The updates are regular by email, the dashboard is thorough, the documentation is so easy to load and access and when you do need to speak to them you can get them on the phone and they explain things properly. All that and they are a fantastic price, unbelievable to me that the service is provided at such a low cost.

I had tried other conveyancers but was not very impressed. Like everyone the internet was next and Juno came up. Checked the reviews and they were positive. So I used them for the sale of my house. I am very impressed with them and the dashboard they use. They kept me up to date with the total experience. Very reasonably priced.

We were a bit nervous about who to use but Juno made everything so easy with their Dashboard that tells you exactly where you are in the process, meaning you never have to chase them for an update. All the actions they had to take were taken within 24h, which was great as we were keen to complete the sale fast.
