most emails never replied to
everything took twice as long as it should have done
emails and letters were misspelled and grammatically poor
if you give a negative review you are harrassed and threatened with 'the partners'/review/investigation

Professional and wonderful people with amazing work ethic. We are extremely happy with the service Premier Solicitors have provided. Ruben Cowling has been very efficient and helpful in his approach which made the whole process easy to deal with.

I have used the "immigration services" of Premier Solicitors in order to get my wife leave to remain U.K.
The standard of service we have received was excellent from the head of immigration Mr.Iqbal to junior solicitors and even the very pleasant receptionists.
The fee charged was more than acceptable and the whole affair was conducted in a very professional manner.
I have no hesitation to recommend Premier Solicitors to everybody.

I chose premier solicitors because they advertised a local presence in Stevenage where I live, with what appeared like a low-cost divorce option. Little did I know what they only had an office in Bedford, which I only found out after I had agreed to move forward with them. (they have since rectified this on their website).
Don't be fooled by the £250 fixed fee advert either - my divorce was uncontested but we had finances to sort out for which you need a legal agreement called a consent order - and since I have never been divorced before I would have expected my Lawyer to make this clear at the outset. You may also need to pay for letters back and forth to your partners lawyer.
There were numerous mistakes in the documentation being prepared including the spelling of our names which just made a mockery of the situation.
The level of service from my lawyer at Premier Solicitors was not what I expected. At one point I contacted the company owners to see if my lawyer still worked there. Responses were slow. When my ex eventually signed the consent order in December and sent it to my lawyer they did nothing with it until the following March when I chased, they didn't even inform me that it had been signed.
Following consent order approval by the court, (which I found out first from my ex) I had to ask what the next step was - (there was never a clear plan given to me) - the next step is " go online download form D36 and fill in your own request for Decree Absolute" Absolutely shocking and to be honest the reason I'm writing this review... I called the office and the receptionist agreed with me... I paid for a service which has not been provided. I'm sitting here right now in the final stages of divorce not knowing what I need to do with the D36, and since more than a year has passed since Decree Nisi, I need to explain why it has taken so long... The agreement on finances is the reason - now I need to pay another £60 for a statement which states the reason.
Divorce is hard enough without blood sucking lawyers taking their cut, you need a lawyer who is responsive, understands your emotional state, fights your corner aggressively and makes everything clear at the outset - in my experience Premier Solicitors Bedford are not that company.

I hope this review helps them improve.

I would highly recommend this firm they dealt with my father’s estate excellently and guided us from start to finish at a very difficult time for me and my family. Sunil Chandi always made time for us and very considerate throughout. They were very reasonably priced and transparent about fee’s from start to finish.

I would give zero stars if I could. They are an awful to deal with screw things up left right and centre. Im 1000's in debt because of the excuses they keep making dragging things out, holding things up for no reason whatsoever. Never ever use them at all worst solicitors in Britain

Language barrier, lack of knowledge, their pride and ego made my mortgage switch to a new provider an ordeal. Premier Solicitors the worst solicitors I have ever met during my entire life. At one point I decided to give up or have a stroke! Took them 4 months to understand all documents involved in this switch. They asked me to email them the same documents over and over again, even documents that did not exist, but they believed exist.They did not answer to my phone calls or emails, I had to wait more than 5 days or may be more to be able to sort out their confusion. They did not act for me as a customer and do not know the difference between the word: FEE and word FUNDS, or the difference between MORTGAGE LENDER and UNDERWRITER. I had to become my own solicitor and intervene with the underwriter several times, so that I could see any progress with my mortgage. VERY VERY UNPROFESSIONAL.. AVOID THEM and listen to other people experiences.

I had a great experience with the court of protection team at premiers. Over the period of a couple of years I've had several different members of the team dealing with me and all were professional, they replied quickly to emails and resolved any issues straight away and to my satisfaction. Great service.

Would not recommend. Wasn't informed that as soon as our account began that our solicitor would go on annual leave and no one would be covering. When sending us back irreplaceable historical documents the packaging was substandard and not a penny postage was paid. Have asked for our complaint to be looked into but zero response from department concerned, never again poor show for a company making out to be professionals.

Awful solictors, just take your money and don't care. My case dragged on forever and almost lost it soley because on the incompetence of this firm. Never return phone calls or emails and when you do get hold of them on the phone they are trying to rush you off the phone from the begining!

Pay peanuts get incompetetent monkeys, don't make the same mistake as me and instruct these useless people.

DO NOT USE PREMIER!! Their cheap price reflects their incompetence and total lack of communication! Premier have just made my house sale and purchase a lot more stressful than it should have been, I have had to constantly chase, constantly prompt them to do things that should had been done at the start, emails not answered, when you do call to get an answer if you actually get hold of who you need to speak to answers are very vague! They are rubbish & im surprised at how they are still in business with all the mistakes they make!

Worst so called "professionals" we have ever had to deal with. Avoid at all costs. They'll lie to you, ignore you, not kept you updated, ask for the same things over and over and charge you what ever they like despite the original quote. If these people can call themselves solicitors then I'm going to give myself tye tital of surgeon. They were utterly useless. If I could give a minus rating I would!

We were disappointed with Premier Solicitors as when they took on our Probate administration - they made serious mistakes, so we had to do a corrective account with another firm of solicitors. I think they should only deal with very simple probate matters and shouldn't have taken on ours - as it was too complicated for them.

I would recommend Premier solicitors without hesitation. I walked into their offices literally off the street; the solicitors that I had originally engaged realised that they were acting for the other party just prior to my appointment! I needed legal advice quickly and a member of Premiers staff came to my assistance about 10 minutes later. My solicitor was very prompt, efficient and handled my case with sensitivity and efficiency. I cannot fault their services, and would highly recommend Premier.

We had an appointment with one solicitor, when we got there it was a different solicitor. He was very rude, he kept repeating himself, like he only knew one part of the employment law he was not letting us get a word in, so we came away with no answers, he was clock watching and took our money and said goodbye. He did give us a business card in case we wanted to waste more money I suppose.

I purchased a house at auction and found my usual solicitor no longer did conveyancing work. I then needed to find a solicitor who could complete the conveyancing within the required 28 days. So I tried Premier Solicitors Bedford and was allocated Emily Wallsworth as my Case Manager. Emily was incredibly efficient and helpful and the process proceeded and was completed to schedule and without issue. Many thanks. David

Avoid this outfit at all costs. Yes they are cheap but the service is shocking and you will regret dealing with them. You will spend all your time constantly chasing them and they don't even pass on all the info from the other side. Full of delaying tactics and excuses. Almost managed to completely destroy my purchase of a property.

I was purchasing the property for the first time and was recommended Premier Solicitors to take on the case.
I am very happy as even if we ran into few unexpected difficulties, my solicitor Ryan did his best to keep me up to date and informed.
It even wasn't as costy as i was prepared for ☺
Quick service and clear detail.

I would recommend Premier Solicitors to others and will definitely be using their service in the future again.

Superb Sevice from Premier

I have to say Kelly (Cassidy) was excellent in every way and, indeed, more or less kept my house purchase afloat due to the vendor's useless solicitors (won't mention them in case sueing is their only legal quality!) Kelly was highly responsive and spoke in refreshingly jargon free terms (and had a sense of humour to boot). Sensible fee as well - would highly recommend.

The WORST solicitors in the UK by a big stretch. They don't communicate with the chain, they would rather let a house sale fall through and take their cut than server their customers. Chandni Mistry is the worst employee I have ever had to deal with in my entire life, I cannot fathom how or why she was employed to be a solicitor. She quite clearly cannot handle this job.

I can only praise Kelly Cassidy of Premier Solicitors Bedford. She responded to my emails quickly. She explained everything in simple terms which gave me every confidence in the stresses of buying and selling. We had quite a complex case but everything was dealt with efficiently by Kelly. I will definitely recommend premier solicitors without hesitation, particularly Kelly herself. 10/10 for everything. Well done!

I used Premier Solicitors to deal with my late father's estate, probate application and house sale, and have been delighted with the whole process. Emma provided a personal and expert guide to dealing with probate and tidying up what could have been complicated financial affairs, and the conveyancing department managed a quick and straightforward house sale for us. On my experience I would not hesitate to recommend them.

We asked Premier Solicitors to handle our conveyancing. They took our initial payment for searches (which they have not done) but since we paid them they have failed to answer calls or emails, or deliver even the most basic service. They have now informed us they will not do our conveyancing, but they have ignored every request for our refund for the money paid for searches - despite them not doing a single search or any other activity. Even the quote they sent us was wrong, with the wrong figures and using the wrong calculations. They are utterly incompetent. Avoid.
