Communication was good; establishing a rapport with the primary contact probably helped. I was glad that all forms could be signed and posted electronically. Chasing up local searches myself really speeded things up - we completed in 7 weeks which bearing in mind the usual speed of service from the local authority and the restrictions placed by Covid was very good - but it was crucial as I had a tenant lined up who wanted to move in before Xmas.

Terrible. Do not use. The initial paperwork is supposed to arrive within 48 hours but took a week and so it continued. Lack of communication from them

Excellent service given by Zoe Lau. Kept us informed at every step. Always promptly returned calls & emails. I would have no hesitation in recommending this company, but especially Zoe Lau.

Communication is very poor and requires a lot of chasing up.

Be careful when using this company. They quoted a fee for a leasehold property purchase and then part way through the process they tried to double the quote. I withdrew and I as charged a withdrawal fee - awful!

Thank you for taking the time to write your review, and we are sorry for any confusion around the fees. Our services work on a fixed fee basis so long as all information is disclosed to us upfront. The quotes provided are based upon the information that our customers give to us. At the beginning of every transaction, all customers are provided with a comprehensive list of fees which would be payable in the event of additional legal services being required. Specific attention is drawn to this list in our initial letter to you and this letter invites all customers to bring to our attention at that stage any additional services that may be necessary. We do not charge any withdrawal fee. We operate on a No Move No Fee basis, meaning that only third party costs would be payable in the event of withdrawal, and then only if a customer chooses not to take out the available Home Buyer's protection cover which indemnifies against third party costs in the event of a 'no-fault' withdrawal from the transaction.
