"I work with a few lawyers, and Rhian is definitely the best and the most reliable solicitor. She is diligent, quick in response, professional and above all of excellent integrity. During COVID lockdown, she continued to provide uninterrupted service; When there are questions on the mortgage procedures, she took an extra mile to clarify for me. She is very knowledgeable on property lease, from the latest EWS1 requirement to multiple layer of leasehold structure. She also kept proper records and filing, including the communications with the bank. I would definitely recommend her to my friends and family. "
