Creating a will.


When the true facts are explained to you, as they were by Mr Maclaren, about what could happen in the event of not making a will, you realize that it is well worth the effort to have one properly drawn up soon than later.

Many thanks to Sally (Probate) and Rebecca (Conveyancing) and their respective Teams for all their assistance and guidance in the matter of my late Mother’s probate application and recent sale of her property. All concerned were very professional, diligent and knowledgeable thus making both processes run as smoothly as can be expected. We would have no hesitation recommending them both to anyone looking for similar legal expertise. Mark & Morna Holliday

I had the pleasure of using the conveyancing services of the Scunthorpe branch of Sills & Betteridge, earlier this year, whilst selling my home.

The lovely ladies that I have spoken to in this department, Dawn and Tiffany, could not have been more helpful and understanding. The sale of my property was all very straight forward and they explained everything that was going on, at every step of the process.

I had been holding off writing this review as my self and my partner are in the process of looking to buy somewhere together, still. I could not, however, recommend their services highly enough and have already to some colleagues also going through the conveyancing process. I very much look forward to using them again when we eventually have an offer accepted.

Thank you

A client


We dealt with an apparently award winning solicitor in Karen Bower Brown who made little effort on our case, did not seem interested in fighting our case and simply didn't believe we would win, she even put in her notes that she thought we'd made stuff up (frankly, quite insulting!). The bill for very little work was horrendous, so much so we made an official complaint about her and her approach to our case, we received a refund.
A few years later, lots of paperwork and some hard graft, we won the case ourselves.
If this is the standard Sills and Betteridge provide, I'd rather do it all myself. I would not recommend them.
