Quite a lot of the communication is carried out by email which makes things move more smoothly and also the team are very quick to respond by telephone to answer any queries. Always very polite and very helpful. Would recommend them.

Adam Ali from the Beverley branch has been imperative to my house sale. It hasn't been the most straightforward of sales however Adam understood how important the completion was done on time and supported this all the way through. He was always on hand by email or phone even when I was chasing this frequently throughout the day. Thank you Adam


We couldn't fault the service, Adam Ali always responded immediately to our enquiries and kept us up to date at all times, he also explained everything very carefully to us. We were extremely impressed with the service, thank you.

Got referred to them from Nationwide Building Society - superb, they are very prompt and attention to detail is beyond expectations. Better than my previous solicitors.

Quality Solicitors Lockings Hull were recommended by Estate Agents in East London, in February 2016, to carry out the conveyancing for us in the purchase of a leasehold flat. After a shaky start with poor communication from Lockings, Stephen Dettman, Senior Technical Solicitor, took over our file.

Since then Stephen has been fantastic, sorting out the legal side of our purchase including ensuring that the three leases titles involved , some of which were incorrect and out of date at times of previous sales of the flat, are all now correct. He has also overseen the legal negotiations of a new lease extension for us. At all times he has been exceptionally professional and has worked very hard on our behalf for over a year, dealing with other solicitors and agencies with great efficiency. He has been very proactive and always had deadlines firmly under control, dealing with things well in advance. The whole process has seemed very complicated to us, but Stephen has always made himself available and taken the time to explain, with great patience (often more than once), everything to us in detail by phone and email.

We are extremely grateful to him, and are sure we would not have had such a successful outcome without his professional help and support.

"It has been a pleasure to receive letters from a lawyer written in plain English!"

Mr C Campbell

"We recently acquired a block of nine flats at auction with the intention of refurbishing and subsequently selling them off individually… Rachelle Laisnez handled the drafting of a new master lease, a new right of way which we required, and the creation of the management limited company, as well as the subsequent sales of the flats. This was a relatively complex undertaking which has been handled very efficiently by Rachelle.. "

Chris and Anne Brack, Kevin and Sue Miller

"[Regarding]…the drafting of a new Lease for a long term tenant in our family business property, Rachelle Laisnez kept in regular contact with us by both phone and email and we have been very impressed with the work she has undertaken and negotiations she has made…"

"We were very pleased with the way the lease was dealt with. It was quick and efficient and we were kept fully informed of every detail throughout the proceedings. The whole procedure was done in a very friendly manner."

"Sheena is immensely practical and pro-active. She gets the job done without fuss and with confidence. She's very reliable and has bags of experience."


"Sheena is fabulous! Always effecient and thorough in her approach, it makes the entire process seem a walk in the park."

"Sheena on the conveyancing team is great and always there to answer any questions. Very friendly. Would recommend."


"I would absolutely recommend Lockings and Sheena Taylor in particular. The service is fast, friendly and efficient - nothing is ever too much trouble. Excellent service!"

"With conveyancing services you only realise the importance of having a good lawyer when it became more complicated than originally expected; which seems to be most times! QS Lockings were great throughout my sale & purchase. But when things got difficult Lesley was an absolute rock – always one step ahead of the 2 other law firms in the chain, and there for me with sensible, calm advice. She did just what you look for in a great lawyer – she lifted the stress from me. I received an excellent service at a very reasonable price - and I'm glad I did not make the mistake of going for an online bargain basement service." 

John - Yell.com

"Sarah Barry at Quality Solicitors Lockings really helped me during what was a difficult time. Dealing with my late mothers estate on both a personal and practical level was feeling overwhelming until the day I walked in to their office in Hessle. From day one I was given a personal service, they spoke to me in language I understood and made all the jargon in the paperwork I had been dealing with suddenly make sense! The whole process was smooth, efficient and professional and much quicker than I had expected. Using this firm for my probate matter has meant that I would not have considered going anywhere else to deal with the resulting sale of the property and I have also booked in with them to arrange my own will. I could not recommend this firm highly enough."


"Me and my wife have just finished buying our first property, so we were both nervous because we didn't understand the process but quality solicitors Lockings just made Everthing so simple and easy. Very polite staff when I phoned them. Most of the contact was done via emails again making it much easier. The whole team was just a breath of fresh air and would definelty use them again and recommend them to freinds and family. Thank you again to mr Ricketts and his team. Thank you very much."

"My family have used Lockings for many years. when we had a bereavement last year they were extremely sensitive and supportive and helped enormously by taking the stress out of the legal spaghetti with a fully inclusive service."

Ann Merrick - Yell.com

"We were recommended to Lockings to deal with our business. Lockings kept us fully informed throughout the process by post, by email, by text and by phone let down only by the absense of a carrier pidgeon! Excellent service and competitive fees, would recommend."

"Being a first time buyer I was unsure on some of the stages of buying a house. QSL helped me at every step of the way and answered all my questions in a quick, friendly and professional way. The online case tracking system meant I was kept up to date with all the information I needed to make it a quick and easy transaction. Will be using again when I buy my next house."

They have been involved in our Make a Will appeal, as well as individual staff fundraising including participation in our annual Lock up Your Boss. The support we have had, both in office, and through sponsorship, has been instrumental in allowing the Make a Will appeal to grow and be the success that it is for the hospice. Quality Solicitors Lockings have processed in excess of 100 wills on behalf of our supporters in their time as charity partners and we have received nothing but positive feedback."

"I have recommended several of my clients onto Lockings, who are purchasing and selling their properties and all have received a very professional service from them. Clients have informed me that they have been impressed with their dealings with Lockings and thanked me for the recommendation to them. I have no hesitation in recommending them to my clients for their conveyancing needs."


"I contacted Andrew McBirnie as a result of recommendation of a fellow professional to act in respect of employment rights issues. From the initial meeting I felt confident that he had the knowledge, experience and confidence to resolve these issues to my benefit. Throughout the process, Mr McBirnie has been readily contactable, approachable, proactive and has provided comprehensive understandable advice and information. The initial consultation has a fixed fee but thereafter I found the pricing structure to be reasonable and transparent which was reassuring throughout a stressful period. I would not hesitate to recommend these solicitors....although I hope not to need them again!"


"I rang qualitysolicitors lockings and they recommended the meet a legal expert. The cost of this was very reasonable and Sarah gave me good advice and she used plain English ! Overall I was very pleased with their service and would recommend them. Thanks Sarah!"

"We used Quality Solicitors Lockings conveyancing for the recent purchase of a rental property. There was quite a lot of work to do as the situation was complex with the property and everyone involved, but somehow it was all sorted within a few weeks - weeks faster than expected! Plus, they were a pleasure to deal with and never needed to be prompted. Many thanks."

"We didn’t have any experience as first time buyers. We went with QSL because they were friendly, professional and very informative. We received all the necessary correspondence we needed and I didn’t have to chase them at any point. We were regularly kept up to date with the progress of our house buy. Our completion was smooth and efficient and I wouldn’t hesitate to use QSL again and recommend them to friends and family." 


"I am so glad that I have chosen QualitySolicitors, you guys are really quality solicitors, very professionals and updating me about every bits and pieces."

"We were directed to QS Lockings by our mortgage provider and found their service to be second to none. After our initial house move fell through, we decided on a change and had no hesitation in re-appointing them even though it meant we would incur an additional charge from the bank in question. The member of staff dealing with our case was professional, polite and friendly. Any concerns or questions we had were responded to quickly and she was always available to assist us when necessary We would definitely use them again and recommend their services to anyone."

"I have been using Lockings since 1987. They have acted on my behalf when selling and purchasing several homes, making wills, and recently sorted out power of attorney for my husband and I. My daughter is in the process of purchasing her first home through Lockings. I have great confidence in them and I wouldn't use anyone else. I would greatly recommend them to anyone needing legal assistance."
