VERY DISAPPOINTED

1

Poor advice regarding an important and urgent probate issue. It may have been that the sum involved was too small to warrant Grant Saw’s attention, but nevertheless they should have said. Emails ignored and voicemail messages unanswered. The solicitor was clearly very inexperienced. Very disappointed. Will not use Grant Saw again and will certainly not be recommending them .

Perseverance and Conciseness

4

The process of the work undertaken was very lengthy and though no fault for this can be attached to Maria she stuck with the client. Maria also took time out out to come to an evening meeting and provided a very helpful and concise explanation of the document, a lease, under discussion.

Highly recommended!

5

I recently purchase my first home in London. Being new to the UK, I wasn't familiar at all with the complicated process of buying property in London. After reading numerous reviews and having used Grant Saw's notary public previously, I decided to use Grant Saw Solicitors for conveyancing. Emily Pearce was my solicitor throughout this process. I was so impressed by her excellence in every aspect of the sale. She was extremely helpful, explained everything clearly, was efficient and a consummate professional. I felt like someone had my back throughout the whole process. Communication was fast and straightforward. At no point was the sale held up and Emily made sure that all bases were covered. I greatly appreciated the thoroughness! Emily was available by phone or email and all communications were smooth. I wouldn't hesitate to use Emily again in the future and I would highly recommend Emily and Grant Saw to anyone looking for a solicitor.

I found all at Grant Saw that I dealt with very professional. Would recommend the Company to my friends and family. Would like to say a BIG THANK YOU to Mr Meakin for his hard work on not such a straight forward sale of my sister-in-law's property. Thank you.

Great quality service. Once more!

We already experienced successful purchasing processes with Grant Saw. This was our first one with Emily. It was great to see that also in this circumstance, the quality of the service provided was excellent: high responsiveness, concise communication, clarity in the explanations, willingness to take position and provide clear directions. It has been an absolute pleasure dealing with Emily. We will definitely ask for her valuable service again in future occasions! Thank you Emily for all your support and availability!
