Customer Testimonials

I've bought two houses and sold one recently through Rothera Dowson. I cannot recommend highly enough. Jane Warren at beeston has overseen most of my family's buying and selling and she's always been extremely helpful and professional.
Kathryn Simpson at West Brigford helped my wife and I buy our new house and we had nothing but pushbacks and stalling from the seller's and their solicitors. Kathryn didn't take any of their mess and sped the process up no end.
Fees are very competitive and the job is always outstanding. Use them if you ever need assistance in buying or selling property.
A big thank you to the whole team.

Excellent advice, support and administration. Would recommend!

Needed help with keeping my licende after doing double the limit in a 30. Georgina geddes was the port of call and she was amazing through the whole process she explained everything very clearly and sorted everyting worth every penny

I used Rothera Sharp because i had totted up to 12 points. I need my licence for work. As i am 21 i felt that i really needed someone to back my case. They explained to the court the hardship argument. Through there work i was able to keep it and continue driving. I found that they are extremely professional, reasonably priced for the quality and friendly to talk to when speaking on the phone.
If i have any legal issues in the future i they will be the first point of call.

After the initial contact Elisabeth Halls visited our home to discuss the matter and look at evidence. After a discussion we decided to take the matter forward. She was completely professional in her dealings with us and explained all the possible options and outcomes. Throughout our experience she kept us fully informed of progress. I would definitely recommend Rother Sharp.

Me and my Fiancée have just bought our first home and Deborah Bowler at Rothera Sharp has been absolutely incredible from start to finish - you always hear horror stories about Solicitor's... however Deborah was professional, reliable and hugely efficient. Not only that but she is a lovely and friendly person and it has been an absolute pleasure dealing with her and her assistant Grace! There were no hidden fees / charges and everything was produced on time - with no hanging around and our completion day was fixed as planned. I cannot recommend her or Rothera Sharp enough!!! Thank you so much :)!

We have recently used Rothera Sharp for the sale of our flat in Nottingham. The sale was quite difficult at times but Ruth Pilling was consistently brilliant and her friendly and professional approach always gave us complete faith and she kept us informed every step of the way. We will definitely ask Ruth to help us again with our next purchase/sale. Thank you so much Ruth!!
