I wanted to say how good an experience it was working with you and WBW. The prompt replies and smooth processing was much appreciated and not always forthcoming in my experience. Thanks again.
I instructed Anthony Fripp at WBW Solicitors to act on my behalf for my first house purchase. Anthony and his assistant Lucy Davis were super efficient, easily contactable at all times and remained highly professional throughout. I was kept updated weekly and the purchase completed within 6 weeks even during these uncertain times.
I would recommend Anthony and Lucy to anyone and I will continue to use WBW in the future.
Thank you for all of your hard work, what would people like me do without people like you.
