Excellent, as always


John Cool handled a very difficult purchase for me, one that ultimately fell through, but he kept me sane and I ended up with a much better property.

His excellent attention to detail and friendly personality make even the most difficult of transactions much easier to bear.

Grace was incredible. She was very reassuring when I was stressed to the maximum. She was very thorough and explained everything in detail to help us as we hadn’t been through a house sale in 19 years and things had changed so much. We are looking for our next home now and I only hope that’s Grace will be able to deal with our purchase.

Great service at the top of the range.


Adele dealt with our move, we had some issues with our buyer and their solicitors which Adele dealt with smoothly and efficiently. All staff at Butterworths were professional and very efficient.

Butterworths deliver a high quality service. Well recommended.

Great service for first time buyers


We were delighted with the service we received from Butterworths. After some big mixups and errors in communication with the first solicitors we appointed, we were relieved to find that Butterworths were very quick, efficient and extremely professional in their communication and service. Adele and Grace made sure that we were updated every step of the way, and were able to answer any questions we had (and as first time buyers, we had plenty).

We would highly recommend Butterworths to anyone looking for a conveyancing solicitor.

Emma Aitchison and her team dealt with our recent conveyance, which was straightforward, but we have used her for many years. Emma is always polite, professional, doesn't panic and knowledgeable. She and her team kept us to date with every step of the conveyance along the way, and answered our queries quickly. We would recommend them highly.
