I wish to note the commendable work undertaken by the litigation team over the last 11 months. Mr Patel and Mr Ahmed have both done a fantastic job. No matter how tough the job or the tight time line they were more than happy to assist. Thank you for all the tax advice too. If you are looking for a specialist property litigation team look no further!! Too firm.

As a first time buyer I was initially very nervous about the conveyancing process. But Stirling Ackroyd Legal provided me with what I needed – peace of mind and made the entire experience very pleasant. The conveyancing department was very efficient, accommodating and regularly communicated with me via email/telephone. I was kept informed throughout the entire process.
I will definitely be instructing them again will all my legal matters.

Exceptional service.

I recently used Stirling Ackroyd Legal for a litigation matter and was extremely pleased with the service. The staff were attentive, advised me on the pertinent issues and gave clear guidance on what the most suitable options were to resolve my matter.

It was a successful outcome for me so I would definitely instruct Stirling Ackroyd Legal again and not hesitate to recommend them to all my friends and family.

A phenomenal service overall and have been dealing with Emon Ahmed whom I initially met in Dubai.

We have completed several seamless Commercial deals regarding corporate contracts. We really recommend using Emon and his team, who provide a professional and proficient service.

Stirling Ackroyd are a great company to work with and we have found their communications channels to be easy. Strongly recommended!

Unbelievably Bad.
I was referred to Stirling Ackroyd via Homeward Legal.
For 6 weeks they provided me with basically no information as to what was going on with the property purchase...at most I could get a 1 line email response per week with no information.

7 weeks in they emailed me telling me that their compliance department was refusing service to me...no other reason or information given.

They even had to nerve to keep the £100 deposit I'd paid them (on top the deposit paid to Homeward legal) stating they had spent it on "Due Diligence Checks"

I can't believe such a poor service could exist.

Do not believe the 5 star reviews telling how great their experience was with Stirling Ackroyd legs. company is a straightforward Scam

- Solicitor does not answer calls or e-mails by the vendor and his solicitor. It has been more than 2 weeks since I instructed Stirling Ackroyd to initiate the purchase. My solicitor has so far answered one out of 5 e-mails. 9 our of t time I called Stirling Ackroyd I was told by the unfriendly reception lady that my solicitor was in a meeting.
- Even though I have told Stirling Ackroyd that it is in the interest of both parties to complete asap, my solicitor is unnecessary threatening the closing of the deal by not answering e-mails of the vendor, thereby embarrassing myself. When I complained, I was told by the Receptionists on the phone that the poor service provided by my solicitor is normal at Stirling Ackroyd and that I would have to pay extra for a faster service. Nitwithstanding that they already charged me an extra 150 pound for filling out stamp duty form which was not listed in the fixed fee quote by the Conveyancing network, the reception lady was actually cheeky enough to extort me.

Summary: Absolutely unacceptable incompetent and poor service. I will copy and paste this review all over the web to counteract all these fake profiles giving this company 5 star reviews. Home buyers need to be aware of Stirling Ackroyd solicitor as they are absolutely incompetent. I would give them a 0 if I can. They are threatening my Deal as the vendor now believes that I am unable to complete in time and considers other possible buyers . If you are keen on actually closing a deal, making sure that you do not work with them.

I have to say that throughout this process you have been a fantastic help to us. The communication that we have received from Stirling Ackroyd Legal and particularly Ayushie Patel has been excellent. You have understood our situation, issued all documentation rapidly and efficiently there have been no misunderstandings or mistakes, we have felt that you have been representing us to the other parties fantastically.

We have felt reassured and informed throughout the whole of this process and cannot express our thanks enough for your help. As first time buyers we were concerned with horror stories we’d heard of using solicitors and I’m happy to say that we’ve had a wonderful experience. If you lived closer we’d invite you to the housewarming!

Absolutely shocking conveyancing service.

My solicitor did not return my calls and took, on average, a 10 days to reply to my emails. The solicitor then began exchange negotiations without consulting me regarding dates. It has been 7 months since I moved into my new property and I am still awaiting on Stirling Ackroyd completing the necessary work to register me as the proprietor. I have had no response to emails since August. Finally, the invoicing was incorrect and I am still awaiting a refund.

Only go with these guys if you have time to waste, don’t mind being overcharged and want to be told all legalities are fine, whether this is true or not.

- Service was unacceptable. We requested an additional legal document but gave up when (after much waiting and chasing) we received back our own words but changed to be incorrect! We listed corrections and then were told to do them ourselves, leaving us wondering what they were adding to it. (Other lawyers consistently shared their shock that the legal clauses had come from a lawyer and not our own guesswork.)

- 'Advice' was vague or actively misleading. Rather than highlight or even confirm that we have legal obligations on some repairs and maintenance, we were instead told "it will never happen".

- We were 'held to ransom' on the day of Completion. The large bill arrived only the evening before and we were told to pay it immediately or entirely lose the house. Not only did we expect a reasonable time period to pay over £10,000, but it also over-charged us, above the fixed quote. There was no option but to pay more than we owed.

- We were promised that any payment incorrections would be refunded, but our requests and evidence on this were consistently ignored. We submitted a formal complaint and that timed out against their own written commitment of 28 days. When we finally had a conversation it felt like trying to win an argument in a courtroom rather than looking at the simple facts and figures. It was 3.5 months after Completion that we finally got the refund for forced overpayment on the day of Completion.

Suffice to say that all the above was distressing when dealing with all the other complications that happen during a house purchase. Be warned.

Based on my experience, I do NOT recommend Stirling Ackroyd Legal. We were not satisfied by the poor communication, significant delay to answer enquiries and sometimes absence of answer. In my view, the solicitor who handled my case was incompetent and did not meet the standards expected from a law firm. Our treatment was appalling and the mistakes they made were shocking.

I used Stirling Ackroyd Legal to purchase a property in late 2016, and they’re still to this day reminding me why I’d never use them again, and would suggest others may not wish to use them also.

Some of the issues faced during the purchase;

1) Emails didn’t include attachments that were mentioned in the body of the text.
2) The report sent did not make coherent sense and referred to clauses that were not within the report.
3) The report sent overstated the number of years left of the lease. I only picked up on this because I had explicitly researched the remaining years in advance
4) They didn’t return the Deed of Covenant to the freeholder. I found this out 6 months later when I contacted the freeholder, and they couldn’t do anything until the Deed had been returned. (Mysteriously, my very simple name had been spelt wrong. To be fair Stirling Ackroyd told me this was the Council's mistake. It may have been. Or it may have not been)
5) They failed to respond to emails from the Seller’s solicitors for 3 months, and then contacted me to say I had an urgent action. In this email they told me the buyer’s solicitors were holding a retention and needed confirmation it was ok to release it. I queried this, and after a couple of attempts at trying to explain they simply forwarded me the Seller’s solicitor’s email. This was just one of many inaccurate and sloppy mistakes.

I’m assuming now I’m the legal owner of the property, but given I can't report back anything they did well or got correct first time I wouldn’t be surprised if I’m not.
