Excellent service - Thank you for everything you have done to make this as smooth as possible. Just walking the probate over to Lloyds may seem a small thing, but to me it was extremely helpful. Very much appreciated!
From beginning to end the process has been clear and systematic, and I have been guided every step of the way. If I had any questions or queries Karla responded swiftly. Karla is a knowledgeable, efficient and conscientious worker who is able to communicate very effectively with your average layman – such as myself.
