Don't use them. They did not respond to emails or requests in a timely fashion and were very inefficient. I constantly had to chase matters up and the time scale for completion was unacceptable. Only when I threatened to report them to the law society did they do something. It was a very poor service from start to finish. Any complaint was always met with excuses. A disgrace to the profession.

The chronology of the file clearly reflects timely responses and the remortgage actioned in accordance within the parameters applicable to this type of transaction where we are relying on third parties such as local authorities to provide property certificates L McFadden

I do feel that clients should only have to pay the exact fee for searches. If firm use a company to obtain these searches then the additional cost should be borne by company not client, at end of day clients are paying a fee for their service and should not have to pay 3rd party fees

The process for me this time round was too slow.

I found McFadden Perry to be very professional, efficient and friendly to deal with in the sale of my house. It worked very well being able to scan and email documents (along with posting). Would definitely recommend. Very happy with the service.

Everything was handled quickly and efficiently. The company's communication with me was great especially by e-mail. In the main any e-mail enquiries I made about my conveyance were answered within 30 mins. I would recommend this company without hesitation.

Uncommunicative, unhelpful, inefficient and generally uninterested once we signed up. Before that they appeared helpful and pleasant so what a nasty surprise we got. Not answering emails, when pressed answering in one or if lucky up to three words. On the telephone we appeared to be a nuisance. If we had a question relating to the conveyancing we were told to ask the estate agent or the vendor! How could these people know the answers as to how McFadden Perry were progressing with our purchase? In total they made our buying process a nightmare for us. We exchanged contracts on the 3rd of July and got our deeds today 11 February, 7 months of pressing for closure! I can now finally rate them as I need have no further dealings with them. I rate them as diabolical!

I acted for two ladies in this transaction, who were relocating from France to Dromore (with their pet). One of which has chosen to make comments which could not be further from the truth. Myself and my staff were conscious of the complications arising from arranging completion in Northern Ireland, to fit in with completion in another jurisdiction and especially when a pet is involved. I communicated with both these ladies many times, and at no time did they express dissatisfaction with my services. Quite the contrary - With regard to registration, it is not unusual for this to take some months due to a backlog and staff shortage. In the NI Land Registry I have asked both ladies to contact me, or allow me to phone them to ascertain why Ms Brown has felt the need to express herself as she has, and Ms Brown has refused the invitation.

You get what you pay for with this firm - That is, a cheap price and a cheap service. We were first time buyers and the vendor was selling and moving into rented accommodation so not exactly a chain to hold up the process. Probably the least complex purchase you could hope for. From sale agreed to completion the entire process took 12weeks! No doubt the firm will blame the vendors solicitors but I spent weeks harassing them to push the other solicitor and all I got was frustration and brush offs. Communication was very poor and felt powerless to be able to do anything. I got my final completion date only days before we got the keys so again more frustration when trying to organise a house move around this. The comments I read on the website made the firm sound like a reputable company and have provided great value for service for previous customers but knowing what I know now I would NOT have used them and would gladly pay the extra £400 quoted by other solicitors.

My practice should not be judged on the basis of this review. The client advises that he was a first time buyer and as such inexperienced as to conveyancing procedure. I appreciate how frustrating it can be for clients wanting to be informed, and myself and my staff communicated regularly with this client, but we have no control over the time frame for responses from the other parties solicitor. Who for various reasons were not able to respond as quickly as the client would have wished. At no time during the transaction did he make a complaint or give any indication that he felt that myself or my staff were not doing our jobs properly. He in fact confirmed to me on more than one occasion that he understood that I had to wait for responses. As such I find his complaint inexplicable and unjustified. Regards, Linda
