The conveyancing team at MKB dealt with my house sale and purchase earlier this year. It was a pleasure to deal with people so friendly and clearly competent, nothing ever seemed to be too much hassle. They rang me frequently with updates and were easy to get in contact with.
The team were proactive in dealing with any issues, and kept me calm when things inevitably got stressful! They clearly explained things at every stage of the process.
Overall they made the whole process quick and easy, and I would highly recommend their services to anyone buying or selling their home.
