“We would just like to say a huge thank you for your excellent handling of the sale of our property. Communication was always clear and timely and at no time did we feel the need to chase anything up."


“I’d just like to say how impressed I have been with your company - the informative initial contact with your colleague, your helpful, knowledgeable manner and ease with which everything was dealt with, was all very reassuring. Unfortunately it’s rare to have such good experiences and it often leaves me thinking my own standards are simply too high, so I’m very happy."


“Hardeep and the team at Carter Read and Dove were fantastic. They were really helpful throughout the buying process, especially when my initial purchase fell through. They guided me through the process to a successful completion - thank you!"


“We are very pleased that our mortgage advisor recommended using CRD for our house purchase, and would highly recommend to others. The team, and Vivienne especially, were great. Very responsive and helpful with our many queries. We were delighted that our purchase went through by our deadline thanks to their hard work. Thanks again"


“I was very impressed by Kelly and how she managed my Executor queries and review. She perfectly understood and met my requirements in a very efficient manner. She provided very useful advice and was professional and courteous throughout. A great asset to Carter Read and Dove. Thank you.”


“Following the passing of my grandmother, Kelly McCarthy at CRD was instructed by ourselves to help administer the estate (having previously prepared my grandparents wills). The scope of what she managed included probate and a house sale amongst other things. The service we received from CRD was always compassionate, kind, efficient, and well informed. Matters were dealt with in a timely manner and the team are very approachable, friendly and above all else extremely professional. I would not hesitate to recommend CRD to my friends and family.”


“From the first phone call, enquiring fees for the purchase of a property, I was very impressed. Very helpful and friendly staff who took the time to explain things thoroughly even before I had chosen to use their services. A massive thank you to Hardeep and Nikki who made for a stress free experience. I was updated throughout the process and they always took the time to answer any questions I had without making me feel rushed or a bother. Will 100% be using them again and highly recommend them.”


“Carter, Read and Dove have been my solicitors since 1986, when Bob Carter carried out the conveyancing on my first house purchase. I have always found them extremely courteous and helpful, with a very reassuring attention to detail. I have recently employed their services to draw up my Will and really appreciated the objective advice I received.”


“Thank you to Bob, Vivienne and Anne for helping me navigate what has been a challenging house selling and buying process. I have used Carter Read and Dove before, and as previously experienced their helpful and friendly service makes the process far easier. I would particularly like to thank Vivienne for her support and continued friendly and professional guidance throughout my sale and purchase.”


“I am very happy with conveyancing service from Carter Read and Dove for the purchase of my first ever property. The process was finished within the window they initially stated which was ideal because I was on a bit of a deadline too. What seemed like a daunting task was made much easier from the guidance I received from Hardeep. She was very professional throughout as well as very friendly too and as a result I would highly recommend CRD if you are in need of a conveyancing solicitor in Swindon or the surrounding area.”


“I’ve used Carter, Read & Dove several times over the past decade for property purchases and been tremendously impressed by their speed, efficiency and attention to detail. When I’ve needed advice, they have always shown wisdom and sound judgment, and ensured that even complicated issues are resolved quickly and with a minimum of fuss. An all-round, excellent firm.”


“Carter Read & Dove are always a great resource to call upon, being highly professional, always providing excellent advice and being human with it !. Always a real pleasure to have CRD on the team and to do business with, highly recommend.”


“Yet again very happy with CRD, this is the second time I have used them when buying / selling my home and they could not be more helpful. All of the staff are very friendly and helpful, happy to answer any questions at any time. As normal during this process problems are found, and I found Bob and he's team very professional and fast in sorting them out. I would happily use them again.”


“The whole process was made seamless and less stressful, as any query or information I needed or wasn't sure of was always answered swiftly either by phone or email and my mind would always be put at ease and I felt like nothing was too much trouble. Things were made increasingly more difficult during COVID 19 lockdown but not from the whole team at Carter Read and Dove , Anne, Vivienne, Laura and Bob, nothing stopped their professionalism, their legal expertise and ensuring that the legal processes still kept on track. Everyone made me feel as part of "the Carter Read and Dove family" I was always treated with honesty, kindness and openness. Thank you, you have made me very happy, I now feel secure in the knowledge that I have everything in place for my future. I would not hesitate to recommend you to friends family or work colleagues. You are amazing and take the stress and worry out of legal processes. Thank you!”


“We recently used Carter Read and Dove for the sale and purchase of our homes. The service we received from Hardeep and the team was excellent – all our questions and concerns were answered and dealt with quickly and in a very friendly manner. This really made the house sale and purchase process much less stressful! We would not hesitate to recommend Hardeep and the team for Conveyancing, we received a very friendly, personal and professional service.”
