“My sister died in England, leaving her flat to be sold. Living in Canada, one can imagine how we didn’t have any idea about the rules governing the conveyance of property. Luckily for us, our solicitor recommended Hilary Beckitt. On completion of the sale and transfer of the property, our estate agent told us that Hilary was “great to work with, proficient and prompt”. Since this was also our experience, we wish to gratefully acknowledge Hilary’s contribution to our peace of mind during a difficult period in our lives.”
