Andrew supported our family with the one sale and one transfer of two properties following our father’s demise. He also assisted with the purchase of a further property around the same time. This all took place during the incredibly hectic time for property solicitors of the stamp duty holiday. We found Andrew to be an extremely personable, skilled, efficient and responsive solicitor. He certainly limited our family stress during a difficult time. I would therefore highly recommend Andrew as a Property Solicitor.

I was extremely impressed with the way in which Andrew dealt with our conveyancing. He was always either available to receive my calls or returned them promptly. He always answered my emails promptly and succinctly. I felt that he totally understood the way in which we wanted to deal with each situation that arose and acted accordingly.

Selling a house during an already very stressful time in your life is not easy, but Helen ensured the process ran smoothly and as quickly as possible.  Thank you to Helen, Andrew and the team for all your work on this.

Helen Hatcher was very efficient, and very knowledgeable, and kept us regularly informed of progress with the house sale, offering advice and guidance at each stage of the process. In addition, when an unexpected problem occurred, Andrew Pluck quickly got to the heart of the matter and offered astute advice on the best way to resolve it.

With conveyancing the team were super efficient and very approachable – the financial statement team (Family Department) were very understanding and gave me the time I needed and excellent advice.

We were really impressed with the friendliness and efficiency of all who dealt with us.  Thank you.

“We received excellent service at very short notice. Everything was dealt with very professionally when Andrew came to our home. Would highly recommend the company.”

“Helen and Andrew were fantastic – Thank you.”

“We are very happy with the service we received. Communication was good, advised of time scale and everything was explained fully.”

Fantastic service as usual.

I have used Hart Reade’s services three times over the past 3 and a half years and have nothing but praise for the professional manner each matter was handled, from the preparation of my Will, divorce and subsequent purchase of my property, I have no hesitation in recommending Hart Reade’s services.

Everything was dealt with promptly and professionally. Very happy with the service of Andrew and his team.

Andrew successfully challenged the lenders initial decision to decline our application as insurers are usually intransigent once a decision is made, we were very pleased with the outcome which avoided a delay in finding another lender.

Extremely happy with the prompt, efficient service from initial telephone call to reception/secretary and quickly all wrapped up and finished by Mr Andrew Pluck, thank you.

I certainly would recommend you to any of my friends or associates. Thank you for all your help.

Very friendly, always willing to help and advise

As usual Hart Reade provided excellent value for money. Must be the 4th or 5th conveyance with them. Nice to know as I’m abroad, that any nagging problem is dealt with
