“Moving house is very stressful, but Rothera Sharp did indeed make it a smooth experience. They could not have been more helpful and extremely professional. I will definitely be recommending them to anyone planning a house move. ”
Jean Hatherley
“Thank you for sorting out my home purchase in due course. Most grateful. ”
Electra Lumaj
“Michelle and Julianne were thorough, professional and proactive-a seamless process. I would have no hesitation in using again. ”
R. Brighty
“Michelle and her team provided an outstanding service and I wouldn't hesitate to use them again. Everything that they said they would do they did. They worked efficiently and honestly and when I compare this experience to that received from other solicitors it is head and shoulders above in standard. Others could learn a lot from Michelle. Thank you so very much in managing so efficiently what was not a straightforward purchase or sale. ”
Claire Peers
“Initially I chose Rothera Dowson because its office location was convenient to where I lived and the estate agents. But after the sympathetic and considerate service provided by both solicitors, I would certainly choose them again. I was comfortable with their attitude and reassured. ”
Michael J Smedley
“The service I received was excellent. In particular Michelle Young was exemplary and I especially valued the way in which she was flexible in seeing me on a couple of occasions when I called in without a prior appointment. ”

Easements: when could an interference arise with my ability to exercise a right of way?

The recent case of Vance & Vance v Collerton & Collerton has illustrated that if it is not unreasonable to insist on the continued luxury of a widely granted right of way, an actionable interference will occur even if the person benefiting from the right is left with reasonable access.
