If you want conveyancing where you have any form of decent dialogue then do not use Lowick McKay. Bernadette appeared unable to return calls and will barely get out of first gear for the whole process. Will never use this outfit again.

We are first time buyer but their service is really careless. We chose them because the quote is cheaper than others, but now we learnt our lesson. Won't use it again.

Lowick McKay was very professional in their work and were able to complete the purchase of our property on moving day despite numerous delays caused by people earlier in the chain. Due to Bernadette's ability to turn things around quickly we managed to move into our house before the banks closed. I would recommend Lowick McKay to anyone.

I instructed Joanne and the team in re to purchasing a new build property. Our mortgage provided wanted us to use a practise with 3 partners. Which McKays's didn't. I had to use someone else. I wasn't happy as my family had used this practise since the days of my great Grandma &I Grandad....
I had to tell Bernadette and Joanne. They were so understanding and even provided numbers of practises with 3 partners or more for me!
These guys are awesome. Just like family!
Thanks team :)

Lowick mckay has recently conducted two jobs for me. I can say that they are the best. They were very honest with charges (fees were extremely fair), did their best for me (had my best interest at heart), were friendly and very approachable and much much more.... I shall most definitely use them again and do not hesitate to recoment to friends and family. Bernadette and Michelle were my solicitors. I'm so happy with their service.

We were recommended Lowick McKay to represent us during the process of buying our first home. This was quite a daunting process and they made the process a lot easier and clearer with a friendly and professional manner. Documents were sent quickly and and communication was readily available via email. During the latter stage of the process they acted very quickly on our behalf to complete the process which was hugely appreciated. We would have no problem recommending Lowick Mckay.

Bernadette and her team handled efficiently and diligently the purchase of our dream home- a Grade II listed building which on its own could have been very difficult- the property had been converted into two dwellings, there were multiple consents that had to be checked and rechecked and the team did a tremendous job in ensuring all was in place and approved. Not only did they complete this with extreme diligence and professionalism but they also dealt with the remortgage of my existing property where we had to have simultaneous completion. The team did a tremendous job and we were very happy with their service.

We have recently bought and sold with them. The week before the move date we had a serious issue with the first time buyer in the chain. This resulted in having to exchange and complete on the moving day.....thanks to Bernadette's expertise and hard work it was done with minutes to spare. Without her help it would not have happened. Many thanks.

I would like to thank you for all your assistance in the sale of our property. You have been very prompt in returning phone calls and emails to me and keeping me up to date with developments, which is a huge improvement on other solicitors we have previously had dealings with and a breath of fresh air! Property sales and purchases can be quite stressfull but you have made the process very easy and stress free. I would be very happy to recommend you to anyone who is selling their house.

Whilst their knowledge of conveyancing is sound and they are pleasant to deal with, they are completely incapable of dealing with admin in a timely fashion. They would make excuses such as "not having received the paperwork" sent in the post or "waiting to hear from the vendor's solicitor" when it was them that were responsible. One of the solicitors only worked two days a week so this slowed everything down. It was clear that the paper work hadn't been lost in the post, she used the same excuse when an acquaintance of mine had used them; Royal Mail isn't that unreliable! When trying to contact them, I always got the message, "she's just going into a meeting" - she must have been popular as she was always in meetings! There are much better solicitors out there, don't waste your time with this one

I would like to extend my personal thanks to you for the support you have given myself and Will Aid over the years. It has enabled us to do so much for the Will Aid charities. I have very much enjoyed working with you and continue to be amazed at the time, effort and commitment shown by the solicitors like yourself who have helped to make Will Aid the nation’s leading charity will-writing scheme.

I am sure that the new Campaign Manager will be in touch with you to introduce himself and to let you know about the new arrangements. The campaign office will be moving to London and a new team will be in place shortly to provide all the usual campaign services for Will Aid 2015.

Last week I posted your certificate recording what you have achieved for Will Aid, together with a newsletter giving you the latest news about Will Aid and the charities you are supporting. If it does not arrive within the next few days do let us know.

On behalf of myself and my colleagues, I would like to wish you all the best for the future. I am proud of what we have achieved together and I hope that you and your practice will continue to thrive.

This firm acted for us in the sale and purchase of our properties. Their fixed fees were very reasonable and the service was second to none. Myself and my wife both work full time and so we mostly kept in contact with our solicitors by e-mail which was very helpful. Our solicitor always got back to us the same day (usually within minutes). She kept us informed throughout. She was very professional, friendly and lovely to speak to. We cannot recommend this firm highly enough.
