I am very pleased with the excellent service I received from Meera and the whole team who dealt with my case. The price they charged was reasonable and the time they took to sort out everything was just 5 weeks which is lot quicker than I expected. Whole process of my house purchase went very smooth from start to end. Overall I am very satisfied and I would definitely recommend Starch Uberoi Solicitors to anyone.

I had a fantastic experience with Starck Uberoi and specifically, Taj, who was incredibly diligent and efficient in handling my property transaction. Taj responded quickly and in full to any enquiries that I had (I was a First Time Buyer and needed some help and advice along the way) and was proactive in chasing information from myself and the seller's solicitors. It was reassuring to have someone managing that transaction who I could trust to work with integrity and efficiency, whilst encouraging interaction from all sides (seller's solicitor, agent, myself). Starck's pricing structure was also extremely transparent. My final fee was not a penny more than initially quoted, which I perceive to be rare within the industry. I would definitely recommend taj (and Starck Uberoi) to anyone who needs to instruct a solicitor/conveyancing professional.

Had a fantastic experience with Starck Uberoi, but most especially with Rikita. She was brilliant from start to finished, always keeping me in the loop and answering any questions I had. I really felt she had my best interests at heart and represented me well in all matters in buying the property. She was always on hand to deal with any queries or concerns, and stuck to the agreed timeline, always clearly stating when she would get back to me. She was both professional and personable, which really made the process easier and less daunting.Thank you for being a star Rikita!

Had a brilliant experience with Starck Uberoi, particularly with Daniela during purchase of a property. From begging till end of the purchase process Daniela was professional, calm, responsive and explained everything clearly to me. I would definitely reach out to her again if I need her assistance on another occasion and definitely recommend her if you want your case to be handled with the utmost professionalism and extra care. Thank you very much Daniela.

I chose Starck Uberoi over another similarly priced conveyancing firm because Taj answered my initial enquiries in a straight forward and professional manner and without any hard sell. Throughout most of the process to purchase what turned out to be a complicated leasehold property I dealt with Thi. What could have been a very stressful experience was made less so as I felt that my purchase was in safe and competent hands. As a first time buyer, and very keen to rush headlong into the purchase, Starck Uberoi made sure I was informed of all the facts first. I was, therefore, able to carefully consider my options before taking decisions. When the time came, exchange of contracts and completion day went by without a hitch.

I found every step of the engagement with Starck Uberoi to be top notch, from initial phone call enquiry to the guidance provided. For me, the key to all guidance is that it's clear and understandable, which Starck Uberoi delivered without question.My sincere thanks to James Incledon who I found to be excellent. James was dealing with my TOLATA claim.
