  • I would recommend this business

Recommended by our estate agent and it was the best decision we could have made. Carried out the conveyancing on my Mums property, I have been most impressed by their professionalism and kept me informed of progress at every stage to a successful completion.

We contacted Roythornes late last year in order to obtain grant of probate and for legal assistance in the sale of our family home for 60+ years. They were extremely professional, supportive and patient with us throughout. I would like to personally thank Helen, Fiona, Lisa, Sophie and Joseph for the care and attention shown to us in what was an emotional time for us.. Highly recommended!

Until using Roythornes, I had never had a good experience with solicitors. Gavin was very quick to respond to any of my queries and kept me informed at all times. I would recommend Roythornes and wouldn't hesitate to use them again.

All house moves are stressful, but when I bought my current house and sold my last house, I never needed to worry about the solicitor. Everything was managed quickly and thoroughly. Very refreshing!

We have used Roythornes for a series of property related transactions (some a bit tricky) and they have provided a very clear, efficient and timely service at all times. The staff are always polite and helpful and the service is reasonably priced. I would thoroughly recommend them.

Quick responses to queries and always cheerful and happy to help. Lisa and Sophie were so supportive and understanding. We were stuck in an awful chain and there were multiple issues with those lower down the chain. Throughout this Roythornes staff chased others and supported us with exceptional professionalism whilst also being friendly and approachable. I cannot recommend them highly enough. If only all companies operated at this high standard: life would be so much easier!

Customer Testimonials

Highly efficient conveyancing service provided by Anne and the team that represented value for money and peace of mind at an otherwise highly stressful time. Thoroughly recommended.


I used Roythornes recently and both Lisa and Sophie were fantastic. Extremely helpful, very efficient and all round friendly, which really does makes a difference. Highly recommended.


Very impressed with the service received by Sophie at Roythornes. Previous experience of dealing with solicitors when moving house has proved stressful. Chasing paperwork, physically posting documents back and forth, not being able to talk to someone when we wanted to. This was just not the case with Roythornes, if we had a question we could call Sophie and she would answer! Sounds simple but this makes such a difference to the experience. She responded promptly to emails, sent documentation efficiently and the ability to be able to digitally sign and email back documents made things so much easier and stress free! Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a solicitor when moving home.
