    What our clients say about our
    Solicitors in Prestwich

    Fantastic company. Very helpful and staff are lovely.


    They are a very good firm for getting things done quickly and professionally. Our solicitors went beyond the call of duty to get us what we wanted. 5 stars isn't high enough for them.


    We recently bought our first house and used Butcher & Barlow as we needed a conveyancer. Our conveyancer, Diane, was absolutely phenomenal. She really went above and beyond and we can't praise her enough. The seller's solicitor (different company) were being extremely difficult and hard to contact throughout the whole process. Despite this, Diane's determination and enthusiasm allowed us to finalise and complete the purchase of our first home. A massive thank you again to Diane and the team. We will definitely be contacting you again for future services.

    Steven & Rebecca

    I can't rate this place enough. They have been amazing and so helpful over the years. Claire Jackson is an amazing Solicitor and I would recommend her any day.


    Diane Penlington was superb when we sold our house. She took over half way through and found, not only did she fight hard, she also made herself available for a phone call and answered our worries very promptly. I would highly recommend this lady if you are buying and selling your home as her excellent attitude and skills makes the experience much less stressful. We cant thank her enough for her excellent service.


    Absolutely Brilliant very understanding.

    Mr Jones

    Donna is super helpful, professional and responsive. I would really recommend Butcher and Barlow - a great experience.


    I have worked with Philip Thompson both for the purchase and the sale of my house and I have to say he is very professional, efficient and has your best interests at heart. Highly recommend ++


    Phillip Thompson acted on my behalf, and the process was trouble free - especially considering the negative effects of the Covid-19 on businesses. The house purchase was completed in good time, and I am now in my new property. Butcher & Barlow have acted on my behalf on most of my house moves over the years, and have always provided an excellent service. Would strongly recommend.


    Sadly I did not utilise Butcher & Barlow under particularly favorable circumstances. I've had two very difficult and ultimately unsuccessful conveyancing experiences while with them. I am happy to say however, that while things did not go as planned, Butcher & Barlow conducted themselves professionally, ethically and with patience. The difficult circumstances I found myself in did give them the opportunity to demonstrate that they're honest, patient, stick to their word, and have empathy when it is required. Philip Thompson in particular should be commended for the way he handled interactions with a disagreeable behaviour from a third party, and subsequently in handling my own frustrations in reaction to this. He helped me to understand what my options were and provided support and sympathy in a professional manner. I'll absolutely return to Butcher & Barlow to hopefully have a more successful sale and purchasing experience in the near future.
