    The firm provided my wife and I with a pleasant, friendly interview appointment where we discussed making our new Wills. The solicitor and her assistant conducted the interview brilliantly, answered all our questions and quickly produced draft wills for us to check and another appointment date to sign off the final versions. An excellent, efficient and friendly service. Well done!

    From start to finish, McKeag & Co have been excellent. I could not fault their customer service and how efficient they were with their job. I would highly recommend them whether your selling or buying a property. I would rate 10 out of 10 for overall service.

    From the second I instructed McKeag and Co to go ahead with the purchase of my first house the service was outstanding. The secretary, Kayleigh Moon, was extremely helpful and responsive. My nerves were put to ease instantly. I can't praise or thank Ian McIver enough, as I was a first time buyer he made it feel so easy and smooth and his professionalism and knowledge was second to none. I don't think I could ever use another firm to buy or sell a house.

    Excellent service provided by a Friendly and professional staff. We have used the firm several times previously and have always been well looked after.

    Thanks to all of you, and the rest of your team, for all of your help during my first house purchase.

    I’ve heard so many horror stories about conveyancers and solicitors who are very disorganised, slow and difficult to communicate with, but my experience of working with your team couldn’t be further from that. You’ve all been so incredibly helpful and supportive throughout, and I couldn’t have asked for more.

    So thank you all once again, and I’ll be sure to be back in touch should I ever need to instruct McKeag & Co in the future.

Also thanks very much for pushing to bring forward the completion date by one week. Excellent service overall.

    McKeag and Co are not only very reasonably priced for their conveyancing services, but their staff are prompt and detailed in every update or response we received. Having been recommended them by our selling agent, we wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to anyone selling in the local area.

    Honesty, integrity and an easy to get along with, very experienced solicitor who supported me, was sympathetic to my predicament and performed to an extremely high standard. “Well done Judith Curry" and I would recommend her professional service to anyone unfortunate to require her help in the future.

    I was extremely happy and impressed with the professional service I received and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to anyone unfortunate enough to require Mckeag & Co services.

    Special thanks to "Judith Curry" (the legal eagle).

    A huge thank you to you and your team for finalizing these transactions on Friday evening - and working so late to do so. I would like to say a special 'thank you' to 2 of your team in particular.

    Lynsey Scott. I have been so impressed with her professionalism, commitment (a late evening talking me through issues) her enthusiasm and her positivity, and of course her knowledge. Her challenging and influencing skills in dealing with other parties have been first class, always in control of the situation! For any future crisis, I would love to have her in my corner!

    Sarah Stanley. Sarah has been my first port of call on several occasions. She has always been so calm, polite and efficient-instantly acting on requests for information, and written communication has always been very clear and most helpful.

    Thank you and your team very much for all your help dealing with first probate and then the sale of my parent's property. It has all been rather complicated but you have always been helpful and offered great advice. I will definitely recommend your company to my friends and family. Once again many thanks and best wishes.
