"We have moved before and used other solicitors and I must say that the professionalism shown by the staff here was the best we've seen. I would highly recommend Dean and his colleagues as they have been fast to act and easy to talk to. They kept us informed and made everything move smoothly even though our circumstances were difficult." Rob and Celine S- 2019

"We would highly recommend Crosby and Woods solicitors, specifically Helena Boultwood for purchasing/selling a property. The process from start to finish was easy, organised and quick. The fees were really reasonable too. We were updated throughout the purchase of our first house and Helena took the extra time to explain things to us and answer all our numerous queries. Super friendly, professional and they all put in so much effort. Thank you so much!!" Mr & Mrs Passco- 2019

"Dear Helena, Many thanks for assisting us in our purchase and well done in getting everything done in good time! We are very happy with the service you provided. We were well looked after throughout the process and you helped us resolve a few concerns we had along the way. Your location was very good for us being just a short drive away from where we are and this was one factor in choosing Crosby & Woods, but also we found your quote to be in the middle of those we received (we thought this was where we wanted to be). In the end the fee was as expected (taking account of a reasonable increase owing to the expediency required). The reception staff were friendly and helpful." G.Watson- 2019

“Helena - Thank you so much for your calmness and help, advice and efficiency with our sale” D Lewis- 2019

"I just wanted to send our thanks for all the hard work Helena has had to put in to assist us with what was a fairly hectic sale due to buyers further down the chain being somewhat troublesome. Though all of this Helena was always patient, helpful, professional and above all else informative and we will highly recommend the services of Helena and Crosby & Woods to all." Mr & Mrs Dennis, Newhaven- 2019

"Dean Skinner was our solicitor in our first ever flat purchase. Being new to the process, Dean was very helpful at explaining things to us and helping us when we weren’t sure who to contact about various topics. The service was always professional and to a very high standard. We would most definitely recommend using Crosby and Woods." F.H- March 2019

"Dean you have been so efficient and helpful with getting our sale completed. You have been a far cry from the previous solicitors we were using" L.M- Feb 2019

"Just a quick email to pass on praise for Helena Boultwood who is handling the sale of our property in Shoreham. We suffered the gruesome torture of a lumbering 4-link chain but Helena was incredibly efficient and accessible throughout the whole process. I believe she played a key role in finally achieving exchange yesterday and I would like to praise her unstintingly for her efforts." M.N- 2019

"For the sale and purchase of properties over the past year, my wife and I instructed Crosby & Woods, with Daniel Curry as our solicitor and Mary-Anne Burt as our conveyancer. We wanted to put on record how impressed we were by the services both of Daniel and Mary-Anne. Our sale and purchase were both protracted for reasons outside our control. Daniel's impressive attention to detail and strong representation of our interests reduced much of the stress of the up and downs of this process. Likewise, Mary-Anne executed very efficiently our conveyancing needs, always keeping us in the loop regarding changing circumstances. We are very grateful for their professionalism and dedication." Anon- Feb 2019

"Dear David My husband Phil and I recently had the pleasure of working with Daniel Curry and Mary-Ann Burt on our conveyance. I can not recommend them highly enough. A slick and efficient team, they were friendly, helpful and communicative and everything ran incredibly smoothly. Our heartfelt thanks to them. Should we decide to move again, we’ll know where to come, but we’ll certainly be recommending their services to anyone we know needing a conveyancing transaction handled professionally and with the minimum of fuss." L.M- January 2019

"I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your courteous, efficient service and for making my sale and purchase run smoothly. I will definitely recommend you." E.B- December 2018

"Helena did the conveyancing for my recent move. She was really efficient and supportive. I found it easy to contact her throughout the process and she also dealt very competently with all the complications that occurred through both my sale and purchase. I couldn’t recommend Helena highly enough. Many thanks." A.B- November 2018

"Dear David I am writing to let you know how pleased we are with the professional and approachable manner in which Helena dealt with our transaction. During the last few years, I have personally engaged a number of solicitors and conveying specialists and Helena is certainly at the top for her knowledge, skills and equally importantly, her pleasant manner. Helena, thank you so much for guiding us through the recent transaction, and look forward to linking up again soon." R-Shah- August 2018

“The friendly, approachable team at Crosby Woods guided us through each stage of the buying process, provided excellent, professional advice and remained calm when things became hectic. Overall a great, value-for-money service.” J.B- July 2018

"I contacted Dean at Crosby & Woods on recommendation and couldn’t have been happier with the conveyancing service provided. After our initial conversation, Dean promptly sent out the relevant paperwork and once I have engaged his services the communication from Dean and Helena was excellent, and, as a first time buyer, they answered all my questions clearly to give me peace of mind.

Throughout the process they were efficient in dealing with my enquiries and met all deadlines to ensure my house purchase went as smoothly as possible.

I had to drop off documents at the Crosby & Woods office on a couple of occasions and even though I didn’t deal with Dean or Helena directly the rest of the Crosby & Woods team were friendly and efficient. I will certainly considering using Crosby & Woods in the future as and when I need their services. Thanks again." M-Tate July 2018"

"I wanted to write and say a huge THANK YOU to you both for all your help and support over the past three months. You were a great help to me to finalise everything and to manage it all so smoothly." Mr T, Brighton- October 2016

I would like to say how happy I am with the services of your team. Helena excelled herself dealing with a difficult and challenging (for many reasons) sale of my property, lease extension and sale of garden, all of which has been completed today.
I started the process with Dean Skinner, and was then handed over to Helena, although Dean did take time out to meet with Tony (my husband) and myself to sign the forms at a moments notice when needed.

Both Dean, and especially Helena were excellent and were always happy to answer my questions and keep me updated.
Never was a phone call or email ignored.
Thank you once again to both of them, they are a credit to your company, and I would have no hesitation in using again or recommending."- S Meah- October 2016

"Dear David,

 I felt I must write to say how well Dean and Helena have looked after me during the recent sale of a flat. This was a small matter really but it arrived at a very difficult time for me and Helena especially, was extremely supportive and helpful.

These things are always a bit stressful for those of us not versed in the law but Helena was approachable throughout and helped me find a sense of perspective amidst the sea of endless queries. They dealt  very professionally with many more queries and demands than I knew about  and for this I am also grateful. Without them there were times when I could have cheerfully pulled out." Ms A Cotton, Hove- August 2016

"Pat Richards has always been a fantastic solicitor to have working on your side. His professionalism, wisdom and experience are second to none. I have been using his services now for several years and he has helped me with many property purchases and sales, making each one simple and pain free and as importantly, done at a very fair and reasonable price.

For someone who runs their own business and has limited time available to devote to the ‘nitty-gritty’ process of property purchase I have always been able to completely rely on and trust Pat to handle these things for me with absolute confidence my best interests are looked after.  He is hardworking and looks after my whole family’s affairs.

I would have absolutely no hesitance in recommending his services to anyone at all. He is an excellent member of what is a very professional and knowledgeable legal team at Crosby & Woods Solicitors. Thank you again for all your help Pat". Mr. C.H, Hove
