Ben - Just a quick note to thank you for all your help on my purchase.
Everything went so smoothly and was very professional, definitely my best experience I've had on purchasing property. I'll be recommending you and your firm!
We had the pleasure of working with Ben Crouch on the recent sale of our house. We moved to the USA, and Ben had to communicate with us remotely, over different time zones. Despite this, the sale proceeded smoothly. Ben was very responsive, knowledgeable and an experienced negotiator. Thanks to Ben, we got the deal done on time and within budget. We would definitely recommend Ben, and his firm to future clients.
Mr & Mrs B
I have used Ben Crouch for a number of years as my conveyancing solicitor as I trust him to always act in my best interests.
However a recent transaction meant that I had to utilise a firm that my partner recommended instead. The difference between that experience and any with Ben and Salehs was beyond recognition. With the other firm, I dealt with juniors and I had to virtually do everything for myself and read through endless amounts of correspondence, questioning everything that came through. With Ben, I receive a verbal and written summary of what various search results mean and get a summarised version of any potential risks and things to consider which we then discuss and agree upon.
For a personal, advice led service, I would recommend Ben Crouch and Salehs to anyone without hesitation.
Having never bought a probate sale from a bank, and one with over 10 offers received over the asking price across two estate agents, it was with some trepidation I asked Ben if he could beat the opposition?
Despite the bank refusing to stop marketing the property until exchange, Ben reassured me - and then proactively managed the bank appointed solicitors and rapidly moved to point of exchange within the least possible time!
Throughout a tense few weeks, Ben kept me fully informed how we would achieve the quickest exchange despite other motivated cash buyers, the difficult vendors and local authority search challenges.
I'm indebted to Ben and Saleh's services again and cannot envisage anyone achieving such positive and stress-free outcomes for me!
