If you're looking for a well organised friendly and efficient service you need look no further. Our property was unusual in that it was notionally a bungalow but, being built on sidelong ground, it had many steps, which rendered it unsuitable for the Darby ...

Seemed to be standard fees (a percentage of the selling price) for the service, although the VAT on top seemed unnecessary, as it was a fixed rate deal. Expensive for the service offered, but in our case worth it, I think.
