      We have had current experience with Birchall Blackburn.
      The process was explained to us clearly and we were able to ask any questions .Covid made it slightly more difficult, however our solicitor ensured our needs were met.The service we received ,was fast, excellent and the outcome exceeded our expectations.Overall it was a positive experience with empathy towards the client and his situation.

      Mark Ainsworth looked after our recent house move, including sale and purchase. He was fantastic throughout. Extremely efficient, quick and professional. It was very easy to communicate with him on a daily basis at times, if necessary which I haven't had experience of with previous solicitors. He went out of his way to resolve any issues we faced. Mark is an asset to the company. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Mark Ainsworth or Birchall Blackburn to anyone.

      Thank you Birchall Blackburn Law for your excellent and quick conveyancing. Although we were only purchasing a property, Ambia Khatun dealt with our conveyancing within 9 weeks. I thought the portal was going to be difficult to use but it turned out to be rather straight forward. We picked up our keys today and we are delighted. Louise & Darren.

Credit where credit is due! Well done Ryk.

      Birchall Blackburn Law assisted us with the purchase of our first home. As this was unknown territory for us, we needed a lot of help and support navigating through the process. The team were readily available, polite and understanding. We felt confused by some of the processes and time-lines on occasion but working with an empathic, knowledgable team- in particular Emily Cowland- was indispensable in getting us the kind of home and representation we needed.

      We had recently purchased a property and instructed Birchall Blackburn as our Solicitors which was dealt by Joe Witkiewicz. We were extremely pleased with Joe's professionalism, care and approach to dealing with the purchase. All our queries were always addressed in detail and wherever we had doubts, Joe would provide explanations and options. This ensured we completed our purchase with the full legal knowledge of what we were doing. Guess what, we approached Birchall Blackburn again for our next purchase as we found Joe to be so good. On our instructions, Joe handled our second purchase and once again Joe impressed us with his knowledge and care. Whenever we had any queries, Joe would be able to understand the concern behind it and respond accordingly to keep us informed and also up-to-date. You may have to wait a few days for Joe's response and may not always get him on the phone, but he always responds and with the right answers. Highly recommend Joe who also has created a fantastic team around him.

      Mark Ainsworth is one in a million, and we only ever want to work with him, as he cares and supports you, replies to your emails, speaks to you on the telephone, calls you himself if needed and he is just such a great person to work with, we cannot thank him enough.
      We've just worked our way through 2 particularly difficult property transactions, one a sale and one a purchase, lost 2 buyers and were kept waiting by the vendors, but all should be ok next week. Mark has kept us informed every step of the way and has anticipated things that had to be done before we could even ask for them. He's been totally wonderful and we cannot thank him enough, he is patient, nice, helpful and utterly supportive and we have worked very happily with him for many years.

      I have used BBL a few times but the latest occasion I praise my conveyancer and give credit where it’s due. Stephanie Donaghy-Sims is a true professional with empathy. I had a sale and purchase with the sale taking a lot longer to go through and therefore holding up my purchase. Towards the end it felt like Stephanie was going through the ordeal with me and my wife. Through the anxious times and stress! Stephanie even kept us updated on her days off. She is thorough and knows her stuff. I will definitely be using BBL again and will request Stephanie to be my conveyancer.

      Keep doing what you’re doing Steph!

      I bought my property with BB 8 years ago and had no issues so chose to use them again when selling. They have been atrocious at every step of the way.

      Refusal to answer the phone and communicate is chief among my complaints.

      This being the first property I have tried to sell there have been numerous occasions when I have not understood simple forms or requirements and had to ask multiple times for explanations.
      These were only forth coming after I raised a complaint.

      I am now 7 months in and still trying to sell a no chain flat. BB keeps coming back to me with further requests for documents which I believed And was told 2months were no longer needed.

      It has been a hugely stressful process exacerbated by lack of communication and poor administration.

      Having had to source all legal documentation myself once I had googled enough to understand what it is and then submit I still have not reached a point to complete on the property.

      BB’s service was dreadful and has amounted to no more than a disorganised email forwarding service.

      I can not recommend looking elsewhere enough.

      We really liked that most communication was via email. Saadia was fantastic, we were really impressed with how quickly she replied and kept us up to date with everything.

      I had wanted to purchase the freehold to my property for sometime and was somewhat nervous to do so. However I found both Ahmed Patel, Trainee Solicitor and Jennifer Gadsdon, the accredited ALEP Solicitor to be both knowledgeable and professional. I asked a lot of questions to help me understand the process, though the legal side of things, the legal jargon and how legal documents are actually written still leaves me at a loss and that’s predominantly why I appointed BBL to liaise over the purchase of the freehold. The whole process took about eight months which was longer than I thought it would take, however with being in the middle of a Covid pandemic I imagine communication and liaison took longer than normal (ie can’t visit the office) and it was important to me that the work was done properly and thoroughly.

      I cannot recommend this firm highly enough.
      Mark Ainsworth acted on my behalf for my property sale and purchase. At every step of the way I have been kept informed. Communication has been fantastic. Any questions have been answered so quickly via email. Not once was I left wondering. Even up to the final completion day.
      Reception staff are all very friendly and helpful also.
      This was my first time selling a house and buying another. They have made what I was told one of the most stressful things you can do in your life, so simple and stress free. I haven't had to worry about anything.
      I can't thank you all enough especially Mark for assisting me in buying my dream home.
      Don't hesitate to call them. I would use them again in a heartbeat.

      Recently used Birchall Blackburn to guide my wife through a catastrophic injury claim. The lead solicitor involved, Robert Jones, was professional, thorough and diligent throughout. He was also sensitive to the emotional toll the whole process involves, and made sure my wife was not under any undue distress going through the details. No stone was left unturned in piecing together the evidence. Would highly recommend this company.

      Excellent Customer service! Birchall Blackburn Law was selected by my estate agent to do my Conveyancing through a package I bought through my estate agent (Purple Bricks) for the sale of my house and purchase of my next home. The sale/purchase journey has been a very bumpy once for a number of reasons mainly due to the pandemic but Birchall Blackburn Law were with me all the way through it and now I have my completion dates which is only days away. I never had to chase for an update and when I did contact them by email I got a quick reply usually the same day and always picked up the phone. A number of delays were lower in the chain and Birchall Blackburn Law always pushed for answers/updates and regularly kept me updated. Stephanie & Luisa’s ability to explain complex processes and proactivity has been second to none and I’d highly recommend using them to anyone who is looking to move home.

      I have to say if ever need a solicitor to assist you with the stress of selling a house, or any aspect regarding property then make sure you contact Miss.

I have dealt with numerous lawyers throughout my life, but have to say the most professional, understanding & to be perfectly honest THE BEST solicitor I have EVER had dealings with has been Miss. McGowan. Miss McGowan handled my bridging loan for divorce purposes & subsequently the sale of my house in the most efficient manner you could have ever wished for. If you are able to read this Miss.McGowan then all I can say is thank you so much for making one of the hardest times in my life so much easier.

      Thank you so much Robert.

      I have now used Birchall Blackburn on three occasions, and once again I am extremely happy with the service I received. Mark Ainsworth was simply brilliant! He guided me through a particularly challenging purchase with focus and efficiency. He kept me fully updated at all times, always responding promptly to calls and emails, which meant that I felt reassured at each stage of the process. I couldn’t recommend him highly enough. Thank you Mark.

      If it was possible to give 11 out of 10 to the professional and diligent service provided by Robert Jones of Birchall Blackburn Law in my recent compensation claim following an accidental fall resulting in having to have a replacement radial head then I would do so.

      Throughout the claim Robert kept me informed at every stage and was more than happy to discuss matters over the telephone rather than rely on emails etc.

      Through his attention to detail the defendants awarded a financial settlement that given the circumstances arising from the accident was fair and just.

      I have no hesitation in recommending the services of Birchall Blackburn Law and in particular to its associate Robert Jones.

As first time buyers, we appreciated the time spent to explain everything to us. Communication was clear, quick and efficient (95% email). Being the other side of the country from us did not cause any issue. Price was competitive and pricing structure clear.

      I was thoroughly impressed from the very beginning with Birchall Blackburn Law. As a first time buyer, not knowing what the legal ins and outs of purchasing a home were. They were able to provide and execute all the documentation clearly and professionally for us. Fair and honest with every aspect of their conveyancing process.

      My solicitor worked brilliantly on our purchase. Always explaining exactly what we needed to know through the entire process. But what I found most impressive from our experience with them was the dedication they provided to looking after our best interests. Both the financial and legal aspects they conveyed over, making sure that we were protected and taken care of through the entire process. Which for us, was a priceless aspect to the purchase. To know we were safely protected was amazing. So I’d highly recommend their services and will do so to any friends or family that purchase in the future. Many thanks!

      I was initially wary about using an online solicitor and thought about cancelling the instruction, based on the advice of a friend. I couldn't have been more impressed with the service I received from Ben. Every email and telephone call was answered promptly. He clearly cared about the purchase and did everything he could to move it on quickly and efficiently. He was far more prompt and effective than the local solicitors used by the seller. I could not praise him highly enough and have already recommended him and the company several times.

      Due to reasons beyond mine and Sharon's control, the house I was purchasing took 7 months to buy and then complete on as there was a problem with the vendor and her tenants. Throughout all of this, Sharon was extremely helpful, responsive, informative, kind and patient. She worked so hard for me and always kept me in the loop as to what was going on. By the end, there was a huge rush to complete at very short notice (4 working days!) and Sharon pulled out all the stops for me so we were able to do this. Without Sharon's help, I wouldn't have been able to complete and purchase the house I'd waited so long for. Basically, Sharon is amazing and I would recommend her and Birchall Blackburn Southport in a heartbeat! Thank you Sharon!

      They have been amazing. Questions were answered quickly and they were both very helpful and thorough. I would recomend the company to everyone and make sure they request these two if they can because they have really made the process seamless. They were recommended to me by my sister who had also had Emil and Olivia working on two of her house purchases and she said "oh brilliant these to are amazing".

      After having a nightmare with our previous solicitors, I really didn't want to go through this all again, and I assumed they were all the same, but I was wrong. Birchall Blackburn have been fantastic from start to finish, from the simple things like calling me to introduce themselves, and being able to upload passport documents to their online portal rather than sending them off (something I was dreading doing in case they got lost). Our contact changed from Muhammad to Joe and Joe has been so good, answers emails straight away, and was really helpful in advising me on how to transfer funds quickly. He never ignored me when I emailed him, was always on the other end of the phone if I called, and never belittled me if I asked a stupid question. We are due to complete in 2 days time and I am so excited. Thank you so much Birchall Blackburn Law for showing me not all solicitors are the same! Can't recommend them enough!

      Our experience with Birchall Blackburn Law for conveyancing, was absolutely faultless. We were initially assigned to a partner who was going to take on our conveyancing, but it was reassigned to a different lawyer Saadia Hussain due to caseload issues. Saadia was absolutely brilliant - friendly, professional, and really efficient! Whilst our house-buying felt quite stressful at times due to delays in the onward chain, Saadia was calm and helpful throughout. She was really proactive in chasing up the sale, and we always felt like she had our back and we could trust her! She explained things go us really well, and kept us in the loop constantly. As first-time buyers, we had heard lots of negative stories of our friends' experiences of solicitors but ours couldn't have been a more positive experience, and that is thanks to Saadia. She is an absolute asset to Birchall Blackburn Law and we would highly recommend her!

      A huge thank you to Rebecca & Emma at the Leyland office for completing my house move. It should have been a relatively easy move with a very small chain involved but we faced constant issues with another solicitor in the chain who ignored calls & emails and delayed the process at every step. However, Becky & Emma kept me informed and worked tirelessly to get the house move done. Knowing they were doing their best for me helped get me through a very stressful time and I would highly recommend them.

      They spelt my wife's name wrong and they job share and when that person is out all the stuff is on their computer. Just found out that upon selling our house they have missed information about our house which has cost me more money. Not a good company for us I wouldn't recommend them.

      Thanks for smooth transaction. Conveyancing never moves as quickly as you would like or expect, however, we were kept appraised at all steps in the process, giving us the opportunity to also chase up outstanding actions from the other parties. Special thanks goes to Saadia as we had a very tight timeline for signing the contracts (I was out of the country on business and only had one day in that month back in the UK to sign the paperwork). The complete bundle arrived on that day as promised. Having an assigned go to person was great, especially when they are as efficient and courteous as Saadia

There is no chain and the property is empty we have no question or request so simple but still waiting!! Trying to get hold of this solicitor has been a nightmare and often emailing all the email address we can find for this place. AVOID AT ALL COSTS! Where recommend by halifax so disappointed

      Sensitive and professional. My case was dealt with by Robert Jones of the Manchester branch of Birchall Blackburn Law. Robert worked tirelessly against all obstacles. He conducted all dealings with us in a professional manner. I never felt under pressure or stress to hurry proceedings or commit to anything unless I was 100% sure. He explained procedures in a thorough, precise way. Robert dealt with us sensitively and compassionately in the most tragic of circumstances. The level of service as far as I am concerned is of the highest standard and I cannot suggest any area that needs improving .

      I recently used the Preston branch for conveyancing related to the purchase of my new house. Despite the constant problems/delays caused by the sellers' solicitors (which probably also created a lot of additional unnecessary work for BBL), the team worked extremely hard to ensure that completion took place. Due to the issues mentioned above, this has been by far the most stressful of the five property purchases in my lifetime, but none of this is the fault of BBL. Thank you so much to Amanda and her team, who provided exemplary service throughout the conveyancing process. I am hoping to never have to move house again, but if I do need legal advice in the future, I will certainly use BBL again.

She knew my case by name and made me feel I was calling someone who actually cared about my house sale even though I’m sure she has dozens on the go at the same time.Jessica went above and beyond and if she had not been so hardworking and knowledgeable it could have been weeks still before getting to completion.

      If Saadia was assigned to me from the very very beginning I would have given 5/5 however because I felt Jessica did not keep me updated and I had to chase after her I have given 4/5.

      If you ever wish to use this company I’d personally ask for Saadia as she gets the job done with no fuss and 100% dedication

      It was my bad luck to have those rubbish firm who dealt with my simple re-mortgage as well. I had to complain and take them the ombudsman afterward. I would advise everyone who is unlucky to have handed their papers to these rubbish firm is to go on the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) website and simply report them, they are just a business so don’t be threatened by their position.
      To others, who are searching for a solicitor firm, stay clear of them and view the previous overwhelming complaints by those whom were less lucky than you.

      Sharon Parker was extremely efficient in dealing with queries in what was a particularly difficult purchase. There were many suggestions made by Sharon that I had to communicate to the seller. These suggestions should have been made by the sellers solicitor who seemed to be more obstructive than a help in the process. I believe if it wasn’t for Sharon professionalism and knowledge the transaction would not have completed.

      “To call you stupid would be an insult to stupid people”
      You might have read many who will warn of not even going near this firm who are a bunch of imbeciles let alone calling themselves legal professionals (A joke of the year as far as I am concerned). Wait until you read about my experience of being a victim of the Nightmare of Birchall Blackburn Movie, which began when an “independent” broker introduced me to them to arrange the simple task of re-mortgage. Everything seemed to be going well and the offer came on 1st September 2016 from the lender despite them dragging their feet over technical issues. Nevertheless, the firm contacted me and I received the introduction papers, which is designed to allure you into a sense of security by giving all the contacts you need if you have a problem. But as soon as you hit a rock then the cracks begins to appear and that’s what I experienced with this nightmare firm.
      It began when I had an issue with my buy to let mortgage, and rather than them helping to resolve it (which they could have) they made me get external litigation advice which costed me over £1000. I contacted the firm to request a call back from the partner Michael Foxford (I advise you to look at his previous work history-it will alarm you) or any litigation lawyer that can assist me. Eventually, I got a call from one of the staff and I explained that I have a problem which requires a litigation lawyer’s advice and offered to pay for the service as well. My requests fell on deaf ears, and instead I was informed that this matter is really serious which can threaten the offer (wrong advice which any one can easily find on the UK government website). The money I spent could have been paid to this firm but their conduct in the case lost them an opportunity to make more money, let alone my confident in them as law firm -so to call them stupid is an insult to stupid people, don’t you think?
      After I began to get suspicious that the case handlers were deliberately delaying the completion, nearly causing me to miss the deadline I had to get other solicitors to move the case forward. What was worse than this is I discovered that the staff had no clue what they were doing because they or their seniors did not know how to think out of the box. A particular staff named Mahbuba Choudhury (3 years’ experience) was not only rude but did not even know how to be a professional when my solicitor called and pointed out the obvious.
      Needless to say, I had continuous stress for 3 months and no thanks to the partners who ignored my complaints. It was only by accident that I was put through to a complaints officer and a when a very stern letter from my solicitor was sent was when things started moving. I should not have had to go through this stress and financial loss of getting other lawyers involved.
      This firm should be struck off by reporting them to the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA). DO NOT GO NEAR THEM EVEN IF YOUR MORTGAGOR OR BROKER INSTRUCTS THEM – WORTH PAYING FOR A BETTER FIRM. Always look at reviews or a recommendation when searching for a good firm. My conclusion from this experience is:
      • When told by a broker about the firm I should have researched Solicitors reviews websites such as (solicitor.info) and others as well which have all given them 1 star. Then, I should have informed the broker of this and requested a better firm or found one myself even if I have to pay more for the service.
      • Never believe the website that gives them higher than 3 stars (only one website and its information is out of date) so be vigilant.
      • Seek independent legal advice and threaten to remove them and contact your broker and inform them that the firm is causing the delay.
      This is a dreadful incompetent firm and many have written that this firm is not to be trusted and is unreliable. If you want a peace of mind and hassle-free conveyancing, then stay away from this firm.
      My advice to you who has just became one of the victims of the Nightmare of Birchall Blackburn Law like myself is to do one simple thing- DON’T GET ANGRY, GET EVEN. It’s a simple task to search on Google the Solicitors Regulation Authority and go to ‘complain about a solicitor’ section and pour your anger there. Don’t be afraid of them, they are only a business, and by the way the more people complain the more their justification gets weaker and makes it easier for the firm to be struck off. I did it already, so please take this advice write to the SRA and SHUT THEM DOWN.

      I like to think of myself as a rational and fair person, so here is my honest review of Birchall Blackburn Solicitors. I selected this solicitor after they were suggested by my Estate Agent as a good recommendation for handling my house sale as well as a separate house purchase. I was assigned Ted Kingsnorth to look after my flat sale and the early management of my case was handled relatively well by Ted and his assistant Daniel Edwards. However, towards the end of the process, there were one or two searches which had been outstanding for an excessive period of time. Having raised the necessary inquiries with Ted Kingsnorth to understand why the process had not progressed, I was met with the most ABUSIVE and SHOCKING phone call that I have ever encountered with a professional. When asked simple questions which most sellers in my position would ask, Ted Kingsnorth refused to answer the questions and instead proceeded SHOUT aggressively down the phone and demand that I refrain from contacting my own freeholder (to raise inquiries myself), otherwise he would "pull out". When I questioned him as to what he meant by pulling out, given that I was the customer and he was in no position to "pull out" from anything, he continued to shout at me in an incoherent manner. I thought for a second that I might be in the midst of a row with an unhinged individual - not an educated, professional with years of experience in his field. Ted Kingsnorth's shouting continued to escalate to the point that I could no longer continue the conversation and had to hang up the phone, which was a first for me given the fact that I am able to resolve disputes in a civilised manner. Now this is where things take a peculiar turn. I received a surprise phone call from Ted the very next day. When he called, I was hesitant to answer given the abuse I received the previous day. However, I cautiously answered his call only to be met with a nice and breezy tone from Ted - almost nonchalant with no remnants of the phone call from only 24hrs earlier. I thought for one second that I was in the twilight zone and the verbal attack from yesterday had not happened. It turns out that Ted had called to tell me that the searches had now been completed and I was ready to exchange contracts i.e. the work he should have done many weeks ago had now finally been completed. Strange. Anyway, to conclude; I would understandably not recommend this solicitor to anyone unless you like a challenge and have no problem dealing with the stuff of nightmares. However, despite my poor review of Ted 'Peculiar' Kingsnorth, I highly recommend his assistant Daniel Edwards who is a gentleman and a scholar and should be quickly promoted to whatever position Ted is currently occupying. So thanks Daniel for proving that not all solicitors are like Ted. I am now not too scared to sell my house when the time comes.

      Sadly I can't give the firm 1 star. This firm is a recommended solicitor for Lloyds and they have a tie in clearly for profit purposes only. Not only would they not start the legal work until the mortgage was approved (wasting 6 weeks within our chain), they NEVER return phone calls or emails without them having to be chased. When you do get email back, they are snappy and short and certainly not helpful. They ask for things just to delay the process and it literally has taken 4 parties (buyer, seller, agent and another solicitor) chasing up on a daily basis for weeks, to get close to exchange (after over 3 months for a really simple transaction). Without this I think we'd be looking at 4-5 months for a simple 3 person chain (chain free at both ends!)

      If you are a first time buyer in particular - please avoid this firm. For the sake of a few hundred pounds saved, potentially the purchase or sale will fail and your stress levels will go through the roof! If offered a special deal through the mortgage company, say thanks but no thanks and pay for a local well reputed firm to carry out your work. In the scheme of buying a house this is important.

      Please avoid this company, they are literally the worst I have EVER dealt with. It almost cost us our purchase and sale and certainly has caused everyone in the chain so much stress.

      Could not agree more with the reviews already on here, this lot truly are a bunch of cowboys. We are first time buyers, had no chain either side and were recommended these clowns by our mortgage advisor. Offer accepted 6 months ago and still no exchange or completion date in site. They never return calls, they lie about what work they have done/will do, they stall on everything and have probably caused a 2 month delay at least so far to our house buying process.

Have dealt with a range of solicitors in my time and they are the most incompetent firm that I have ever had misfortune to be involved with.

      Terrible service so far no communication unless you constantly call them, even then information is out of date and inaccurate , call backs rare and sporadic it's all very frustratin. Conveyancer is out of office more than in and assistants (there have been a few) admit they don't know how to use some systems. Our estate agents say they are the worse solicitors that they have ever dealt with I only wish that I had read reviews before employing them They are so slow I'm starting to give up hope of ever moving

      Worst solicitors ever dealt with! So slow at doing anything, rarely answer phone or respond to emails. Have had a document for over a week and still not looked at it. started proceeding early August and still no completion date even though paperwork and enquiries are complete. I wish I had seen all these reviews before instructing!

      I was relying on this joke of a company to remove my name off some deeds. They sent the forms to the wrong address and it took me 3 weeks after to find out they hadn't got a response. I did all the work for them in the end as they don't pro actively manage anything. Oh and if the person dealing with your case is off don't expect anyone to pick up the work.

      So if you're after a completely incompetent solicitor, who doesn't like to chase, respond back to emails then these are your people.

      AWFUL AWFUL AWFUL. These were the buyers' solicitors (I am the seller). It was fortunate that I knew the buyers and that they were able to apologise to us for using this company. They were first time buyers and had been passed on to this company by their broker. What an awful first experience they have had. SLOW SLOW SLOW. My solicitor had to constantly follow up things, ask them to re-issue incorrect documents and chase things up. They repeatedly got the figures wrong and insisted they were right. Thank goodness my solicitor stood his ground in order to get the correct figures on the documents. Emails went for days without an answer. We were ready to complete but were kept waiting for weeks for BB to get moving. This impacted on things our end. At one point my solicitor even emailed me to ask if I was still selling the property ... he had waited that long! We'll all be steering clear of this company in the future.

Then denied giving us the completion date?! Kept being told everything was in place to go ahead, only to find out a day later it was not. Given false information, which they then denied giving me!

      I used the Southport branch for a purchase/sale in Oct 2015 seeing as they were the cheapest on comparison sites. They successfully took inefficiency and procrastination to a new level.

      I had repeated assurances of timelines being adhered to but numerous things kept popping up at the last minute which delayed exchange. This is in spite of my initial sale falling through giving them ample time to get their act together.

      The senior contact assigned to my case went missing in the middle of the sale leaving me with a Simon Taylor who basically lost the plot. Absolutely horrible at chasing the other side for crucial documents, failed to highlight key points (e.g. no chancel repair liability insurance on purchase), pretty much rude when pushed for answers or asked to explain anything. If it wasn't for another senior contact intervening, I'm pretty sure the whole thing would have fallen through.

      I would stay clear.

      The service from this firm was pitiful. The were instructed on the 5th June and the sale has only just completed on the 1st December. This was for the sale of a flat to a cash buyer, chain-free. They blatantly lied, placing the delays upon any other party but themselves. The solicitor was clearly unknowledgeable, sometimes I questioned if she even knew what day it was. Weeks would pass without any progress, when questioned I would hear the same response that I had heard two weeks earlier.

      This is the worst legal firm I have ever come across. It is a wonder they get any property deals to completion. I am using them for my sale/purchase we are now in month 4 with no sight of completion. For 2 months my solicitor had been contacting the wrong solicitor and never thought to tell me of the issue. Said she sent me an email with 9 attachments but only received 8, some how one dropped off in transit, I don't think so!!! Have to chase them continuously and never get any answers, have asked them several times for answers to queries I have about my purchase, they are just ignoring these queries. They are part of the 'conveyancing quality scheme' and clearly breach the charter. NOTHING QUALITY ABOUT THIS FIRM. I will probably lose my dream home and it will be thanks to the incompetence of this firm.

      The worst possible service.

      Taken three months from instruction - still not got searches completed,

      Passed from Manchester to Preston for no reason - highly inconvenient.

      Solicitor assigned - after endless chasing, I was told she had left the business.

      Assigned to another - only for the situation to repeat. Four weeks of chasing and the second has left the business.

      Given a completion date by them, which they have failed spectacularly to meet.

      Called and left messages EVERY DAY FOR TWO WEEKS without getting a SINGLE RETURNED CALL or letter that was promised.

      Held on the phone for 23 minutes when I refused offer 'to be called back' only to discover my new solicitor has also 'now left the business' and the person I spoke to admitted he was working through her cases "trying to find out where they are up to",

      Three months after appointing them I have almost ZERO confidence I will complete.

      I will be writing to the law Society because, based on other reviews, it is clear they do not take any complaints seriously.

      And during every call I have to listen to the on-hold recording telling me that "Birchall Blackburn are always there for all my legal needs"

      They are a joke.

      I can only vouch for the Southport branch who I have to say were excellent. Ideally, it would be better to have somebody local where you can pop in with any queries but they were nearly double the price I paid Birchalls, any problems though, you ring or email and somebody will get straight back to you. There was a small problem with my sale and Birchalls were more than a match for the opposite solicitors and actually saved me money, so yes, I would definitely use again

      I have no hesitation about recommending this firm based on our experience. We had a superb solicitor who helped to save the deal on the property, when I had lost hope, due to the ineptitude of others down the chain. She was always professional and answered all our queries and concerns promptly. She had to deal with others who were less than professional in their business dealings and managed to chivvy them into action when all others had failed. I have no doubt that I would not be in the home I had set my heart on, if it had not been for the diligence and hard work of our solicitor.

      Sent emails for an update as had confirmation sellers solicitor had sent everything - received no response so sent a subsequent email saying I would expect them to have acknowledged my email. Received a reply saying 'they had only just got round to looking at my file' - the person sending the email could do with an attitude adjustment - I responded saying I was sorry for 'appearing pushy and being an inconvenience'.

      paperwork received for someone else, replied and confirmed I had destroyed and hoped none of my paperwork had been sent elsewhere - no response, not even an apology

      have not identified two signatures required as two sellers - have highlighted this, no response. This will probably delay things further and why did they not pick this up?

      I received an email and I asked for clarification on a point tracking the email to see when it has been read - still no response and not read, despite the fact their email says 'if you have any queries, please contact us'.

      I am a FTB so have no comparison, however I am a professional person working for an Independent Financial Advisers and have done for 10 years and if I treated my clients this way, regardless of the fee being paid, I probably would not have a job.

      To say they are cheap and you get what you pay for is an invalid statement, I am still paying for a service, regardless of what it is and as a client I would expect a certain level of courtesy - if they are too busy to carry the workload, they should employ more staff OR not take on more work.

      I still haven't exchanged contracts yet, although this is not Birchall Blackburns fault and I remain hopeful that they can redeem themselves in the next few weeks, but thought I would put my experiences to date here.

      I am currently less than impressed with them and it seems as though I am not in a minority. I hope that I can come back after completion and change my views.... ever the optimist.

      I dealt with Birchall Blackburn for the purchase of a property back in May of this year after they were recommended to me. It turns out this is one of the worse decisions I have ever made!

      Right from the very start to end I had so many problems....

      Firstly, a price was agreed for the work to be done and then to be told it would cost more as "there was more work involved than originally quoted for"

      I was assured they were very experienced with my "type" of purchase so I paid the additional fee and carried on.

      They got my mortgage offer wrong 3 times which caused big delays. Communication was shocking from start to finish and I only heard anything if I chased. On more than one occasion I was told that all the required paper work had being received only to be told days later that that wasn't the case.

      On two separate occasions I received other clients (confidential) paper work - Very careless and I'm sure the clients in question wouldn't be impressed!

      I have recently received a letter, 8 months after completion to tell that there is still some paper work outstanding and that they require a further £300!

      I can assure you that will not be getting paid by me!

      Avoid at all cost - They are cheap for a reason.

      The buyer of my property is using this firm, probably because they are cheap. And as usual cheap also means not very good! My solicitor, the estate agent, the buyer and myself have all left them messages for 3 days in a row, as we are all wanting to exchange now, and they don't even have the courtesy of ringing back. It was 2 months after they were instructed by the buyer to act on their behalf before they even started the searches. Their biggest issue is that they simply do not communicate and have to be chased and chased and chased at every point to even get updates from. I would suggest that you avoid them and choose a local and reputable firm for you conveyancing work. Save yourself the headache!

      They seemed really cheap compared to other firms. In hindsight, I should have realised why this was.

      No-one to take calls (the phone rings and rings when you are put through to your "team"), if anyone is on holiday the whole system collapses and they have so much (presumably less than profitable) work that its piled high and dealt with on a "which client shouts the loudest" basis by the poor overworked sap its been "assigned" to.

      On top of this, when they correspond with other firms, they don't send a fax, they don't call them, they don't send an email, they don't send a letter by first class post - that's right - everything is sent by second class post to give them a week to get on with other work before the letter is received!

      Avoid, unless you want a conveyancing transaction to take 12 weeks to get to exchange (and the other party to possibly walk away due to frustration), rather than the usual 4 weeks.

      I received a terrible service from Birchall Blackburn. I always try and read reviews to investigate the services of a solicitor before using them and the reviews for this company all seemed fairly good. Unfortunately this did not prove to be the case for me. The service was agonizingly slow and on two separate occasions they gave out incorrect information to our estate agent despite my complaint after it happened on the first occasion. My initial solicitor went on maternity leave and I only found out when I telephoned them to complain about incorrect information and breach of confidentiality. No-one had advised me my case had been passed on to someone else for completion. The new solicitor did not prove to be very good either, he made mistakes on the paperwork when the process started to show signs of completion and failed to send paperwork stated as included in the documentation. Unfortunately I would not recommend this company to anyone based on my own experience.

      I hate to say, I received an awful service. The sale was only finalised on the day my mortgage offer expired; the only reason the deadline was made was because I took time out of work, on the day, to obtain the paperwork required to enable completion (which it came to light had already been sent a week prior). The sale was a no chain attached sale, which it took 7 months to complete (I was advised this would usually take 8 weeks at the most). I complained about the service I received and was advised it was normal for their firm to heavily rely (based on my experience) on their customers when purchasing a property. In which case, it would have been easier, faster & possibly cheaper for me to have arranged the sale myself (or with another firm with a higher standard of service). Given the work I ended up having to put in to complete the sale, I felt like I paid a lot of money for nothing. I even rang with a query at one point in regards to the sale and they were unable to advise me, so I was left to investigate myself. I would strongly advise, based on my experience, to avoid using this solicitors if at all possible. Unfortunately, the glowing reviews I saw online did not reflect the service I received and it has come to light that I am not alone in my experiences. In fact, in my area, it was apparently widely known to the locals that I should have avoided Birchall Blackburn at all cost, which I, unfortunately, only became aware of after their services were enlisted. I only hope, despite an unsatisfactory response to my queries in regards to the poor service I received, their firm handles future cases with more care and takes steps to prevent unnecessary delays. However, judging by the response I received, it appears they felt the service they provided was satisfactory, which does not bode well, as this is contrary to what other agencies, those involved with the sale and others who have purchased their own properties via other solicitors believe/would advise. I hope this review either serves to save others from the extra stress and delays I suffered as a result of using this firm or encourages Birchall Blackburn to shape up.

      Used Birchall Blackburn firm to purchase house in September 2012. Lisa Golland from their Manchester office was very very efficient and dealt with the whole thing in four weeks. I was charged £610 including searches compared with £835 I was quoted from a local solicitor in the North East. Most matters were dealt with via e mail and a few telephone calls. Two lots of paperwork to sign were sent through the post.
