1st class, highly professional, no fuss service. Everything was explained point by point in writing and the total bill was broken down for peace of mind. We have used these solicitors for 35yrs now and have never been disappointed.

I was given Simons number at Magnays and he returned my call straight away. I was concerned as I am in a rural area however distance was not a concern. I agreed the price before proceeding and it was honoured despite extra costs. My calls were returned on every occasion and I was strategically copied into every corrospondance with the other solicitors regarding my property. This diffused an accusation that I was holding up the exchange as I had all the emails showing that the delays were not on my side. It also served to keep me in the loop. I completed within six weeks and I can honestly say that as someone who is not used to dealing with lawyers and conveyancing and given I was on holiday for three of those weeks, it was an absolute pleasure to have Simon working for me. He had everything in hand and was extremely prompt. I am sitting in my new property a very satisfied client. Thanks guys.

I received an excellent service from this firm when selling a property. Simon Hedley really went the extra mile and even persuaded my mortgage lender (after a lot of persistence) to waive its early repayment charge because of my personal circumstances. This saved me a very substantial five figure sum, for which he made no extra charge. An amazing result!

Simon Hedley handled our property sale in Sussex and provided a truly excellent service. He kept us copied in on emails throughout, which highlighted that those acting for the buyers were not only extremely incompetent but were even lying to their own clients. His highly amusing and trenchant emails enabled us to prove this to the buyers when we discussed progress. Simon really fights your corner and pulls no punches with the other side, showing them up for what they are. Our estate agent said that the service we had received was the best he had ever seen and that he would recommend Simon to others on the strength of our experience. I would certainly do so too and have. The fees charged were well worth the service provided.

Simon Hedley of Thomas Magnay was simply excellent during our recent house purchase! We were kept informed with regular updates and were provided with thorough and detailed reports for all searches. Also the key points of our mortgage offer were explained to help us make good choices. All work was completed very efficiently and accurately and he was very good at dealing with the other party's solicitors to resolve potential problems. Additionally, all emails and telephone calls were responded to very quickly. Overall a very high standard of service provided for a reasonable, transparent fee. We would not hesitate to instruct Simon Hedley again in the future and would recommend anyone to do the same.

Well what should have been a simple few months process of buying my own land turned out to be a nightmare by no fault of Simon. His persistence, knowledge of this type of law and communication was outstanding. We had frustrations with the other solicitors but Simon kept a cool head and took care of everything, as I would have been stressed to hell! It’s a rare thing to have a solicitor who actually communicates with you, usually their assistants or they just don’t bother, Simon was always available. The job is now completed and if anyone is looking for a good solicitor, look no further. Thank you Simon.

It has been apparent that a high level of professionalism has been maintained throughout the process.
The conveyancing has been performed with rigour and competence.
Good communication, helpful advice and excellent client/customer care are hallmarks of the practice both in conveyancing and matters of probate law (as provided by Mr P Magnay) as far as I am concerned.

We currently live overseas and needed to sell our apartment in Newcastle. Simon Hedley looked after us through this process and we always felt that we were in good hands. We did not have to worry about coming in to the office and were able to liaise very efficiently with Simon via. email without delays. He was very knowledgable on leasehold apartments, which can often be tricky. The fees were good and in line with a small firm's fees, which we were pleased with.

Having had mixed experiences with solicitors in the past we were sceptical when it came to instructing one for our first house move together.

However from having made the initial contact through to completion, the process was seamless and Simon was an absolute pleasure to deal with. Every aspect of the process was logically explained and set out which made our lives so much easier than we could have hoped for. Although not the cheapest quote we had received, it was certainly very fair value for money.

We had been recommended this firm by a family member and we have since mentioned on numerous occasions to family and friends how friendly and efficient the service has been.

We would not hesitate to recommend Thomas Magnay & Co for anyone who is looking to instruct a firm for a house move. Fantastic all round service.

I chose to use Thomas Magnay & Co for my property sale and purchase based on a recommendation. As they are a relativley small firm I was given an experienced partner to solely handle my case rather than this being delegated to a paralegal or trainee solicitor. Simon the partner was very professional and communicated well throughout the process. My emails were always answered swiftly and I never had a problem contacting him by phone. I did not shop around for price but I would happily pay slightly more for the service I recieved.

We used Simon to purchase our current house, after a recommendation from another solicitor. I cannot praise his professionalism and efficiency enough. Our house purchasing efforts fell through four times and at each stage Simon was at the other end of the phone / e mail with advice as to how to best deal with the situation. Our eventual purchase was not straight forward - very limited access, spring water fed and surrounded by land belonging to half of Weardale - but Simon navigated us through every issue and gave us every confidence to go ahead with the purchase. We could not recommend him more highly - and would use him without hesitation.

Having used Thomas Magnay & Co a number of times now, I couldn’t recommend the firm high enough for the purchase/sale of a property. Simon Hedley navigated a particularly difficult house purchase for us, being approachable, timely, professional and incredibly knowledgeable at all times. Simon is the kind of legal support you would always wish to have when in a tricky house sale or purchase, I will always continue to use the firm in any future transactions and will always recommend to friends and family

As another client of Simon Hedley, our dealings with him have been nothing but totally satisfactory. From the date of our agreeing to purchase the property in question on
24 April 2018 to the completion of all conveyancing on 15 May 2018.. he guided us through the process and all correspondence was answered extremely promptly, usually within minutes. Unlike the man in Australia, we have met Simon..on three or four occasions at his office during that period and found him to be the soul of quiet efficiency...could not wish for better and definitely plan to use him for our next purchase.

I recently moved house for the fourth time in five years and so have a few comparators for the service I received from Mr Hedley of Thomas Magnay.
He was absolutely first class. I would recommend him wholeheartedly.
I was kept fully informed by him throughout the process, which happened to be a long and tortuous sale and purchase with boundary issues and other setbacks. Mr Hedley worked like a Trojan on my behalf and was a doughty defender of my interests throughout. He was so professional. When I was at a very low ebb with a late emerging problem with my sale, I emailed him on a Saturday evening, just so the information would be waiting for him on the Monday morning when work resumed. In fact he replied to me the same evening. I was so surprised and delighted with the exceptional service I received. Hopefully I am now settled in my new home but if I ever had to move again I would go back to Mr Hedley at Thomas Magnay without hesitation.

I have recently sold and bought a property and used Simon Hedley as my solicitor. I could not fault him and would definitely use him again in the future. Throughout the process he kept me informed of everything that was happening by copying me into all his emails and when I needed to contact him via email he replied straight back. He was very thorough and I felt confident that my sale and purchase was in good hands. Money from the sale was in my bank on the same day despite the completion going through late as a result of my buyers solicitors. The two estate agents involved even commented positively on him as a solicitor as they were updated regularly via his emails.

I recently purchased a property and used Thomas Magnay & Co for their conveyancing service. As a first time buyer, there were various aspects of the house purchase I did not have experience of, however Simon was very thorough and ensured I had a full understanding throughout the process.

Simon provided an explanation and overview for each search and was quick to respond to any queries raised. Simon was very efficient and made sure any responses from the third party solicitor were quickly received. I would and have, strongly recommend Simon to others.

Simon came recommended from a family member who had used his services before. As it was my first time buying, I was rather clueless about the various processes involved and Simon was absolutely fantastic with this. He explained the entire process, exactly what was required of me, and was thorough to the endth degree. So much so that I actually pulled out of a purchase on his advice, having found a concerning item buried deep in the contract. The eventual purchase was long-winded due to seller delays however Simon was always on hand and continually pressed to expedite the process.

I would not hesistate to recommend Simon to anyone, he was patient, ever-present, and really fought my corner even when it was not necessarily his responsibility to do so.

Simon Hedley dealt with our conveyancing.
On our sale he was very efficient ad responsive,copying us into all correspondence.
As soon as our sale concluded, as there was a delay between our sale and purchase, he took his fee agreed for our purchase from sale proceeds and then everything ground to a halt.
We were then in temporary accommodation and we struggled make contact with him. We tried to remain polite and friendly but he basically ignored our emails until we started threatening other alternatives.
From then he has done his job and to his credit picked up on a number of issues re the new build we were buying, so don't want to be completely damning. But he failed to pay our stamp duty and register title straight way until we chased.
Also we have had issues with developer re breach of contract and he said he would follow up and contact other parties solicitor but now does not respond to emails.

Certain of these comments are incorrect in that:
1. The stamp duty land tax payment was lodged within the correct period.
2. The Land Registry application was lodged within the correct period.
3. Emails were not ignored.
4. The fees taken from the sale proceeds were as agreed by the clients at the outset.
5. The clients chose not to follow my advice and did not inform me of certain prior arrangements, both of which resulted in later problems with the other side and disgruntlement.

I am in a perfect position to access and respond to this review because my firm uses Simon Hedley of Thomas Magnay & Co., and because we have a regularity of international dealings with law firms in the UK, US, and Asia with which to compare.

I’m sorry to say this client’s review smacks of the sour grapes of an inexperienced buyer who does not understand land dealings and who may have made a poor purchase choice.

Madam, land dealings are, by their nature, necessarily slow for the protection of the parties and of the system of registration. And your solicitor is not to blame for the all too common problems with developers.

We have had shocking experiences with law firms. You do not want one of those.

In my experience, everything Simon does is prompt, properly considered, and legally correct. His communications are precise and informative, and his absolute professionalism gives a great deal of comfort.

I have never met Simon. Yet I feel compelled to defend him on account of the excellent service we get from him, and I find it very hard to believe he would have given you anything less.

In the complex world of paperwork, I give Simon my strongest recommendation.
