What Our Clients Say

I had an outstanding experience with Sam Hawking Lawyers for the sale of my property in Carmarthen Road. They were prompt with emails, good with all communications, put me at ease and made all aspects of the sale straightforward. They were on time with completion and were on the go at all times. I can highly recommend their services.

I used Sam Hawkings for property conveyancing for a house in Carmarthenshire. I work abroad which was no problem for the firm. Great professional and friendly service throughout. Any problem we encountered was dealt with perfectly so I can’t thank the team enough. Special thanks to Rhodri and Julia for making the process as good as it gets! Much appreciated.

February 2024- Alan Kipping, London

We have been using Sam Hawking for the last few years and have been very happy with the service that we have received. We have just sold some properties at auction and yet again James and Nia have been excellent. Nia in particular has kept us informed of all the stages of the sales and her communication skills are second to none (sadly not an attribute that many other solicitors that we have tried, have!) Thank you again James and Nia.
February 2024- Mike Webberley, Cardiff

Rhodri at Sam Hawking acted for us on the sale of our old house and purchase of our new property. I found him extremely helpful and more than anything else available to speak to me on nearly every occasion that I called the office. As well as providing a brilliant service it was very good value for money compared to other solicitors. I highly recommend Rhodri and the team at Sam Hawking.
January 2024- Daniel Morgan, Tenby

Many thanks to James & Nia for their help & support, during a complicated sale. My first sale fell through and a property I wanted to buy. This lengthened the process, but they were able to bring everything together in the end, despite the complications. I am very grateful to James. This is not the first time I have used him, due to his professionalism

We looked around for a solicitor to help us with purchasing a property and heard wonderful things about Sam Hawking Property Lawyers, we dealt with Emily Mogford who, from the first phone call, was outstanding throughout. She made the process smooth and calm at what usually would be a stressful time. We also used Sam Hawking Property Lawyers to deal with the sale of our home, to which Emily also dealt with, simultaneously to the purchase of our new home, they truly were the strongest link in the chain we were in, and dealt with it quickly and professionally, answering all of our questions in great detail, ensuring everything was done as it should be. We can’t thank Emily and the company enough for everything, just in time for Christmas.

October 2023- Jane Cockerill, London

Amazing service. I had very limited time to complete as the sellers of the property that I had originally wanted to buy, had pulled out. With the original mortgage offer still being available for only couple of months, we managed to complete another property with the help and relentless work of Lisa and Nicola. I’ve managed to keep my original mortgage rate and I am massively grateful and I can’t thank or recommend them enough.

October 2023- Svetomir Stamenkovic, London

I am thrilled with the help, support, and professionalism provided by Kate Cursons; thanks to her, our family received the keys to our new home . This is a monumental day for us, one filled with joy and gratitude, and a lot of it is owed to her hard work, persistence, and dedication.

Kate’s expertise and guidance made all the difference. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you Kate for being an instrumental part of this journey. We are immensely grateful.

October 2023- Rita and Paulo, Swansea

My partner and I have recently bought our first home with Lisa acting as our solicitor! Lisa was absolutely outstanding, so supportive, reassuring, patient, diligent and professional throughout the whole process. She made sure that everything ran super smoothly and was always happy to answer our questions with a comforting smile. In addition to this, she was extremely assiduous and ensured that everything was covered in a timely manner. I honestly cannot recommend Lisa and her colleagues at Sam Hawking enough and I would strongly suggest that anybody in the process of buying a property seek out their services. We are so thankful to Lisa and the team.

June 2023 – Cellan Williams, Cardiff

Amazing Service!
I  highly  recommend  using  Sam  Hawking  Property  Lawyers,
Buying  my  first  property  post  pandemic  in  the  current  times , I  was  expecting  delays, hiccups,  and  a  continued  backlog  between  all  parties  involved.
I  personally  dealt  with  Julia  &  Beth  and  they  both  went  above  and  beyond, from  the  speed  of  response  to  emails,  phone  calls  and  making  sure  that  all things  were  on  track  for  completion  day!
From  assigning  them  as  my  solicitor  to  completion  day  took  8  weeks!!
I  am  forever  grateful  for  their  service  provided  and  I’d  highly recommend and  use  them  as  my  solicitor  choice  moving  forward

June 2023 – Jordan  Roberts,  Swansea Valley

Bought my first house with SH and many thanks to Nicola and Lisa who have been superb. House conveyancing took 3 months which was fantastic considering I needed a mortgage. The support, diligence and speedy responses from Lisa and Nicola Jones was amazing. I had a great experience and would go to them first if I ever need to in future.

June 2023- Anees Ahmed, Birmingham

Kate  handled  my  case  with  great  professionalism  and  was  able  to  bring  my completion  date  forward  considerably  to  allow  me  to  start  the  move-in process  even  sooner  than  planned.  As  a  first  time  buyer  I  found  myself asking  questions  regularly  which  Kate  was  always  happy  to  answer.

Highly  recommended!
Thank  you  Kate.

I had the pleasure of working with Lisa and the team in a purchase of a new property . Something I was  very nervous about as I’m getting  older.
Lisa and the team at Sam Hawking took the stress away and any worries I had. I was kept up to date  regularly by Lisa and the team and the turn around was very fast . It was a pleasure to have been  working with them.I would strongly recommend Sam Hawking for any property needs.March 2023- Chris  Griffiths,  Port Talbot

Lyla has seen us through the, sometimes grueling, process of selling 5 rental properties, over the past 18 months. I cannot sing her praises enough as she gives a very friendly, competent and professional service.
I would like to thank her for her hard work, tenacity and patience! She has been wonderful.
March 2023- Nicky Cooper, Oxfordshire

As a property investor, Sam Hawking are my ‘go to’ solicitors and have been for 6 years now. They’ve been incredibly supportive. They’re extremely knowledgeable and nothing seems to faze them. I cannot recommend them highly enough.
January 2023- Andie Spragg, Bristol

Have bought six houses over the years and the solicitors have all been found at best inefficient. sam hawking at cross hands is the first that has not been found wanting. Friendly, and easy to work with, phones answered, call backs actioned, emails responded to, they are now my go to legals.

January 2023- Clive Hares, Llanelli

I’ve been using Sam Hawking over the years having run a portfolio career involving property investing. They are efficient, quick, responsive to all communications. Worth using specialist solicitors if you want to get things done! Thank you to Lisa, Nicola and the team!

December 2022- Kristel del Rosario, London


Very professional and efficiant local company. Would highly recommend Charlene Jenkins and her team at Sam Hawking Property Lawyers Cross Hands. They did a fantastic job on the convveyencing on our first buy to let, keeping us well informed on the progress of our purchase by answering any queries and calls promptly. Many thanks
September 2022- David Williams, Cross Hands

Iv been using Sam Hawking for the last 6 months with purchases, refinances and auction legal pack check overs. They have been very helpful and especially Sophie. Nothing has been too much bother even reading over legal packs on the final day of bidding. This has been so helpful as it has meant I can bid on as much as possible even when other lots bid over my top end purchase figure. Thank you Sam and team.
September 2022- Thomas Russell, Cardiff

We are delighted to have completed another successful transaction via James and Lyla at Sam Hawking. Their skill and professionalism is always greatly appreciated and we would highly recommend them.

August 2022- Nisha Stevens, London


Due to the Covid pandemic our purchase was put on hold for almost 4 months. We only had 2 months left on our mortgage offer so were under pressure to get everything done. Lisa assured us that this would not be a problem, and delivered on that assurance! She did a great job of completing the purchase and remained professional, friendly and reassuring throughout the process. I would highly recommend Sam Hawking Property Lawyers.

Couldn’t recommend enough. I dealt with Lisa and Rebecca of the Port Talbot branch for my house buy, as a first time buyer they and the company were extremely helpful, supportive and took the time to answer all my questions (and there were a lot of them!). Competitive fees and extremely helpful and knowledgeable staff, extremely happy with my experience and service!

I heard about Sam Hawking Property Lawyers after receiving a leaflet through the door. I was very satisfied with their services and they were friendly and efficient at all times.

I have used other Solicitors for similar matters but found Sam Hawking Property Lawyers much better in comparison. I was very satisfied with the service I received which was very prompt and professional.
18.11.18 – Kevin Morgan – Port Talbot
Sam Hawking was conveniently situated for us as we used the office in Crosshands. We were very satisfied with their service and all the staff were pleasant and approachable. We also liked the fact that their staff spoke Welsh.
