Client completed Property Purchase July 2020 and feedback as follows:
“My experience with a property purchase in Lincolnshire went well with the Garner and Hancock team. Despite issues arising that needed to be addressed, these were effectively negotiated with the sellers side, all satisfactorily. The service provided in this exchange/completion contract was careful and timely. I would easily recommend Garner and Hancock in conveyancing for a home purchase. Thank you.”

One Person

...to deal with. You will know the individual solicitor dealing with your matter so that you do you won't speak to someone different every time you call.

Genuine Solicitor

You can be sure it is a solicitor dealing with your matter from the outset – not an unqualified person “supervised” by a solicitor.

Meet in Person

...when you need to. Being able to meet and discuss matters face to face can be very beneficial, especially when difficulties arise or matters need to progress rapidly.

Highly Knowledgeable

We are a firm with a depth of expertise. You may need assistance in future on a range of related issues, so why not establish a relationship with a firm that can advise on more than just your house move.

No Referral Fees for Anyone

Some estate agents recommend a conveyancing firm because of “referral” payments they might receive. We get a lot of our business from family or friends recommending us, and our policy is not to pay referral fees.
