We feel confident in recommending the services of Sills and Betteridge for any conveyancing requirements.


 It’s our absolute pleasure to recommend both Tiffany and Dawn from the Scunthorpe branch of Sills and Betteridge LLP, for their endeavours in our recent sale/purchase transactions. Both are a truly valuable asset to Sills and Betteridge and would be a beneficial addition to any organization. We feel confident in recommending the services of Sills and Betteridge for any conveyancing requirements. Not only were they thoroughly professional, but also friendly, approachable and always willing to take the time to discuss our concerns and respond to any questions. Consequently, this made us feel at ease and therefore gave us confidence in their ability to provide an excellent service. Best wishes, Kev & Jan

Caroline is a star and a credit to Sills & Betteridge.


I would like to commend Caroline Gatenby at the Spilsby Office for her excellent care and service to my Mum when her house purchase ran into delays and a break-in before completion, she was there all the way spending lots of time sorting the problems out for us with the Vendor's Solicitors for a speedy resolution. My mum is now happily in her new home!

I wanted to leave a personal thank you to Caroline Gatenby from your spilsby office .


We have completed our purchase of our new home today after a prolonged process due to a complex freehold and leasehold set up. Caroline has taken ownership of our purchase in recent weeks and has been excellent in every way. She has communicated clearly and is always happy to help and even listen to our frustrations and helped us find solutions. She is a credit to your business and we are very grateful for all of the help we have recieved since she took over the process .

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.
