But you needn’t just take our word for it – here are just a few of the many testimonials our clients and referrers have sent us.

“As one of the leading and longest established firm of chartered surveyors specialising in leasehold reform, we have worked with Bonallack and Bishop on many occasions. The process is complex and a procedural minefield. Bonallack and Bishop certainly know the ropes and we have always found them knowledgeable and efficient and a joy to deal with”.

“Dale was very helpful with our lease extension and took time to clarify the  process with us over the phone and by email, and provided useful options for handling the garage that is part of the lease. Very happy with the service and highly recommended.”

Hing Lee

“I chose Bonallack & Bishop Solicitors to act for my lease extension. Dale was excellent throughout. He was clear on the process and timelines and when things were held up on the freeholders side he supported with chasing and keeping me up to date. Highly recommend!”

Kathryn Perry

“Bonallack & Bishop dealt with both our lease extension and subsequent house sale and purchase very efficiently, despite certain constraints and difficulties due to Covid19. We were very pleased with how Jake and John (respectively) communicated each stage and step and was always willing to take time to explain each process. We’d highly recommend them.”

Anna Darby

“An all-round very good experience with Bonallack & Bishop Solicitors related to a property lease extension. Both the solicitor and the para-legal associated with the extension were very attentive, responded to my questions promptly and kept me updated. In sum a very good level of professionalism for which I am grateful.”

I engaged Dale at Bishops Law to extend a lease on a property in London. Despite numerous delays from the freeholder, Dale was able to push the extension through and ensure everything was done correctly. Throughout the process Dale’s communication was excellent. I am based in Australia but working with Dale was very easy and straightforward. Will certainly be using Bonallack and Bishop again in the future should the need arise. Thanks!!

“I recently contacted Bonallack & Bishop on how to approach my lease extension. William Parsons got in touch and gave me very detailed information by e-mail, and also on the phone, on all possible avenues and the cost of each option. He undertook an initial lease report and also chased the other party to get in contact with us. So impressed with the service and professionalism of the firm that I have decided to leave my business with them. No doubt I’ll also use them in the future for other unrelated matters.”

Would encourage any group with a complex leasehold/freehold deal to use this solicitors. Had the boss Jen & her team including Jake look after us & the rates they charged were better than any other quote we had…….well done Bonallack & Bishop.”

Gillian Smith

“Niki  conducted the lease extension for my flat in a very professional and timely manner. I was extremely pleased with the service and personal attention that I received. This complicated matter was conducted to my entire satisfaction”

Pam Corfield

“ I have worked alongside Niki on numerous lease extensions and have been impressed by her efficiency, regular communication and knowledge of the subject.”

Stephen Higley, Smith Robinson Higley Ltd, Chartered Surveyors, Poole

Can I just say a big thank you for all of your help on the lease extension. You’ve been fantastic throughout. You are a credit to the profession.

Mr. S, Dorset

“Thank you Niki for taking the confusion and worry out of my recent lease extension/freehold purchase. You are a star and I would certainly recommend you to others”.

Ms H – Salisbury

“Mrs Adkins did an excellent job and I was pleased with the prompt and efficient way in which she handled the lease extension. She explained the law and procedure well, dealt with all queries and correspondence quickly and recommended a specialist surveyor who provided useful advice regarding the valuation of the flat. For work of this type I would have no hesitation in recommending her and the firm.”

John Duckworth

“I would thoroughly recommend that anyone needing to extend their lease should get specialist advice early on in the process. I can also thoroughly recommend the services of Niki Adkins in this regard as she is a true professional ”

Greg Baker

“We were really impressed with how quickly and smoothly you organised the lease extension and we were happy we chose you. No doubt I’ll need a solicitor in the future and I’ll definitely contact you again.”

Rachael T, London

“Niki has provided a professional, effiicent and above all clear and understandable service throughout my lease extension process. Every e-mail request was dealt with promptly and the clearness of her advice was without fault. I cannot praise Niki enough for her hard work during this matter as unfortunately we had quite a ‘difficult’ landlord to deal with. She is also very approachable and affable which comes across in her e-mail content.

I would highly recommend Niki to any of my friends and associates.”

Christine Woodroffe, London

“Throughout the lease extension negotiations you have been both charming and polite, despite the additional pressure imposed on you when unexpectedly having to take on a former colleague’s workload, and I know I speak on behalf of the whole family in thanking you for your efforts in achieving our goal of the lease extension and its registration with the Land Registry.”
