Tenant Eviction

We had decided to sell our BTL which was next door to the house we owned before we moved. Our circumstances had changed in that we no longer lived next door which was one of the reasons we purchased as we lived in a University Town & also to help fund our Daughters 5 years at Vet College. We had given our tenant all of the required notice including Covid & had sold the house, however he didn't want to move out. We had no other option than to engage Helen Thomas who was supporting & informative every step of the way, in what was a very stressful situation our us.
We now have our property back & all being well will complete this month, I would have no hesitation using Stephens & Scown again & would highly recommend their services.

Harriet Wigmore and Liz Allen

I engaged Stephens Scown, namely Harriet Wigmore and Liz Allen, to act for me in my divorce proceedings. In what was a very difficult time for me, they acted with extreme professionalism and provided me with invaluable advice, whilst always listening with empathy to my concerns and they always responded by return to any questions that I had. They never once made me feel foolish or inadequate - unlike the first law firm I engaged. My divorce was settled in a timely manner and with a satisfactory outcome to both parties. Even now, 12 months after my divorce was finalised, Harriet is always willing to answer any ongoing questions that have arisen. I would not hesitate to recommend Stephens Scown and in particular Harriet and Liz Allen. They helped me in a very difficult situation and for that, I will always be extremely grateful.

Dispute resolution

I contacted Stephens Scown in my capacity as Secretary of a Cornwall-based local charity placed on notice of potential litigation brought by a member alleging defamation and harassment, both of which my charity denied. The advice which I received from Catherine Mathews was both timely and pertinent, and written in a way which made it straightforward for a non-lawyer such as I to understand. My telephone conversations with Catherine and her colleague the firm were similarly helpful. I am pleased to say that we were able to dispose of the claim on satisfactory terms, and the advice, both on the law and on the tactics to be employed were instrumental in enabling us to reach this outcome.

Incredibly impressed - great firm!

I have just concluded a property transaction in which I had to deal with Stephen Scown as the Solicitors for the freeholder. Due to my own error on the day of completion I had to contact them and ask them to take immediate action - I dealt with Steph Wharmby and Jess Fallowes and I was blown away! They were helpful, knowledgeable and professional - instead of playing the blame game they just took action and resolved the issue for me, despite Jess having to work remotely to get it done! I would wholeheartedly recommend this firm and Steph and Jess in particular. Thank you for a great service.
