"I used SMR Solicitors for both a sale and purchase. The whole process from beginning to end was handled professionally. Jannette Luker took care of the conveyancing for both. Moving home is stressful however with SMR I never felt there would be a problem that Jannette could not solve. I would thoroughly recommend this company."Anon
