  • Regional Development Director, National RP

    “I’ve worked with Sharratts for 25 years and rate them very highly – they’re very knowledgeable, helpful and proactive, and they know how to treat clients. Legal processes in land are very complex and drawn out, but they understand what we’re up against and give great support by acting promptly, giving clear advice and pushing the boundaries to get things done. Brilliant service and hard to beat.”

  • Development Director, Medium sized Kent based Housing Association

    “Sharratts give a London service, but with a local feel. You are clear who you are dealing with and being a smaller company there is more knowledge sharing, for example if a partner is away another solicitor will be able to cover. They always go the extra mile and are prepared to meet very tight timescales where it is critical for the project delivery. Sharratts have worked with Moat for many years and have often provided pragmatic solutions to resolve the issues arising across the industry.”

  • Head of Projects, National Housing Provider

    “Sharratts provide an extremely efficient, competitively-priced conveyancing service, but I especially value the extra value they offer. They always respond swiftly to requests for advice and their training is excellent. I’m impressed by their partnership approach to client relationships and the team’s enthusiastic support of client fund-raising activities is admirable.”
  • Sales and Marketing Director, Large London and South-East based RP

    “One of the main reasons we instruct Sharratts is that they are very easy to work with; they use simple language and make communication easy, unlike many solicitors. They work with us to find solutions to complex issues and add value, for example by providing free training – from basic conveyancing to S106 agreements. We also appreciate the clarity and transparency of their fee structure.”
  • Head of Sales, Large London and South-East based Housing Association

    Homes Builder
    “Sharratts’ service is very good. They’re easy to work with, always on hand to answer questions and quick to respond, which helps us a lot. They explain legal issues clearly and simply so that everyone at all levels can understand. We have a very close and open relationship with their team and we welcome their involvement in our business, helping us improve our processes and evaluate new initiatives.”
  • Head of Sales, Medium sized Kent based Housing Association

    “Sharratts provide a very good end-to-end service. They’re always responsive, willing to help and I trust their expertise – I can pick up the phone any time and get advice that I can rely on. They’re very approachable and helpful in explaining issues in layman’s terms. We’ve built an excellent longstanding relationship with Sharratts and they add value by providing training and helping to improve our processes. It’s an excellent service.”
