Excellent service

We have used the services of Blanchards and Bailey during our last two house purchases, and wouldn’t hesitate to use them again.
If we had any questions or issues pop up, as they always do during this process, we were always able get hold of someone (no waiting for days for a response like some other companies) and get answers / get things resolved swiftly.
I honestly have nothing but praise for the team at Blanchards, and should we ever move again, we will most definitely be using them once more.

House Purchase

Alan Horne and Caroline Doman acted for us with my house purchase. The Seller was rather difficult and throughout the transaction, both acted in a timely and professional manner. I was responded too with good advice and both returned my calls the same day if they weren't immediately available to speak with me. Their support staff were also very friendly and helpful. I will definitely be recommending their services.

Prolonged house sale

My house sale was unnecessarily prolonged partly due to my purchasers solicitor and difficulties with Land Registry which could have been dealt with in a much simpler way, had my purchasers had the appropriate advice. The situation was not helped by the bottleneck created by the SD holiday.
My solicitor provided calm reassuring advice throughout, my queries were dealt with promptly and efficiently and helped calm my frayed nerves in a very stressful time. I appreciated the support given not only by the solicitor but also the whole team who were always at hand to answer my queries.
I have used Blanchard Bailey for many years and will continue to do so and I have no hesitation in recommending them

Sale and purchasing of our properties

We initially had an incredibly stressful and frustrating time with the first conveyancer assigned to us, who then went on maternity leave, with her locum cover then leaving after only 10 days, but this was then rescued from disaster by Caroline and Dee. After they took over our very complicated case, they have been nothing short of exceptional. Despite their busyness, they responded quickly and efficiently both to my emails and phone calls, but also added a personal, kind touch to the process which was greatly appreciated. This made me feel less like yet another client, but more an individual going through a difficult and stressful process. I would highly recommend Caroline and Dee to assist in any conveyance process, and after being with this firm for 10 years, would be more than happy to continue with them.

Divorce

I honestly cannot thank Laura Martin enough.
My divorce wasn’t what I imagined would ever happen. Laura was informative, honest, considerate of my feelings, respectful and professional at all times.
Questions either my email or telephone were always answered in a timely and respectful manner and due to this it’s all been finalised efficiently.
I was so impressed with the service I have used the same firm to write my Will.
Thank you again.

Excellent service

Blanchards have been consistant in the quality of their service, putting up with sorting out the errors of previous Solicitors. The work has been done to a high quality and below the cost we were expecting.

I highly recommend Carla Phillips, who helped us with land and property matters. She is friendly, and efficient, gets straight back to you with straight-forward replies, and has a flexible approach when things don't go to plan (as they often don't!).

Excellent conveyancing service

Laura Bowles handled our conveyancing earlier this year. We started the process last November and as it was a new build we were under pressure to exchange in 28 days. Laura and Mandy Thompson were incredible as they got it through incredibly quickly. They kept us updated throughout. After exchange they constantly chased the builders for us with post exchange issues. I cannot recommend them enough and also Angie Gillingham who kept us updated on the registration. Thank you so much for all your efforts! Thank goodness they chased otherwise we would have had to wait until after lockdown for a moving date!

Outstanding

I have used Blanchards Bailey for many years as both family and business lawyer. I have found them uniquely forthright, professional and diligent - whether in connection to property conveyancing, copyright legal advice and everything in-between. They are also excellent on advising when legal advice - and legal fees - is not necessary, so saving the client money! A very professional, trustworthy and personable service. Highly reccomended.
