Steven Thompson, Yate near Bristol
For the past year we have been renting a 2 bed flat while searching for somewhere to buy. Originally we put an offer in on a property which on paper seemed great, but unfortunately the searches brought up some worrying news and we pulled out as the house was at risk of flooding. Following another property hunt we came across the house we have recently moved into – a three bed terrace which is very nice. Because we’d chosen to use 1st Property Lawyers from the very beginning, the searches on the new house were free, and our conveyancer Melanie was fantastic. She talked us through the whole process, explained about the search guarantee and was so polite on the phone, that I felt whatever question I asked caused no trouble at all.
Our new home is only about two years old, so doesn’t need much work. We have basically moved straight in. The house is situated in Yate near Bristol which was our first choice of location, being close to work and family; plus with my partner being pregnant, the move couldn’t have come at a better time.
I’ve already recommended 1st Property Lawyers to people and I’d have no hesitation in using them again in the future; but as we’re planning on staying here for the next 5-10 years, they may have to wait a while for my repeat business - I just hope Melanie is still there!
