Don't Take Our Word For It....Read What Our Clients Say

I would like to say thanks for all your work in getting the 2 flats I purchased through Cunningtons to completion prior to the end of March (after March I would have of course incurred significant costs in the shape of stamp duty on the buy to let purchases).  In what was not the most straight forward case and with numerous issues raised by the lender, your prompt response and advice ensured the transactions still went through and I thank you sincerely for your efforts. 

Particularly with the second purchase being instructed by me with only about 1 month to go before the end of March, it was a very quick turn-around to get that, indeed both, transactions completed in such quick and efficient time.

I have used Cunningtons for almost 15 years, and I would certainly be happy to do so again, including recommending yourself and Cunningtons to friends and family.
