Clients of Watson Ramsbottom know: We are Human. We’ve Got Your Back.

The practice was formed following the merger in 2003 between Watsons Solicitors of Darwen and Ramsbottom & Co with offices in Darwen, Great Harwood and Blackburn. We later acquired Carters Solicitors in Pontefract, Quinn and Co in Chorley and Steele & Son with Bagot Heyes, which has offices in Clitheroe and Barnoldswick.  All of our offices have been established in their respective areas for decades and have acted for generations of clients to provide solutions for whatever the legal problem.

Our staff understand clearly the additional considerations required when dealing with a property that is not yet built, and have detailed knowledge of the processes and requirements not as prevalent in second hand homes. We also have in depth knowledge of the various schemes designed to support the purchase of new build properties such as Help to Buy and Shared Ownership.

We are now recommended solicitors for most of the largest national developers in their Northwest and Yorkshire regions and also a number of regional developers.

Feedback from clients in overwhelmingly positive, with 97% of clients surveyed in 2022 rating our service as Good or Excellent, and the same figure stating they would be likely to recommend Watson Ramsbottom to others.
