"We as a family have used MSP for a range of things from registering a property, buying and selling a house , Power of Attorney and doing a Will We have dealt with Katie who is fabulous and nothing is ever too much trouble. She is very professional, friendly and is very happy to answer any questions you may have. We have also dealt with Fiona when we found out that our house had never been registered with the land registry. Fiona was very helpful and very prompt in keeping us updated with the progress of the registration. Everyone who we have dealt with at MSP legal have been great and I would very much recommend them. Thanks for everything"
