I would recommend Hart Reade as we were very satisfied with your service

Staying with Hart Reade for many, many years says it all! Will probably be using them again later in the year with no hesitation. Thank you.

It was a straightforward conveyancing and all matters were dealt with promptly and efficiently.

We have been involved with Hart Reade before in relation to our late aunt’s PoA and Will and experienced first class service so that is what we expected for this conveyance. We were not disappointed. If only we didn't live two and a half hours drive away we would be back. Many thanks.

I could not have been more delighted with the service I received from Hart Reade in processing the sale of my previous home and the purchase of my new one. Helen kept me informed and up-to-date at all times and consistently ensured that all negotiations with purchasers, sellers and Estate Agents were conducted efficiently and courteously. I would highly recommend your company to any of my friends and family, and intend to use you for any future legal work I may require in the future.

Helen dealt very efficiently and professionally with our move to Eastbourne and we appreciated her kindness, in particular keeping us up to date as matters progressed. Well done Helen.

Helen was very helpful to me and explained every step to me

I have used Hart Reade for many years and cannot fault them – thank you so much

On the occasions when we spoke, she was always approachable, helpful and friendly.
I would definitely recommend her services to friends.

I was very favourably impressed by the service provided by Helen Hatcher. She was always easily contactable by email and replied to any queries within a very short space of time.

Friendly and efficient service, would be happy to use again.

Helen gave a great service, she is an asset to your company. Thank you.

Helen Hatcher was particularly helpful.

Selling a house during an already very stressful time in your life is not easy, but Helen ensured the process ran smoothly and as quickly as possible.  Thank you to Helen, Andrew and the team for all your work on this.

Despite the lockdown restrictions everything proceeded simply and safely.

Helen Hatcher was very efficient, and very knowledgeable, and kept us regularly informed of progress with the house sale, offering advice and guidance at each stage of the process. In addition, when an unexpected problem occurred, Andrew Pluck quickly got to the heart of the matter and offered astute advice on the best way to resolve it.

We found Helen very approachable and reassuring and having used her services in two separate cases, would recommend to others without hesitation.

We felt very well informed throughout, thank you for all your ongoing help and support.  It was a challenging time for everyone towards the end of the conveyancing process due to the unanticipated situation affecting the world, but your services remained professional and prompt in ensuring our sale/purchase was completed.

Helen dealt with our sale and purchase in a professional and prompt manner.  At times difficult situations arose and she supported us well.

A wonderful service from start to finish.  Everything was handled calmly, promptly and professionally.  When the next property opportunity arises you’ll be my first call – I would recommend you in a heartbeat.  Thanks for everything!
