My case was far from straight forward, but it was handled with professionalism and care throughout. I was always kept in the loop. Could not have managed without you!
With special mention to Leila Murray and the conveyancing officer whose name escapes me. Also Sarah Lynch.
Expert advice received resulting in a good decision being made and efficient action taken.
Kate Barnes – very pleasant to deal with.
Leila handled my mum’s Estate very well during the trying times of Covid lockdown.
You were the wise captain from the start and kept the tiller steady despite my interferences.
Sorry it took me so long to recognise, we could have had this finished a year earlier had I recognised that “soft power” is 9/10 times how you win a case or win at life in general.
I’ve learnt a lot from this horrendous ordeal. I believe I have become a much better person and mother because of this.
I have enjoyed (almost) every minute working with you.
You could achieve anything you set your sights on in life. You have mastered “reasonable, likeable & professional/trustworthy”.
Brian kept us informed about everything. Any questions, Brian always, got back to us quickly.
Brian Smith, was easy to communicate with, always got back to us quickly and kept us up to date.
We are delighted by the service received via Brian Smith – he has been a thorough professional and managed our expectations very well.
Brian did a great job by co-ordinating with us and the various stakeholders to achieve what we wanted.
Brian Smith has been absolutely fantastic and patient with our complex requirements and continues to ensure that we have a smooth journey and we are relying on his expertise and experience for a smooth completion of our property by end of November and the one we are purchasing straight after that.
Leila was very easy to talk to, I was not rushed, could ask anything I was not sure of, nice to have same person as last time.
All completed in an efficient and timely manner despite your heavy workload and the fact it had to be done remotely.
You did as I requested!!
All staff dealt with very helpful and knowledgeable.
Thara Thangavel was friendly, quick and professional. She answered all my questions. As was her secretary, Moira
Brian Smith understands what I need to achieve with each transaction and just gets on with it, advising when necessary.
Thara Thangavel – very clear comm’s and excellent legal skills.
Many thanks for your support in bringing this all to a close. It’s a relief to have finally concluded things. I appreciate your help in supporting this process financially for me too, as there was a point where I genuinely couldn’t see how I would be able to see things through to completion.
As always, fast and efficient when other conveyancers are not. Our sale contract was in the buyers hand within 48 hours of accepting their offer.
Mrs Livermore acted as Conveyancing Executive for the purchase of my new home and she has been absolutely wonderful!! In a short amount of time she was able, during a very hectic and stressful period (with the imminent phasing out of the COVID Stamp Duty holiday), to not only ALWAYS respond promptly but also facilitate the completion of this transaction so that I was able to benefit from the SDLT holiday. Mrs Livermore has been professional, courteous and has patiently explained, in detail, the various stages of the process since this was my first experience purchasing a home in The UK (things were very different to my overseas experiences). Thank you Mrs Livermore for making this a pain-free process!
Always had excellent service from Kerseys. I believe them to be good value for money but have not shopped around as confidence in a firm is always worth it especially in solicitors!
We were first-time buyers and used Kerseys. Our solicitor was Sharon Livermore and she was incredibly efficient, knowledgeable and communicative. I had heard many horror stories about conveyancing solicitors and was so pleased with the speed at which our purchase progressed and the response time and clarity to any questions we had. The estate agents we purchased through also said that Ms Livermore was extremely good at keeping in contact with them and updating them on the progress of the purchase – much more so than the solicitor of the seller who should have been communicating certain details to them. 100% recommend.
Kerseys have always provided me with excellent service, highly recommended.
Sharon was great in getting everything done quickly by the date my buyer wanted (within 2 months) and I am very grateful.
I would highly recommend Kerseys Solicitors for anyone that is looking at purchasing a new home. We had Edward Thomson as our Solicitor who was absolutely brilliant, he was responsive, professional and made the process as easy as it could possibly be – couldn’t have asked for a better service.
Professional, always available if you have to call, very clear in explaining the legal issues, would certainly recommend to friends.
Amber at Kerseys gave us a brilliant service during a very difficult time. She is a delight to work with and I would highly recommend her.
I have use Kerseys for conveyancing on the number of different occasions. I’ve been struck by their ability to respond well the issues raised, they good communication and clear pricing structure. Brian understood my needs and work to achieve a good outcome within a very good timescale. I will be happy to continue using this company.
We dealt with Brian Smith whilst moving home and he was brilliant. Very helpful and through. Would not hesitste to use him and Kerseys again and will definitly recommend to friends!
Kerseys were recommended to me and I’m so pleased I used them for the sale and purchase of my home. Really quick to respond to my initial enquiry and very detailed explanation of the process. Felt valued from the start. From that moment to completion I was kept updated on a regular basis – can’t sing their praises highly enough and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them.
Kerseys was very supportive. Brian Smith very helpful during lockdown
From the first time of contacting Kerseys to the exchange and completion of the property sale I have found their staff, in particular Brian Smith, efficient and professional. The advice and speed of service is first class and I would not hesitate to recommend.
Kerseys have once again been fantastic- we have used Edward Thompson for the last few years for various house and land sales. He has been exceptional in all of the times we have used him. Always reliable, sticks to deadlines, very easy to speak too and knowledgeable regarding the house sale. Would definitely recommend kerseys and in particular Mr Thompson.
I dealt with Jane when I was buying my house. I always knew who was dealing with my purchase. I had regular email contact and she was always prompt in replying to any questions I had.
Brian Smith was excellent and we thoroughly recommend him. Despite being in a pandemic and a race against the stamp duty holiday we were able to exchange and complete ahead of our expectations.
Kerseys were professional helpful at all times, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Kerseys and would use them again if I needed to.
Excellent service from Matthew Clemence on matrimonial matters. Would highly recommend.
Thank you Brian Smith for helping us with our house purchase and sale. You were very responsive and always had the time to assist us with our queries. Everything was done on time and with a great manner of professionalism and efficiency. I will definitely recommend him/ Kersey Solicitors for any future buyers.
Edward Thomson provides an outstanding service on house conveyancing. Quick to respond, extremely diligent and attentive throughout the process, giving excellent advice and assistance at all times.
Outstanding service from Brian Smith at Kersey’s House purchase is never stress free, however Brian ensures a professional and responsive service. Thank you for all your support.
Standard Settlement Agreement, handled efficiently and I was extremely satisfied.
I was provided with a direct line to contact my conveyancer and he was happy to answer any query I had. He worked hard to ensure we completed to a tight deadline.
Very happy with the service Kerseys provided. Professional and helpful every step of the way.
We have used Sharon at Jerseys for 3 house moves now, and have always received exceptional service. Our latest move was just as we were going into lockdown and Sharon went above and beyond, working from home to make sure we completed on our new house. Always very professional, making sure all aspects of the purchase were checked thoroughly and quick to respond to any queries we may have. Overall a great service, thanks.
Having had other legal firms represent me in the past I had certain expectations over quality of service, but Kerseys exceeded them in every way. Utterly professional, knowledgeable, committed and responsive. My legal requirements were very well grasped and the advise I was given was both insightful and in my best interests.
Brian Smith at Kerseys has provided an excellent service with expert advice and guidance throughout our conveyancing process. I highly recommend for quick response to queries and professional support.
Brian Smith has been approachable, professional and a ray of light in what has been a very difficult process in trying times. Thanks Brian and to all your colleagues.
Thara Thangavel who organised our Wills for us was very knowledgeable, professional and helpful when I had something which required an explanation. Because all the requirements we asked for were covered in our Wills and there were also other questions that we hadn’t thought of that Ms Thangavel covered. I rang around several solicitors in Ipswich for quotes on Wills but Thara Thangavel even not being the cheapest was so friendly and helpful I did not hesitate to choose her and Kerseys to take on the task of our Wills.
I enjoyed the fact that I could do everything via email with minimal visits to deliver originals to the office.
My daughter recommended Brian Smith and I would certainly use his services again.
Thara, Thank you for our recent letter regarding our wills.
We have been delighted with the exceptional service we have received in the completion of this matter.
We were advised what we could do as per law and this was explained clearly. We had a virtual appointment via Zoom which went very well and Thara Thangavel was very helpful and informative and explained and advised us clearly and was very helpful in completing our Will.
Good service and reliable. And I have recommended you. Everyone we dealt with was helpful and interested.
Brian Smith was excellent bringing a difficult move to fruition. He was happy to explain, reassure and help whenever he was able and consistently chased our buyers solicitor. We are thankful for Brian’s excellent and professional help. Thank you.
Sharon Livermore did the conveyancing of two properties for me this year and I found her to be meticulous, detailed oriented, timely and reliable. If there was ever a time when she was not in the office she made sure i knew who was deputizing for her and I felt entirely confident in her skills and professionalism. Based on this experience I would have not qualms whatsoever in recommending Kerseys.
Excellent service provided by Brian at Kerseys during recent property purchase. Very quick responses, and always available for phone calls. Would thoroughly recommend.
I always find Thara extremely helpful, approachable and her advise succinct.
Brian Smith has completed another first class transaction for me in what was a difficult and at times extremely stressful purchase. Brian was calming and considerate, offering me sound advice at all times which I really needed and appreciated.
We used Amber Rainford as our Conveyancer at Kerseys for the sale of our property. She was fantastic at keeping us updated and letting us know how things were going despite the difficulties during COVID. She made the whole process smooth, simple and straightforward. Thank you so much for all your hard work.
We worked with Amber Rainford on the purchase of our new (first) home. She was great! She always managed our expectations, kept us up to date with where we were in the process and remained patient and persistent when there were issues came up in the chain above us. Would recommend and definitely work with her again in the future.
As first time buyers we didn’t have a clue what to expect but Edward Thompson was absolutely brilliant with us. Explained the process over and over to me and any queries I had he was more than happy to take the time to answer. Was very professional and when we come to sell the property in years to come he will be my first call to sort it for me.
Couldn’t of received better service from Edward, as first time buyers we weren’t sure on the process however he guided us every step of the way professionally and kindly. I’m sure he worked extra hours just to give us complete peace of mind, no ask was too big. I couldn’t recommend Kerseys Solicitors enough for honest, trustworthy guidance. Was an absolute pleasure working with them.
Our solicitor was Amber and we were extremely pleased with the service we received. Responses to our questions were provided promptly and we were kept well-informed at every stage of the process. This was all the more impressive in light of the current COVID-19 circumstances, and Kerseys performed markedly better than the firms used by both our buyer and seller. Would not hesitate to recommend Kerseys.
Peter Awad was professional and courteous throughout what was a difficult time for me and my family. Peter was caring and sensitive throughout. Everything was fully explained and he kept us informed at all times. Peter listened and explained everything we needed to know.
Edward Thomson at Kerseys solicitors went above and beyond to help us move into the property we now love! Edward is very quick and efficient at his role and always explained every step of the way. I would highly recomend Edward to anyone I meet in need of a conveyancer. Thank you so much for your help Edward! Kind regards, Alistair
Couldn’t fault the service received from Brian and Karen at Kerseys throughout our buying and selling process. Efficient and always kept up to date – would definitely recommend.
We used Kerseys for the conveyancing to purchase our new home and I must say how helpful and professional Amber was. We had issues and set backs caused by other offices and Amber reassured us that it will work out as it did thanks to her going out and above her duties. A big thank you and you are a credit to your profession. I can highly recommend Kerseys as I have had issues with other solicitors whom were unfortunately not as efficient.
I thank Mr Peter Awad for the excellent revision of my Will.
Personal service, comprehensive and efficient.
Really glad that we chose Kerseys. Sharon was very professional and responsive to any queries we had.
Brian Smith of Kerseys provided an exemplary service for our house move. Would highly recommend.
We purchased our first house using Kerseys Solicitors and couldn’t be happier with the service. We had Amber Rainford who has been brilliant to work with, she always responded quickly to emails/phone calls, she was very thorough with her enquires and helpful in giving advice when we were worried about certain aspects with the purchase. The price we paid was also competitive compared to others in the area. Overall fantastic, thank you ?
Excellent solicitors, I use Edward Thomson, the firm is high quality, but good value, very easy to get hold of and get quick sensible answers. Thoroughly recommend them.
During the most uncertain and stressful times Edward was always available at the end of the telephone, he is very responsive to answer any questions or advice needed. Our house purchase was not the most straight forward and Edward got us through and we now have our dream home. Would definitely recommend! Very understanding and professional.
Brian Smith provided an efficient service keeping me informed throughout the conveyancing process.
I recently used Edward Thomson at Kerseys to act on my behalf for a residential investment property purchase. I can’t fault his work. He is professional, knowledgeable and efficient. I double checked all his paper work as I can be a bit OCD at times- not a mistake in sight! He is a great asset to the well established Kerseys Team. Thank you Mr Thomson!
