Mortgage - great service


Henna handled my case.
We had some problem with the banks solicitors as the very rigid in applying their rules and their time frames.
Henna ensured that we got the mortgage through on time for the completion date.
Great work.
I would reuse again.

The thing that could have been improved was the initial contact, which seemed like there was a delay as it was hard getting a hold of Henna to have a chat to explain things, but this was when Henna and us were starting the process of, and I believe Henna was getting details from the banks solicitors and had other work on too. If it had explained that what information was being gathered and how long each stage of the process would take at start, that would be a good for someone to get a good idea of what to expect. After this the communication was excellent.

Outstanding service from start to finish!


As 1st time buyers, both me and my husband had no idea what to expect. Ayaaz was our solicitor and made the entire process as straight forward as it could be. He kept us informed via email and phone, responded to us very quickly and was highly efficient. We are extremely happy with the service we have received and are so glad we chose Blakewaters.

I would recommend Blakewaters to anyone who is purchasing a house especially first time buyers. I must add that Ayaaz prepared reports very quickly and to a amazing standard where there was little queries from our mortgage provider. If I was to ever buy another home I would use Blakewaters and Ayaaz again. He was the most professional person and is clearly an asset to Blakewaters Solicitors. Thank you for all of your hard work, we wish you success in your future career.

Attentive and responsive service during a difficult process. Henna is a star.


Having just completed possibly the world's longest remortgage process (closing on 6 months), involving a bank who didn't understand what kind building they were providing finance for and a freeholder who didn't understand freehold law(!) , Henna Khan has been brilliant during a unique and challenging process.

Ayaaz from Blakewater Solicitors was truly exceptional! His guidance and attention to detail as well as his quick actions helped me significantly when I purchased my property. I will always use his services from now on for all my property purchases.

Purchase of Property


My property purchase was dealt with by Ayaaz Darr and I was extremely happy with the service I received. I was given regular updates via email and phone calls and kept in contact throughout. Ayaaz kept me informed and explained every stage of the purchase to help me and my wife understand. Will definitely recommend the firm and Ayaaz to others.

Property Purchase


I just completed on a property purchase with Blakewater after a very lengthy and difficult process. However Henna Khan was very helpful, friendly and professional throughout the process and I will forever be thankful for how well she handled the process. Going forward I will not hesitate to recommend Blakewater Solicitors and Henna Khan if required.

Great Service


I recently dealt with Ruqia at Blakewater to complete the purchase of my first property. Being my first purchase I had many questions and a lot of correspondence back and forth. Ruqia responded promptly at all times and kept me up to date with what was happening. She was able to keep the process simple and explained everything in detail to me at all times.

Purchase & Re-Finance


I've used Blakewater Solicitors for a number of years and whenever I need a legal service my go to contact has always been Ume Ruqia Anwar. Very happy with the service, and a big thank-you to Ruqia for her professionalism, eye for detail and great communication. I would happily use Blakewater again without any hesitation, highly recommended

Made my house buying process smooth.


Was looked after by Ayaaz Darr, and was pleasantly surprised. I have bought a number of properties in the past, and have had plenty of hidden costs and lengthy delays. Ayaaz made the process so easy and efficient from day one, and explained everything right from the off. Will definitely be the first point of contact for me and my family, from here on in.

Great Service - Blakewater Solicitors.


I recently used Blakewater Solicitors to support a property purchase, with some complexities given me being based overseas. Henna managed the case and was a fantastic support - clear, responsive communication and clearly knowledgeable on all aspects of the process.

I would highly recommend Blakewater Solicitors and Henna to others requiring conveyancing services.
