"Paul Berry has a great way of explaining things when you have no experience in the matter in hand."

Mrs Y, London

"Thank you for all your help during my recent move – please thank your team too. COVID has not /did not make life easy, but you made it as painless as possible. Pinney Talfourd will be on my recommended list."

Mr B, Essex

"Paul handled my previous house purchase and when I wanted to sell up and buy a new house, he was my immediate choice of solicitor. I was very happy with all aspects of the service. Communication with me was excellent. Small issues with my house purchase were spotted, raised, and dealt with efficiently and I never had any doubt they were looking after my interests and communicating with me well. I would certainly recommend Pinney Talfourd, and Paul in particular for conveyancing. He was always professional but friendly and responsive."

Ms E, Essex

"Thank you for all your work and advice during the conveyancing process for the sale of Dad's house. I appreciated the friendly and very professional attitude from the first call for a quote through to the end of the process with the call to say it's all done. It has been clear that a lot of work goes on behind the scenes so thank you to you both and anyone else involved. I have felt in very safe hands all the way through and would not hesitate to recommend your services to anyone else or to use you again in the future."

Mr Beadle, London

"I'd like to recommend Paul Berry for the excellent service he provided on the sale of our property. At an extremely busy time in the market Paul has been a star. Knowledgeable, quick to respond, clear and calm, he has been a constant voice of reassurance during a long drawn out process. Paul's experience and professionalism kept it all together and we are very grateful for his guidance and great work. Cannot recommend highly enough."

Mr Learmouth, Lark Property Limited

"I truly feel like Paul Berry and Pinney Talfourd are on my side. Not simply in a legal sense, but in terms of driving things forward, keeping me updated and giving excellent, pragmatic advice. I have now completed eight property transactions with them and am probably the only buy-to-let investor i know that recommends their solicitor at every opportunity. I know i am getting solicitor level counsel at every turn and never have to worry about the legal aspect of building my property portfolio. "

Mr & Mrs Norwich, East Sussex

"We would like to say how much we appreciate your work in selling our old house and buying our new one. You were so efficient, we didn't even get to meet you! I found it very stressful to go through the procedure after 35 years [since our last move] and being in our seventies, but you were very reassuring and made things clear."

Mr & Mrs Parker, Hutton

"It was a pleasure to deal with Paul Berry on the sale of our house in Hutton. We found the quality of service delivered by Paul and his team to be absolutely excellent and the fees to be very reasonable.

Paul was very responsive to chasing other solicitors and estate agents in the chain and very quick to resolve any problems that arose. Paul was also very clear in explaining the next steps and in providing concise breakdowns of the financial statements regarding our sale. Although our chain regarding our sale was quite short, the buyers at the bottom had a different perspective on time frames and Paul was very patient in liaising with all concerned."
