Mr & Mrs C. Commercial Property Client

Thank you very much to the team, who supported me through a tricky repossession house purchase. The turn around time was incredible, at one point the documents needed to be redone and submitted for completion within 12 hours due to a price change…amazingly this was done and I am now a very happy buy-to-let landlord! Highly recommended!
