“Used the solicitors again for a property transaction & all went well. Someone in the company who I rate very highly is Jake one of the staff who is always very helpful & does not let you down, you will go far young chap!”
“I can highly recommend Bonallack & Bishop for a lease extension – Jake was helpful and informative every step of the way.”
“I chose Bonallack & Bishop Solicitors as I wanted a Deed of Variation on a lease. I worked with Jake throughout, his service was outstanding, friendly and professional. I couldn’t have asked for more and happy to recommend.”
“I found Jake to be very Professional in sorting out my Lease on my apartment and would be happy to use Him again”
“We have just completed our lease extension with B&B and everything went smoothly. Jake Holmes dealt with our case and was always prompt to answer our queries, pleasant and efficient to communicate with. The very reasonable price quoted to us was maintained despite there being some extra work to do. I would happily recommend Jake and the firm.”
“I had to extend the lease on my flat and found Bonallack and Bishop’s details on the Home Owners’ Association website. From the first contact with the company I knew that I had made the right choice. My case was handled by Jake Holmes who was extremely professional, helpful and human. He took the time to explain every step of the process in terms that I could understand and was wonderfully clear in both his written and telephone communications. The whole process was handled and concluded very efficiently and I felt supported and informed throughout. I was so impressed by the firm that I asked Jake for assistance in drawing up my will. He passed my enquiry on to the right person and this has now been concluded in a similarly professional and efficient manner. I am immensely grateful to Jake and to Bonallack and Bishop for their assistance.”
“Extremely happy with the service I received from Bonallack & Bishop Solicitors. Jake Holmes assigned to assist with my case was absolutely brilliant. He went the extra mile to make sure everything was correct and up to date before completion. I would most certainly recommend their service.”
“The purchase of the freehold for our property by Bonallack & Bishop was processed in a most professional, helpful and friendly manner.
In particular the assistance and guidance provided by Jake Holmes has been second to
I would have no hesitation in using the services of B&B in the future.”
