    From the moment we rung Versus Law and spoke to the receptionist on the phone to the moment we completed on our first home, Versus Law were excellent. Our solicitor was Tom and not only did he keep us updated every step of the way but he was very professional, efficient, offered valuable advice and made the process of buying a house stress free. We couldn’t recommend Versus Law enough and we just wanted to say a huge thank you to Tom and the team. Joe and Kara

    The service and advise that we received from Versuslaw was exceptional.

Thanks again to Nicola, Nick and Francine

  • H Cooper

    We would highly recommend Versus law, especially Nick Wintrip (selling) and Nicola Nolan (buying). They both kept us up to date throughout the whole process. They were easy to get hold of and were very prompt to answer any questions/email. We would have no hesitation in recommending Versus law for conveyancing.

    Excellent service from start to finish from Nicola and Natalie! Super responsive to emails and all my questions as a first time single buyer. Natalie and Nicola make a great team and are so approachable. Definitely recommend them for property related legal services.

  • Frankie

    Really happy with my experience using versus law, from start to finish they put my mind at ease as I wasn’t buying a house in the normal way, it was through a family divorce and there were time scales and dead lines to meet, versus law managed to conker my mortgage and speed things up to avoid any extra costs, nicola was always there to ease my mind when I had any concerns as things do get stressful whilst purchasing a property, the ladies on the reception we also a delight and couldn’t do more to make you feel comfortable in any situation, if you are thinking of using versus law to assist you through your mortgage then look no further as these guys couldn’t have done more for me, I couldn’t have been happier with my experience

  • Matt W

    Nicola Nolan’s conveyancing service has always been excellent, I have used them several times in the last 5 years. In particular for my business I have found their relationship and understanding of Paragon Bank to be very useful. I would highly recommend.

  • Kay

    Excellent decision to go with Versus Law! Nick Wintrip handled the very stressful job of our house sale with professionalism, calmness and a good sense of humour. We did everything via email, phone and post, and he was always quick in responding and keeping me updated every step of the way. Very competitively priced too. I would highly recommend Versus Law without the slightest hesitation.

  • O Li

    Thomas Reid dealt with the sale and purchase of our properties. He was a pleasure to work with – very quick to respond to queries and very efficient in his work. As a result, the process went very smoothly with minimal delays. I would highly recommend competitively priced Versus Law and especially the professionalism of Thomas Reid.

    Fantastic experience with Natalie and her colleagues. Email updates throughout the home buying process, estimates of how long it would take to get her work completed and local knowledge which speeded up the process. 100% recommended.

  • R Napier

  • Wetherill

    What an outstanding team they turned my purchase around within the set time frame and very professional at all times.
    They went above and beyond reassured myself throughout the process.
    As being a first time buyer I felt this was most important I would recommend them highly.

  • Nasir

    Versus Law dealt with my house sale from start to finish in a most professional manner. A friendly, professional, competent team who get the job done within the time parameters. I highly recommend this firm.

  • Colin and Yvonne

    Absolutely brilliant service as always.
    This is the third time using Versuslaw and they never fail to impress. Natalie and Nicola are real diamonds and you really get the sense that they actually care about you.

    We actually live in London, but continued to use them for our London property because of our previous experience with them.
    Thank you guys, would highly recommend you to anyone.

  • B Man

    Excellent service!!! We are really happy with the service VersusLaw provided to us. Being first time buyer, we dint have much idea about the whole process and had lots of questions. They have given proper and clear response on time to everything we have requested. For us, one of the property got cancelled in between the process because the owner decided to not to sell that property few days after accepting our offer. Though there were searches and procedures done already for that property VersusLaw did not ask Fee for that purchase as they understood the difficult situation we were in. When we found our next property, we had no doubt whom to contact. We are really happy and totally satisfied by the service Nicola, Natalie and their team offered. We will highly recommend your service to anyone,

  • Ross Grant

    Today I have completed on the purchase of my very first apartment, and it just wouldn’t have been possible without the INCREDIBLE knowledge, guidance and GENUINE care of Nicola, Natalie, and the entire Versus Law team.

    This purchase was far from straightforward, with lots of potential pitfalls – all navigated with professionalism, patience and an impeccable attention to detail by Nicola.

    Nic went well above and beyond the call of duty to look into some extremely complex accounts and repair budgets to the apartment block in question – something I would have completely overlooked.

    As a result, with her guidance, I managed to negotiate a £2,000 reduction in asking price – something I’m sure other solicitors would have let slip through the net.

    That’s a genuine £2000 saving – a lot of money for a first-time buyer.

    You get a real sense that these guys actually CARE – they make you feel more like a friend, than a client – and don’t leave a stone unturned when it comes to conveyancing. If there is anything to uncover on a property, trust me, Nicola will find it!

    In essence, Versus Law made what could have been a rather stressful situation, easy and straightforward.

    Communications and response times were brilliant, with daily updates coming via phone and email – and I never felt rushed by anyone when I had queries.

    I honestly cannot recommend Versus Law enough.

    I’m going to pick up the keys to my apartment now – and won’t be using anyone other than these guys for all future property purchases/ sales.

    THANK YOU SO MUCH Versus Law – I’ll be raising a glass of champagne to you all at the housewarming! 🙂

  • CW

    Great service provided by Nicola and her team.
    Always communicating with updates for the completion of my property.
    Would highly recommend

  • Jackie

    I used Versus Law to buy my first house. Had no idea how it worked but I must say that the conveyancing team held my hand all the way through. On the day of completion there was a delay and they stayed in office late to ensure it went through so I wasn’t waiting over the weekend. It was an absolute pleasure to deal with Versus Law and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them. It was nice to speak to people who I felt cared for me and put my interests first at all times. Thank you so much for your help

  • Andy

    Versus were great to deal with when they provided the conveyancing for my house purchase. I was able to complete the process without needing to physically travel to their offices and my solicitor was always available for any questions when I was completing all the paperwork. Everyone was very friendly to speak to.

  • T Baguley

    Fantastic conveyancing service from Nicola and Natalie, they kept on top of everything from start to finish and were always available whenever we had questions. I’d be happy to recommend them to anyone.

  • David JC

    Very impressed with every aspect of Versus Law, from service they provide to the attitude of the staff. Always called back when they said they would and had a laugh with them too. Will definately use again (if I need to).

  • Mrs Morris

    I would recommend Versus Law to anyone, particularly Nick Wintrip, who looked after us extremely well. They are very efficient and communicated with us fully at all times. We were able to contact them by phone and e mail and did not need to rely on letter going back and forth. Nick is really friendly too and put us at ease throughout the end to end sales process. Thank you.

  • Tanita

    Nicola and Natalie did a wonderful job. They were friendly and patient. Answered my many many questions and got the job done very efficiently. I am highly impressed and would definitely recommend them.

If a family member or friend provided care, then you can claim an hourly rate on their behalf depending on the care provided.

We and a medical expert will assess your needs and be able to recommend the possible treatments to consider.

In order to assess whether you can make a claim, the accident circumstances will need to be considered and you must have suffered a loss as a direct result of the accident.

Please feel free to make a no obligation free consultation with our claims team who will be able to advise you best without any pressure.

To start the claim we will require your details and details of the accident, i.e. circumstances, defendant vehicle details and injury details.

If 18 years and above you have 3 years to make a personal injury claim.Minors under 18 years of age have until their 21st Birthday to make a claim.For non injury related claims, you have 6 years to make a claim, i.e. vehicle damage, hire, loss of earnings etc.

We recommend you present the claim early as this will mean a quicker settlement for you. The longer you leave in making the claim does not mean you cannot claim but the evidence is best presented when its fresh.

It is very straightforward. We obtain the accident details from you over the phone and submit the claim to the insurers on an online Claim Portal. You will be required to agree to our terms of instructions which can be sent in the post or by email. The insurers will have 15 working days to respond and provide a position on the case. If liability is admitted then the claim process will be straightforward and should settle relatively quickly depending on what you are claiming for.

This will depend on various factors in the case, i.e. if liability is admitted, disputed, what you are claiming. Each case is unique and an estimate cannot be given of settlement without the facts of the case. We will try our upmost to settle the claim as quickly as possible and on the best terms.

Generally, straightforward claims can settle in under 6 months.

This will depend on the nature of your injuries and the period of injury suffered. If your injury was minor then we may be able to request an offer from the insurers without the need for a medical examination but this will have to be assessed on a case by case basis.

If your injuries are ongoing or were more than of a minor nature then we will always recommend you see a medical expert to assess your injuries. The expert examination will be arranged locally to you, with a time convenient for you and we will always claim your reasonable travel expenses. The examination is very straightforward and can take between 15-20 minutes.

Even if you have recovered from your injuries, a medical examination may be required to assess what injuries you suffered from medical experts perspective.

You will not need to attend our offices unless you wish to do so. We can take instructions over the phone, by letter or email. You are entitled to use any solicitor and are not restricted to local solicitors.

This will depend on the facts of the case and the losses suffered.

Injury claims can vary significantly as all injuries are not the same. A simple whiplash claim with a recovery of 6 months can attract an award between £2000 – £2500 and if the injury is over 12 months then the claim could be worth over £4000 but this will depend on various factors.

Children under the age of 18 can make a claim as long as they suffered physical injury. If there is no physical injury then the non physical injury has to be a recognised psychological injury, i.e. depression, PTSD etc.

Even if the physical injury is minor, we will always recommend a claim is made as this will be in the best interests of the child.

For a child to claim, a litigation friend (an adult, I.e. parent) will need to act on behalf of the child.

Yes you can as long as the second accident either made the original injuries worse or there were different injuries in the second accident.

If you require treatment, such as physiotherapy or CBT for psychological injury, chiropractor etc then we can arrange the treatment for you to assist your recovery.

The treatment provided to you will be paid for by the Defendant insurers therefore you will not need to worry about the cost.

If an insurance company contacts you direct or any other company other than us wanting to discuss your claim then please pass them our details and hang up.

Insurers try to contact clients direct and attempt to severely under settle claims in the hope a client will be tempted with the offer.

We will make sure your compensation reflects the level of damage you have suffered and based on past experiences, the offer made by the insurers is ALWAYS beaten significantly by us when a client takes our advice.

In the case of a Road Traffic Accident; when making a claim against another driver, in most cases, they will be insured and we would make a claim against their insurers. However, a significant amount of drivers are uninsured or cannot be traced and in this instance, we would make a claim to the Motors Insurance Bureau (MIB). The MIB was set up to compensate victims of untraced and uninsured drivers. So don’t let this hold you back from making a claim.

If an accident happens and the vehicle had been stolen at the time of the collision, then you can still claim for your losses.

The possible situations are as follows:

  1. Vehicle is stolen, but it was insured, the culprit not found = MIB UNTRACED
  2. Vehicle is stolen, but it was insured, the culprit found = insurance company will deal with the claim
  3. Vehicle stolen, not insured, the culprit found = MIB UNINSURED

Not wearing a seat belt, does not mean you are not able to claim.

You are still entitled to make a claim but the insurers may make a reduction to your damages ranging from 15-25% depending on the level of injury suffered and the circumstances of the claim.

In certain cases, you will get both parties disputing liability. In this instance, Versus Law will carry out an in-depth investigation to determine who is at fault. If necessary we will contact any witnesses to support your claim if we believe you are not responsible. Even if the accident was PARTLY your fault, then don’t worry, you may still have a claim

Initially a claim can be submitted against the other driver if it is not known who is at fault.

If the other driver’s insurance company does not deal with the claim, then on a without prejudice basis a passengers claim can be submitted against the driver of the vehicle where the passenger was sat.

It is not necessary to blame the driver for the vehicle for the accident but a claim can be submitted to the driver’s insurance company to ask them to deal with the claim on a without prejudice basis (without blame) as you were the innocent passenger.

The passengers can have their claim dealt with even if fault cannot be established between the two vehicles as the passenger was the innocent party.

Not all accidents are straightforward and when another driver is at fault then a claim would be made against that person and his or her insurers.

One of the biggest misconceptions is that when the passengers in a vehicle are involved in an accident, the passengers cannot make a claim against their driver. This is not correct and the fact of the matter is that passengers can make a claim against their driver as they were the innocent party; their claim should be dealt in full.

Many people are understandably are hesitant in claiming against their driver, especially if the person is a friend or family, but the main thing to keep in mind is that the insurance company of the driver will deal with the claim in full.

You are technically claiming against the driver but it is the insurance company who pay out the damages.

If you have suffered injury and or losses as a result of an accident then we will always advise you to make a claim as that is your legal right.

When an accident happens, it is likely the driver the vehicle will have reported the accident to his insurance company. The minute the accident is reported, the insurance of the driver will be affect as having a claim registered against the policy.

Once a claim is registered against the policy it generally makes very little or no difference if the passengers make a claim against the drivers insurers especially if someone else has made a claim against the driver or even if the driver claims for his / her own damage.

We will always advise the passengers to make a claim for their losses as the drivers insurers will settle the claim in full.
