.
Kudzayi Chirengendure, Client
A short note of appreciation for a task well done; competently, on time and with minimum of fuss. All essential if the complexities of a house sale are to be successful. Having bought and sold a few properties down the years, never has one gone as smoothly as this and your part in it a significant cog.
