We are so happy with the whole process!

Waheeda helped us to buy our first house. We are so happy with the whole process! She explained to us (first-time buyers) all the steps and made sure that we met all the requirements and the stamp duty deadline. Waheeda is a very hard-working professional and we are so happy that she was recently promoted - well deserved! We can definitely recommend her services to everyone. Yulia & Sam

Having worked with a number of solicitors I can easily say that she stands out of the crowd in the profession

I did not want to miss an opportunity to recommend Ms Waheeda Joomun. Ms Joomun has been very responsive, clear, concise and professional at all times during both the purchase and sale. Having worked with a number of solicitors I can easily say that she stands out of the crowd in the profession. I'm looking forward to appoint Ms Joomun again. LB
Feedback on Waheeda from a client on December 14, 2018

Waheeda was pro-active, responsive and professional

As I live overseas and wanted to ensure the sale of my home was as hassle free as possible. Berlad Graham’s service surpassed all my expectations. Firstly, in terms of cost, Berlad Graham were half the price of the estate agents recommended solicitors. I was concerned that at half the price I may expect half the service! I couldn’t have been more wrong. Every step of the way my consultant Waheeda was pro-active, responsive and professional. Most importantly for me the service was personal & communication on progress was clear and jargon free.  James Walker
