  • "Moving house is very stressful, but Rothera Sharp did indeed make it a smooth experience. They could not have been more helpful and extremely professional. I will definitely be recommending them to anyone planning a house move."

    Jean Hatherley

  • "Thank you for sorting out my home purchase in due course. Most grateful."

    Electra Lumaj

  • "Michelle and Julianne were thorough, professional and proactive-a seamless process. I would have no hesitation in using again."

    R. Brighty

  • "All the necessary work to complete sale and purchase were dealt with efficiently and the process was highly professional."

    Dorothy Bell

  • "This was a very difficult transaction from a difficult seller. Michelle Young protected our interests at all times and was very patient but persevered. Thank you."

    Rachel Horsley

  • "Michelle and her team provided an outstanding service and I wouldn't hesitate to use them again. Everything that they said they would do they did. They worked efficiently and honestly and when I compare this experience to that received from other solicitors it is head and shoulders above in standard. Others could learn a lot from Michelle. Thank you so very much in managing so efficiently what was not a straightforward purchase or sale."

    Claire Peers

  • "Initially I chose Rothera Dowson because its office location was convenient to where I lived and the estate agents. But after the sympathetic and considerate service provided by both solicitors, I would certainly choose them again. I was comfortable with their attitude and reassured."

    Michael J Smedley

  • "The service I received was excellent. In particular Michelle Young was exemplary and I especially valued the way in which she was flexible in seeing me on a couple of occasions when I called in without a prior appointment."
