We could not recommend Weaver Rose Solicitors strongly enough. Purchasing a home can be stressful - we don't know where we'd be without the calm, efficient & knowledgeable team at Weaver Rose Solicitors. They were an absolute pleasure to work with and will be our first port of call for all legal needs in the future.
We used Weaver Rose solicitors for a property purchase. The team were brilliant, very quick and efficient in replying to every phone call or email, nothing was too much trouble. Would highly recommend to anyone!
Extremely professional, efficient and friendly. Ghazia Butt specifically did an amazing job acting as our solicitor. The best we have had. Thank you.
