    What makes us Professional...
    image cannot be displayed
    As Estate Agents as well as Solicitors authorised and regulated by the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA No. 58391) in everything we do, we are focused on achieving the highest possible standards of client care and professional conduct. Our Vendors and Landlords benefit from this and Clients of ours say that it gives them valuable reassurance in our dealings with them. The firm was founded in 1979 and has throughout that time remained in the same family name. The longevity of the firm depends totally on maintaining high standards of professionalism and integrity. All of our in house conveyancers are members of the Law Society's Conveyancing Quality Scheme and were the first firm of Croydon based Solicitors to achieve that membership. Our Solicitors were also the first Croydon based firm to be awarded the Law Society's Wills and Inheritance Quality Scheme accreditation. As members of the National Landlord Association's managing agents division known as UKALA we have access to all the essential checks and insurances that a Landlord might need.

    What makes us Traditional...

    Having been established for nearly thirty five years the firm realises the importance of customer service above all else, and that that is the key to achieving satisfaction and the best possible results. With well experienced staff who are now instilling those ideas on to newer staff we aim to ensure that this continues. Our traditional approach sits comfortably alongside our use of modern day technology in achieving the best possible results, of which we make the very best use. Experience is essential which is why our Sales and Lettings team is lead by a highly experienced Solicitor and estate agent who knows the local area very well.

    What makes us Innovative...
    image cannot be displayed
    Manchesters incorporates both Solicitors and Estate Agents to give a truly forward looking, cost effective and enhanced property selling and letting experience with optional combined marketing and conveyancing offered in a combined rate, no sale, no fee (terms apply). They work together in the same office and from the very first day of marketing are able to share their knowledge in an effort to achieve the best possible outcome. We have found that this helps considerably to predict and avoid difficulties early on in a matter so that our Clients are kept fully informed of progress at all times. Property details are available online as a pdf as well as in paper form, and now incorporate a 360 degree street view feature. Manchesters uses the latest in estate agency software, allowing text and email alerts where desired. Our Clients have the ability as well to case track the conveyancing work online using their own online password.
