“Having just moved to East Sussex from Cheshire and looking to sell a property in Cheshire, we wanted to appoint a local Solicitor.
With no previous experience of Solicitors in the area, we googled local Solicitors as part of our research.
Nelson McLean stood out as a friendly approachable company and we appointed them to handle the Sale…best decision we could have made.
From first contact through to completion, they were very professional, approachable and very friendly. More importantly there was no Solicitor jargon.
We are now more than happy to refer to Nelson McLean as our family solicitor and will continue to use them in the future. We have already recommended them to family.
Thanks to all at Nelson McLean”Best decision we could have made Joan & Eric Northiam

“After having instructed Nelson McLean to progress the sale of my property, I can honestly say that I could not have asked for a more professional, transparent and efficacious level of service. The speed of communication and the tenacity to pursue outstanding issues regarding the sale was impressive and matched by the friendly and no-nonsense attitude by everyone at the firm.

“We are delighted to recommend the services of Nelson McLean. Our recent house move was so much less stressful than previous painful experiences, and this was entirely due to the wonderful Stevie and Ethan who dealt with everything so efficiently and informatively. As law firms go these people are so much more human. Being able to correspond by email to save time, and to actually discuss matters over the phone with someone when circumstances became difficult made all the difference. We would have no hesitation in using Nelson McLean again, and would definitely recommend to others.”We would have no hesitation in using Nelson McLean again, and would definitely recommend to others Sue & Pete Welfare
Thanks to you for giving us such a good service! Very efficient and helpful!

“It is generally accepted now that moving house is one of the most stressful procedures that we have to face these days. However this stress can be reduced a great deal if the people dealing on the property sellers/buyers behalf do so in a professional, friendly and efficient manner, giving both help and advice when needed. My wife and I would like to convey our appreciation to all those at Nelson McLean who dealt with our conveyancing recently. On reflection we now appreciate that the business of selling our previous house, and the purchase of our new home here in Devon was completed in an acceptable time frame, however this did not prevent me visiting your offices regularly and no doubt appearing frustrated at what appeared at times to be slow progress.
My wife and I now appreciate that Anne, Stevie and everyone else at Nelson McLean not only completed all the necessary administration in a prompt and professional manner but did so with good humour, providing guidance and advice as necessary, ensuring our home move was completed entirely to our satisfaction. We would certainly engage your services again if required and would also have no hesitation in recommending you to others seeking a lawyer’s help.
My wife and I are back in Kent for a few days early in October and if possible will pop in and thank you all again personally.”Completed entirely to our satisfaction Peter Saxby

I can’t thank them enough and am already recommending them to family and friends.”Work above and beyond just being my solicitor Carole (and Pete) Bishop
Dear Ethan Marshall,
Thank you so much for the extremely efficient service you provided over the purchase of my new home. Everything was done in a very professional manner with a minimum of fuss and maximum speed. I was anxious to complete the purchase quickly – I instructed you on the 4th of October and had, by the end of the next working day, received 6 documents from you, including the draft contract, for my consideration. I was enormously impressed; as well as lifting my spirits you gave me the comfort of clear legal explanations and provided advice over when and how I needed to put safeguards in place. By the 18th October you had received back the necessary searches and completion took place on November 8th, just over 6 weeks after I had instructed you over conveyance. This was an achievement for which I shall always be grateful.
I should mention that other members of staff were always available and able to stand in at times when you were not in the office and the good communications and team work displayed by Nelson McLean as a whole were equally impressive. I have already recommended you twice to friends considering moving and would do so again without any hesitation,Sarah Baverstock
“About my 11th move and have never been so impressed by a firm of solicitors as Nelson Mclean. Please thank all involved.”never been so impressed Mr MAP
Nelson McLean are to be highly commended for their professional, knowledgable and personal service they offered us in our recent house move. This process which was complicated and difficult for all sorts of reasons was efficiently dealt with and with good humour (Thank you Stevie!!). I spend a lot of time dealing with law firms through my job but will not be using anyone else for conveyancing. Recommended!Recommended! John Buckles
“This is my 12th move, & hopefully my last. Over the years, one of the biggest problems I have found is being advised, or as often is the case, not being advised, on how proceedings on a Sale & Purchase are progressing, and having to chase the solicitor for an update on progress, often waiting for a response.
Thanks to modern communications, I was pleasantly surprised to be kept informed with automatic copies of all relevant correspondence, resulting in the worries & stress of moving being heavily reduced, enabling me to often advise my purchaser what was holding things up. The use of a central Conveyancing Manager as a contact point was an added bonus, if I wished to discuss any matter with the Sale or Purchase.
I was highly impressed & satisfied with my dealings with Nelson McLean, in the modern & professional way my affairs were handled”highly impressed & satisfied PCM, Cambridgeshire
“Nelson McLean are a superb team. Having bought and sold several properties over the last few years we have often been frustrated by not knowing what is happening.Superb team William and Sheila Oakes
Our recent sale and purchase was quite complex for several reasons, and protracted as the bottom of the chain broke twice. However we were kept updated constantly and copied into every communication both up and down the chain. We have never been so well informed. Both vendors and purchasers solicitors were quite difficult and Nelson McLean dealt with them robustly with our best interests at heart. We would recommend them to anyone, as very approachable, nothing ever too much trouble for them, and sound professional advice.”
“Thank you so much again for all your assistance and grateful thanks also for your advice and patience. Above all though, I’m grateful for the firm’s speedy efficiency in dealing with my tenant’s lease, the sale of the building and the purchase of the cottage. You came highly recommended by the agents and I shall certainly be singing your praises in the future. “Speedy efficiency Claire H

I really cannot thank you enough and I will be pleased to continue my association with Nelson McLean until the end of time!”simply superb John Wilkinson
“When it came to the sale of my house in East Sussex, I immediately went to Nelson McLean to seek their advice and I cannot recommend them too highly!
“Throughout the sale they were extremely helpful, always available to reassure me and answer my questions. Being recently widowed and not very good at reading the small print, or filling out forms, they couldn’t have been more supportive in, what turned out to be, a fairly protracted sale.
“They are a delightful firm of solicitors who exude a personal warmth, which translates into a very professional but sympathetic service.
