Recently sold and brought a property using Cooper Lingard and have to say James Baker and his colleagues were amazing. Easily contactable unlike a lot of moving solicitors and made the process as easier as it can be considering how stressful moving house can be. Thanks for all your help.

People often criticise working with their solicitors as a difficult part of the house buying process, but for us it's been the opposite; the team at Cooper Lingard has been the most steady and reassuring part of it all, and we would strongly recommend them as conveyancers. We'll certainly be using them again when we next move. Thank you to James & everyone at CL!

Really happy with the work that James Baker has just completed for me on the sale of my aunt and uncle's bungalow under my power of attorney. Smoothed out a couple of issues we had without fuss or bother and I would have no hesitation in recommending James's conveyancing skills to others.
