  • I would recommend this business

I would like to express, to you my, appreciation for the way Rebecca handled the sale of our property and the purchase of our new property.

There were several unexpected challenges during the proceedings due to our buyers total lack of consideration and we were working towards a tight schedule due to the lady we were purchasing from moving to a new build and already having a 2 week extension on her contracted completion date.

Rebecca kept on top of everything despite the unforeseen circumstances that kept arising and came up with contingency plans to ensure that the completion date could still be met. I believe that she did everything in her power to give us the best possible outcome in a worst case scenario situation.

She was prompt on returning my calls if she was not available when I rang and replied to any emails quickly and professionally. I was always kept up-to-date of the progress which allowed me to keep my seller and our estate agent notified. (Our sellers solicitor was not as good at returning calls and passing on updates even though Rebecca always communicated them to her).

Rebecca, I believe, orchestrated the communications between all parties ensuring that everything stayed on track. (Wards said that our buyers solicitor was hard to get hold of).

I really can not praise Rebecca enough for her professionalism. I truly believe that without Rebecca we would not have completed on time and we would have risked the sale purchase falling through. (Our seller would have had to take out a bridging loan if we did not complete on time and said that if that happened she would put the house back on the market and wait for a offer of the full asking price). She really is, I believe, a credit to Martin Tolhurst.

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!

Customer Testimonials

Used Martin Tolhurst through Ward & Partners recommendation process, very smooth transition making the whole legal side of sale of property very easy. Abdul Mutallib handled everything mostly via email, calling when required. Professional, timely, and a great local firm with easy parking right outside, a bonus! They also offer many other services. Would recommend without hesitation


I wish I could give this solicitor's 10 stars. I used them to buy my first property. As a single mother, I was doing it all on my own, no help or guidance from older family who had gone through this process before, and Martin & Tolhurst made the process so smooth and easy. The member of staff who was working on my property was called Kerry and she answered every question in a timely matter, would phone me and explain anything about the house buying process in detail and was very patient with me when I didn't understand certain . There was even a point when my vendors were trying to pressure/bully me to exchange and complete on a date that I was not ready for, and Kerry stood her ground ( on my behalf) and did not let the pressure get to her and negotiated for a date that suited me. I would recommend this company to anyone, especially people living in London, as I do, there are so many solicitors in London ( Dodgy ones at that) who bend the truth and who are only interested in being paid rather than helping the customer understand. Everything can be done via post or email so there's no need for Londoners to drive to Kent. We need a solicitor throughout our lives and I plan to use Martin & Tolhurst for other needs that may require a solicitor especially as they charged me atleast £500 less than other solicitors I had looked into. Thank you Martin & Tolhurst again, I just can't thank you enough and specifically Kerry!


Having used Martin Tolhurst Solicitors for a personnel matter, I would highly recommend them, as my experience was very comforting with clear and precise advice. In particular, Nameeta Gujral handled matters very professionally in difficult times. I will always return to them regarding legal matters.


Thank you to everyone at the Ashford office of Martin Tolhurst for their expert advice in the purchase of our home. The quality of their legal paperwork and the surveys they obtained for us were so helpful in enabling us to purchase without concern. Completion has now taken place, all on schedule, and we are ready to enjoy our new life! Thank you.
