Avoid this firm. When dealing with a house purchase they have been unprofessional, rude and are like dealing with a bunch of amateurs. I have had to chase them everyday to do what I am paying them for. They never ring you back the record i think was 15 calls to them without a reply. Despite hand delivering documents they said that they hadn't received them. All in all a complete waste of time and have cost me lots of extra money due to their complete incompetence. I would rate this firm zero stars and am so angry with the way they treat their customers. A complete nightmare from start to finish.

Avoid! Engaged in June still nowhere, no one replied to my emails for nearly 2 months until I started kicking up fuss and complained and they finally opened a file matter for me, for nearly 2 months they didn't even know I actually engaged them. And now I'm being fobbed off because ' they got the file late' - yes, because the person who originally received it couldn't bother to reply to say it's not his or passed onto a colleague!!!

I was very happy with the sale of my home - they acted very fast , however they also made sure everything was in place ensuring sellers purchased insurance for work carried out - even though it delays my exchange they were working in my interest. And no you don’t get discount for good feedback

Thank you Tom

I cannot speak highly enough of Kerry Upton at Lawcomm Solicitors. Being a first time buyer with my partner we had no idea of the process and what's involved with buying a home. Kerry was so professional and explained the whole process to us step by step and what her responsibilities are as our chosen solicitor. She is so proactive to get tasks achieved straight away, responded to mt emails, calls and texts straight away or within a matter of a few hours. I never felt like I was chasing Kerry she always provided the update to us. The solicitor in front of us however was terrible making mine and Kerry's life a little frustrating by ignoring his own client, never responding to kerry and waiting weeks to action anything, but still Kerry kept on top of it and driving the process forward which only took 3 months. Without Kerry as our solicitor I can honestly say we would be waited 6months plus with the way the solicitor in front handled things. I would highly recommend Kerry, we were very happy with her support and work and would definitely use her again in a heart beat. One last final word: the minute you mention "solicitor" to anyone it's full of such negativity and "they purposely drag their heels", which the solicitor in front of us - Peter Dodd at Select Conveyancing was the complete some up of that comment. It's solicitors like him that give them a bad name, and individuals like Kerry that don't get enough credit and praising for the good job they do and service they provide.

If Anyone says to me solicitors are terrible I say you haven't picked the right person, you should've chose Kerry Upton!

Thanks again Kerry for everything.

I found that working with Rebecca Freeman made the process of purchasing a house for my sister and easy and stress free experience. Rebecca responded quickly to our emails and questions. She also helped me with another legal matter. I will continue to recommend Rebecca Freeman (Lawcomm) to friends and colleagues who need legal and conveyancing help. I found legal costs to be very reasonable.

We were lucky enough to have been assigned to Kerry Upton from Lawcomm solicitors whilst working towards our Exchange -
All I can say is that Kerry took a lot of stress away from us! We found her to be very knowledgeable, very friendly and very timely in her response to all our queries and issues.

A big thanks to to Kerry and we highly recommend Both Kerry and Lawcomm!!!

We used Lawcomm Solicitors due to their experience with new build properties and the help-to-buy process. Rebecca was fantastic at keeping us informed and flexible with our changing timelines. She was always available to answer my (many) questions and prompt with her requests and actions. If required, we would definitely use her services again in the future!

Kerry Leigh Upton has been absolutely fantastic throughout the whole process. I can't recommend her highly enough. The solicitors on the other side were frustratingly slow but Kerry managed to keep on top of them and drag them through the process. From reservation to completion it only took 7 weeks and I honestly believe that if it wasn't for Kerry then we would never have got it done in that time. The price was very reasonable and Kerry did her upmost to shop around for the indemnity policies that we needed to keep our costs as low as possible.

I had 2 solicitors working for me with one dealing with the sale and one with my new purchase. I found on the sale side that there was a lot of chasing from my side to keep things moving and found I was having to resubmit the same information on enquiries weeks after I had already submitted it on quite a few occasions. On the purchase side (new build property) everything was very smooth with the new build Conveyancing side highly recommended.

I received excellent service from start to finish with Lawcomm going over and above to help in ensuring the process run smoothly to its conclusion.

The set fee of £600.00 is excellent and worth every penny. Even with regular contact and many emails both ways, the costs remained the same but the high levels of customer service was fantastic.

I would wholeheartedly recommend Lawcomm to deal with any Conveyancing. If I was in a position to sell or buy a property in the future, they would 100% be my choice.

I recently made an offer on a property for sale with Purplebricks that would be good as a rental.

Knowing from a previous purchase that Purplebricks use Lawcomm as their panel solicitors, as part of that offer I stipulated that the sellers must not use Lawcomm.

Next day, guess what.. Purplebricks came back insisting that the sellers solicitors would be Lawcomm

I withdrew my offer and walked away, there is plenty of choice out there, but also there are plenty of fools who would stick it out through Lawcomm's incompetence.

It is interesting that after many 1 star reviews, suddenly there are now 5 star reviews. Is it right that people who leave a 5 star review get a discount?

Rebecca Freeman from Lawcomm Solicitors has been fantastic with the sale of our home and subsequent purchase of a new build property some months later. Rebecca always responded to our emails very quickly and answered all of our questions - we didn't have to send subsequent emails to chase a response etc. We are completing on the sale of our property this Friday and although Rebecca is on leave, she is going to take the time that day to ensure everything goes smoothly - service above and beyond. Thoroughly impressed. An asset to Lawcomm and would be one of our main reasons for returning to Lawcomm for any subsequent business.

Lawcomm were very efficient with the purchase of my new build property.
My experience with other property lawyers has not been great, but with Lawcomm the whole process was easy and stress free for the purchase.
Rebecca Freeman was friendly and helpful, but I hardly had to communicate with Lawcomm as everything was done with no requirement for chasing.
I plan to use Lawcomm in the future and would thoroughly recommend them to others.

Overall experience was reasonable but I would urge anyone anyone using the conveyancing service to be vigilant as a lot of my documents had minor silly errors.
The personal attention of Rebecca Freeman was commendable. I would not hesitate to recommend Rebecca Freeman who has a pleasant and professional manner, nothing was too much trouble for her and she went above and beyond to deliver excellent service.

Buying our first home we were recommended to use Lawcomm. I can honestly say we experienced a slick, efficient, friendly and great service! Communication has been excellent and we have been advised very well along the process. The cost came below what we expected. Highly recommended.

A wonderful firm to act on your behalf - I am delighted to recommend them. We have retained them for the sale of two properties and the purchase of one property in the past year. At all times we have found them to offer a personal and professional service - always there when you need them. Forever responsive and friendly. We will be delighted to retain them again when the opportunity arises.

It is the worse experience ever. We had an offer on our appartement on the 25th of September and we are still waiting to exchange contracts 5 month after because of the incompetence and lack of communication from them. The person who deals with my case doesn't know what he is doing, loses info and emails and doesn't follow up on anything. DO NOT USE THIS FIRM EVEN IF YOUR ESTATE AGENT (Purplebricks) SAYS SO!!!!!

On their website it says "As a firm, we are working very hard to make the conveyancing process as quick and as hassle free for our clients as possible."

Looking at the shocking reviews on the web and Google Reviews in particular, and my own dreadful experience, they need to keep working at it. They talk about "Super Fast Conveyancing", Super Slow would be more accurate.

I do not recommend this firm at all.

I would like to point out that this company did not represent myself, but were acting for my buyer.
However, I would like to highlight the added stress that could have been avoided by simply returning my solicitors repeated requests to phone him.This was over a period of a week and a half and in my opinion was completely unacceptable,in any walk of life.
Even my solicitor declared that he had never come across a situation where there had been such a lack of general courtesy. Needless to say the extra stress and time affected the chain,and nearly broke it.
I understand that moving is stressful, that we all think that our solicitor is ownly working on our individual case,and has no other work to do,I also understand that there will be delays,further enquiries, and frustrating times throughout, but Lawcomms,please please,PLEASE, at least get your staff to communicate
when required,and if not straight away, perhaps sometime later that week..!!!!!!!!

We were naïve and led to believe by the estate agent that using this firm would secure our offer to the vendor. Do not be fooled into this. You should ba able to make a choice who you choose to represent you and you definately wouldn't want to choose Lawcomm. We found them to be unaware of what was going on majority of the time, we had to tell them what to do next every step of the way.

I can't really recommend this outfit for conveyancing. I was a first time buyer this year and just went for the mortgage broker's recommendation. Do not do this! - I have learned my lesson. I have no other firms to compare to but you can always tell when you're getting poor service overall.

From their recent Google Reviews it appears I am not alone.

This firm is a cheaper outfit that takes on too many cases from what I can see. Inevitably some things take a while (management packs from leaseholders/building managers etc) & local/water reports etc but a lot of chasing was required and it wasn't with a lot of pressure that I ever saw any results. For a simple transaction with no chains on either side this really took too long. (over 3 months from the time I found my property)
