I would not recommend. Communication was poor, advice was incorrect. Try a different firm.

Starting from a point of ignorance, a detailed analysis of firms undertaking private property disputes, Blacks were first longlisted to one of six and then shortlisted to one of three.
James Teague, Head of Property Dispute was efficient, matter of fact, pleasant and knowledgeable and gave me just over an hour o n the phone going advising me on initial steps, likely costs which was much appreciated. Case is only just commencing.

Shockingly slow and made a simple house sale ridiculously stressful. Rude, unhelpful, obstructive, avoid at all costs.

Avoid like the plague. Completely inept and incompetent. Caused the collapse of my property chain due to their appalling delays.

One could be forgiven for thinking this is a well known supplier of camping goods. This is because they use trainee conveyancers/solicitors for house sales

I am having a remortgage dealt with by blacks, the service is absolutely appalling, do not answer phone, do not reply to emails do not call back, are not upto date with the case, I could go on.
For your own sanity, do not use. (You have been warned)

Absolutely dreadful. Don’t go anywhere near this firm. Easy house transaction, elderly grandma to a new flat, grandson buys the house with mortgage in place. What can possibly go wrong? Answer, everything. Stalling, abysmal communication. Lying about the process. Last minute things happening out of the blue. 4 differ3nt dates to complete so far and we are not there yet. One star is one too many

Blacks is the worst firm of solicitors I have ever dealt with. They are unprofessional, inefficient and incompetent. I would never use them again or recommend them to anyone. If recommended by Purple bricks - say no thank you.

Dealt with blacks as part of the package with purple bricks. Had an on going sale with them for 6 months.
Had an absolute dreadful experience. No calls back or emails , being passed around the company to different solicitors. Waiting for weeks for responses.
Rang purple bricks who said they had spoke to them bit still nothing happens. Would never have these again worse expeience of my life. After months of ringing round and chasing after a date still no response. Thos has causes me so much anxiety and stress its affected my work and my home life. We are litteraly living out of boxes and have no furniture after giving these away to make room in the new house we was promised we would be in a month ago. DO NOT USE EITHER
DREADFUL

Absolutely dreadful!!!! Unfortunately, if you go with the Purplebricks recommendation, you don't know upfront who the conveyancer will be - probably so you can't read the reviews. No return emails, no call backs, phone gets put down if you call in. Unresponsive to buyer solicitor enquiries, incomplete paperwork was submitted and literally no advice provided. I did reach out to the managing partner via LinkedIn and then finally received a response once. Escalation path provided went nowhere, too. Do not use if you have a choice, it'll cause you delays and a lot of stress and headaches! Would give negative stars if possible.

Advised by purple bricks to use Blacks solicitors. They deny receiving document 3 weeks after they have been sent but when you give them evidence ie recorded delivery receipt they miraculously tell you it has just been given to them!!! They use para legals who are incompetent and who deny receiving documents. If using purple bricks, avoid Blacks (who they recommend) at all costs.
