All of whom will have different agendas and requirements. It can also be one of the most stressful and challenging times of your life.

Our experienced team is here to guide and advise you every step of the way, to manage those third parties and ensure your requirements are met within the timeframe you require. Whether you need a solicitor for buying or selling a property for yourself or additional investment properties, we keep up with every aspect of property law to protect your transactions and investments.

We've used Lester Aldridge a number of times now, for x3 different house moves, and they have been first rate each time. They explained processes, kept us updated, always got back to us, and offered great advice - especially during our last move when some obstacles cropped up (at the other end). I feel they would always go the extra mile to look after their clients. I can't recommend them highly enough. If we move again, we'll be using them.Close quote

Our experience with LA and Tarron Dobson specifically has been unlike any conveyancing experience before. Tarron was always available, always patient and clear. We managed to overcome a few issues no doubt thanks to her. We always felt calm and in control of the process thanks to Tarron. I will not hesitate to use LA Law again after this fantastic experience. The process was almost entirely stress-free which isn’t easy to come by with conveyancing.Close quote

Undoubtedly the best firm of solicitors I have ever used. Sarah Brown and her property team are extremely capable and helpful. They get the job done with precision and as fast as humanly possible. Very highly recommended. Many many thanks :))Close quote

Having instructed Sarah Brown (Lester Aldridge) to act for us on the successful sale of our property in 2015, during which she calmly, patiently and professionally explained each step of the process and ensured that everything was completed promptly and without incident, we were pleased to instruct her again to act for us on the recent purchase of a holiday let. Not only did Sarah help navigate us through the process, promptly answering and often anticipating our questions and concerns, her confident and professional approach also impressed the sellers’ solicitors and the estate agent who complimented us on our choice of Solicitor. Sarah is the consummate professional, exudes calm assurance and is a pleasure to deal with. We would have no hesitation in appointing her again or recommending Sarah Brown and Lester Aldridge to anyone who requires a Solicitor to help them buy or sell a property.Close quote

Lester Aldridge took on the conveyancing of my buyer after they sacked their solicitor due to a lack of progress that nearly broke the chain. Tarron Dobson took on the case and moved the process on extremely quickly even in a very busy housing market. She was a lot more proficient and communicative to her client and our estate agents than the solicitors I employed. I will definitely use her and LA when we move again.Close quote

... The service was superb in that everything was handled pretty seamlessly and speedily; we were guided through the process and our interests were always well managed with any issues highlighted and dealt with satisfactorily. What was most apparent was the responsiveness of Tarron and Chengchgeng, never having to chase up on any aspect, actually, it was the converse when we were the ones being chased! ... I would definitely use LA Law for conveyancing and recommend them highly.Close quote

The Bournemouth branch of Lester-Aldridge successfully sold our leasehold property despite the many unfathomable procedures that must be navigated for the sale of a flat. Michelle was our point of contact and she always communicated clearly and in good time and kept us up to date with progress. Additionally, the phone always got answered, and, if Michelle was busy, one of her colleagues was only too happy to help. Whatever hurdle the buyer’s solicitor put in the way, Michelle had a cost-effective and clear solution, and we are very grateful for her help. Despite many apparent setbacks during the sale process, Michelle always remained positive and reassuring. I wholeheartedly recommend Lester Aldridge for their professionalism, commitment, and in-depth knowledge of the ins and outs of conveyancing.Close quote

Natasha and Regan went above and beyond in dealing with our house sale and purchase. The conveyancing for our purchase was not straightforward, and Natasha picked up on legal aspects which the other side’s legal team had not, and dealt with it, meaning that we are protected in the future. The team are very knowledgeable law-wise, very efficient, and very lovely to work with. 100% recommend.Close quote

Lester Aldridge was recommended to us by a family member and they did not disappoint. Rebecca Shaw looked after us and did a fantastic job and whilst she was on holiday Sarah Brown took over and also did a fantastic job. We also dealt with Regan Cooke who was brilliant too. Couldn’t fault the service, made purchasing a property a lot less stressful than it could have been!Close quote

Excellent service on what turned into a very trying and frustrating sale of our flat (through no fault of theirs). However patience won eventually & the sale has just been completed. We have to thank Natasha & Regan for always responding promptly & to try and keep things moving! To repeat, we recommend this excellent service!
