Very friendly and efficient service, Gary was always contactable and reassured me throughout the whole process. We had quite a lot of twoing and throwing with estate agents, but I was confident our solicitor was keeping on top of things on our behalf. Would happily recommend to others as we had no problems with them at all. Very competitively priced and good value for money.

They are excellent. They communicated to me very well and on a regular basis. I found their online tracker brilliant, it not only let me know how things were progressing, but detailed what I could expect through all stages to completion, with handy notes posted on active stages. For me personally this was extreemly good and beyond my expectations, especially considering their price was £500 cheaper than another firm.

Considering all the information I'd gathered from friends and family on what time scales, costs and agro to expect, I've had a uniquely smooth and trouble free house purchase that, if anything, moved faster through processing than I could match with packing my house. I'm very, very pleased and happy with Beaumont Legal and would recommend them for a house purchase.

Pretty happy overall, everything seemed to be done on time with good communication. Not sure on the point of the online case tracker as it doesn't get updated as soon as something is done and you get an email with the details anyway. I suppose the ultimate test is "would I use them again?" Yes, yes I would.

Overall, we were satisified with the service offer by Beaumont Legal, however, the first solicitor assigned to our case was useless and had she remained at the firm, I'm sure my rating would have been 'unacceptable'. She consistently failed to meet the company's service standards, on some occasions failing to respond for over 2 weeks. She rarely answered the phone and had no voicemail to leaves messages. On one occasion she was unnecessarily rude when I contacted her for a response to a query raised over a week earlier. I was considering making a complaint, but before I had the chance I discovered 'she had left the business' and I was assigned to a new fee earner. From this point, everything changed. Sandra was prompt responding to email and always answered the phone, and despite having to clear up a lot of mess left by her predecessor really got things moving (for example failing to inform our mortgage lender of the correct purchase details which meant our mortgage offer had to be reissued at the 11th hour)

I really liked the online tracking tool, but unfortuneatly the first solictor rarely updated anything, so dates would eventually be moved back several weeks for no apparent reason. Used correctly, this would have been a really useful tool.

Company response: Hi Andy, we’re sorry your case didn’t start as you or we would have liked but are glad that it was turned around.
Thanks for the feedback.

Reasonably good but needed chasing - not a major problem for me but it might put some people off.

Company response: Thanks for the rating and the feedback; we’ll look into your case to see how we could build on our service.

We were a bit nervous about choosing a firm through a review / reference point like reallymoving - but our experience of Beaumont Legal was first class.

We were twitchy clients - having stepped into an already stressful chain.
Megan has provided exceptionally clear and accurate information and advice. She
has been confident in saying what could and could not happen - and has been
patient when any bad news about timescales etc (caused by others and not by Beaumont) hit - without promising things that could not be delivered.

We really felt throughout that Megan was working for us and had our best
interests in view. Added to her professionalism, she has been good humoured and
enchanting to work with. An excellent service.

People who handled my case are very professional. The email responses are prompt all the time. I received reply normally within 24 hours. The documents attached through email attachments saved lots of time. The team tried using different numbers to inform me and my husband the good news of the completion of the purchase when I am not free to take the call. There is definitely no hidden charges.

I have been really impressed with the service that I received. From making my first enquiry to exchange of contracts took 26 days. As the property was a repossessed property, this was key. Sandra was terrific. On each occasions I emailed I had a response within the hour and was able to contact her on the phone easily.
The website is updated regularly so that you can track the case each day. It removed a lot of the frustration of trying to find out information.

It's the first time I've used a solicitor via an internet site rather than on the high street and I'd definitely recommend Beaumont Legal to others.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Beaumont Legal for all their help and hard work in getting us to this stage. I had a fairly hassle-free experience and they will be a highly recommended solicitor to all in any future endeavours taken by myself or friends and family.

Beaumont Legal carried out a truly professional service. Our solicitor was excellent in efficient communications with all parties, leading to a hassle free and timely transaction. Selling/ purchasing a house can be very stressful if your legal team are not helpful, efficient and quick to wrap the deal up. Hope my comments help you make the right decision in choosing your legal firm. Many Thanks Beaumont Legal!

Exceeded our expectations.... At 6.30pm we raised a question about needing an indemnity policy for purchasers by email with Sarah Weatherall our conveyancer and she answered it by email from her iPhone that evening. Fantastic service beyond what I expected. A really smooth sale and purchase.
