Ann Hines

Executive Conveyancer - Residential Conveyancing

What do you do?

I have been a residential conveyancer since 1985 and I take my clients through the process of buying and selling or letting and renting residential properties.

Why do your clients like working with you?

I am approachable and friendly and I have a wealth of experience in residential property work. Property transactions are rarely straightforward, but I make a point of reassuring my clients and keeping them calm when matters experience those inevitable twists and turns.

Why do you love your job?

I get to meet clients of all ages and from all walks of life and, since 1985, I have acted for thousands of people. Some of my clients come to me directly from local agents and others are recommended by people for whom I have acted in the past. A house quickly becomes a home and I love being able to turn my clients’ dreams into reality.

  • The stressful process of selling a property was eased by Ann Hines, who acted as my conveyancer. She is incredibly professional and was easily contactable - responding to all of my many email enquiries promptly and efficiently. She kept me informed of the progress of my sale throughout. I would not hesitate to recommend her or to have her act on my behalf again. Thank you Ann.




  • We were given Ann Hines details by Abode Estate Agents. It was very easy for contact.

  • Ann has very often had to take on tasks that other parties' (less experienced or quite frankly, incompetent) lawyers should have done, simply to get things over the line. If you want an easily-accessible, knowledgeable, pragmatic and proactive conveyancer - choose Ann Hines. We could not recommend Ann Hines more highly and she will be the first conveyancer we call should we ever have the stomach to move house again!!

  • When considering a law firm, please do not just consider the fees, but also consider the person that will have day-to-day responsibility for your transaction, how accessible they are and how much experience they have. In a very weak property market, you do not need the added stress of a shoddy law firm. Ann is a highly experienced conveyancer who knows property law inside out.

  • If we could give 6 stars out of 5, we would. We have used Huggins on two property transactions and each time, our conveyancer has been Ann Hines and we are so thankful for Ann. Ann has, quite literally, been the lead conveyancer and a key reason for the property transaction going ahead. There have been times when the transaction was stalling or looked like it would collapse due to incompetence from other parties' lawyers and Ann has been in control and pushing matters forward.

  • Ann Hines was the best conveyancer I’ve ever used – conscientious helpful and gave great advice.

  • Ann was extremely helpful and a pleasure to work with. She was quick and efficient and always kept us informed she took away the stress and anxiety of what is definitely a stressful time. We would certainly use Ann again if we need to. We found Ann and the Company to be really helpful and would certainly have no hesitation in using the Company again for other matters.

  • Thank you Ann. One more week then its a new chapter in our lives. I would happily recommended you, you are encouraging, motivating and efficient. First class service.

  • Ann Hines acted for me on the sale and purchase of a home - and she was excellent. Any questions I had were answered promptly and the whole process was stress free and efficient. I would not hesitate to recommend Ann Hines to anyone in need of a conveyancer.

  • Ann Hines and her team have served us very well across a number of property transactions over many years. The latest in the past few weeks was the usual great example of high levels of competency and efficiency. I would recommend them without hesitation.

    Mr P.C.
  • Yet again Ann Hines has guided us successfully through another purchase, on this occasion for my 94-year-old mother in law. Her conveyancing and communication skills are excellent in what can be a very stressful process. Thanks Ann and team!.

  • Ann Hines recently handled the sale and purchase of 2 properties for us and she could not have been more helpful and knowledgeable. She was very quick to respond to emails from all parties and actively progressed our case. We would highly recommend Ann and gladly come back to her in the future..

  • Ann Hines recently assisted us on the purchase of our first home. It is safe to say she was brilliant, she handled everything and was always on hand if we needed anything or had any questions. We had an accelerated timeframe to buy the property and it would have not been possible without Ann as she drove the process from start to finish on all sides. Thanks to her we were able to complete within 7 weeks of first viewing the property!!.



  • This is the 3rd time I have used Huggins Law and I have always had a good experience, Joyce Owusu Afari, Vishal Amin and Ann Hines have always been easy to communicate with and it does feel like you have someone on your side, fighting your corner when things go askew. Always willing to recommend to anyone who will listen..

  • I have regularly used Ann Hines for over 20 years. During that time, without exception, I have found her to be extremely competent and efficient. She always promptly replies to my emails, returns my calls and always keeps me informed. I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending her. Thank you Ann!.

  • We have used this firm for our purchase and sale of 2 properties and found Ann Hines to be extremely efficient and helpful. She navigated us through a first time buy, and replied promptly to enquiries. We would highly recommend her and her colleagues.

  • Ann Hines was extremely friendly, helpful and professional in dealing with the conveyancing of our recent house move. Nothing was too much trouble for her and it was clear throughout that she had our best interests at heart in everything she did on our behalf. I would have no hesitation in appointing Ann again in the future and would recommend her to anyone looking for conveyancing services..

  • I can't recommend Ann Hines enough! She has been brilliant; she dealt with the sale of our old house and the purchase of our new house. The whole process dragged out over 9 months in the end (nothing to do with Ann) and she was patient and attentive throughout.

  • Ann Hines was a great asset for us throughout our buying process. Ann's experience, knowledge, professionalism, guidance, patience, responsiveness and ease to work with shone throughout. We are very grateful we had Ann on our side and wouldn't hesitate to recommend her.



  • We just went through a complicated property purchase. The other solicitors were difficult to deal with and non communicative. Ann Hines kept a cool head and gave us excellent advice which resulted in all the transactions being completed on time. I will always use Ann for my property transactions. Thank you again Ann for excellent knowledge and service.



  • Ann Hines provided us with an exceptional level of service when we were buying our first home. She kept us up to date as soon as there were any developments and was always easily reachable for any queries we had. The whole process took us a month and a half which was much quicker than we anticipated and a lot of this we owe to Ann. Thank you.




  • Ann Hines and the team from Huggins Lewis Foskett were brilliant and the service we received was great from start to finish. Our house move was a long and painful experience (5 different chains in total) however the legal service and advice we received from Ann was always first class. I would recommend Ann anytime. Thank you so so much for all your help.




  • Ann Hines has been a TOTAL STAR for me and my wife these last few years, She has handled over 5 sales and purchases now (including some weird ones and also urgent ones). She is professional and helpful and goes above and beyond what you would expect anyone else to do. Can not recommend her strongly enough (and have put our kids in contact with her too for their sales/purchase) - please never retire!.

  • Ann Hines was the solicitor for the purchase of my property - I cannot recommend her enough! She is extremely helpful and was great at explaining the process to me as a first time buyer. Her communication and response times are impeccable and made the process so easy for me. Thank you Ann!




  • We have just used Ann Hines for a Purchase and Remortgage. She is amazing! I went to Ann after seeing the referrals on the local Facebook group and was not disappointed! Ann goes above and beyond a normal level of service expected and totally exceeds even the high expectations I had. She responds quickly to queries and leaves you feeling reassured that everything is in good hands; which it is. I can't recommend Ann enough.




  • We have used Ann Hines for one sale and one purchase. We sold a property in London and then moved to Bristol and subsequently found a property to buy there. We sought quotes from local firms but Ann was more competitive and we knew the level of service would be good. Ann is always on the ball and has excellent attention to detail. If there are delays in the process you can be confident they won't be down to her.




  • Anne Hines is a consummate professional. My thanks to her and the team for the way they conducted themselves with the legal process of selling our house




  • Ann was fantastic! We faced a lot of challenges especially purchasing a house during a pandemic. She was reliable, prompt and made the entire process much easier. Thank you so much Ann!




  • We instructed Ann Hines for our sale and purchase. I would highly recommend Ann. Ann is professional, personable and above all experienced. It was a pleasure to deal with Ann and I am certain that the sale and purchase was a lot less stressful because of her.




  • I used Ann Hines for the purchase of my first home. I would absolutely recommend her. She was always on hand to help explain through the processes, which was especially helpful being a first time buyer. She’s very quick at responding to queries and overall made the process a lot less stressful. I would definitely use her again.




  • Ann's diligence, communication and response times were far beyond our expectations. We now have a completion date on our new property that is so much earlier than we could have originally hoped for. This is how you always hope a property purchase will go, but so rarely see.




  • Ann helped us buy our flat and worked tirelessly to make it happen in the context of significant delays. She was very thorough and responsive and inspired confidence at every step. I would recommend Ann without hesitation.
