I had a problem with a neighbour whose tree roots were growing in my alley way. I did not want to argue with the neighbour just wanted to part with the roots without damaging their small tree.
Birtkett Long sent me a surveyor who went onto the visit of my property taking pictures telling me he could not take any side without checking with me, the owner. I paid more than 1000 for that survey, Birkett Long did not do anything but sending that man more than 3 weeks after my request and guess what they just sent me another invoice claiming I owe them money for neighbour disputes! REALLY?!

This company has gone so badly down hill in the years i have known them it beggars belief why we did business with them.
Ive never once had an occasion with them where there hasn't been some drama or over reaction with them. (The appear to enjoy or thrive on trouble).
My current experience with them is nothing short of scandalous during a very vulnerable time and situation I will not be using them again and wouldn't recommend this firm to anybody.
Its a shame they cant focus some of that bully tactic to the opposite side, as they displayed when in dispute with my complaint.
They took over the indemnity of a well known local practise that my family were linked to for over 40 years and what a hash up that's been for us.
With my case in particular this is a firm that will not admit when its wrong and adopts any means to wheedle out of serious issues, with disgruntled clients such as myself.
Roll on my complaint to the legal services ombudsman.
(This review is my own opinion and perception based on our experiences of the legal services we have received from this firm).
