Heppenstalls History

Heppenstalls was founded in 1893 by Herbert Culllin Heppenstall, our Lymington office was the first but not on our current site. The firm moved into 75 High Street in 1896. New Milton and Lyndhurst followed later in 1923. New Milton still occupies the same premises at 82 Station Road. Over the years we also had offices in Milford , Highcliffe and Brockenhurst

In 1946 we became Messrs. Heppenstall Rustom & Rowbotham and are proud that two generations of families from our founders Heppenstall and Rustom have worked with us.

Over the years the firm has changed and expanded, in 2011 we became a Limited Company, being one of the first Solicitors’ Partnerships to fully incorporate.

In 2021 we moved our Lymington office from the High Street to 49,South Efford House, Milford Road, SO41 0JD next to Otter nurseries. These modern offices are easy for our clients to attend and afford free onsite parking and also it has a lift for disabled access.

Today we have offices in New Milton and Lymington, with three Directors on our Board. Our Managing Director Alexandra Jennings has been with the firm since 1978 when she started as articled clerk. She was joined by Marie Redman and Nicola Davies in more recent years.

Heppenstalls have seen many changes to the local area and the law in our 129 years! 2020 and the pandemic brought a new challenge for us and we had to be inventive, with video calls, visiting our clients in their gardens or witnessing Will signings through windows. Thankfully 2020 was a year of fabulous weather! We are part of the community and generations of families have continued to be our clients so we had to ensure we continued to offer the same level of service. Thankfully things in 2022 seem to be slightly more a return to normal and we are taking appointments with clients in our offices. We continue to wear masks and our staff undertake frequent lateral flow tests to ensure our clients’ and staff’s safety.

Heppenstalls specialises in Residential conveyancing which includes buying and selling properties,  enquiry lease extensions,  transfer of equity re-mortgages and Private client work which includes Wills, Trusts, Powers of Attorney, Deputyships and Probate. We also provide tax advice and can prepare tax accounts for our clients.
