Don’t take our word for it…
Working with the solicitors and team at Moore Barlow who did the conveyancing for our recent house sale could not have been easier or more efficient. Everything went smoothly, and it was good to be able to rely on their sound expertise and advice. They were very supportive and helpful over important points of detail. I would certainly recommend them to anyone looking for a solicitor to do the conveyancing for them.
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.

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.
