Appalling service from this law firm, who were instructed on our behalf by SAM Conveyancing (also appalling). Every single staff member was very rude and unfriendly and it took 3 or 4 chasers / voicemails before they replied on anything. Ignored our queries. In the end they held up our sale and probably added 3-4 weeks to the process. Use a quality law firm and avoid this place at all costs

Dealt with Lashana via Sam Convyenacing. No idea how these guys are still in business. Do not respond to emails/phone calls and act like you are inconveniencing them when you ask simple questions or make straightforward requests. They will hold up your sale/purchase and cause you unnecessary stress. They don't read any of the legal documents and just approve them without question - very negligent and we had to review all docs ourselves to spot errors and inaccuracies. Avoid this horrible firm at all costs and pay a little bit more for a firm that actually cares!

Absolutely appalling service from Lashana and her "supervisor" Helen who did nothing at all. Missed basic provisions in the documentation. Unresponsive to emails and phone calls. Acted like I was an inconvenience. Avoid this cowboy firm at all costs!

Solicitor was almost impossible to get hold of. The one meeting we had with her was mostly spent with her telling us about her home, children and her 'huge' car. She was very lacklustre and showed no urgency when it was required.

In truth, they are wholly abysmal. The slow pace at which they work could perhaps be forgiven if the solicitor happened to possess the ability to be remotely polite. However this is not the case. I found them to be extremely rude and uncooperative. Seem to forget that they are working for you, not doing you a favour. Avoid at any and all costs, there’s a reason that they are one of the cheapest.

unfortunately all the negative reviews are completely accurate. I also used Chadwick Lawrence who provided a absolutely rubbish service. No response to emails or calls mostly.

They have provided a bare minimum service. Throughout the proccess you have no clue as to what is happening. Even though you are paying for the service they behave as if they are doing you a favour.

I am baffled as to how the company is still in business.

Your best bet is to pay a bit more and go with a respectful firm. It will save you a ton of stress and probably mpney also in the long run.

Absolutely horrendous service. They don't answer phone calls or reply to emails. So far I have called Paulette 4 times since Monday (its now Thursday), left 2 voice messages asking for a call back and nothing. This seems to be their standard service. Tons and tons of chasing which really slows things down.

They are slow, rude, unhelpful and provide an awful service. I was passed on to them by SAM conveyancing. I wish I never had to deal with this company.

Seriously negligent

We've recently bought a share of a flat, and we did receive several letters from the HMRC letting us know that our stamp duty was not payed.

After more than 4 months of dealing with long email chains with the solicitors and endless calls with the HMRC, they claim they have solved the problem. Yet I still don't have a written confirmation from the HMRC that they have paid my stamp duty.

I'm now claiming for a refund due to their negligent service but I have to go through an endless complaint procedure in order to do so.

I would seriously consider any other solicitor service before Chadwick Lawrence. This is one of those cases where Reviews are actually true!!!

This solicitors firm charges for mere communication for example emails which were not informative or useful in the slightest. Their response rate is non existent and a reply is rare. I had to constantly chase them up, they would lie and say their staff was not in the office or not well and instead of briefing another staff member to take on my case they made me wait. They have taken thousands from me and I am still not at court level to handle my dispute . My case should be an open and shut case. They offered conflicting and questionable advice in order to send more letters which were not nessesary . I have now contacted the solicitors regulation authority and ombudsman to claim my money back

Don't bother with this company, absolute waste of time.
They long out every process to get more money out of their customers.
Their customer service the bad, if you want a stress free process stay away from these guys.

Worst Solicitors out there. Communication poor, attention to detail poor, nearly lost a property as their solicitors are a joke.

Worth paying slightly more to get the service.

Avoid at all costs!

Terrible, One of the worst companies I've had to deal with. Don't know what information to give, always making us jump through hoops and never getting back to you.
When you do get information or reply from them, you most likely get a standard response or the wrong information.
Never apologised or tried to be better.

Really poor service. They’re cheep but for a reason. Would rather have payed more and recieved less stress. I was always having to chase them up as they don’t let you know what’s going on, and they don’t respond to emails until days later. Incompetently slow. Would not recommend to anyone. If I could have given no stars I would have.

The service has been the worst possible not only didn't they get mums Will signed before she died but the conflicting advice they have just caused arguments amongst the family getting them arguing so Chadwick Lawrence made money out of it. You phone and ask for a solicitor so mum can make a Will as she's dying, Susan Preece came quickly mum made a Will then it was left for her to come back a week later, she was called again 2 days later to say mum had deteriated and needed to have the Will witnessed urgently, there was no urgency on their part and unfortunately mum passed away before Will was witnessed therefore getting more money out of it although I suggested the neighbour come and witness the Will on her first visit but her reply was I like to bring my Secretary as it gets her out of the office. Absolutely would not recommend they are useless and would recommend going elsewhere.

Slow, lazy and unable or unwilling to comprehend and deal with fairly simple procedural matters. Even when being spoon-fed information. I engaged them through a conveyancing agent who claimed their USP was communication and customer relationship, but I have bought 8 properties and this was by far the worst company I have worked with. At one point appeared to be on the side of the vendor as it was easier for them to do that. Incredibly disrespectful.

Service appaling..constantly having to chase up.
They were so slow to respond to enquiries that the mortgage offer expired! Then I had to apply for a new one!
Do not recommend at all. Any other brick and mortar conveyancer will be better. Save yourself the stress. It's not worth it no matter how much cheaper they claim to be!

Please do not use for conveyancing. The communication has been appalling, the speed at which anything is progressed has been appalling. Constantly having to chase up every day and nothing happens. The solicitor dealing with our case is hardly every in the office, and the PA is clueless as to what is happening.
