Fantastic Service


All i want to say is thank you Katie Richardson for your hard work and fantastic service for the sale of my house. Would recommend this company and would definitely use them again in the near future.

I was recommended Butterworths by a friend, but was disappointed when we clearly did not receive the same level of service.
It was almost impossible to speak to anyone on the team. At times, after no response via email and no answer on the phone, I had to ask the receptionist to speak to them to get any response.
This was the case even when trying to get payment details from them (not sent with the payment request which I found very odd).
They responded to most questions we had about the house buying process with vague answers and jargon which they failed to clarify the meaning of. For example we were concerned about the vendors failing to clear out the property, after not sending any formal documentation of the agreed list of things that would be left they simply said that if this was the case it would be a breach of contract. They would not say what this meant in practical terms.
They failed to return documents back to us. After asking if there were any other documents we needed to send to them regarding a gifted deposit, they said no, but then just a few days before completion they requested more documents which caused unnecessary stress.

We were working to a tight timeframe which they didn't seem to respect. We spent quite a lot of time chasing them for updates, making them aware of emails and documents that had been sent.

First time house purchase


We used Butterworths because we wanted somewhere local and with a good reputation. As first time buyers we were nervous about who to use and how much it would cost. Our solicitor Katie Richardson, was professional, kind extremely knowledgable and put us at ease for the whole experience, from the first enquiry, to completion. She kept in contact with me directly by phone and email (which ever I preferred) and reassured me that no questions were ridiculous ( I had many, many queries) and that she was there to help with everything we needed. After hearing so many stories of other solicitors not having time for you or just treating you like a number, I was really impressed with how professional and comfortable it was to deal with Katie and how easy the entire process was-someone said buying a house was stressful and it didn’t feel that way with her! Would highly recommend and definitely use again should I need to.

First time buyers - very helpful.


Whilst purchasing our first property we appointed Butterworth's as our conveyancer. They were quick in providing their original quote and were very helpful throughout our purchase. Being first time buyers I had a lot of questions and they were able to answer them all.

Although we mainly dealt with Grace, Adele was also very helpful when covering during periods of annual leave etc.
