Customer Testimonials

Our buying and selling experience was very bumpy, however delays were caused by the other parties and Garratts were quick and efficient where possible which help speed the process along.
I was impressed by Garratts efficiency and all though the process was very stressful I could see that they were doing everything that they could to help the purchase and sale of our homes complete.
At the end before exchange Lianne hall our conveyancer was batting away all obstacles the other parties threw at us to ensure we eventually moved on the final completion date that we put forward, she was very efficient in calculating the final bills and transferring the monies due back to us at the end of the sale.
Our experience wasn't great but Garratts were trying everything to help us and eventually it paid off, if we had had a less efficient conveyancer we may not have even been able to complete the purchase and sale.


I recently purchased a new house with Lianne, from offer to completion was 2 1/2 weeks!!! I could not be more impressed with how my case was handled and how well I was kept up to date, being able to communicate via email really helped me, brilliant, professional service, would definitely use them again in the future and recommend to others


I recently bought a new house. Mary Dempsey delt with all my legal paperwork. I was very happy with the service. She is very polite and professional. All the girls in the office are amazing and wet helpful. Would recommend Mary to anybody
