“My girlfriend and I used Emma Taylor in Yeovil for the purchase of our first house. Emma was very helpful and was always happy to answer any questions that we had. As first time buyers, we were completely clueless about the process however, Emma guided us through every step of the way. When Emma went on holiday Ross Siviter took over the file and we were so pleased with the work that he did whilst Emma was away.

We would definitely use Battens again and would recommend this firm to our family and friends.”

“We recently instructed Emma Taylor and her assistant Emily Crossman to handle the conveyancing of our first time house purchase. We could not fault them or their service in any way. Their approach was both professional and friendly, they worked with speed and efficiency, keeping us updated regularly and quickly addressed any queries and issues. A process which we thought would be extremely stressful was handled with ease and experience. Both Emma and Emily have been absolute stars, helping us to complete in record time and we couldn't recommend them highly enough.”
