We contacted Dales LLP regarding the sale of our property on the advice of our Estate Agent, as we were looking for a firm with experience of rural residential properties.

Alastair Dale dealt with the sale and we were delighted with the service provided. As expected, the transaction was not entirely straightforward and various complications arose during the process, mainly due to the age and type of the property and the length of time since it had last been on the market. However with Alastair’s knowledge and advice we were able to deal with these issues as they arose, and he kept us informed of progress at all stages until a satisfactory conclusion was reached.

We would certainly recommend Dales to anyone in a similar situation.

Both as a tenant farmer and an owner occupier we have used the services of Dales on a number of occasions. We have never doubted the advice and quality of service we have received which has always been excellent. Dales are a family business which ensures a good friendly relationship with myself and my family and sets it apart from others.
