Established over 100 years ago, we have worked hard to combine the best parts of our traditional values with a modern, forward-thinking approach. We are not just efficient in the way that we work; we are caring and sympathetic to your needs. This is precisely what keeps our clients so happy, and it’s how we’ve managed to exceed people’s expectations time and time again.

During the current pandemic we have continued to service the needs of our clients with many staff working remotely. Our offices are now manned during offices hours and visitors can attend our offices by appointment. Unless there is a medical reason we request the wearing of a face covering/mask during such visit. We thank you for your co-operation.

Absolutely amazing!

“Couldn’t fault the service at all! From start to finish they were very fast and efficient leaving no stone unturned in regards to our purchase. We had complete faith that everything was being taken care of and they kept us up to date with progress on a regular basis. Couldn’t recommend enough and will use again if we come to buy or resell. A big thank you to Alastair and Keeley and veitch penny as a whole”


Speed and Courtesy

“Alastair was introduced to me via a business contact and is courteous and warm. Gave clear concise advice, is punctual to meetings, and is always very responsive to emails which is imperative in today’s world. His approach is non stuffy and modern… a two line email sometimes suffices instead of a formal letter four days later via snail mail! Some solicitors in the area haven’t moved with the times… well done Veitch Penny for understanding that times have changed and methods of communication need to reflect that.”

Fantastic Company With Perfect Customer Service

As new home buyers we wasn’t 100% sure how everything works on the legal side but Wendy was fantastic. She made sure we clearly understood everything that we needed to know and made sure that everything was how it should be. Wendy was easy to contact whenever we needed to ask a quick question and she would answer it there and then.

Perfect job!

I had several meetings with Ms Lesley Austen over the period of some weeks, whilst my son was back from University to spend Christmas at home. We were preparing both mine and his Will. Lesley was amazing, extremely professional, we went through the several steps of the process and it was all perfectly done after three weeks or so.

After that service, I went back to Veitch Penny to consult this time a solicitor on property affairs. It is already the fifth time that I am using Veitch Penny’s services and I am very happy with their help and expertise at all times. Actually  I couldn’t refer them more!


Veitch Penny provided excellent service throughout our difficult house move. it was always easy to contact them by phone, E-mail or even in person, a wonderful personal service. We couldn’t recommend Veitch Penny highly enough.

Thank You

Dear Alastair,

I hope you don’t mind me contacting you directly but I want to commend Lucy Pillinger for a job well done. Lucy has been of great help in conveyancing for the sale of my house and made the process easy and efficient. In particular, her clear and prompt communication was appreciated, as was her helpful and positive attitiude, which persisted in the face of unexpected hold-ups. On the basis of her sterling work I would not hesitate to recommend Veitch Penny. Many thanks to the firm for your excellent service.

kind regards

Dr Steve
