We chose Martin Tolhurst because of the mostly positive reviews and we were so glad we did. Our solicitor, Gemma Nie, was faultless. She represented us professionally, efficiently, was super friendly and always picked up the phone if we needed to speak with her. Our sales agent's communication was extremely poor, so we were incredibly thankful for Gemma's prompt and concise responses. It often felt like I'd barely clicked 'send' and her email response would come through. 9 weeks from start to finish selling our house and it would have been way more had she not been as on the ball as she was. Will highly recommend and use again without doubt!

If anyone is looking for a firm of solicitors, may I strongly recommend Martin Tolhurst , and a fantastic solicitor mr Giles Dobson. After a long struggle with my ex partner, he gave me hope and very good advice, ok it cost me a lot, but in the end it was worth every penny, and I have absolutely no regret in recommending the company.
Good luck. And a massive thank you to this company, and mr Dobson.

I chose Martin Tolhurst Solicitors team in Sittingbourne as they are a local business and I have heard good things from friends and family in the past.
The selling of my property felt like an organized process we did have delays from the buyers solicitors but this happens when buying/selling a property.
My conveyancer was Lucy Rodrigues who we found very responsive, competent and professional. I would recommend Lucy Rodrigues and the team at Martin Tolhurst Sittingbourne.

Customer Testimonials

Just exchanged on an investment property. 6.5 weeks from sales memos, awesome result by Sam Newton and the team!!! Thank you so much and wouldn’t use anyone else!!!


Thank you Gez, Giles and team for representing us. And for successfully claiming back an unpaid invoice from a very difficult customer including our costs. A long battle but the truth prevailed with your expert knowledge.


Considering our sale went from start to finish in about 8 weeks, I can not fault them! Laura Stevens and Lindsey, as well as the rest of the team, were very professional and quick. I found them very approachable, they were always there to answer my calls or they would return the calls if they were busy. They were quick at sending out all documentation and we were kept informed through the whole process. Their legal advice was sound and reliable, and I would not hesitate to return to them as a customer in the future. I'd like to take this opportunity to say a big Thank You to Laura and her team!
Highly recommended!


Martin Tolhurst (specifically Samantha Newton) has represented us in the sale of our house and the purchase of our new home. They are well priced I have been thoroughly impressed with Samantha and her team - helpful, diligent, efficient and responsive. I have been through this process a number of times before and compared to our previous solicitors, Samantha comes out on top by a significant margin. We will definitely employ Martin Tolhurst again should the need arise. Thank you!


I can not thank the Medway office enough for all their help with our house sale and new purchase. It was all handled very efficiently. If we had any questions Nichola was always on hand at the end of the phone or email. When we rang to talk to Lesley she had time to speak to us, in the past I have struggled to speak to the solicitor and felt they are too busy to talk to us direct that was not the case with Lesley. Our sale went through a lot quicker than expected and that's down the hard work from the team at Martin Tolhurst. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them. Thank you for everything!
