What a service!


Having previously used more of a 'conveyancing' service before, Trethowans were a breath of fresh air!
Julie Culverhouse was transparent, loyal and dedicated to helping us with the sale and purchase of our home.
We never felt silly asking questions or getting Julie to clarify anything for us and there was always a prompt and detailed reply.
When Julie was on annual leave, John supported us and also had the same dedicated approach in her absence.
Thank you for helping our dreams come true, we will definitely use Trethowans again and will be recommending them at every opportunity.

House Purchase - First Time Buyer


Was recommended by a friend for a first time property purchase. Jon was great - detailed, thorough, happy to explain matters I'd not understood. I felt in very capable hands, and received lots of helpful information in a great format.

Thank you Katie


I have no hesitation in recommending Trethowans and will continue to use their services for all my legal matters going forward.
My sister and her husband recommended Katie to me and from the start, she had my complete trust and so I left her to take care of everything knowing she would do so with only my best interest in mind. This was my first ever property purchase and my head was all over the place resulting in me pulling out of my purchase twice. Katie put no pressure on me to complete and I am very pleased to say that I am now living happily in Poole. My only regret was not using Katie for the sale of our family home however, I have learned from that mistake. Trust is very important and I had that with Katie. Thank you Katie for standing by me.

Moving house


They are not the cheapest, but I believe you get what you pay for and when it comes to buying and selling your property you need 100% confidence in your solicitor.
We were fortunate to have Joanne looking after our sale and purchase. With the support of her secretary we felt reassured at all stages of the process, this is the second time we have used them and would recommend them

Help with settlement of my parents estate


I have received support from Rupert Thompson for the settlement of my late parents estate.
Rupert has been an excellent support; he has been meticulous and thorough throughout. I have always felt able to ask any questions and or for explanations of some of the processes which I did not understand. Rupert has an extensive knowledge of estate settlement and has dealt with some complicated issues I would not have been able to tackle whilst advising me regarding issues he felt I may be able to tackle with his support.
Rupert is easy to talk to and has always been quick to respond to any enquiries.
I would not hesitate to use his professional services should I need help in the future.

Excellent, compassionate, friendly solicitors.


We were recommended Trethowans prior to the purchase of a property for our disabled son, we also set up a vulnerable persons trust at the same time in order for the trust to manage the property when we are no longer capable.
Robert Thompson [Trethowans] met with us to discuss our needs and wishes for the Trust and immediately grasped exactly what we wished to achieve, he has a very friendly, reassuring professional manner and is very easy to talk to and we are delighted with the final Trust document.
Prior to meeting Rupert, we had a meeting with another solicitor from a different practice and we came out totally confused and unsure we would be able to achieve our wishes for our disabled son.
The purchase of the property was done by Michele White [Trethowans] again Michele was very easy to talk to, very professional, easy to contact and we were fully informed of all aspects of the purchase. The process was faultless and pleasurable, which is not always the case when purchasing a property.
My wife and I would like to thanks both Michele and Rupert for their expertise and help, they made a potentially stressful time a enjoyable pleasant experience.

Outstanding in urgemt circumstances


I cannot speak highly enough of Trethowans, we dealt with Rupert Thompson who acted with the utmost compassion, and professionalism when my mum was in hospital.
My mother’s existing solicitor was in Ringwood, and we were told it was “out of their jurisdiction” so at the last minute Rupert stepped up to the mark and beyond. Ensuring that her wishes were attended to and expedited, in a way that frankly I did not feel was possible!
I would not hesitate to recommend him, and Trethowans, to anyone requiring a solicitor in the area. Five stars indeed.

Outstanding service


Having dealt with various solicors in our time, we've experienced our fair share of strife and frustration of typical solicitor firms. Trethowans are definitely not your typical firm- they're rare gem in being so incredible! Our solicitor went above and beyond her call of duty to secure our new home. She was very thorough, helpful and got everything done on time, despite the uphill battles from the vendors side that we thought we'd never get through. She was also so easy to talk to and explain how it was progressing (without all the legal jargon I can never understand). I've never come across such a meticulous yet approachable firm like this before, and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for an amazingly efficient solicitor.

Very efficient and great service.


Thanks to Holly for a very smooth house purchase. Her communication is excellent and I can recommend both Holly and Trethowans. I also liked the fixed fee - it is transparent and does not leave you with any unexpected bills.
