Results that speak for themselves

  • Sheila Biskup was extremely professional and always available to take our calls which is rare with other solicitors. We found her expertise to be extremely supportive and patient too. It has been our best experience buying a house and dealing with legal matters.
  • Lisa was brilliant and the glue that kept everything together. We would certainly work with her again. Thank you!
  • Service was brilliant! Very thankful for such a quick turnaround on us buying our house. When it came to the crunch and it looked unlikely to complete, you pulled out all the stops and went above and beyond to get us sorted. Many thanks!
  • My partner and I were really happy with the service Timms provided. As first time buyers, the process was daunting and confusing at times, but Sheila helped to make it as straight forward as possible. She took the time to explain anything that we didn’t understand and kept us updated throughout. Thank you Sheila and the team!
  • As always, the conveyancing services at Timms executed by Sherrie Litherland and Tracy Insley were excellent. I would recommend Timms to others.
