Cullen Kilshaw Solicitors & Estate Agents
A Changing of the Guard
Published: April 2018
Haddon & Turnbull and Charles & RB Anderson came together as a law practice in 1995, but continued to trade under their established names for historical reasons - both firms having been in existence for well over 150 years. Following the recent merger, they have now both traded under the Cullen Kilshaw banner for almost a year, and Nigel Hall, the resident partner who joined the Hawick office of Haddon & Turnbull in 1984 is now about to hang up his gown at the end of April and head off into a well-earned retirement. Haddon & Turnbull had been a fixture in the town over many decades, and Nigel’s reputation built up over many years heading the firm as a highly capable and yet approachable rural practitioner speaks for itself.
A Free Pre Sale Valuation, No Strings Attached!

If you believed everything you see on the telly, you would think you could sell your house quickly and easily on the web, and that it would cost you nothing these days. There are now loads of internet providers, all competing with one another to advertise your property on the web along with thousands of other houses all across the country for a knock-down fixed price. So where is the catch? What the web based agents don’t tell you, of course, is that if you want to use your own local solicitor to carry out the legal work, you need to pay the Home Report, the estate agency fees charged by the internet agent and all advertising costs up front before your house is even on the market, and if they can’t sell your house, you have to sit about and wait for a full year before they will give you back their fee.
