    Recently Peter and his legal team acted on our behalf when we sold our home. The process turned out to be quite complex and stressful. Settlement finally took place. Peter and the staff of Kilpatrick Hatton Solicitors at all times were upfront and honest and communicated in a timely fashion with us. I note a poor Google review levelled against Peter. This was by the purchasers of our property. Peter acted on our instructions, after careful consideration of all options, as a solicitor is required to do. There was absolutely nothing deceitful in his or our actions.

    We recently used Peter, Amanda and Alana for conveyancing services when purchasing our first home, they made the whole process so easy and straightforward which is helpful as a first home buyer.

    I highly recommend Peter, Carolyn and the Team at Kilpatrick Hatton. They don't charge like a wounded bull, and no question is too silly, no request beyond their capabilities. They have represented us for many years now – buying, selling, wills – you name it. Patient, affordable, readily available – what more could you ask for?
  • Avatar Simon Boyle ★★★★★ a year ago
    Recently we turned to Peter Kilpatrick to assist us review and update our Wills, Power of Attorney and Enduring Guardianship. Peter's experience shone through via his approachable yet consultative approach. Including recommending similar documents (especially the Enduring Guardianship) be established for our 19 year old daughter, something we hadn't even considered. We highly recommend Peter and Kilpatrick Hatton for their comprehensive services.

    Kilpatrick Hatton Solicitors went above and beyond during my recent property purchase. They senselessly handled the conveyancing process from start to finish, kept me informed every step of the way and were always there to answer any questions I had.
    I can’t recommend them highly enough.
