Elizabeth Oldham was misleading from the beginning. Led us to believe that the hearing was a formality. In fact as soon as she had our cooperation and money revealed to us that a care order would be made against our children. She gave the impression through out that she was biased in favour of the local authority and in fact it was the local authority she was working for. She tried every trick in the book to mislead us and rip us off for as much money as she could. When I spoke to her assistant I was told to mind my own business when I wanted to know about the case progression almost immediately after I had paid them £2000.00 to get on with job. What this woman

Our first house purchase went through Machins after they were recommended to us by our agents, Indigo. The degree of negative surprises me. Our account was handled by Eugene Pritchard and they did a fine job. As buyers, the hold up was more on us securing our mortgage. I've generally had positive experiences with Machins and always appreciated their transparency on work and potential costing.

If a could give this firm a minus rating i would what an appalling service. Would never use this company of my own free choice but third party solicitors. What should have taken 6 weeks for a simple sale has now taken just short of 7 months.

They ignore phone calls and emails for days and simple queries take weeks to process.

I would never recommend this company of solicitors to do any conveyancing matter they just don`t care.

Machins are acting on behalf of the purchaser of my property. DO NOT USE THEM!!!!
They are slow, unprofessional and don't care.

Things get left for weeks, for no apparent reason.

It's law firms like this that give the industry a bad name. They clearly take on amounts of work they can't cope with and peoples lives are messed about. But why should they care, and they don't!
At least if people were kept informed then you would feel better.
DONT GO NEAR if you want something done swiftly and professionally.

Machins of Luton were involved in a 3rd party capacity dealing with a simple, straightforward Lease query.
Due to Machins, I have lost over £10,000 due to them taking over 1 year to deal with a query. This query has still not been resolved by them. I have never heard of Machins previously, and would urge everyone to find an alternative firm. As well as showing incompetence, they are rude, they have no urgency and most certainly do not care of the financial impact their delays have on others. I strongly recommend you stay away from Machins. I am only giving you my personal experience and opinion.

Very unprofessional, did not return calls for weeks, in fact on one occasion while negotiating with another party they did not return the call for over 3 months, i had to contact the other party myself, the party had not heard a thing.
When the deal was finished they were very quick to ask for payment and then make a threat of court action if i did not pay within 14 days as i was questioning them on what they actually did for the money.
The price they charged was fair if they had done the job right.
But frankly i would put them in charge of doing my shoe laces up.

I would like to take this opportunity of thanking Mrs Oldham and her secretary for their exceptional attention to detail in this obviously very personal and difficult matter for me.
The calm, cool and collected way in which they both dealt with my matter was invaluable to me and is greatly appreciated.
