Foys were very efficient during the sale of our complex property. Roger Colphon was very accessible, pleasant and effective. He kept us informed at each stage. I would recommend Foys to family and friends without hesitation. Thanks again

Please be aware FOYS completed conveyancing for our property this as left us with loads of issues from (unsafe boiler .Property not registered on completion.Restrictive covenants not explained only to make ourselves aware of them ?The conveyancing executive (CM) did not have ultimate responsibility for our conveyancing this was someone else whom we had never met or spoken too.Her name never appeared on any documents .
.A conveyancing executive is not a fully trained solicitor .So please be aware this is the third property i have purchased and we have never add these issues in prior purchases .

From our first appointment through to completion the service we received was excellent. It was a difficult time due to a bereavement and we appreciated the compassion and care . All the necessary legal procedures were explained in a clear manner and throughout the entire process we were kept informed of the current position.

I had a complex probate application, which I took to Foys. Lee dealt with this for me and the probate office issued the Grant very quickly, despite all the Covid restrictions/delays. This demonstrates the depth of his knowledge, and the peace of mind you can have, as Lee deals with it for you. He was extremely professional and polite throughout.

Very disappointing customer approach. I have been waiting for paperwork to be sent for 1 week, then learned my case was transferred to another branch, who had no idea of transfer. When I called the new branch, I've learned there are so many emails coming in we don't have time to read them all.... How about you tell your customer that in advance ?

Excellent service by Lee Hunter who was knowledgeable, approachable and gave sound help and advice in related matters not covered by his direct services.
The final fees exceeded the initial estimate but this was due to delays and additional services being required over the 4+ years period of the case. I was advised of the increased cost well before those costs were incurred – Lee was very open and transparent in this area.
I would recommend Lee to others.

Thank you so much to Lee Hunter at Foys Solicitors. The service was thoroughly professional and the advice succinct. The probate process was really speedy given Mum died in lockdown. I would thoroughly recommend the Wills and Probate Department. The pricing didn't vary from the original quote and payment was not requested until after I had received all the relevant paperwork.

I wish to take this opportunity to recommend Lee Hunter, from Foys in Doncaster. From the outset he listened to us with sensitivity and advised us with thoughtfulness, dedication and respect. He is knowledgeable, considered and above all, caring; he cares about his clients and served us with great attention to detail. We really cannot recommend him enough. As my husband and I set out, rather blindly and with no prior legal experiences, to write our Wills, we remarked how important it must be to find a good solicitor; having met and worked with Lee Hunter, we can safely confirm that we have found ours. Needless to say, we will return to Lee for all our future legal needs. Thank you Foys of Doncaster for such excellent service.

We decided we wanted a Will and could not have been happier with the service provided by Lee Hunter from the Doncaster office, he provided a very attentive and personal service! He got us to think about scenarios and options that we wouldn’t have otherwise thought of and made the whole process very easy and straight forward.

I’ve used Foys in Doncaster for a couple of reasons, one was property related and another for probate. In both cases the staff have been helpful, compassionate, professional and efficient. Our family is particularly grateful for all the work Lee Hunter has done for us in relation to probate. It was a difficult time and he went out of his way to support us and gave us some excellent advice. Further, we have found their charges to be reasonable in all our dealings with them, they charged a fixed fee which helps you know what to expect, so wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them heartily!

The process of applying for probate and completing my mother’s estate was handled with care compassion and understanding despite some issues arising with delays in the probate services, needing additional affidavits and other complications. I was happy that I could communicate with Lee in a timely manner and if he wasn’t available his secretary was always happy to help and returned my calls promptly at what is a stressful time. Although I had collected the information together to apply for probate the expertise provided was invaluable and I am sure I wouldn’t have been able to navigate the process myself. The cost was approx £1700 and well worth the money

I was recently made redundant and was urged by the HR Department to have my terms of redundancy reviewed by a solicitor. I had used Foy's before for my will and had no problem with using them again. I was put in touch with Mr Makol who, from the word go, handled my case great efficiency, and made the transition from the original redundancy offer to my being paid very smooth. I would definitely recommend this service to others in the same situation.

Anuj Makol helped me with an employment matter. I had difficulty initially finding a suitable solicitor who didnt just offer compensation claim assistance but on contacting Foys branch at Chapeltown I was put in touch with Mr Makol who very kindly arranged an appointment very quickly as I needed some paperwork reviewed and advice before signing within a very short turnaround. He was very thorough and explained things clearly and the cost was reasonable. I would recommend this gentleman.

Unfortunately I found the solicitor to be unhelpful and found that they only provided advice I could (and had already) found using internet search engines. They didn't seem interested in helping me at all and didn't bother to read the ample documentation I brought in. I got the opinion the "free" advice they offer is not worth their time and if your not paying £200 per hour they don't want to listen or indeed help with your problem. Safe yours and their time and effort and avoid.

I used Foys to purchase a purpose build flat in 2016 and it took them 5 months to complete the contract. The documents received after almost 5 months were wrong, names, address, even the land registry number was not right. If you do not want to chase them on daily basis and to make sure you buy the property, I would not recommend them. Appalling service and I wish I knew.

Had the misfortune of having to deal with Dayne from this firm. To summarize terrible service, inexperienced and incompetent staff, aggressive and confrontational communication style. Purchase of the property was delayed by a week and it became obvious that the conveyancer was inexperienced in processing the transaction even though we were assured by Indeed, the company which passed us on the Foys, that they only work with the most highly rated firms. We did receive a written apology from them and compensation for 150 GBP however, I would suggest avoiding them like the plague and pay the additional 200 GBP to a firm that actually knows what they are doing and understand what customer service entails.
