Residential Property/Conveyancing


We were extremely pleased with how the sale of mums house went so smoothly, even though probate was part of it all, every time We dealt with Michelle and her assistants they were professional, friendly and very helpful, nothing was too much trouble and questions we had were answered promptly. I would recommend their first class service.

Look elsewhere for conveyancing support


I'm fairly confident that you would not wish to publish my review. However, having used Gardner Leader previously and having been happy with the service on those occasions, I felt that I owed you an honest review of my experience on this occasion.
