Our areas of expertise include:

We tackle all types of Commercial Property work, we recently helped purchase some agricultural land for a client and here's what he had to say about our services:

"Most of us only contact solicitors when it's essential or unavoidable and when we do, we tend to complain about exorbitant costs or slow service. When appointing Pearson's to act on my behalf, I entrusted them to deal with a subject I had no experience of at all, that of purchasing agricultural land. Having a specialist in such a subject and the supporting staff able to answer every query, allay my concerns and keep me updated, I found Karen Piontek and Alison Brown to be extremely professional, efficient and totally committed to my best interests. Costs were explained prior to their appointment and the only financial surprises were from third parties, which didn't increase their own fees.

In writing this testimonial, I can only respond to my own experience and state that I would have no hesitation is recommending or reappointing Pearson's if the need arises again." 

We have contacts with many property experts including surveyors, architects, tax experts, and banks and can assist you in receiving comprehensive advice on any property transaction.

For your added peace of mind, Pearson Solicitors is an accredited member of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme (CQS)
