"A short note to commend the outstanding work of Graham Dorman during my flat purchase near Fleet Street – This was a complicated purchase involving a complex lease and many parties, including a managing agent and a residents' management company. The central location also meant the searches threw up an enormous volume of planning applications. Graham's
recommendation of an exclusivity agreement brought confidence throughout the process.
His extensive knowledge of London residential conveyancing was both obvious and critical at certain pivotal moments. For instance, when his personal knowledge of the people involved allowed me to take the necessary calculated risks to close the purchase.
He dealt with matters quickly and I always felt he was looking after my interests. I have already recommended Graham to other people buying property and I fully intend to use his expertise again for the forthcoming lease extension.” - Martin Tate, IT and Management Consultant
