Fantastic service from Victoria and the other ladies who assisted us in the office!
We requested the assistance of Victoria just as the country went into lockdown. Although Victoria was working from home at the time of our house sale going through, we felt as though she couldn’t have been more attentive and thorough. We made a comment to family members that Victoria was so efficient and quick in her responses it was as if we were the only people that she was currently dealing with. When you’re purchasing a house for the first time it’s exciting and you want everything to be done quickly , therefore the quick responses were very much appreciated. Also, on the note of being first time buyers, Victoria was very patient with us and explained everything we needed to know, even when we weren’t sure of certain things it was explained to us. We felt very confident in Victorias hands!
I will be sure to recommend John Donkin solicitors to any of my friends who will be purchasing a house in the future.
Our service has been second to none!
We give our sincere thanks to Victoria and everyone who dealt with us! ... Bethany and Jamie :-)

Could not be happier with the service we received from Victoria and Lisa throughout the purchase process of our new home. We were kept well informed throughout and the vast majority of questions we asked were answered almost immediately, if not within 24 hours.

The whole experience was pleasant and we wouldn't hesitate to use/recommend your services again in future. Thanks!

I was extremely happy with how our solicitor handled our selling of our property and buying our new property. Victoria Smith was extremely professional and demanded the best outcome for us as buyers. I found I could always contact her if I had any questions and although we had some problems buying our property, Victoria managed to overcome these problems for us. I would highly recommend her and can’t praise her enough. Thank you.

I can't praise Victoria enough for all her help regarding the sale of my property. She's been extremely helpful and her advice and guidance was exceptional. Victoria kept me up to date with the progress and explained everything in a manner that could be simply understood. I'd also like to thank her again for helping to overcome some issues that arose close to completion. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Victoria - she's a credit to your company.

Hannah has been absolutely superb from start to finish. I have been kept informed of progress throughout the purchase and any requests for information have been very clear and simple to understand. When things became difficult in the purchase due to the sellers solicitor, Hannah was forward thinking and found solutions to the issues that resulted in me being able to meet the requested completion date.

I will now only use John Donkin Solicitors for any future matters and I can't speak highly enough of the team you have in place there.

One very happy customer.

We were so impressed with Victoria’s handling of the sale of our property, 22 Sheridan Green. We have worked with various lawyers around the world and found Victoria was the most thorough, highly focused on our priorities and extremely professional. We have moved to recommend Victoria to other people in Hong Kong currently having issues with property purchase in the U.K., and also to friends and family members. We will certainly look to work with her again on our U.K. property interests going forward.
Thanks,

Cheapest quote I had, initially given conflicting advice re stamp duty however I received a clarification phone call and this was before I even confirmed the case, so I was impressed by the attention to detail. Victoria was very prompt in responding to any queries I had and highlighted many areas for clarification that I would not have picked up. When I visited the office to drop documents off all the staff were pleasant and helpful. Very pleased with the service.

When dealing with Donkin's I found them helpful and professional and every step. It has been some time since I was on the property market and I found they took time with me and explained the process in a very open way. I found all queries, and I had a few, were dealt with quickly and I felt that they genuinely had my best interests in mind. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them.
