What our Clients say about Ian

  • Crombie Wilkinson assisted us with the purchase of our lettings agency business Minster Property some 17 years ago, and we have enjoyed working with them throughout that period. We are now selling up and retiring, and we were very pleased when Ian Barnard and Duncan Morter could assist us with the sale of the business.

  • Just a quick note to say a massive thank you for your expert guidance and advice during the sale of Guardian, I can confidently say without your patience (especially with me!) and calm level head approach this transaction would not have happened. I have no doubts in using your services again and more than happy to highly recommend you to anyone.

  • Having dealt with Crombie Wilkinson before, I was aware of contact details. The solicitor dealing with a previous issue directed me to the correct person to deal with this issue and everybody was extremely helpful and efficient. All email communication was professional, timely and efficient. I had regular emails from my advisor keeping me updated as to the progress. The matter was dealt with in approximately three weeks, which I consider to be excellent. The advisor seemed to understand exactly what was needed and the best solution to provide.

  • Thank you for the way you have handled matters for our family. This has been a long drawn out situation, often stressful with emotions running high but thanks to you it's finally sorted. Your thorough but patient approach has been much appreciated.
