Excellent service

I engaged the services of Goughs Solicitors in Trowbridge, in particular Ailie Peacock, to act on my behalf for the sale of my house. Ailie was always clear with her advice, acted in a timely manor and answered any questions I had almost immediately. She was very proactive in dealing with the other parties involved in a slightly convoluted chain.

Ailie also managed a very late request from our buyers with calm efficiency and the utmost professionalism. The end result was a smooth sale and completion, with remarkably little stress on our part. I would not hesitate from using them again.

Rhianna Cole

The solicitor I dealt with at Goughs, Rhianna Cole, was an absolute star, I cannot fault her in any way at all. She made everything in the situation I was in so easy to understand, and she guided me through an extremely stressful time, with extreme professionalism, yet a very personal and sensitive touch. Can't big them up enough.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Made first-time buying a (relatively) simple process!

Sophie was very attentive and responsive and understood the need to act quickly in regard to our purchase process. She was diligent with the paperwork and was very easy to talk to and clear at explaining what was required in terms of action from our side and from the seller.

Testimonials

Georgina Catlin

I would like to Georgina for your help, advice and professionalism over the last year or so. From a personal viewpoint, your clear and level headed approach certainly helped keep my feet firmly planted on the ground, it's greatly appreciated. I feel that your recommendation regarding Counsel was also spot on and certainly helped secure an outcome that was beneficial and fair to all.

Eleanor Wood

I think it’s now been close to 3 years Ellie has been working on my behalf in what I imagine even she would say has been an incredibly challenging divorce. Ellie has managed to secure me a fair split of the marital home and most importantly get my ex to take responsibility for a loan that she was refusing to pay her part of, this was a huge victory as far as I am concerned.  Ellie has been professional and calm throughout despite the many frustrations and me finding things incredibly stressful she has always been there the voice of reason. She is absolutely a credit to your company and I will recommend her highly.
