Great support to us in buying our first home.The best thing was the efficiency of James’ service, he was always at the end of the phone for us and was so easy to talk too and we always felt comfortable asking any questions we had. James kept the process moving as he was in constant contact with our builder’s solicitor.

The speed of the transaction, coupled with the transparency of the proceedings I found excellent.

David, First-Time Buyer, Limerick

The remote meetings and flexibility to meet in the evenings and weekends suited us perfectly and meant we didn’t have to take any time off work to meet James which was fantastic as doing house viewings and bank visits had already meant we had to do a lot of moving work meetings around.Also, as the whole process can be overwhelming, I felt like James did a good job of gradually giving us information and things to sign – we were never landed with everything in one go so it felt like we were learning and progressing at a reasonable rate that we could absorb.We were extremely happy with the service we received from James. Buying a house is stressful and it felt like James made the experience as gradual and pain-free as possible.

Sarah-Jane & Enda, First-Time Buyers, Dublin

Shanahan O’Sullivan Legal were a pleasure to deal with. James kept us up to date regularly and he communicated every step of the sales process very well.

Noel, First-Time Buyer, Co. Clare

It was a fantastic experience to work with the solicitors at SOS Legal. We are moving back home to Ireland from abroad, and they facilitated everything needed to purchase a home for us to live in before we moved. This included doing the initial outreach to the owner’s solicitor, setting up a time for us to see it in person, and of course processing all the paperwork needed to close the deal out quickly and at a price that we were happy with. Their communication was top notch, as they responded to every email same day, and usually in the same hour. We were in the loop on everything, and always felt confident we knew where in the process we were, even though we were still abroad. I cannot recommend them highly enough.

Shane

We used SOS Legal to purchase our first home. Found Gary and team provided a very efficient and thorough legal service. The communication with SOS Legal was very convenient and the advice and information about the different stages was very good and helpful. Would definitely recommend to anyone.

Kirsten

SOS Legal had been referred to us by a property agency when doing house hunting in Clare. And that was almost everything we had to think about, after finding the perfect house. Every cost which would come our way had been explained and listed which made the calculations much easier. A check-list with all necessary and recommended steps for us had been prepared with recommended contacts. Very flexible service, which minimized the need for us to take time off at work. Simply a first class customer service! Just after buying the house, SOS Legal also handled our will with the same friendly and professional service. We can only highly recommend SOS Legal to everyone.

Dirk

James was excellent to deal with all throughout our house purchase journey. Although we were based in Dublin, this did not impact our experience with James. He was happy to answer any calls, emails, WhatsApps, video conferences during the day, evenings and weekends. When it came to signing our documents, James drove to Dublin to assist us in the process. I would wholeheartedly recommend James to anyone looking for a solicitor when purchasing a house.

Cathal

It was an absolute pleasure to deal with James at SOS Legal during our recent home purchase. He was fantastic at not just keeping us up to date with all developments, but also in pursuing our best interests throughout the whole process. Everything was done in a timely manner.

Katie

First time buyer in Ireland, Shanahan O’Sullivan recommended to us as people who get things done. And they did. From the initial contact with James, we felt we were in safe, professional hands.

It was, despite the prevailing restrictions, a very quick, smooth and stress-free journey, entirely down to the level of care, advice and quality of service James provided. It was a pleasure to deal with him and SOS and we are really grateful. Highly recommend.

My wife and I recently retired to Ireland and wished to purchase a house. We had been told some fairly horrific stories around the purchasing process in Ireland. The time from making an offer to receiving keys to the house was 57 days, in total contradiction to the stories we had heard. Part of this period was during the lock down.

We would not hesitate to recommend SOS to prospective buyers or sellers as they were efficient and courteous at all times. Many thanks Gary.
