Our client testimonials

“Excellent friendly professional service. We have been kept informed of any development. Any queries we have had, have been answered promptly. Would definitely recommend them. Javeria especially has been great.”
Trustpilot Client, 2024
“You have a great team of people from yourselves and reception staff , friendly, helpful, and we never hesitate on using SE-Solicitors in the future if needed. Thank you helping me finalise my late father’s property.”
Client, 2024
“Joshua Kingston was just a treasure. He incredibly cared about our purchase like it was his own one. Joshua also has a very positive personality, can-do attitude. He explained with the simplest words what has to be done legally to purchase a house but also why certain things are in place. He is a treasure. Debbie Bates did an incredibly good job too. Replying, raising questions and writing the report so fast that she must have worked out of her hours I believe!”
Client, 2024
“A professional, efficient and friendly service. Timely and accurate communications throughout for our house sale, plus a competitive fee and no unexpected surprises. If you’re looking for a reliable property solicitor, then I’d recommend the team at SE-Solicitors.”
Google Review, Client 2024
“Mariam and Milda went above and beyond to help with all of the legal side of our move. They always answered the phone or emails should we have had any questions, and always kept us updated throughout the whole process. I had a few issues with a management company on providing paper work, but they sat on the phone for hours to them to get this sorted for me. This just shows how good their service is! I would highly recommend SE-Solicitors to everyone. And would use them again. Thank you again Mariam and Milda, we are over the moon!”
Sam, Trustpilot 2023

I was informed on details that impacted decision making tremendously. Thank you so much for the the amazing service. I will definitely use you again.”
Client, Google Review 2023
“Having used the Brackley branch of SE-Solicitors for the sale of my house I was more than keen to use them for purchase of my new property a few months later. Terena has been incredibly efficient and kept me fully informed throughout. I’d happily recommend her to anyone looking for conveyancing.”
Miss S (Cheltenham), Gloucestershire
“I purchased a plot of land for a self-build property in the North-East. Finding a firm for conveyancing was tricky. Many firms said they could, but I soon learned they didn’t have the competency. SE-Solicitors came to the rescue, and were knowledgeable about such transactions. At every step of the way, Karen provided precise instructions and communication was open. She followed up in a timely manner to keep things moving. SE-Solicitors were patient as the transaction took longer than expected due to the purchase being tied to approved planning permission. Despite the complexity, I couldn’t have asked for a more painless process. For me, SE-Solicitors was a safe pair of hands.”
