Purchasing a Franchise

Purchasing a franchise gives you the opportunity to invest in and be part of a pre-established business. Typically, purchasing a franchise allows you to use the brand of a business and establish a profitable franchise.

Franchising part of your business?

Opting to franchise your business is not an easy decision to make, as whilst it can create many opportunities it can also pose substantial risks as you are ultimately agreeing to hand over autonomy of your brand.

I was extremely pleased with the service that Kerry provided in order to sell my mothers house. Good, prompt communication and all questions dealt with or answered as requested. Consequently I would recommend yours services to others.

Kerry and Carolyn were always friendly and professional and kept meet up to date every stage of the journey. Most of our communicating was online which was great as documents could be sent instantly and our conversations were in writing in case I needed to refer back to them later on. I cannot recommend them enough.

After almost a year of being messed about by potential buyers my house sale went through. I feel that both Kerry and Carolyn of Rotheras conveyancing team were patient and understanding of my situation and nothing seemed too much trouble. The actual conveyancing process seemed effortless on my part and when the actual final purchase of the property went through, they kept me informed of what was happening throughout all stages. I would certainly recommend Rotheras for any conveyancing required and only wished others were as professional and understanding in their approach.

The service was exceptional and Vicki went above and beyond to make the whole process a much less stressful process , especially buying through the Covid period.

Thank you so much to Emily and her team. We managed to buy a house within 6 weeks and connect the selling of our property together, saving a lot of stress, being a young family of 5 in a current pandemic. Professional and approachable with quick responses. Emily went above and beyond to help us get what we wanted!
