Matthew and Sinead Lovatt

Our experience with Felton McKnight has been a very positive one, not only because of the professionalism and extreme efficiency. They are very thorough in their work, and do not let the least detail go by. Being foreigners, having moved to Dublin less than a year ago, they were always there to answer our questions and guide us in the best possible ways. It is a pleasure working with Felton McKnight and they give us the peace of mind that we are in good professional Irish hands.

Alan and Caroline Foster

On deciding to sell our house, Bernadette and I made use of the services Felton McKnight. We essentially worked with Deirdre Hartley who brought us through the entire process seamlessly. We knew from the outset exactly what documentation would be required throughout and received regular updates on progress. Over our thirty five years in professional practice, we cannot recall a time when a personal legal transaction was dealt with so professionally by diligent, focused and wonderfully pleasant individuals such as we encountered with Deirdre and Mark of Felton McKnight.

Colum Ó'Broin

We recently bought our “forever home” in Delgany and like a lot of house sales it all moved incredibly quickly and we were under some pressure to turn everything around within a matter of weeks in order to ensure we got the house and could meet the vendors asks so they could move on their new home. Having the expertise of FeltonMcKnight on hand ensured we were able to satisfy those requirements and close on the house within a matter of weeks. The proactive and consistently professional approach from Deirdre and the team at Felton McNight removed a lot of stress and made the whole transaction, from our perspective, a very simple process. We would highly recommend using these local and very accessible firm.

Felton McKnight were most helpful and efficient during a recent property conveyancing transaction. I felt that Deirdre and Mark always had my best interests in mind, especially during some financial transactions. With all the Covid restrictions in place, the work and especially communications were not affected, during these difficult times. I would have no hesitation in recommending their services, and their fees were competitively priced.
