Amazing service! Efficient, fast, great communication. I couldn’t recommend this company enough. Thank you so much!

Helen Rogers

Having completed the conveyancing work on the sale of our old house and the purchase of our new one this year I cant recommend Philip Thompson and his team at Butcher and Barlow highly enough. At every stage of both processes they have been extremely helpful and supportive throughout.

We used Butcher & Barlow for the sale of our house and purchase of our new property. The communication was great and everything went smoothly with the process. Would definitely recommend.
