  • Just sold and purchased a house with Tallents and they were brilliant. Always responded quickly and knew exactly what stage we were at. Made it as straightforward as possible. Clear pricing so no hidden costs. Cannot recommend enough.

  • Dear Sarah, I just wanted to thank you for all your hard work, compassion & professionalism – all of which have been exemplary. It has been such a sad matter to deal with Helen’s estate & you have made it considerably easier. Once again, thank you.

  • I've just bought my first house and I couldn't be happier with the service I recieved from Tallents. Rebecca was really helpful and always got back to me so quickly! There was some issues with the other side but Rebecca did everything she could do ensure it all went through on time but that I also wasn't rushed. Would definitely recommend them to friends and family and would use again.

  • We would both like to take this opportunity to thank you for your kind help and assistance regarding the earlier will and subsequent probate matters relating to our late relative. You have been a great support to us both during this difficult and tedious time. Thank you once more.

  • Couldn’t fault Tallents. Their service was second to non. Rebecca was always on the ball with our sale. Her secretary Gabrielle. Brilliant. Pleasant. Professional and very quick in replying to my queries. Will definitely use Tallents again.

  • We have recently moved into our first property and Rebecca has been a god send ! In the current climate delays are to be expected but Rebecca kept us updated the whole way through and made the whole process as stress free as possible, especially when buying your first home can seem quite daunting.She has been thorough yet timely , and answered any queries we had along the way. I will most certainly be using Rebecca again for any future matters !

  • Just a short note to express my sincere thanks to your personal involvement at Nottingham yesterday. It has been a truly difficult period for me personally, but one that required strength and support from a legal professional to deliver nothing but the best; and that you did.

  • Mat is my solicitor. Shout out to him for helping me get my baby back!!! So thankful. Been there since day 1 quite literally, giving me "dad chats" when I needed telling and things. It's amazing how much he has done for me because if it wasn't for him I wouldn't be where I am. And shout out to everyone else there who just used to let me sit in the waiting area when I used to turn up hours before my appointment and offering me coffees and that. You are all amazing and I will be forever greatful for what you have done for me. On to a better life with my daughter now!!

  • Hi Helen, as your work with me is now coming to an end, I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your support.  As time went on, I grew to trust your judgement and advice 100%, particularly around keeping emotions out of the response emails etc. and focusing on the facts and figures. Be assured that I would have no problems in recommending you to friends should the need arise. Thanks, P

  • I just thought I would send you this as I wanted to say thank you to you as having met you at Southwell the other day after feeling so upset  I wanted to say how incredibly helpful, approachable and understanding your support has made me feel and that there is light at the end of the tunnel with what’s happened. People are always so quick to complain and I felt it important to say thank you to you…so thank you so much Helen.
