Manchesters was easily the most competitively priced solicitors in my area. I was a little concerned as to whether this would mean a lesser service but this was not the case. Whilst my purchase did not go as smoothly as I would have hoped, throughout the process it became clear that this was because Mr Manchester paid exceptional attention to detail, not deferring to my pressure but ensuring that the purchase was in my best interests. His advice on both my sale and purchase was given after great care and thought, inferring that he was indeed working for me personally and not just working through an anonymous case file. I would therefore highly recommend him as a solicitor who knows the law to the letter and who will cross all the t's and dot all the i's. The office staff were very friendly and accessible too.

Manchesters posses a wonderful combination of deep property knowledge of the Croydon area with first rate expertise in conveyancing case law and principles.

From our first and subsequent conversations/correspondence, it was evident you took a personal interest in matching our needs and aspirations for a home with what was available on the market and our budget. We are so appreciative of your tireless efforts on our behalf.
