Barbara Stewart


Barbara is one of our Partners at Martin Tolhurst Solicitors and is based in our Longfield office. Barbara has 34 years experience and expertise doing probate, wills, powers of attorney and residential conveyancing.

During her long career Barbara has acquired vast experience in all aspects of residential conveyancing enabling her to identify potential problems and resolve them quickly for the benefit of her clients . Her knowledge of property law assists greatly when dealing with wills, powers of attorney and probate matters. Her clients appreciate her knowledge of more than one area of law.

Recently Barbara has dealt with a specifically diverse case of preparing legal documentation re appropriation of property in connection with a probate matter including dealing with restrictions on the register of title.

What Barbara says:

“Having completed my LLB Hons degree in Law I joined Martin Tolhurst Solicitors as a Trainee Solicitor, before qualifying as a Solicitor in 1984. I was later offered Partnership and have now been a Partner at the firm for many years.

My extensive understanding of the areas of law in which I specialise enables me to explain complex issues in a straightforward, clear way and I strive to make all clients feel at ease.

I regularly see clients in their own homes if they have difficulty getting into the office and am happy to be flexible in this way.

The fact that I specialise in multiple areas of law is a key advantage for many, as clients will often instruct me to do their conveyancing, as well as write their wills and prepare Lasting Powers of Attorney for them, which they find to be convenient.

I am a member of Kent Law Society and of the Private Client Section of the Law Society, regularly keeping up-to-date with any changes within property and private client law.

Outside of the office I enjoy gardening and am also a black belt in Karate.

If I were not a lawyer, I would be...

A horticulturist as I love gardening with a passion but know absolutely nothing about it!
