MM Xmas Completion Rush

Amy Stars in MM Xmas Rush!


As you might expect with one of Scotland’s largest conveyancing practices, every week brings with it the immense hustle and bustle of multiple completions. The week before Xmas has is own challenges particularly large volumes of new houses completing before the traditional builder year end. Xmas just passed proved to be typical with 158 transactions completing during the week.

The oncoming holiday season means that there is no room for error; juggling with finances from Help to Buy, Government ISA payments and mortgage lenders under a lot of seasonal pressure make for a roller coaster experience.

MM’s new build department is used to this year end pressure but there are always new challenges to endure. It was certainly a busy few weeks for Trainee Solicitor Amy Sullivan (pictured) who gamely dealt with all of the obstacles thrown at her. These included some particularly thorny legal problems which she dealt with such aplomb that clients were quick to shower her with compliments and in this case a beautiful bouquet of flowers.

But it wasn’t just praise from colleagues and clients. On a particularly difficult case the seasoned solicitor on the other side commented to Amy “You have done amazing here Amy. You should be proud. It is been learning experience for both of us but we will be better for it! Honestly, thank you!”

These experiences contribute to MM’s fantastic Google rating which as of 2 January was 4.8 from 582 reviews.
