Hi Garth

Thank you very much for informing us about the registration of our Antenuptial Contract.

It was such a pleasure using your services.


Hi Garth,

Many thanks indeed for all your assistance, guidance and help dealing with the sale of my flat (2 Hurlingham).

The manner in which the sale and conveyancing thereof, regular weekly report of updates and progress made, was handled, indeed proved that Burne and Burne was the right choice for me.

Buliding trust and relationships with fellow BNI member Terry Sharp from Home Properties and yourself, has proven BNI works.
