Sittingbourne Family And Property Lawyers

A personal service, from experts — locally

Let’s face it: visiting a solicitor is not something you would normally choose to do. Legal advice is usually sought by individuals when something goes wrong or when the legalities of buying or selling a house need to be seen to. At Ratcliffes Solicitors in Sittingbourne, Kent, we completely understand this and we approach things a little differently than other lawyers.

We have trained and worked at some of the best law firms in the country. This doesn’t make us stuffy or aloof — it gives us the confidence to advise the local people we work for with clarity and certainty.

We’ll treat you as an individual. When you come to see us about a matter that is causing you personal concern and anxiety, you will be met and advised by a highly qualified professional, not a junior lawyer or trainee.

Local, Experienced Lawyers

We value your business, and our fees are competitive. We’ll give you a meaningful low-cost first appointment, providing concrete guidance on your situation and helping you decide on a way forward. The kind of legal services we offer individuals include:

  • Wills and probate — We deal with all matters relating to wills, including disputes over inheritance and offer a cost-effective and efficient service to executors responsible for winding up the estate of a deceased loved one or family member.
  • Family law — In a relaxed environment, we take clients through every stage of the divorce procedure and advise on family finances and issues relating to children.
