Customer Testimonials

They say buying a house is the most stressful time of your life...I can hand on heart say this was so not the case. The team at Darlingtons made the whole process hassle free. My Brother in Law was the one who recommended Darlingtons and they were as he described. You just literally leave them to it. We used James Swede and Tina Cunningham to help us with our house purchase. My husband and I were First Time Buyers so genuinely had no clue what to expect but Tina really made us feel at ease and was always on hand whenever we needed her. I can honestly say I would highly recommend Darlingtons for anyone looking for a professional set of individuals to handle your affairs with the utmost perfection. I would definitely use them in the future without any hesitation. Thank you Tina & James and the whole Team at Darlingtons.

Great service experience during my flat purchase, thorough, no stalling and good value for money. Nichola Bentley was particularly impressive, I would definitely recommend her! Thank you Nichola!

I dealt with Daniel Blake who was not only very professional but very friendly and made the whole situation very straightforward. He explained everything in detail and went the extra mile to achieve more than I had anticipated.

Would definitely recommend or use again.

Nichola Bentley at Darlingtons Solicitors has deal with the conveyancing aspects of three properties for us over the past five years. Prior to appointing Nichola we used to jump from solicitor to solicitor never quite happy with the service. Nichola is super professional, responsive and has a keen eye for detail. Highly recommended.

Tina has been outstanding when I was selling my property and now having been extremely helpful and efficient in my forthcoming purchase, she has always shown me as this has been an extremely stressful time that everything will be ok and she really helped me calm down and be positive that everything will be fine. I have no hesitation if I was to need a solicitor in the future Tina @ Darlingtons would be my number one choice.

Darlingtons were outstanding with regards to the sale of my property. Tina Cunningham was an utter delight from beginning to end. She was not only lovely, but was organised, diligent and efficient. She explained everything to me comprehensively and clearly, all the paperwork was dealt with quickly, and she worked extensively with the other party's solicitors to achieve completion in just over a month. She was only ever a phone call or an email away, she always made time for me, and I felt valued as a client.

Tina had the misfortune to deal with my former freeholder. While I was the leaseholder I always dreaded having to deal with them for their unparalleled incompetence. Issues arose which slowed down the sale, but Tina was incredible. In one afternoon she managed to extract information and paperwork from them which I had failed to precure in 18 months.

If you are looking for excelence, then Darlingtons must be your choice of solicitor.

I approached Darlingtons feeling very anxious about the position I found myself in. Daniel couldn’t have dealt with matters better. He gave me clear information, all of which was accurate in each detail. He then dealt with a very tricky company on my behalf (including spending lots of time chasing down the relevant people to talk to) and resolved the issue. This was a time sensitive matter and Daniel was expedient in all aspects of the case. He replied to any questions I had promptly which was very reassuring to me at a stressful time. I have no qualms at all in recommending him and Darlingtons

Recommended to me by another solicitor who knew of their good reputation. Very prompt initial response from James Swede (I had given up on another company who were inefficient). Excellent follow up from Nichola Bentley, very professional.

Dr Mohamed Khamis, client of Ben Jones, explains why he rates Ben highly as a #lawyer.

Why tactics and strategy are so important in legal disputes

A common mistake is to assume litigation matters usually go to trial - 80% don't. This means tactics and strategy are key to getting the best available result, which is not the same as the ideal result in most cases.


Company articles legal advice

The importance of corporate articles of association both on formation and in conjunction with shareholder agreements or other important milestones and changes in your company development.
