I had a fantastic time with Ison Harrison, and have used them not only to handle the conveyancing during the purchase of my first home but also to create my Will and will use them for anything else I might need in the future too.

Nigel Cowley dealt with my conveyancing from their Leeds and Guiseley office and was really comprehensive, understanding in explaining to us the ins and outs of the situation and articles/issues that I hadn't ever dealt with before. He was easy to talk to and everything was generally very organised, making the purchase and moving in period to our first home very effortless on reflection.

We also found them really reasonable price wise, considering all of the fees that mount up during the conveyancing process their own charges for the work they did were a really nice surprise, in that they weren't anything like what we had expected them to come to. We were thrilled that everything got done and we were moved in so efficiently.

Thanks for the great work guys!

Could not recommend this company less. Poor communication from the outset, more expensive than their competitors. Still chasing us 8 months later for “an unpaid portion of our bill” - we paid every astronomical bill in full. After over a month of ringing and being promised a call back and never recieving ONE call back I made a final call after recieving a call from their accounts department on a SATURDAY morning and finally heard back - turns out we didn’t actually owe a large portion of the remaining bill due to an error on their end!

Would never recommend this company or the lawyer used.

We have contacted Ison Harrison on several occasions since August 2018 to assist with an issue of breach of contract with our new home builder, as the solicitor dealt with the house purchase. We have on many occasions been promised a call-ball which usually hasn't happened. We did not return our completion paperwork as there was an outstanding issue which still needs resolving. Ison Harrison has on no occasion contacted us to find out why the paperwork wasn't returned. When I told them they didn't seem bothered once they had their money, they didn't answer but made it clear that their priority is given to house purchase completion deadlines.

Lazy is a very good way to describe the people in-trusted with my case also, utterly hopeless,
one of the biggest mistake i ever made in my life was to use the services of a catastrophically weak senior solicitor at this firm whos damage can now never be undone. Employing a duck to quack would be more beneficial. Stay well away.

They have left me in the dark for 32 weeks with a house purchase. They do not give a hoot about anyone and have left me in frustrated tears for 228 days. I could not despise a company more than I do this. They are lazy, impossible to contact, have made false promises on dozens of occasions and are literally damaging my mental and physical well-being.

If you have time on your hands and have no concerns about the pace at which your case is worked, then these are the perfect solicitors for you. Don't mind leaving a few messages and emails and waiting what might seem like an eternity for someone to get back to you, then you've come to the right place. Have money to burn and don't feel like spending it on something useful or worthwhile, these are the people to help you there. Want to pay a professional person to play a game of hide and seek, I couldn't recommend them more, you'll never find them when you're seeking and they are superb at finding you when your bill is due.

This firm is absolutely rubbish. Avoid like the plague. With all the negative reviews I'm surprised anyone would even go to them. You might think you're paying good money for them but at the same time you can pay good money for bad advice. They do a great sales job and get you sucked in to thinking it can't be done without them. Instead it turns out that it can be done easier and faster without them. Look elsewhere if you have an ounce of intelligence. Legal documents are simply produced from the website Practical Law. For a few changes here and there they charge the earth. If that's all you need then use online service that might just charge hundred instead of thousands to check your documents. Don't learn the hard way.

Absolutely appalling service from Ison Harrison. If you are an Estate Agent in the Leeds area do NOT recommend this company to anyone, neither estate agent or potential seller or buyer. 2 sales have fallen through due to queries not been answered. The staff seem polite at first but when the pressure is put on their true colours of this company are shown. The are unprofessional, the management is useless. They seem to be on annual leave often. They do not like being chased even though the other solicitors are waiting
for a reply. I would especially avoid Kathryn Gladwell and Kirstie Blinkhorne!

I wish we had seen these reviews before instructing these solicitors. We are constantly chasing them for paperwork and some sort of response when they are given anything from the purchaser. Told one thing at first only to be told another once they do have the paperwork. Their service is truly appalling. Chances are that our sale won't go through as this has been going in for at least 4 months and the purchaser is losing interest. Only time we seem to get calls from the firm is when they want payment. They even suggested halfway through that they wouldn't do any more work without payment. This should have taken a matter of weeks and now is taking months, and may not even actually go through now! Look at all their reviews if you are thinking about using these solicitors. Totally despicable.

Really poor service throughout as it felt like they weren't really on our side, along with a lot of last minute requests suggesting they were juggling too many cases.

Ison Harrison also made errors on our Completion Statements and paid the Stamp Duty after the deadline. They then lied about paying it, however, we caught them out after we contacted HMRC directly.

Have complained to the Legal Ombudsman as we don't feel they've taken our complaint seriously enough.

Would not recommend.

The solicitor was extremely difficult to get hold of. Emails went unanswered, calls unreturned, we decided to hold on the phone for long times to speak directly rather than leave a message as no messages were ever replied to.

Incorrect contracts were sent to the other vendors riddled with errors. When they were returned unsigned due to the errors, they sat on Ison Harrisons desks for two weeks until they acted.

My solicitor, estate agent, and opposite vendors were all told conflicting information, and sometimes blatant lies when Ison Harrison weren't aware that all the parties were communicating with each other. We were all left with zero confidence in what we were being told.

Absolutely appalling service from beginning to end.

Having called 3 times to ask for an affidavit to marry in Ireland, a solicitor called me back. She told me she ‘thought’ that the law had changed so this is something that is no longer done. This was so unhelpful and not true. At no point did she offer help to work out what was needed and it was a complete waste of time. I went elsewhere...and when I did I was given a lot of helpful advice and managed to get what I needed.

Please do your research and look into alternatives if moving house! I have recently dealt with them at the Leeds branch on 2 different moves. Most recently our own, where all parties in a chain pushed on for a specific moving date, and Ison Harrison ruined three different moving dates due to incompetence. Ours was set back by 2 months until exchange of contracts, it took them 3 weeks just to reply to an email from an initial enquiry! Then 2 additional months just to review the issues raised!!! Three weeks earlier my sister also eventually got moved. Same case but more extreme- all parties in chain ready to move, yet Ison Harrison Leeds kept on raising small issues one at a time, but also roughly 2 weeks apart. The initial date of February 2017 was the hopeful date for the chain, and they eventually moved July 2017 due to the incompetence of Ison Harrison!!

I have bought and sold many properties using different solicitors over many years. I can honestly say these are the most incompetent I have ever come across. So far they have posted out two sets of documents to two different addresses and got both addresses wrong! They weren't at all concerned that one set of documents still hadn't shown up after three weeks in the post. We are now on a tight deadline and I'm hoping to find somebody else to take over from them.

So far it's been a nightmare working with Ison Harrison. We're buying a house and of course I'm a bit anxious about this. Whenever I have a question or I need an update I have to wait for more than a week and remind about my case for at least 3 times before I actually have a response. And the response is not clear so sometimes I have to chase them for weeks. I don't know if this is just our solicitor or generally their policy, but the service is horrible!

Moving house is traumatic at the best of times. Using Ison Harrison at Chapel Allerton for conveyancing was the biggest mistake I have made in my life.

This firm is better than I thought - was recommended by a friend who received a substantial payout for an accident claim. As Ison is just up the road from me I thought I would see what they could do following a similar case to my friend (we both worked at the same place). Very happy with the service, prompt replies and eventual outcome.

Their employment team is excellent. Fairly priced and very responsive with comms. Helped me win a discrimination case and I haven't looked back! I would recommend Mr Lunat and his team.

Ison Harrison have been acting for my late partner's daughter as regards her cash Estate.

I have never come across a more disrespectful company, that just ignores the vast majority of my emails, when asking them specific legal questions.

The man I have dealt with, is supposed to be in charge of contentious probate, he is the only one making it contentious - by not responding.

It has now take over 3 years for this estate to be finalised.

I would not recommend them to anyone.

Barnaby Rosenthal did his very best and went that extra mile for my daughters case. Also Amy Law and Rebecca Woods were approachable , helpfull and understanding. I can honestly say that we were treated with kindness and care and respect. They took our case on when it was very close to the 3 year limit to make a claim and put a lot of hard work into the claim itself. We were kept informed regularly at every stage . Unfortunately there wasnt the evidence needed to carry on with the claim but that was through no fault at all from Barnaby . I can recommend him 100%. Thankyou so very much for doing the best you could . We will always remember that you really wanted to help and for all your time on the phone making everything clear to us .Thanks again from both myself and my daughter and our family .

I reviewed this company back in Dec. As an update: after 9 months I STILL do not have an exchange date (due to their delays). Their utter incompetence has cost me one sale on my property. It will now probably cost this sale. My buyer is a cash buyer in rented accommodation. My property is sitting empty, and still no exchange date in sight. Please learn from my mistake and stay well away from this awful firm for conveyancing.

I appointed Ison Harrison to deal with my divorce….. Almost three years ago. I am now pursuing an official complaint. I have had a terrible experience, which included lack of communication, delays in response, little advice/representation. I am now with a new firm who have made easy progress and have restored my faith.

Do not use this solicitor in any way shape or form. Solicitor sits on paperwork and even when drafts are incorrect and sent for approval, corrections are still missed. Charges for drafting paperwork that is out of date. Complaints procedure is laughable. Avoid them like the plague!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have used this company for conveyancing. Simple flat sale from one landlord to another has taken over 5 months. Conveyancer does not appear to know what needs to be done with essential paperwork, so just sits on it. Estate agents have even expressed their concerns about her. Lack of skills and knowledge could well cost the sale of my property as we still do not have a date for exchange let alone completion. I would not use again, and do not recommend.

I wouldn't even give this joke of a company 1 star! I have never ever been let down so much in my life!

We appointed these solicitors in good faith to get a quick sale on our house as that is what was needed, what a joke! 3 months down the line and we're still trying to sort it all out!

They've said they haven't received any paperwork even though it was tracked and signed for (which we have the signature from royal mail on their online tracking service), they never ring back, we are always chasing them, they do not send paperwork out unless you literally threaten to go to the ombudsman about it & they seem to not give a damn about us telling them we will be complaining.

Because of these incompetent monkeys the couple and their child buying our property are now having to pay good money to stay in a hotel because Danielle and Ashley from ison harrison cannot seem to fulfill requests for a sale within 6 weeks.

Undoubtedly the worst company in the country. Avoid at all costs.

Had the misfortune to use this firms criminal defence, their best solicitors so their claimed. There are few words that can adequately describe the joke of a service. It is no exaggeration that one would have been better off instructing a an empty chair. Do not be fooled by the firms descriptions of " dogged and determined and experienced " laughable more like. Imagine going to a restraint and being promised a fancy meal and you are merely given a bit of toast. Well, it was worse than that. I got a rat. I would not recommend this firms criminal defence.
