What Our Clients Have to Say


‘I would just like it noted how brilliant Amy Paterson is. Having previously worked for 2 estate agents I have dealt with lots of solicitors and Amy has just been amazing with our house purchase, which exchanged today.

I have never known a solicitor that has always picked up her phone, always replied to emails, makes sure everything is covered when she is on leave and is polite and helpful. She is a credit to your firm and I would like that noted.

We would absolutely recommend Amy and Gard and Co to friends, family etc.’ Ms S Launceston


‘Many thanks for all your hard work, Karen. You certainly made things stress free.’ Mr H Newton Ferrers


‘Catherine, thank you so much for all your hard work as regards my recent house purchase.  I will strongly recommend you to all my friends.’ Mr & Mrs S, Plymouth


‘We are very impressed with your quick responses to emails etc and wouldn’t hesitate to use your company again in the future. It is a far cry from the poor service we received when we used [other conveyancing firm] during our last house sale.’ Mr & Mrs A, Plymouth


‘Karen, I wish to thank you and the whole team at Gard and Co for all your help in buying my new home. Much appreciated.’ Miss K, Plymouth


‘I can highly recommend Natalie as a conveyancing solicitor.  She was able to assist with the sale of the family home and, as time was a huge constraint, she worked extremely hard to ensure that the sale, from start to finish, took just 6 weeks. As I was so impressed with the sale I contacted her recently to assist me with the purchase of a home. I have no doubt that I will be as happy with the service I receive on this occasion too.

I can completely recommend Gard and Co. I have used the family law and conveyancing parts of the company and on both occasions I have been extremely happy with the service I received.’ Mrs T, Plymouth


‘We just wanted to say a big thanks for guiding us through the process, Karen. We are very delighted with our new house.  Thanks for all the i’s dotted and t’s crossed.  We may have another for sale at some point so will be in touch.’ Mr W & Mrs P, Gunnislake


‘My wife and I would like it on record that the service we received from Gard & Co. was first class.  The price we paid was very competitive and we were kept up to date from start to finish.  Honestly, we couldn’t suggest any areas for improvement.  Just keep up the good work.’ Mr & Mrs S, Plymouth


‘WOW!  Just completed on a sale which took JUST 4 working days!  Great teamwork with local firms of solicitors [including] Anthony Longville of Gard & Co. to make this happen.  Happy clients and buyer!  Lang Town and Country Sales and Lettings, Plymouth


‘Thank you Catherine.  You are officially on my superstar list and will be handling my property acquisitions and sales.’ Mr W, Plymouth


‘Thank you so much for all you have done on our sale and purchase.  It was a joy to work with such a professional.’  Ms H, Plymouth


‘You and all your team have been amazing and so professional.  I can’t believe it all went through so quickly and with so little hassle.  Everyone said buying a house is hard but you all made it easy.  I’ll definitely recommend you to others.’  Mr P, Plymouth


‘My wife and I have dealt with Natalie on two occasions, once to buy our first home in 2012 and the other for the sale of that home and the purchase of another in 2016.  On both occasions we found her to be professional, efficient and proactive.  She removed a lot of the stress involved with moving, keeping us updated at regular intervals without being chased.  We also found her to be very good at identifying key information and explaining it to us, rather than bombarding us with every little detail.  I cannot recommend her highly enough.’ Mr H, Plymouth


‘Thank you for your message, how exciting we now own a house!  Thank you for all your help with this, you have been a star.’ Mrs B, Bath

‘I am planning a surprise trip away with my daughter (she goes off to university in a couple of weeks) as soon as I receive my share today I can then pay for our surprise trip. So I would like to thank you for getting the exchange and completion on time as this will now enable me to fund the trip for her and to finally move forward with my life after a stressful few years.’   Mr L, Plymouth


‘We wanted to thank you for the service you provided us at Gard and Co. We have used your services before, at a previous address, and received the very same high quality customer service.

We will definitely be using your services when we purchase our next house in the near future.’  Mr & Mrs B, Plymouth

Natalie, the dust is settling on our move to our new house, and my wife and I just wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you for all of your help and guidance during the conveyancing process.

At every step you were clear about what was required of us and what was happening, and your advice and insight was just what we needed as first time buyers. On top of this you were always approachable and easily contactable, and we never had to wait long for honest answers to our (myriad) questions. After some of the horror stories we’d heard about other people’s dealings with local solicitors, it was deeply refreshing to be able to have such simple and no-nonsense interactions with you.

Once again, thank you very much for all of your help (and Amy too!). We are exceptionally pleased with the service we’ve received from Gard & Co. Your name came to us via a personal recommendation, and we’ll have no hesitation in recommending your services in the future.’ Mr & Mrs V, Plymouth

‘Thanks so much for all your help, you were a great support throughout.  I appreciate you being so thorough and patient, guiding me through the minefield of buying my first house.’  Dr B, Saltash


We would just like to thank you very much indeed for the highly professional, efficient and understanding way in which you acted on our behalf for the sale of ****, which we know was a difficult and time consuming piece of conveyancing.  We very much appreciate all the effort that you went to on our behalf and the way you personally kept us informed of what was happening.  You may be assured that we will definitely be asking you to act for us again on our future property dealings.’ Ms C and Mr I, Plymouth


Can I take this opportunity to thank you for your help with our home buying process. You have been very professional and thoughtful. We will definitely recommend you to our friends.’ Mr & Ms O, Plymouth


‘Karen, I would like to THANK YOU and your firm for helping me with this matter and I would highly recommend you to family and friends.’ Mr & Ms J, Plymouth


‘Late last year we contacted Natalie Barham to ask her to act as our solicitor for the purchase of a flat in London. This was a particularly unusual purchase because, in order to secure the property, we were instructed by the Vendor and the Estate Agent ‘to move like lightning’. We were put very much under pressure to Exchange immediately.

Natalie also had a remortgage of our property in Ealing to deal with. This in itself was a very big task.

To cut a long story short…two weeks later, despite all the hurdles (there were so many), Natalie completed the transaction.

I want to say from the bottom of my heart how extremely grateful we are to Natalie. We hold her in very high esteem. All throughout the transaction she was calm and positive and very, very professional. Her attention to detail and her very sharp mind really impressed us. Her manner was absolutely delightful. She was, in fact, an absolute pleasure to deal with. Nothing was too much trouble for her and she remained so calm and acted with complete professionalism throughout. The amount of work she ploughed through over such a short period of time and the quality of the work she provided, leaving no stone unturned, just really ‘amazed’ us.

We are VERY IMPRESSED with Natalie Barham and indeed the services of Gard & Co. and we will of course return to you time and time again in the future’ Mr & Mrs W, London


‘We are delighted with our and your year’s work. We thank you for your guidance and efforts on our behalf throughout.  We have already recommended your services and understand that our purchasers have instructed your firm to act on their behalf, for the sale of their property.’ Mr & Mrs F, Plymouth


‘Thank you for the job that you did for us. We were very happy with the way that the final pieces came together so quickly and seemingly quite smoothly. We will certainly pass our satisfaction with yourself onto any friends and acquaintances that may need a similar type of service to that which we received from you.’   Mr & Mrs B, Plymouth


‘Now that the dust has settled, we wanted to write to express our thanks to you for all your efforts in acting for us in the sale of our property in Plymouth and this purchase.  We appreciate that it was obviously made more frustrating for you by the difficulty in speaking to anyone in the ‘call centre’ solicitors acting for our purchasers and the missing paperwork from our vendor’s solicitor.  Thanks again, for all your help.’   Mr & Mrs H, Plymouth


‘We are very pleased with your speedy and efficient services and will certainly recommend you to any friends or family.’   Mr & Mrs J, Plymouth


‘Karen, thanks for all your assistance with this sale you have been fantastic.’ Mr & Mrs K, Perth, Australia


‘I will be using Gard & Co. in the future and will recommend you, Karen, to my friends.’  Ms P,  Liskeard


‘Karen, many thanks for your help with the sale of […].  You’ve managed to make a potentially difficult and distressing transaction almost painless.

We were both most impressed with the attention you’ve given this and with the quality of your engagement.

We felt both informed and in control with the wise advice and the speed of communication.  You’ve made it easy to contact you and this was reassuring.

Great value, many thanks.’  Mr & Mrs T,  Plymouth


‘We would like to say  how very pleased we were with the excellent service that we received during our recent house sale.

Initially we chose Gard & Co because the website was very informative and the client reviews were very positive.  The company was also very competitively priced.

Natalie did a fantastic job of keeping us well informed at all times and helped to ensure that the entire process went smoothly and was relatively hassle free.  We would certainly recommend Gard & Co and would not hesitate to use your services again.’  Ms S & Mr L,   Plymouth


‘My wife and I recently purchased a new home and Natalie Barham was our lovely, delightful, professional and caring person at Gard and Co.
