Delighted with the service I have received from your lettings team. Very professional, friendly and helpful.
I used the services of Macleod and McCallum Solicitors, to buy a flat in Inverness and sell my house in Inverness. The whole process was completed between mid February and mid April by the firm’s Property Department. The service provided was excellent, efficient and expeditious and what I thought might be stressful turned out to be a pleasant and informative experience dealing with the Department.
I can only say that we have been absolutely delighted with every aspect of the process from start to finish. You were the first solicitors to respond to our request for quotes..by a long way. Once the process was under way your company have been exemplary in keeping us updated timeously on each stage of the transaction. The whole process has been trouble-free and painless. I would have no hesitation in unreservedly recommending your company.
Lindsay, Many thanks for sorting all this out. It is very much appreciated, and is another milestone crossed for us in terms of having us both on the deed and the mortgage. Your assistance with all this has been, as always, fantastic and everything has been done in quick time, with us being informed of everything in detail throughout. We are very pleased with everything.
Mac & Mac have dealt with the lease of our property for almost 20 years. I can’t rate the staff in the lettings department highly enough, namely Gemma Duncanson (our first point of contact and always ready with help and advice), Sarah Anne Gow, Karen and Jane. Our thanks to all you girls. We decided this year (2023) to sell the property and were transferred to Janette Dillon, who dealt with the sale professionally and efficiently and secured the asking price for us. Many thanks Janette. Ultimately, we have to pass on our gratitude to Lindsay Bishop for handling the legal side with speed, efficiency and professionalism. Thank you also Lindsay. We definitely recommend Mac & Mac.
As I have been dealing with Mac & Mac now for quite a few years after a recommendation and never been disappointed with the excellent service and efficiency, especially within the property department they are a pleasure to deal with at all times.
Extremely Satisfied and would Highly Recommend. Aidan Grant was very responsive, always replying to emails in a timely manner and even outside of working hours when needed to progress our purchase and sale. Email replies were always clear. We received a great, professional service overall and very much appreciated Aidan’s hard work and commitment to progressing our sale and purchase as quickly as possible.
Thank you for completing the sale of my lodge and transmitting the cash balance to my account. It has arrived safely. Thank you for a friendly and efficient service. Your communications were always prompt and to the point and you resolved any problems quickly.
Thanks again for your communicative, efficient and prompt and overall excellent service.
We are absolutely delighted with the service Macleod & MacCallum provided. Lindsay is very efficient and sorted the sale out, it was made very easy for us. Bev and Lindsay were always available with any questions we had no matter how trivial and so approachable. Thank you so much for selling our house. We would highly recommend your services.
At all times the team was very responsive and highly professional. Any of our questions about the conveyancing process were answered straight away without any need for follow up, and we felt in safe hands. Best solicitors we’ve used in a long time.
Having used Lindsay Bishop to both buy and sell property, I would not hesitate to recommend her to others. She is extremely knowledgeable, always prompt in all correspondence and regularly kept me up to date. Always has the client’s best interests at heart and was a pleasure to do business with. You won’t be disappointed if you utilise her services.
Rory Carson provided an exemplary end-to-end service when I recently sold my flat and bought a house with my partner. Rory was communicative throughout the process and at no point was I unsure of what next steps or timescales were. There was never any need to chase him up about anything. My home move was made very straightforward by Rory who did a great job of pre-empting the normal problems that arise when moving home. There were one or two minor issues that Rory already had a solution for by the time I learned there’d been a problem. This completely avoided any unnecessary stress and allowed me to more or less forget about the legal side of things and focus on actually moving home. I will certainly ask that Rory deals with future home moves and would not hesitate to contact Macleod and MacCallum for any other legal services.
Tomas Simpson from the residential conveyancing team explained clearly and precisely the whole process of the sale of my property which was completed smoothly, seamlessly and professionally.
Aidan helped us through all the legal procedures in selling our house, as we downsized in our old age. He replied to emails very promptly and worked long hours. We couldn’t have had better service. It was a comfort to know that we could rely on him absolutely.
I am personally telling anyone who asks how pleased I am with the service your firm gave me but I also want you to take my comments personally. You did a brilliant job.
We have been very happy with the service from Maclead & MacCallum, from your quick response to our initial contact regarding selling the flat and your advice on the process and current market conditions, though to the conclusion of the sale. It’s been a pleasure dealing with your team through what can be a stressful process.
I’m completely satisfied with your service Aidan, I can say it was super easy, super smooth, no hassle or any issue whatsoever during this process. I felt like you did everything what you can on the short timescale what we had in this situation, which I really appreciate. I can definitely recommend your service to others and again thank you very much to sort literally everything so quick and so efficient.
Recently purchased a flat using MacLeod and MacCallum and things could not have gone smoother. Incredible response time with questions or queries I had via phone or email and was always greeting with a warm welcome. They did everything in their power to move things forward as quickly as possible within a tight time frame due to the circumstances surrounding the purchase. Would highly recommend to anyone, regardless of being a first time buyer like myself or already on the properly ladder.
We have engaged the conveyancing department of Macleod & MacCallum many times over the years and have always been impressed by their professional service. Alison Martin, Director and her team in the property section provide a smooth service from start to finish. There are always timely updates and availability to answer questions along the way. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Macleod & MacCallum.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your efforts and the work you have completed for us in regards to our sale. We can honestly say the whole process ran very smoothly and with the funds all being transferred early the access to the property was no problem at all. We are very satisfied with the way you have conducted the business of Macleod & MacCallum, and would be happy to recommend the firm to other potential customers. We will definitely be in touch with yourself as a first port of call in the future.
Gemma McClelland from Macleod and MacCallum provided a very professional and excellent service throughout my recent purchase of a property. I am very grateful to her for her legal expertise and very personable manner. I have no hesitation in highly recommending her and should I require the services of a property solicitor again, she would definitely be my first port of call.
Lindsay, I would like to take the opportunity to thank you and your staff at Macleod and MacCallum, for all your excellent work on the various aspects of the sale of our Mum’s house.
Communication and advice was first rate throughout the process and made it all the easier for us a family and we are extremely grateful for this.
Lindsay, Just a quick e mail to say a thank you for your efficient service in dealing with the sale of my property in Inverness.
Everything was dealt with in an efficient and professional manner, such that I would have no hesitation in recommending your office, Macleod & MacCallum, to others requiring such a service.
I would like to thank you for all your hard work on my case over past 3 years. You have been great help and provided me with so much support, I appreciate it very much.
Lindsay, I must congratulate you on how you dealt with the sale of 71 as the time was short between the acceptance of the offer and the date of entry. I would recommend you to any of my friends who wished the services of a solicitor.
I am so grateful to have had such a communicative and helpful solicitor. I think it has only been 6 weeks since I first made contact with M&M and I am already sitting in my property! I was kept informed by Aidan of every step, which was amazingly helpful as I was a first time buyer who had no idea what to do. I was recommended Macleod & MacCallum from multiple family members who had nothing but praise for the company and I can now also agree that it is definitely most efficient and helpful solicitor firm in our area. I am very grateful for my conveyancer Aidan and his team for getting me into my first property within a matter of weeks and I am delighted with how smoothly it all ran.
Once again thank you so much. I would personally recommend yourself and Macleod & MacCallum to anyone requiring the services of a property solicitor.
Macleod and MacCallum did an excellent job of handling the sale of our mother’s property. Alison and Janette’s expertise and professionalism throughout the whole process ensured everything went smoothly with minimal stress and in the end achieved an excellent outcome for us all as a family. I would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Macleod and MacCallum.
Thank you very much for all you and your team have done for me.
From the outset Macleod and MacCallum’s Property Service has provided an efficient and professional service resulting in a speedy and satisfactory sale.
Having recently sold a plot of land through MacLeod and MacCallum I cannot fault them for the service I received. From the initial enquiry to the day, it sold 11 months later I found the whole team to be professional, honest, efficient and approachable. The marketing turned out to be a more complex than initially anticipated but each hurdle was dealt with to my entire satisfaction. Sincere thanks to Bev and her colleagues within the sales team.
Lindsay kept me well advised and informed throughout the sale of my house. I felt confident that everything was being handled correctly and the whole process was seamless, there was no unnecessary stress as Lindsay was so helpful and professional. I have used Macleod and MacCallum legal services before for housing matters and will do so again in the future.
Thank you Aidan. You have provided me with the best service I’ve ever had from a solicitor and you’ve made the whole process incredibly easy, so thank you for that.
A number of people recommended Macleod and MacCallum to me when selling my property recently, I can see why as I was very impressed with the service provided. The property sold within going on the market in three weeks. From the very first contact with Janette, the marketing package and to the signing of the missives overseen by Peter, everything went smoothly. First class experience and service. Will use again and highly recommend their company.
Over the last 15 years I have used Macleod and MacCallum for buying and selling houses as well as managing residential lettings. I have always found the staff very friendly and professional. Always happy to discuss various scenarios based upon current market conditions whether it be in property sales or rentals. They have offered sound advice and provided a very good service throughout.
It’s often crossed my mind but I’ve never got round to emailing. I’m very happy that you are my agent. You do a great job on my behalf and I really feel that you’re protecting my interests. I just wanted to say how much I appreciate that.
As a first time homebuyer in the UK I can’t over emphasize how much I valued your council , guidance through the process and especially how responsive you were to my multiple enquiries during the purchasing process. If I ever need a Solicitor again, you’ll be the first person I’ll call .
Rory, Thank you for getting the sale over the line we really do appreciate it.
Your service was excellent from start to finish.
Gemma & Emily have been fantastic to deal with in our land acquisition. From the outset they understood our requirements, guided us and kept us fully informed as the transaction progressed. Their attention to detail was excellent and the transaction settled smoothly. I would highly recommend Gemma & Emily in domestic conveyancing.
Lindsay, We’ve been very impressed with your professionalism, attention to detail and clear and timely communication. You’ve been available for advice and support and have demonstrated experience and expertise. It’s been a pleasure working with you.
Macleod and MacCallum have shown themselves to be an excellent company of solicitors during my recent home purchase. From the start and through the whole process communication was personal and thorough. Throughout I felt really well informed about that was happening and was given a clear timetable and sequence of events, this gave me great support and confidence during the sale process.
I rented a property in Inverness for a year and Karen and everyone in the Lettings Department were absolutely fantastic. The leasing process was really well prepared and easy to complete, the regular inspections were arranged to suit my schedule and the ending of the lease was quick and straightforward. I would highly recommend them, if I ever return to the area I will definitely get in touch with them.
Excellent service from the first viewing to getting handed over the keys to our rented property. Well recommended. Agents were very helpful and were just a phone call away when we needed them
From the moment when I made an initial enquiry about the sale of my property to the date of completion, Macleod & MacCallum provided a dedicated, friendly, professional and fairly priced service. I was given regular updates which set me at ease and gave me comfort and confidence throughout the process. I would highly recommend Macleod & MacCallum.
Macleod and MacCallum let our property for several years ensuring that our home was checked on every 6 months, providing us with a detailed assessment of the homes condition which gave us peace of mind knowing that our property was being looked after, given we live out of the area. When we decided to sell, once again the agents have been faultless and managed to secure a buyer fairly quickly and we were updated throughout the process all the way to completion. These agents are great to work with, very personable yet professional. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone else and if we’re every back in the market again, we’ll most definitely be in touch.
Karen has been by far the most efficient and friendly agent that I have ever dealt with. I have rented dozens of properties before, but have never received a level of service quite like Karen at Macleod and MacCallum. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for an ‘on the ball’ agent. Thanks for the 2 years of great service.
We have had exception service from Sarah-Anne and the Macleod and MacCallum team over the last 25 years. We could not recommend them highly enough for their efficient and friendly service.
We would like to express our gratitude and appreciation to you and your firm in the handling of our recent purchase of a house in Scotland. Throughout the whole process you have been very helpful and professional, and responded quickly to any questions raised. We would certainly pass on any recommendations of your services.
We have used the Macleod & MacCallum solicitors, estate agents & financial advisers for numerous years in their various departments within the firm and will continue to do so due to their professionalism and dedication. Without a doubt they have made everything less stressful throughout the process. Once again, many thanks to all members of the team.
Thank you for all you have done for the family, for your hard work, I am very impressed with your professionalism and the speed which result was achieved. It is appreciated.
Macleod & MacCallum have just handled the sale of my property and I am very pleased with the service they provided. Janette Dillon, property manager always quickly and efficiently responded to any queries I had, even when I encountered a concern over a holiday weekend. Nothing was too much trouble for her. Her team were also pleasant and helpful.
We can’t thank Alison Martin enough for her assistance in purchasing our first home. Her expertise, attention to detail, and dedication to ensuring a smooth and stress-free process was invaluable. From explaining complex legal jargon to swiftly handling any issues that arose, Alison was amazing at helping us achieve this milestone. We wholeheartedly recommend her services, and those of Macleod & MacCallum, to anyone in need of a trustworthy and knowledgeable solicitor. Thank you for making our first home-buying experience a success!
I was very happy with the service I received from MacLeod and MacCallum when selling my property. From the initial valuation and advertising, to the final sale, Bev was very helpful and professional. She was more than happy to meet all prospective viewers and handled negotiations with skill.
In September 2014 my wife and I sought tenders from Letting Agents to manage six new build flats which were nearing completion and this is when we first met Sarah-Anne Gow of Mac and Mac. During the time they have been managing our flats, we have been delighted with the friendly, knowledgeable and supportive way their team have undertaken the task and in our view their performance has been ‘superior’.
Absolutely without a doubt first class service I recieved from Rory Carson, throughout the process of purchasing my two properties, he made this very stress free, efficient and streamline and communication was very easy and clear throughout.
Would highly recommend you as Solicitors and when/if the time comes to sell, I’d happily use again as my acting solicitors.
It has been a pleasure dealing with your department. It will forever be in our memories as it was our sons first home.
Aidan has acted for us in two house sales, and in a house purchase. He was knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly. Two of the transactions proved more complicated than we had expected, because of issues with the buyers’ funds. In each case Aidan was enormously reassuring. He understood the situation and was able to advise us on the implications. Aidan kept in touch with the buyers’ lawyers and was always able to update us on progress. Both sales went through, but the path to the sale would have been far more stressful without Aidan’s calming and erudite involvement. We will have no hesitation in asking him to act for us again should the occasion arise.
We found Gemma McClelland very professional, friendly and helpful regarding the sale of our house. She responded promptly and clearly to any queries and issues that arose. I can thoroughly recommend MacLeod and MacCallum.
Thank you for the great service , you certainly made it a stress free process.
We found Gemma and Emily’s work not only professional as one would naturally expect in a company of Macleod and MacCallum’s stature, but also helpful in clarifying issues which we found perplexing at the time,not having the required legal nous ourselves.
I would just like to say a massive thank you for all your hard work throughout the course of my personal injury claim.
Thank you so much for your attention. I really appreciate the updates!
Macleod & MacCallum were friendly, professional and made the purchase of my new home easy and straightforward from start to finish. A great team and I would highly recommend them to anyone buying a new home or property.
As a previous tenant I just wanted to wish you many congratulations on your award. You do a terrific job, and certainly my experience with you all was nothing was ever a problem.
Alice, I would like to express my thanks to Gemma and yourself for your professional and helpful advice and administration of this sale. My thanks also go to Janette Dillon for her expertise and work done on my behalf earlier in the year.
Thanks so much for everything over the past 2 months. You made all the processes and jargon so easy to understand, and were always so quick to get back to us. As first time buyers it was a daunting process and you helped ease our anxieties. We appreciate everything you have done for us and would recommend yourself and Mac & Mac to anyone!
I would like to take this opportunity to place on record my thanks and satisfaction with your ongoing work as to the purchase of my property. The process was not as simple as it should have been, but due to your diligence and professionalism throughout the past twelve months we persevered and concluded the sale. Without your support and guidance I would have struggled to have controlled my emotions as to the continued obstacles that were presented to us.
We have always received excellent service from Sarah-Anne and the team. They have acted on our behalf with regard to my mother in law’s house for over 6 years now. They have worked efficiently and dealt with any issues very promptly. Feel we can ring at any time and speak to any member of the team and they are all aware of the situation. Great reassurance as we are based hundreds of miles away. Teamwork and communication is excellent, would thoroughly recommend them!
Lindsay, I just wanted to thank you for your work in helping us to secure our new property.
Your professionalism, prompt responses, sound advice and attention to detail has been fantastic.
Compared to dealings over the years with others, your service has been a breath of fresh air and we will have no hesitation in recommending you and your company to others.
Absolutely fantastic service, great communication. Just a great job all round. Thank you!
I would like to express my sincere appreciation for you and your firm, for the professional, courteous and swift service. All matters were explained fully, also allowing for additional information to be made available at my request. I would highly recommend using Lindsay and her team to buy your property.
Lindsay, I have been very satisfied by the work carried out on my behalf by the team at Macleod and MacCallum. The property was sold much quicker than I anticipated and I was kept up to date with the status throughout. I found Macleod and MacCallum to be extremely professional, flexible and friendly and I would definitely use them in the future and recommend others to do the same.
I am delighted that I opted to sell through Macleod & MacCallum. From my first meeting with Janette to my dealings with Aidan, I have felt in safe hands. Everything has been handled smoothly and efficiently but with the all important personal touch which I appreciate. I hope my own association with the property market is now at an end but I would be more than happy to recommend Macleod & MacCallum to anyone looking to buy or sell property in the Highlands.
Lindsay, Thank you very much for acting for me in respect of this transaction which has proceeded very smoothly and rapidly. I am very pleased with the service I have received both from you and from Bev Birch in your Property Department.
Lindsay, I found you very efficient in all aspects of the purchase of my home and ready to answer all of my questions.
It was quite a quick process and I would recommend you to others about to buy or sell their property.
I would also like to mention Sarah-Anne Gow from the residential lettings department who in the past provided me with a great service.
We wish to thank all the Macleod and MacCallum personnel who assisted with the purchase of my new property. We would also like to once again pass on our thanks and gratitude to our solicitor Alison Martin who has dealt with all of our property sales throughout the last 25 years or so. Once again Alison has proved her weight in gold, keeping us informed every step of the way with the conveyancing with the sale of the property. She is a true asset to any purchaser or seller wishing to utilize her services.
Rory, In the last few months I have sold and then bought another property. Both experiences have been efficient and stress free. All correspondence was clear and timely with queries being answered very quickly. I did not realise conveyancing could be such a simple process.
I am extremely grateful for very honest and thorough advice received from Graham, and finally, a massive thanks to Peter for all his help and correspondence and to Aidan who timeously concluded the sale. Thank you.
Aidan was appointed our conveyancing solicitor when acquiring a plot of land recently. Aidan was professional throughout the appointment and was extremely responsive and informed when replying to emails both from ourselves and the other party. Aidan assisted in navigating several little hurdles along the way and remained patient with matters that were out of our control ensuring we were able to complete in a timely manner in the end. His work and that of the wider team at Macleod & MacCallum was very much appreciated.
I would like to sincerely thank you for your personal attention to my matters. You have been a real pleasure to deal with. Your promptness in replying to my correspondence and your perseverance in getting matters moving has meant that I have felt confident that I was being well looked after. If there was a “gold star” award for solicitors then I would willingly nominate you for that award.
Keeping us updated every step of the way, ensuring we fully understand in detail every aspect of our home purchase and contracts and responding so quickly to our emails has made it an absolute pleasure in purchasing our country-side holiday home. But most incredible to me was your willingness to help us in bringing our date of completion – forward twice from the original date – even though all our documents had already been signed. I will definitely use your services going forward – thank you!
I was very impressed with the service I received from Macleod & MacCallum enabling me to sell my property in Inverness, recently. The estate agent, Emily, was very courteous, always prompt, and helpful in her dealings with me, and managed to secure a buyer in a very short period of time. I was kept fully informed of all the viewings and their feedback, and when a buyer was secured, I was handed over to one of the company’s in-house solicitors, which made things very straightforward. The solicitor, Lindsay, was just as efficient and courteous in her dealings, working with me at each stage to provide the necessary information to complete the transaction in a very short space of time. Overall the whole process was very painless and has, by far, been the easiest house sale I have had to make. I would have no hesitation in using Macleod & MacCallum again in the future. They were competitive in their pricing and I found them to be a trustworthy company who I would thoroughly recommend.
I am happy to say that my experience with yourselves personally and the level of customer service offered by Macleod & MacCallum overall, has in all respects been excellent and I would have no hesitation in recommending your firm to others
After working with several property management companies as we looked to rent in Inverness, my husband and I found the model of Macleod & MacCallum to be exemplary. We appreciate the direct line of contact between us, the agent, and the landlord throughout the entire process. In all of our other viewings, we were merely a number then passed along to the main office. The M&M method is so much more personable. Karen is incredibly professional and simply a delight to work with. We have nothing but good things to say about her and the Lettings Team. If you are a landlord looking for a property management group or a renter looking for a place to live, we can’t recommend M&M enough!
Very professional company to deal with. Used them for house sale recently. All staff very approachable and helpful. Communication was good and everything well explained. Special thanks to Lindsay Bishop and Bev for enabling a smooth and quick sale.
This is my first experience of being a landlord and I must say that the service you provide is better than I could ever have expected. From the moment we first met you have been professional, meticulous, and helpful. As an absent landlord I couldn’t be happier that the flat is being so well taken care of.
