I believe that Chris took the stress out of buying and selling, happy to answer any questions with clear sound advice. Regarding progression of the sale and purchase Chris was regularly in contact with me, if I could not contact Chris he returned my call promptly. All emails were answered on the day as promised. From my initial conversation to the final completion, he provided a personal, prompt and professional service. I trust the above information will be of assistance. Yours Sincerely Mrs Mary A Pacey”

SO Legal acted in the purchase and new lease to our client of a bistro coffee shop in a complicated transaction where the Landlord and Seller wanted to deal with matters themselves. Our legal advisers had to draft and co-ordinate all matters to ensure an efficient and smooth transition.
Thank you so much for what you have done for me over the last few months. You were so professional throughout and dealt with all my queries so quickly and even at the weekend. My case wasn’t so straight forward as you had to deal with a landlord and a seller who both didn’t have any representatives. You stuck to your words and kept my costs under control. If you are buying a commercial business please choose this company as they are professional, courteous and they will look after you throughout the process.

Chris and Jeannet Savory, July 2016
SO Legal acted for local couple in the sale of their buy to let flat working to tight timescales to meet the Stamp Duty Land Tax changes
I had dealt with current partners of SO Legal while in their previous roles, due to the excellent service I’d received previously I was keen to work with them again. This particular transaction was already complex given the Managing Agent, Tenant Occupied and multiple freeholder nature of the sale, further complicated by the deadline caused by recent legislation regarding the stamp duty threshold. Aware of these issues SO Legal acted promptly and delivered a professional service with key advice throughout. Ultimately the transaction was completed comfortably in advance of deadline set by the purchaser and all involved parties were delighted with the outcome. I would have no hesitation in recommending SO Legal
