Chris Dewhurst


Residential Property

Chris believes in developing good and lasting relationships with his clients. He likes to work by client recommendation and the earning of the respect of other property professionals.

Chris has over 25 years of post qualification experience in residential conveyancing. He feels that in property transactions it is essential to have a clear focussed and objective driven approach to enable the exchange of contracts at the earliest opportunity. To him conveyancing is a process underpinned by effective communication.

Chris feels privileged to have had a broad base to his practice experience which he can draw upon to promote more successful and secure transactions. He believes in a straight forward and confident approach.

Chris Studied law at both the University College of Wales and Chester Law College, qualifying as a solicitor in 1997 with a law firm based in Liverpool City Centre. He spent many years practicing in Oxfordshire and Berkshire either in senior legal roles or as a partner before moving recently to Kent, an area which he greatly loves. His earlier legal life was spent in general practice undertaking a wide variety of property matters, including domestic and commercial conveyancing, planning, environmental law, litigation and probate/wills/powers of attorney.

Chris is based at our Canterbury office.

Chris looked after me in a compassionate and professional way. I would recommend him to anybody.
Chris has been my solicitor for many years, helping me with a variety of matters. I have absolute confidence in his ability and approach.
I've had the absolute pleasure of having Chris Dewhurst as my solicitor for the purchase of a property. Along with his fantastic colleague, they have both managed to achieve the impossible by getting me over the finish line for completion in a record breaking 7 weeks. They have gone above and beyond their call of duty. Chris' conveyancing knowledge is phenomenal and the speed and expertise by which they actioned the purchase was mind blowing. They were always available, always very forthright and honest with any queries and overall such a fantastic team.

Chris's assistant Debbie was always on hand as well, with a lightening fast response time and always able to answer any questions that I had. I honestly could not recommend both a solicitor and firm highly enough. Outstanding value for money. I am forever grateful that I came across Girlings Solicitors. Thank you!
