As part of a recent property purchase, we were encouraged by an estate agent to farm out the legal side of our sale to a legal firm in Peterborough. They were hjghly recommended, and cheap too! What could go wrong? Well to start, we got billed for services we never availed of and it took close to a year after completion to get all our papers! This obviously caused some major headaches with acquiring a remortgage against our new property.
When it came to selling our old flat, we decided to go local - someone we could deal with face to face. As luck would have it, we ended up with Diarmuid of MW solicitors in Wimbledon. The fact he was a charismatic Irishman, like myself (though my charisma is in fact borne from a permanent form of mild drunkenness), was merely a bonus. From day 1, a plan of action was expertly implemented and during a difficult period with unresponsive property management and freehold companies, we were always kept in the loop while Diarmuid, ably assisted by Latifa, chased people down, negotiated and accelerated the sale to the best of their ability. Under the circumstances, we completed as quickly as we could have. In fairness, the outcome was never in doubt! So many thanks to Diarmuid and Latifa - an absolute pleasure to work with, and is recommend anyone looking to ensure a hassle free property purchase or sale to check MW solicitors out pronto!
