Keeping in touch

We recognise the importance of keeping in touch. This, of course, is not just whilst we are dealing with any specific matter, but also more generally over the years. We see it as part of our service to make you aware of the things that might affect you as they arise.


We believe it is very important that there should be no hidden surprises for you when it comes to our charges. With this in mind we always advise our clients of our charging methods at the outset and keep you updated as things progress.

Words from our clients

...In our brief time working with Pepperell's we have been very pleased with their quality of service and professionalism...

After calling 15 carefully picked solicitors, Pepperell’s were the only firm that returned our call and took our business seriously. They carefully gathered information and explained their quotation in a transparent and reasonable fashion. We look forward to working with Pepperells in the future.

...Dealing with Pepperells and Natasha as my solicitor couldn't have been any easier...

Any questions, concerns or problems I encoutered throughout my house buying process were dealt with quickly and clearly. Theres nothing more I could have asked for and could not have been made any easier for me.

...Pepperells and in particular Patrick Craft and his team are extremely professional and you can be 100 % certain that a thorough job is done...

Patrick picked up on an issue that the seller’s solicitor should have seen 2 years ago when the house was first built and had failed to do so, but Patrick was on the ball and would not proceed until the issue was addressed. I would always recommend Pepperells and esp Patrick. Absolutely excellent service. Thank you.
