DO NOT USE THIS FIRM.
We have reported to the SRA for misconduct. This firm have kept nearly £50000 awarded, by court order. The Money was paid to the client account at Latimer Lee and they have not transferred.
Refuse all requests for copies of client account and requests were made formally they have just stopped communicating.
Complete stop in communication from Giselle Williams, Jocelyn Latimer and Stephen Latimer.

Avoid at all costs. Will update with progress from SRA.

Absolutely shocked and disgusted by this so called company, how is it possible that companies are able to operate like this this day and age.

I have called no less than six times and asked for a call back each time I was promised Jocelyn would call me back each time was a lie
Everyone knows these are troubling times and I fully expect slower progress but not even 1 email or phone call for an update.

Also the shambles of a company instead of posting back my passport to me have posted it to the property I am purchasing leaving me to have to negotiate getting it back I still have no idea where it is

I had no choice but to ask for a refund of the initial fee I must add that i thought it strange that they asked for part payment upfront in the first place.


An absolute shambles of a company stay far away !!

I really wish I could leave 0 stars

Latimer Lee I am shocked at the unprofessionalism you have shown me and my mother in purchasing a home. Even on my property summary there was mistakes, written by a trainee solicitor. I asked for simple letter by Emma Lovell based at the Bury Branch, left several emails and phone call has not had the courtesy to reply back to me. I am not happy at all because not only is she waiting my time but it the poor lack of commitment toward her clients like me are still in hope to get a call back, I have asked for a simple letter for help to buy isa to be reinstated and she didn't do that.... you are so unprofessional and not commited at all to your job!!!!! :@ people like Emma make life harder for clients.

Extremely poor. They do not even respond to formal complaints! If you cannot find details for and then deal with the other solicitors in person the sale will probably fall through because Latimer Lee will not do their job.

This company is currently under investigation with the SRA with regards to their practices surrounding wills and probate. Can I urge anybody who has had a bad experience surrounding this (or indeed other areas of their practice), to put a complaint in to the SRA (Solicitors Regulatory Authority). It is a straight forward process where you fill in an online form.

Good try, but most formal complaints against solicitors require you to lodge a complaint directly with the firm first. Latimer Lee do not respond to anything, including formal complaints to management, making it hard to take it further...

You can report a Solicitor to the SRA if you think they have acted dishonestly and not in your best interests. Check out the SRA principles and Code of Conduct. If you feel they are in breach of these, it’s grounds to put in a complaint. Poor/slow service is a matter for the Legal Ombudsman, but if your complaint is about serious misconduct - the SRA is the way to go.

Hannah, did they suggest they appoint themselves as Executors and/or Property Trustees at all? Please check this and if so please check if it is necessary for you to have them as Executors. It is my family's experience that they appointed themselves as Executors of my late Father's will totally unnecessarily in order to charge extortionate fees to deal with his estate after his death. If your will is straight forward you do not need a professional Executor, it is in your best interests to appoint a trusted family member.

I could not agree more. This company offered my elderly parents a 'free will', appointing themselves as Executor and Property Trustees without explaining their options to appoint a Lay Person. We have only discovered this after my dad's death and they now want to charge extortionate fees. My mum is still with us and has full capacity. Fees were not explained, options were not explained and they appointed themselves as if this was 'the norm' exploiting my parents lack of knowledge in order to make financial gains. My mum has now changed her will appointing family as Executors. Avoid like the plague .

I made the mistake to go for the cheapest. Latimer Lee probably had far too many clients to deal with, and could not do a proper job. That was quite bad, no info, always late...very very late, blaming the other solicitor...I was in direct contact with the buyer and it was clear Latimer Lee was the bottleneck.
I would definitely not recommend them.

I used this firm because they had my mother's will held there. I wished I had not because they were slow, incompetent and customer service was not the best I have come across when dealing with a law firm.

I met the senior partner to discuss estate probate and the meeting went on for around an hour where the partner was happy to chat, quoting a figure of 'about £1,500 for a straightforward estate'. The probate work rolled on very slowly to the point where I had to keep ringing or emailing for feedback, but this was problematic in that the (part-time) staff was not available. Some six months later there was talk of receiving probate, then this trundled on to 10 months. Then a sale of family property to add to the estate, which was sold in 24 hours and monies transferred to Latimer-Lee, but sadly it was another five months before any progress was made. The total time in dealing with a 'straightforward estate' took One Year and two months and came to a total of £6,000. I would not recommend this firm unless you have a long time to spare and not too concerned about budgets.

I needed a Will doing urgently and i called around to get prices. They where all quite expensive but i couldn’t get an appointment until a couple of weeks. I called Latimer Lee and got booked in the next day with their dedicated Will Writer at home. He came and was extremely helpful with advice on inheritance and Lasting powers of attorney. They are now currently dealing with the sale of my flat and so far have been excellent would definitely recommend them!

To call these people incompetent is an understatement. Contacted them following my mothers death, mother having appointed them as executors of her will. Three months down the line, checking on progress told original solicitor had left, I was not informed, also told there was a 3 month delay at the Probate Court. Rang the Probate Court to check and found Probate had been granted two weeks earlier, turns out it was was sat on senior partners desk. Was then asked in for meeting with the senior partner she wanted to be brought to date up with work carried out by previous solicitor and was charged for it, they lost a number documents that had been submitted to them earlier, including the death certificate of my God Mother who had been named as a beneficiary of the will. They only ever responded when I contacted them by phone or email. They charged £9500.00 inv vat for the privilege of their incompetence. Will be contacting Legal Ombudsman. Avoid like the plague.

Really terrible service throughout the entire buying/selling process. They have two separate teams who don't seem to speak to each other that doesn't help and we found actually speaking direct to our purchaser was far more efficient. However, you kind of expect this with solicitors.

The big issue was our solicitor at Latimer Lee, dealing with the purchase, forgot to pass on the intended moving date to our seller (that we and our buyer had been working to for a month) and we only found out the week we were due to move that this wasn't workable for our seller and had never been communicated to them. This ended up costing us over £600 in removal and storage costs and we were effectively homeless for a week.

When we made a formal complaint to Latimer Lee they said they'd investigate and despite chasing this up with them they haven't had the decency to get back to us over a month later. I'd avoid this company at all costs.

Shockingly bad service. Auto updates are over compensatory measures to try and mask the fact that they are not actually doing anything until you push them. I have resolved several legal issues myself as I was able to do it quicker than my solicitor with local council/developers etc. Unfriendly, formal and ridged approach with a can't do attitude.

Please avoid like the plague. They make a very sad situation impossibly worse. They use very sharp practise to extract more money out of you than is fair. They charged over £6k (plus VAT) on a straightforward will with no complications and all documentation provided - maybe a day's work in total. They are rude and non responsive and hold you to minutia in their T&Cs.

As for follow up a year down the line to try and rid us from these con men, forget it - i will have to go to the ombudsman for help

The service we received was excellent, it was the first time we have bought a house so was nervous and didn't really know the process. Once we had our offer accepted we had to choose a solicitor, i got a couple of quotes but found latimer lee quote the easiest to understand and listed all possible costs. Throughout the process we receive automatic email and text messages updating us on the process. Every time i need to speak to my solicitor Howard i managed to speak or received a call back instantly. The process from start to finish took around about 6 weeks.

I should have read the reviews given to this company before appointing them. If you're going through divorce or issues with business partners then don't bother hiring them. They assumed they have done their jobs whether it's in your favour or not then demanded for their fees and will threaten you to go to court if you chose to challenge them. I spent £3000 on them and nothing was quite actually resolved until I called it a day and appointed another solicitor who did it for less. It's all about how many hours they took to write the emails and charged you on the minutes they talked to you! Absolutely waste of time and money!

Contacted them to obtain some documentation. They kept promising a deadline date but did not fulfill this. Very poor attitude and shocking professional service. Stay well away and use a personal recommendation.

Absolutely appalling service. Had to constantly chase and get totally on top of them to get anything done - complained to a partner which only marginally made a difference. Used them for a property purchase mid-2014 and was just checking online Nov16 to see if they have got any better - which clearly they haven't. If you want a massive amount of stress added, choose Latimer Lee. Never again.

Quite terrible overall - at first they seemed quite efficient and helpful with their online progress site, but then the feedback quickly dried up, contact with my representative became nigh on impossible and at one point i received mail asking me to sign a document so the sale for the house i was buying could go ahead?!?!? I was selling a property NOT buying!
Maybe good for straight forward sales but if there's a slight hiccup they fall apart.....and DON'T expect to receive a call/email back! Terrible communication......really really TERRIBLE!!

Shockingly poor service. Garbled advice by letter. Never returned phone calls. I basically think that they process paperwork for simple house sales and as soon as it gets even slightly complex they crumble.

He was my solicitor regarding a compensation claim due to a road traffic collision. He’s very professional and compassionate. Also, he kept me updated with any progress about our case. Thank you so much solicitor Malcolm for all the effort! At long last, we got a favorable decision.

Needed Latimer Lee to handle a litigation matter - was advised that the solicitor dealing with the matter was a trained barrister and was more than capable of attending court to argue my case. If he was their best, then I would hate to see their worst! My 5 yr old grandson can argue a point better than the solicitor did - maybe I should have saved myself some money and stress! Needless to say, the Judge threw the case out of court at considerable expense to me. Would never consider using them again.

I had the misfortune of having Latimer Lee handle the sale of my property recently - what a shambles. They ignored phone calls/e-mails, fobbed me off with excuses usually along the lines "oh, there's no one around who can deal with that!" or somebody was off sick or blaming the other side. Their fees were excessive - I regret having them deal with the sale but it won't happen again!

Dreadful - do not use EVER! Handled estate of family member and took FOREVER to conclude matters - excuse after excuse - house sale took 15 months to complete to a first-time buyer with no chain! Stay well clear - you will be glad you did!

Very slow to the point where nothing happens for weeks on end. It is very difficult to get though the call centre to the solicitor.

They do not respond to emails at all I found the whole experience very frustrating and I would certainly not use them again.

Patricia handles my estate planning issues and is extremely responsive, smart, and easy to work with. I am a lawyer myself and I wonder about how she can discuss extremely complex legal issues in a manner that is basic and straightforward. I would recommend them for any legal issues you may have.

Malcolm was incredible. Friendly and knowledgeable. Having a small car accident is no joke, not to mention a huge one, however, Malcolm played out all the best/most pessimistic scenario situations which helped me decide. Staff is friendly and the meetings are productive. I didn't meet any other individual, however if I got into a really terrible crash God willing I won't ever, I would come straight to Latimer Lee Solicitors office.

I have recently used LLS for the sale of my property and the purchase of another, I have found them to be excellent! Everything went smoothly and I saved hundreds of pounds compared to conventional solicitors.
All my calls and e-mails were dealt with promptly and efficiently by Mr Peter Wittham. I will not hesitate to recommend LLS to friends and family

My solicitor contacted my buyer's solicitor Lattimerlee on Monday at 15.30 to confirm that we are ready to exchange contracts. Lattimerlee told my buyers that they were ready to exchange 2 weeks ago. It is now Friday night and Lattimerlee have ducked out of exchanging everyday of this week with the following excuses: we need to review the file; there is no one qualified in to office to authorise the exchange; someone qualified needs to review the file; and the one used every single day - it is too late in the day to do anything now.

Absolutely awful company. It should not be allowed to continue trading!

I have used Latimer Lee solicitors twice now for conveyancing and they were excellent both times. We had a few problems with the purchaser but our solicitor Emma quickly sorted it out for us. When I have used solicitors before they never answered call or returned them, but not with these conveyancing solicitors. They were recommended to me by a friend because I wanted to use a local Solicitor instead of one of these on-line ones. The estate agent recommended to me cpl but after reading the reviews on-line I thought I would look for a solicitor myself. I did some price checks just by calling a few solicitors and doing the instant quotes online and they were the cheapest Solicitors as well, no hidden costs at the end which I was worried about. They emailed me the paperwork and every time I had a query I gave them a ring and they were more than helpful. From start to finish the process took 3 to 4 weeks would have been quicker if the problem with the purchaser didn’t arise. I would like to say big thanks to Latimer Lee Solicitors you made what could have been a stressful move a lot easier. I would recommend them to anyone…
