      Terrible service. Has taken 7 months to move house, no communication during any of the process. Excuse after excuse after excuse. Information I sent over was left for weeks before passed on to the relevant parties and to top it off I was given a bill at 2pm, that was a lot more than originally quoted and told if i want to exchange that day in needed to be paid by 4pm.

      These guys are just a bunch of liars . They will say anything to blame other people for their own delay . After 3 months of waiting as a seller I am standing in the position with keys(empty house) in my hand and my (real) solicitor with contract in his hand from last 1 month and these guys are making one excuse after another . No objections , disputes received so far and they have received all the searches . Just need to a give us a date of exchange and all done . By the end of this week I will pull out and put the house back in the market . Next buyers just have to prove that this lot is not representing them .

      Completely agree with all of the other recent negative reviews. We have also been waiting for a straightforward remortgage to complete for over 2 months. No communication, dozens of phone calls made and emails sent without response, no escalation route and additional mortgage payments into the thousands as a result of this company's inability to obtain a redemption statement. Final straw today when they requested a redemption statement for the umpteenth time but not on headed paper - the exact same thing they failed to do over a month ago. Total ineptitude - avoid at all costs!

      Horrendous. As a result of their horrendous delays (which they accepted were their fault) our mortgage was delayed 2 months, from the end of Nov until the end of Jan - costing us £400 in extra interest paid alone, nevermind the excessive calls and time spent chasing. I complained, they accepted fault and offered £160. I explained this wasn't really acceptable as did not even cover the loss of interest and they said no further offer would be made. I went to the legal ombudsman, and Conveyancing Direct then said as.I was not their client (remortgage through Nationwide so technically Conveyancing Direct were appointed by Nationwide) they wouldn't compensate, even though accepting it was their fault. Absolute joke. Thank you for ruining Christmas though through a) the stress and b) loss of money.

      We have been dealing with conveyancing direct for a nationwide remortgage and I'm lost for words on how poor the service has been. Calls are fielded and you can never speak to the case handler as either at lunch or in a very long meeting. Our mortgage switchover is now 2 months overdue and we have been informed today conveyancing direct will take another 10 days to review the file. Awful- avoid this firm. If there were minus stars they'd definitely get them!!

      Your customer service is appalling. as try to get any information from your call centre is terrible. The case handler was slow on responding and then went on holiday with out handing over. I was told The mortgage company stated that the money had to be transferred to my solicitors account on the day of completion to be able to complete on that day. When I rang up on the day of completion I was informed that the money would be in their account by 17:30. I explained that if the money was not in my account by 15:30 we could not complete that day putting me in breach of my mortgage (the money was in my solicitors account for 16:15). Your company had the money on Friday so why was there a problem? I don't think you ever meet your 24 hour ring back target and if I was told that a mythical manager would ring me back one more time I would have screamed. There seems to be no body in your organisation that takes responsibility and deals with a problem.

      This company are acting on behave of the buyers of our house and I have never come across a company that is so incompetent of dealing collecting and processing information. They can't communicate properly as never answer calls or emails from our solicitors. The trouble is they are a call centre with call centre employees who aren't solicitors and spend less than an hour a day on there cases. You don't even get what you pay for, cheap does mean a cheap service

      Shocking, they sat on a mortgage, financial statements were incorrect, didn't file with land registry. Service is fronted by LMS on behalf of the mortgage company who chose this conveyancing company and they are just as bad. Found out they use junior staffing going through training who don't return calls. Apparently you can write to the CEO with your complaints, he choses to ignore emails. Ended up going to the law society with my complaint. Avoid and go somewhere else.

      Appalling and woeful. Have sat on a simple remortgage case for 6 weeks and still not even requested funds from the new lender. Deny receipt of documents sent by post . Fax line never answered. Long waits for phone to be answered and never able to get through to anyone that can make a decision. Not a single phone call or email ever replied to in 6 weeks. Never received such poor service from any Solicitor or Conveyancing firm in 20 years of property investing. This lot are a complete shower and an embarrassment to the profession. Don't even know the difference between a commercial lian and a residential mortgage. To add insult to injury they maintain an arrogance that they are the professionals and you the client are clearly ignorant. AVOID AVOID AVOID

      I have never had such a bad experience with a property lawyer. Used Conveyancing Direct to extend a lease which is a bit of paper signed by the leaseholder and the freeholder. Took 10 months!!! And throughout, Conveyancing Direct were absolutely rubbish. Terrible service. Will never respond to calls. Never provides updates. I ended up checking everthing they did and frequently found they were lying for the reasons for delays. An awful company and I urge people to steer clear!!

      Our experience using Convenancing Direct for a relatively straightforward, no chain, cash purchase of a property was appalling. It is impossible to get answers, no responses to emails, no return of phone calls. Documents supplied were lost and had to be resubmitted. The property agent was told we had signed the contract when we had not even seen the contract. Our deposit was temporarily 'lost' by their accounts department. Obtaining a closing statement was impossible. On the day of completion, we received an email to say they had miscalculated the funds received and needed more money. Do not trust this company with your money or your purchase! Also our final bill contained 700 of charges that were not in the original quote. We should report them.

      Very poor service, no communication at all from the law firm and seems like the case handler at law firm does not have a clue of the job she is doing. on 25/10/16 (three months go), I asked for completion on 3/1/17 and apart from usual excuses as waiting for replies still not completed even when it is close to two weeks over what completion date asked for. With the current situation, I am paying higher interest on my existing mortgage and law firm does not seem to care at all. I believe they should be paying me back the extra interest I paid because of non competent staff and also should compensate me for my stress

      very shocking company. Had issues with their level of competence on two remortgages. I did not have a choice due to the mortgage company using them but they use trainee solicitors, they don't respond to communications, their updates are poor and they are slow to respond. I am not concerned that they have not completed my remortgages properly.

      In line with all other recent comments - all documents were returned by me and I had no contact from them for over a month. Phone calls were ignored and even contacting my bank resulted in no response. If they have problems they should at least explain what is going on the solictor's regulation authority should take action about this firm.

      If I could give less than 1 star then I gladly would. Conveyancing Direct were appointed by Nationwide to handle our remortgage in early October 2016. We had a few problems initially with payslips and Nationwide which delayed us a little. Eventually our mortgage offer was recieved on the 8th December 2016. Had to chase CD every day. 90% off the time they don't answer the phone so had to chase through LMS. They eventually acknowledged reciept of offer but stated they got it 16th December?!! When I queried that they said it was a revised offer, thats news to me! They asked Leeds BS via email for redemption statement 21/12/16 so I rang Leeds for time frame and was told (And emailed a copy of statement) within 24 hours. CD STILL claim they don't have it and besides that they have reached the limit for completing remortgages this month????????? Now we are left on the SVR at Leeds till they can be bothered to do any work. Worst customer service ever, no compassion, no desire to help. Just read from a script to fob you off. Don't be taken for a ride by these people!

      Dont waste your time and money with Conveyancing Direct. We have struggled to get a clear picture of where we are within the process of buying / selling our house. We had contradicting updates from what our agents were getting, and there always seems to be one last thing. We agreed teh sale of house in Oct 15 and we have still not completed. DO NOT USE Conveyaning Direct.

      Terrible service! Do not use!

      I had my offer on a property accepted on 29th September 2015, I was pressurised into using Conveyancing Direct Property Lawyers through Connels Estate Agents as they basically offered me £1000.00 discount off the legal fee's which the vendor would be paying. At the time I thought this would be a good idea as myself and the vendor would be using the same solicitors which would help speed up the process.

      The chain was relatively small as the was only three house involved, the vendor of the house I am purchasing was moving into rented accommodation so this really should of been the easiest transaction.

      I paid for the searched to be completed at the start of October, I had these back at the end of November in which some had been dated 24th November so basically the solicitor had sat on these for 4-8 weeks. At this point I was receiving a lot of pressure from the lower chain threatening to walk away and I was in a position where I was forced to move out or the sale of my property was going to fall through. I moved out on the 17th December and had to put all my things into storage, as well as removal costs I am also payment monthly costs to store my belongings. Absolute joke when all this is down to the solicitors!

      The solicitor told me that they were awaiting answers back from search questions, if the searches would of been completed when I paid them then there would not of been any issues as the questions would of been answered. Answers to the questions were received on 18th December and I was told they would be reviewed on 21st December.

      I had communication again with the solicitor on 30th December and they stated that they would be ready to complete on the 8th January, this didn't happen as they were awaiting for a response back from my bank regarding releasing the funds, finally on Monday 10th they told me that they had a response back from the bank and it was nearly ready to go, they now said that the answers they received for the searches were not sufficient and they have to ask more questions, so again they have sat on this since 18th December and now I am in the waiting process again, if the answers were not sufficient they should of replied back on the review date of 21st December.

      As of today - 11th January 2016 I am still waiting for the question replies back and to confirm a moving date. I am now on the verge of pulling out of the purchase just on principle as 15 weeks is a joke for only a chain of three houses.

      Do not be fooled into using these by Connels Estate Agents as they are part of the same company.

      I would never recommend this firm. As a result of their failure to communicate effectively (phone calls were made to us (allegedly) but no message left, for instance) our Mortgage Offer lapsed without any reference to us. They failed to inform us of critical documents that they needed and did not take action to let us know that they needed these documents that were delaying the mortgage. This resulted in us losing our booking fee of £150. No apology has been forthcoming nor an offer to compensate us for our loss..

      I hate to think how much longer our sale will take.
      They were recommended by our Agents so I didn't check them out. Schoolboy error and one I deeply regret.

      Stay clear is all I can say. This firm are the worse I have ever come across and that is saying something as I have moved around 10 times over the past 15 years. They lose paperwork, don't reply to correspondence and you have to do all the leg work for them and chase constantly.

      Don't waste your money on this bunch - get a proper solicitor. The stress levels due to their incompetency have been sky high. Lots of sleepless nights and has ruined what should be an exciting time.

      So so disappointed with the way how they deal with us! Won't answer to e mails, nor to messages, misspelt my partner name, myself not even mentioned in any documents. They bought policy which we never asked . Tried to charge us 1700£ for their service!! They didn't tell us up from about costs, or any charges even after multiply asking...We already 3 months away and nothing done so far. Won't get things sorted , between buyer and vendor. So arrogant, unprofessional. We pull out soon and rather loose the house, because I'm so angry I could just cry!!!

      Absolutely shocking! Still trying to get my house sale and purchase through as we speak. I've chased them the whole way; added hidden charges in the small print, refuses to phone back as its her first day back from holiday how should that affect me? No chain and it looks like it will take 10-12 weeks, pathetic! The buyer is with them too so should be double as quick! They say they only have to reply within 24hrs to any requests made by client. Ahhh so frustrating! Customer service is non existent you leave msg after msg they say they will ring back they when you complain they say they are busy. I would not use them again ever!

      Being someone who is selling a house and the purchaser is using this firm, I have to agree with you. This is a shocking firm.

      I had the same experience with them. House is vacant. The lawyer in this firm giving me and the seller mixed massages. I managed to find this out by speaking to the seller directly. Left massages to the lawyer 2 days no response. In two weeks I'll be homeless if the sale don't get through. I'm so much stressed because of this and I have a 1 year old daughter too. Will never recommend them to anybody.. in fact the seller said the same to me.

      Awful please never use! Terrible at communicating, always need chasing up, cannot find mail and open emails late, have absolutely no understanding of customer services, over priced, add fees to the bill without asking. Led to me to believe I was exchanging when I wasn't, emotional stress and upset whilst I am homeless between purchases. NEVER USE THIS COMPANY YOU OR WILL REGRET IT!!
      Do not deserve any stars.

      Absolute shambles and massively overpriced. Be careful of sneaky fees and them acting without your consultation and consent.

      Shambles - disorganised that I have to keep calling and chasing them for updates, failed to take payments hence calling me up for payments multiple payments even after completion and I paid case tracking fee! Caused emotional distress to myself.

      Overpriced and hidden fees - the fee they charge for arrangement of my insurance was almost 3x's the premium! Charging extra for sending copy of all docs to myself while it's free for lender, 2 (why 2) electronic transfer fee@GBP54 each. Paid GBP1500 in the end due to being charged fees left, right and centre.

      Without consent - was charged for insurance arrangement and premium without being told what they were for.

      WILL NOT EVER USE AGAIN OR RECOMMEND THEM!
