I was completely overwhelmed with how professional Nicola Ford was when dealing with the purchase of my flat. We were dealing with an extremely difficult seller. Not only did they not have â€˜their ship in orderâ€™ but were rude and difficult. Nicola was efficient, friendly and understood my challenges as a buyer. Being a first time buyer Nicola held my hand through all the processes and helped keep me sane! Thank you and I have already recommended you to my friend immediately!

Looked at Cooper Ford after being recommended by a friend who had recently made a house purchase. The fees were very fair and operated only on completion instead of upfront. I found the two people I dealt with (Carole Appleby - now retired - and Nicola Ford) very helpful and friendly, always advising me of exactly what was happening and the next steps involved. My completion took longer than I expected (just over 4 months), but only due to the sellers' position (not being able to complete before the end of Jan 2013) and also the sellers' solicitors not always providing the information requested in adequate time. Even while I was on holiday, Nicola kept me up to date and told me immediately if anything changed. It would be nice to see an internet portal where I could see the status of any documents, stages, etc and make payments, but this is only a nicety, nothing really detracts from the very good service and level of professionalism that I received using Cooper Ford as my conveyancer for my very nice flat! Thank you very much for everything!

I have always used a local solicitor for all my legal / conveyancing requirements but their recent quote for some straightforward conveyancing was quite expensive so I decided to try Cooper Ford Solicitors.
I have been very impressed with their service particularly from Melissa Kirkham who kept me updated as the sale progressed & was always available to answer any questions / queries by phone.
Their charges were straightforward & their final bill matched their original quotation. Overall I received a very professional service. I will use this firm of solicitors again.

However, Melissa was great with her determination to move things along and kept me fully informed along the way as well. I was sure that without her help the sale would have been delayed even longer.

Found them online was approximately 50 % cheaper than local solicitors so decided to give them ago.
Its been a nightmare from the start, now months down the road and still not exchanged contracts or anything. Really disappointed, been informed today that the seller is withdrawing the contracts. So I am really angry. Some times saving costs doesnt actually do you any favours.
I have called, emailed and chased regularly and still no further in the process. Been a really bad experience and to be frank would never use any of these "Online firms" again
As clearly they have too many cases to work on at anyone time and I actually feel sorry for my appointed solicitor. She is on the front line and needs support with the amount of cases they have to handle on a day to day basis.
But as with all these companies its not the quality if the work its about how many cases they have to balance at anyone time and the more cases the better (More Â£Â£Â£ right)
Perhaps the management team could review internal processes and see why things take so long. Simple tasks shouldn't take so long and a simple request should surely be actioned with in a short period of time, rather than taking weeks.
My advise would be to steer clear, who are these people that have left positive reviews? Seriously?
Perhaps if you live locally you do get a first class service. Us online savers have no chance as we cant so easily turn up and demand an answer there and then.
I dont normally leave reviews but i am so angry and frustrated with this situation and feel other people need to be warned before making a decision to use these online companies. Admittedly your not paying for a first rate service but at the end of the day your the customer and a customer deserves a reasonable service right?

I was referred to this buy an agency and all I can say is steer well clear! They were absolutely terrible to deal with. I finally moved in to my new home in November 2011 and I am being chased (march 2012) by inland revenue for my stamp duty which was paid to this terrible solicitor. The solicitor dealing with my purchase was never around to answer my call or emails. I left messages but no reply. I ended up making a complaint to the owners and they took over my file. I was due cash back from my new mortgage which I had to chase several times only to be told "oh yes we didn't notice the payment was sent from the lender!' Good job I was on the ball!!
I have never reviewed a solicitor before as they are mostly the same but I had to air my experience with everyone as I'm so unhappy!

Totally agree with the previous review. I got the same treatment and more!
No communication from them throughout my sale/purchase. They NEVER contacted me.(oh, except when they were signing me up - I should have realised that the poor spelling in their standard letters was a sign on things to come!) Any contact was instigated by me.
I made it clear to them on many occasions that I was unhappy with the service, but nothing changed.
I was allocated a solicitor, then found out he has left - via the estate agent for the house we were buying!
The day we completed, even though they knew we would be on the road as well as packing/loading (I was moving over 60 miles), I didn't hear anything from them - and late afternoon when we had a stop, i just happened to check my email on my iphone - they had actually been emailing me to let me know what was happening! (that was a first! ) How ridiculous is that!? Checking email on the day I moved wasn't high on my list of priorities!
Still owed money from my sale and have unanswered questions - but as usual can't get a response from them.
Would I recommend them? The only recommendation I will give is - run a mile in the opposite direction!!!
1 star only because I had to.

I'm reading all these comments about how fantastic Cooper Ford Law are, but to be honest I feel like I must be using a completely different service because my experience has been terrible.
Staff have consistently been rude, patronising and unhelpful towards me, the solicitor is always away from his desk or out at lunch when I call and he NEVER returns the calls, neither does he respond to my emails - the situation was so bad I had to call up conveyencing UK to get them to call Cooper Ford to speak to me on my behalf just so that I could get an update on what was actually happening with my flat! Even then, they didn't call back until a second reminder from conveyencing UK. I wouldn't have minded if they'd politely given me a valid reason for why things weren't running smoothly, but instead of explaining anything, they just covered things up, fobbing me off each time and turning into robots anytime I asked a direct question. If there is a reason for why they can't talk to me, then I just need to know why!
The icing on the cake is when I called today and was told my solicitor "is out at lunch". Over an hour later I called back, and a different woman answered and said he's "out at lunch". Really??? Either one (or both) of them were lying, or they unwittingly revealed that these solicitors take more than an hour for lunch despite the company being "overloaded with work" as they claimed since the departure of two of their staff.
I also tried calling at 4.30 last night and was told the solicitor was away and to call back at 5. I said "don't you close at 5?" and the response was "yes, but we'll make sure your call is answered". I called back at 5, and I got an answerphone message: "Sorry, but our office hours are Monday to Friday 9am to 5pm. Please call back at these hours."
I've been so horrified by the weird little games that the people in this company seem intent on playing on their clients and I will not be recommending this firm to anybody.
