thanks! it was absolutely useless on 15 Jan 2021
I would implore you to please never recommend this company to anyone else. They have caused nothing but delays and unbelievable frustration. I have never once been contacted by phone or email on the timescale promised to me by my solicitor - every time I am told that they can't take my call but will call me back, every time I send an email asking for updates on progress, every time they assure me they'll finally be sending reports I was promised weeks ago on a particular date - every single time they fail to contact me as promised. The communication is terrible, and is causing delay after delay that I am extremely worried will inevitably lead to my chain collapsing. I have made an official complaint and will be contacting the legal ombudsman as soon as that process is complete. The Google reviews for this company are almost universally negative, and I don't understand how they can have an almost 4 star rating on reallymoving - needless to say, this eliminates any confidence I might have had in recommendations and quotes provided by reallymoving. I would be very interested to hear how reallymoving justify having this company on their site given the shocking level of service they provide.

It has been a while since using PM Law, but having just heard about a colleague's house sale almost falling thorough due to this company's lacklustre attitude, I thought it was about time to write my review.
We were first-time buyers and, with no experience in this area, we put our faith into our conveyancing lawyer. You just trust them to do things right because that's their job. But what ought to have been a simple process (we didn't have a property to sell so was ready to move in and the seller's property was vacant) then became an arduous, lengthy and tedious process across four months.
The estate agent rolled her eyes when she found out who was representing us and advised us to "keep chasing" PM Law, but we weren't prepared for the amount of effort we'd have to put in to actually just speak to somebody or get an answer to our emails.
One of the most pressing matters was to make the completion date. We had negotiated a reduction in the property price from the seller on the condition we made the completion date. PM Law told us that it was achievable. At this stage, we asked if there was anything else we needed to do to complete the sale, other than sign and return the contract with the revised price and were told that would be all.
Of course, just three days before completion, it emerged that we had not been sent a TR1 Land Registry form to sign. At no point was it mentioned we wouldn't be able to achieve our completion date. The signed TR1 form was personally delivered to PM Law the very next day, two days before completion. This was the first time we were informed that the completion date would not be possible and processes would take a further five working days.
The following day, one day before completion, the Estate Agent called to say that the seller was putting the price back up as we were not able to complete on time. In a further call with PM Law it was confirmed it would take another 5 working days for the COT to be authorised.
At this point it emerged that PM Law sent a letter to the seller's solicitors, on what ought to have been the completion date, referring to points raised on the Law Society Property Information Form which had been in our possession for two months without them acting upon it.
So with the completion date missed, it ended up taking a further four weeks to get anything sorted, during which the seller told us that he was fed up with how long it was taking and would put the house back on the market. Therefore, we took it upon ourselves to get things moving. We were in regular contact with the Estate Agent and even the seller's solicitor (because the Estate Agent was telling us that the seller's solicitor was getting nothing from PM Law). It almost felt like we were doing the work we were paying PM Law to carry out!
All of the above points were raised with PM Law. None of which were answered.
After four long months and enough stress to last a lifetime, the process was complete and we have not since recommended PM Law to anyone. Having being through all of that, my advice would be to spend a little more and don't go with them because you might save a few quid - that's what we did. But this is one of those cases where you really do get what you pay for. Pay a bit extra and use someone who cares that you're making the biggest purchase of your life and knows how to handle it.
We’re sorry to hear of your experience – this does not reflect the high standard of service that the great majority of our clients receive. We appreciate that it was a stressful time for you – please accept our apologies if we contributed to this.
