Private client review:

Rebecca acted for us on the sale of my deceased mother's flat. It was not a straighforward process but Rebecca dealt with it in a very professional manner and was most helpful through difficult times.

Rebecca helped me to become a first time home owner and has proven to be reliable, responsive, and extremely knowledgable at dealing with her clients needs. Would highly recommend and use Rebeccas' legal services again.

Co-worker review:

Rebecca has acted for me on several occasions and I have confidence in her professional ability to get the job done. Her fee estimates are clear and always adhered to, and she is efficient in her general approach and communications. She also has good back up from her team which is reassuring, so that I can know that my case will be progressed as required even if she is not immediately free herself.

Rebecca is the consummate professional, but more than that, her help was personable and prompt. She was extremely thorough and knowledgeable in the purchase of our property and we will be using her for future purchases. Lynn Blades, BA, PCC, MGSCC & Damian Jones, Owner, DJ Films.

Co-worker review:

I have worked with Rebecca for 14 years and can honestly say that you’d be hard pushed to find a friendlier, more dedicated or motivated lawyer. I have trusted her to handle all three of my house purchases/sales and she has never let me down. Her communication and client care are excellent and she always manages to make you feel like you are her number one priority no matter how busy she is. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend her and have done so on many occasions.

Rebecca provided an extremely quick & efficient conveyance service recently when we bought our new home. She kept us up to date on the progress & treated us with patience & respect, no matter how trivial our questions were. I believe Rebecca shows great leadership qualities & thoroughly deserves that recognition.

Peer review:

I have worked with Rebecca Hughes on a number of client transactions, and my experience has been second to none! Rebecca is extremely trustworthy, diligent, very professional, efficient and easy to communicate with which for me as a Buying Agent are qualities of immense importance. With Rebecca's guidance and support she has successfully navigated a path way through often challenging and difficult transactions. Also, Cripps as a firm are able to support my clients with all their other legal requirements, especially any tax matters. I do frequently recommend Rebecca, without any hesitation, to clients, friends and family.

Peer review:

Whenever I have the opportunity to recommend a solicitor, whether to a buyer or seller, Rebecca is always at the forefront of who I put forward. On the ball, proactive, and efficient. Always happy to provide an update and breakdown of where a sale has got to, and therefore ensuring the deal has the best chance of concluding positively.

30 Apr 2019

Peer review:

An amazing conveyancing solicitor is hard to come by, and Rebecca is uniquely brilliant. I actively recommend Rebecca to my clients as she makes such a positive difference. Rebecca's professionalism is second to none, and she is extremely hardworking, often working outside of normal office hours to progress transactions. Effective communication goes a long way to keeping clients informed and reassured. Rebecca demonstrates this skill consistently which together with her personable manner makes her a joy to work with. When challenges present themselves, as is often the case, Rebecca calmly tackles the problem, going above and beyond to find the best possible solution.

28 Mar 2018

Peer review:

Rebecca possesses all of the attributes you would associate with lawyers of the highest quality: she is hard-working, consultative, diligent, communicative, constructive yet manages to be personable too, knowing when to give strong advice and when to listen. In my view she is the outstanding property lawyer in the region for all of the above reasons and we have, are and will continue to refer clients seeking the best in class.

Acted on the sale of a property for £3.5m in rural Kent with extensive land and a separate cottage. As part of the sale we renewed a grazing agreement with a local farmer to assist with the buyer’s stamp duty claim for mixed use.

Acted on the sale of a period family home in London for £2.2m and related purchase for £1.8m. The clients were delighted with the service they received.

Assisted clients with their £1.6m purchase of an Oast House and separate cottage in rural Kent for multi-generational living. Our clients were able to benefit from multiple dwellings relief, lowering their stamp duty liability.

Acted for landlords and tenants in completing statutory lease extensions. Some of these transactions involved premiums of £142,000, £136,000 and £115,000.

Rebecca has acted for clients in a sale for £1.7m and related purchase for £1.8m property. The property being purchased had complex access issues requiring a statutory declaration and indemnity insurance. It was also listed and had had various unauthorised works carried out to it, requiring a letter of comfort from the listed buildings officer.  The property had an annexe and land so Rebecca had to advise the clients with regard to claiming multiple dwellings relief and mixed use in connection with SDLT.

Acted on the purchase of a Grade II listed property in rural Kent for £1.4 million. The property included an indoor swimming pool, tennis courts and surrounding paddocks. The purchase was a transfer of part; the seller retained an Oast house in the vicinity of the main house. This transaction was complicated by the fact that both properties shared services, such as a drainage system, and therefore new boundaries had to be drawn between the two properties. I visited the property with my client to check the boundaries and discuss their concerns in person.  Additionally, access to the property was via an unadopted and unregistered track to which there were inadequate rights of way. This meant we had to obtain a statutory declaration from the seller and indemnity insurance.  The property was listed and various alterations had been carried out in the past without adequate consent.
