We recently purchased a house through Manchester Durman during the pandemic. Throughout the whole process which at times was challenging Manchester Durman communicated with us frequently and were amazing to deal with. It's a fantastic team who were always so positive and helpful during stressful times, going out of their way to reassure us and to help us when moving in. In particular James Manchester was fantastic helping us to overcome obstacles during the process. We really appreciated all their help and wouldn't hesitate to recommend them. Myself and my family have moved in now and we are extremely happy in our new home - thank you again Manchester Durman.
I needed to sell my parent's property after my father passed away. This was complicated by my living 3500 miles away, not to mention a global pandemic. James and his team had an offer on the house within 48 hours. Due to a long prolonged probate the sale would take almost 7 months to complete with many obstacles along the way. However the team did an incredible job of keeping both myself and the buyer abreast of developments and truly showed they cared about getting everything completed. It was that personal touch that really impressed me. The house is now sold and I could not be happier with the outcome.
As first time sellers of a UK property we were quite daunted by the whole idea but it had to be done. James Manchester and his team were exceedingly helpful and supportive throughout the process which was quite complex at times. We always managed to get hold of somebody when we needed to and I found the level of service exceptionally high and reassuring.
Selling the property through Manchester-Durman was a very good experience. The staff were knowledgeable, capable, efficient, and prompt with responses to inquiries, and I appreciated their meticulous attention to detail. I also am highly appreciative of the manner in which I was kept up to date with developments. A five-star operation in every way. I am quite happy to recommend them unreservedly.
15 years ago we used James Manchester as our solicitor when we bought our house and were very impressed by him, so we immediately turned to him to act as both estate agent and Solicitor again for the sale of our property. We could not be more pleased by James and all his staff. They have worked relentlessly and professionally throughout always available and always full of suggestions and wise advice. We could ring them at any time or pop into the office at any time and were always met with the same cheerful professional attitude and they were always aware of the latest developments in our sale. I could not rate them more highly. If you are looking for a very professional and motivated firm who work diligently and steadily with a very straightforward and uncomplicated manner then you need look no further.
Manchesters are extremely good at their job. We were kept informed at all times and had every confidence in the team in securing a quick sale and completion. We would highly recommend using Manchesters as your estate agent. Also they offer legal advice and services with the sale which helps with a speedy completion. All members of staff are polite and well trained/informed.
Having been in contact with Manchester Durman on and off for approximately 9 months, I ended up purchasing my new home through them. As the Estate Agent and the acting Solicitor for the vendor, I felt that they were professional in what they did, and were incredibly transparent and communicative throughout the whole process putting their Clients at ease. Whenever I had concerns or questions, these were dealt with.. I would not hesitate to use them again, either as an Estate Agent or Solicitor.
We could not recommend Manchester Durman more highly. Everything went smoothly from start to finish with friendly professional support from the whole team. Our buyer was committed to complete in 3 weeks after we had offered on our new house, and Manchesters did it, leaving no stone unturned. We were informed every step of the way, and whenever we needed advice, it was given. Having the solicitor as part of the team was an incredible help and gave us confidence that nothing was missed. We would recommend Manchester Durman 100% Jean and Cliff Carney
Very professional company all the staff are extremely knowledgeable nothing is to much trouble would not hesitate to recommend them time and time again even better was the fact that both Mr Manchester and Mr Durman are solicitor's so everything can be done in one place.
Having placed our house for sale in the hands of Manchester Estate Agents we were not anticipating that this would lead to so many problems during the following year, none of which I must add were the fault of Manchesters. The final purchaser had been one of the first to view the property and declared his interest from the start. However during the following year the problems that he caused, together with his solicitors and estate agent by way of miss stating his own situation in respect of selling his property to a Land Developer, claiming his mothers house was still in probate, not being able to place the 10% initial deposit, failing to complete on the stated day as well as telling downright untruths either from himself or his estate agent led us to believe that he would never complete the purchase. However due to the determination, patience and expertise of James Manchester and his staff, we eventually were able to complete nearly a year after the buyer had shown interest in the property. As a point of interest and what caused considerable concern was that the buyer had only visited. the property on one occasion and had only stayed for about half an hour! We would certainly recommend Manchesters in every respect although I am sure they would not want another situation like this to arise in the future!
