“Just sold our house and James Vernor-Miles was brilliant. Efficient and knowledgeable. No messing around. A text book transaction by a 'go to' lawyer.”

- Client for a property sale

“As a first time buyer I couldn't have asked for a more supportive and efficient solicitor to represent me. James was beyond helpful and responsive and was always happy to respond to my (necessary and sometimes unnecessary) emails. I would use Hunters again in a heartbeat.”

- First time property buyer

“We worked with Hunters to both sell our house and buy a flat in central London. James was absolutely terrific - he dealt with everything for us, made sure we fully understood the pros and cons of every decision which we needed to take, and made us feel extremely well looked after. We will certainly continue to rely on Hunters for any legal needs we might have.”

- Client for a property sale and purchase

“I had fantastic experience with James and his team who supported me and gave me excellent advice on the journey of buying my first property. His expertise and thoroughness ended up saving me a huge amount of money - I would highly recommend Hunters for a friendly and highly effective service.”

- First time property buyer

“A real tower of strength when the almost-buyer came up with the idea of halving his offer. Without your determination to out-stare him I might well have agreed to split the difference with him.”
