Chadwick Lawrence LLP

Conveyancing/property

1 stars

19/07/19 - Reviewed by Dan

Used these guys for purchase of my property and they were ok. The process took longer than it should of but was done in the end.

Instructed them again when selling. After filling in the initial paperwork I didn't hear anything from them and the estate agents couldn't get in contact either. Never responded to emails and phone calls. Have wasted weeks with them and potentially losing out on a property as buyers can't wait around. Take your money to someone who will get the job done properly.

26/06/19 - Reviewed by Anonymous

I just wanted to leave an honest review to hopefully prevent people from making the same mistake as we did by choosing this firm of solicitors to act on our behalf when purchasing a new property. We ended up taking the firm to the Legal Ombudsman who found that the company had “ failed to alert us” to some key information about the dangerous electrics of the house we were buying. They stated this “is poor service” and prevented us from having the option to negotiate the cost of the work from the asking price and/or withdrawing from the purchase. This was obviously quite an important and significant factor to miss and, despite receiving some compensation, has ultimately left us significantly out of pocket with getting the required work done. Hopefully this review can at least help others make a more informed decision about the level of service and risks involved with choosing this firm when purchasing their own property based on our experiences.
