We would like to express our appreciation to Stuart Newell of Chattertons (Lincoln office) for his excellent work, kindness and professionalism when dealing with the sale of our business. We thought the process would be simple and had not considered all the implications that could occur.
Stuarts diligence and patience helped us through the many problems and we would have no hesitation in recommending him to others and it goes without saying we would definitely use him again
