Richard was very good at soothing our nerves when things got more than a little fraught. Whilst it only took about 12 weeks from accepting an offer to exchanging contracts, the process was very much complicated by the incompetence of our solicitors. Richard had to step in and liase between ourselves and both solicitors to find out just what the hell was going on. Without his help I would have thrown in the towel on several occasions and withdrawn the property from sale which, seeing as we had a cash buyer, would have been both financial and marital suicide. Many thanks to Richard.
