We found it very refreshing that Chris Lindley took the time to visit us at the farm and introduce himself personally and get a feel of the place and our history there. Through the whole process either himself or his colleague Zoe Irving answered our queries promptly and clearly, and this was very reassuring for us. They also liaised with our accountant and our land agent on our behalf and we were delighted with their service.
