Highly recommend for Divorce matters


I can’t recommend Hart Brown highly enough! My case was dealt with by Julian Waldon of the Cobham branch but with flexibility to meet me at their Guildford offices. Julian was professional and supportive from not only a legal perspective but also emotionally whilst I was going through a very difficult time.
Julian’s knowledge and approach was faultless providing me with expert advice and guidance on all matters arising from divorce with a young child involved.
Thank you to all the team who helped look after my case and offered support along the way.

Residential Property/Conveyancing


Hart Brown provided a clear estimate of costs and timescales for my conveyancing. They were easy to communicate with throughout the process and available to answer questions. Jeremy Jupp was professional and attentive to my needs, delight and thorough and always gave the clear impression representing my needs in the process which was reassuring and confidence inspiring. He has a deep experience and handled matters efficiently and to agreed time schedules. Very satisfied with the service.

Residential Property/Conveyancing


I originally approached Hart Brown to help me worth a house purchase and also a re-mortgage of my then current property as a Buy to Let. Unfortunately the fees for the BTL re-mortgage were not competitive and I took the business to another firm. Hart brown's quote was £1,159.00 v's Ramsden's quote of £449.00. A big difference for the same service. It may have been a more straightforward experience for us both if the quote had been more competitive. I was very satisfied with value for money for the services I instructed. Also, Jeremy was extremely helpful in the property purchase process and I would recommend him to anyone looking for a efficient and swift process. Thank you.

The service and legal advice provided by Jordan Page was excellent. He was sensitive to our needs, quick to respond and saved us a good deal of time and unnecessary expenditure.

Hart Brown Solicitors Review – Incompetent and Unprofessional  


Hart Brown Solicitors are probably the worst solicitors I have had the misfortune to deal with in over 25 years of business. They were instructed by the freeholder of my leasehold flat to deal with a lease extension. I am required to meet their costs, although I am not their client, so I am prevented from complaining directly to Hart Brown about these issues.


Not only have they overcharged in my opinion (having obtained 3 other quotes which were half the price for the same work), they have completely mishandled a straightforward lease extension, drafting the wrong terms not once but twice.

When their mistake was pointed out the first time, they denied the error and only changed their position some 2 weeks later. In the meantime, I had incurred extra costs due to having to instruct in independent surveyor to re negotiate the terms, and even when this was done, Hart Brown drafted the lease incorrectly again, making the same mistake they originally made. They were not even able to get the name of our Conveyancer right in correspondence.  


When the mistake was pointed out for the second time, they again requested £500+Vat to fix it, adding to my escalating costs. Obviously we replied disputing the extra charges, but they are now ignoring our emails.

Total clowns! DO NOT USE Hart Brown Solicitors

Hart Brown responded to this review on 18 June, 2019

We are greatly concerned to receive a review of this nature, especially in light of all of the other reviews we have had from our clients. Firstly, it is the firm's policy not to pay commissions to anyone and secondly, after undertaking our own research into your review on this site and other review sites, we note that you are not a client of this firm and therefore we will be asking Google to remove this review.

Living outside the UK can be awkward when dealing with legal matters. My late father had dealings with this firm. So I instructed them to carry out probate on my father's estate. I really appreciated the excellent professional, friendly service they provided. I would highly recommend them to anyone.
