TO WHO IT MAY CONCERN

RE: ESTATE MATTERS

We are a Firm of Solicitors who have used the services of Estate Matters, Rachel Maule and Phillippa Smith on a number of occasions.

We have always found the issues attended to by Estate Matters to be completed in a professional, courteous and timely matter, and with very little input from ourselves other than clear instruction.

To date they have assisted us in the clearance of a number of estate house properties, enabling them to be ready for sale and have also cleared out chattels so the property is ready for sale where our clients have occupied Rest Homes.

We would have no hesitation in recommending their services to other Solicitors, Estate Managers, Professional Trustees and families who require these sort of services.

I can be contacted for a personal reference if necessary.


Yours faithfully
