Considering the a soliitor I can’t believe how unhelpful they were. No communication and when they did it was a one liner. They were impossible to contact over the phone and email was hit and miss. Made us miss our move in deadline by a month because of their incompetence. Didn’t seem to know what they were doing at any stage of the process.
I will never use these again and wouldn’t recommend them to anyone. You would be better of finding the cheapest solicitor online and hope for the best.

They are so slow! No one person dedicated to contact. No one gets back to you. 9 weeks later still no correspodence from them. Would never recommend anyone to use!
We're sorry to hear that you are unhappy with the service provided as almost all feedback we receive is extremely positive.
From what you have told us, it seems like you required notice in writing of each stage of your case’s progression. However, this is not typical in conveyancing as most people do not want lots of letters. Also, this was not mentioned to us as something you required, and had you done so naturally we would have been happy to oblige.
Your responsible solicitor was Philip Bellamy, and we thought this had been made clear to you. However we work as a team, and other members of staff may have assisted you on occasion, although that does not normally cause confusion as to who your main point of contact is.
Finally, in terms of the delays, we only received your mortgage offer 8 weeks after we were instructed. You were also away on holiday for two of the 9 weeks you mention. Further, there is absolutely no interest in us delaying things as we do not earn anything until a case completes.
As you know, we have discussed this matter with you, and apologise again for any stress or confusion you may have suffered. Please be assured that we have taken your comments fully on board, even though this is far from typical of the feedback we usually receive. Finally, we would suggest that in future you are clear on your communication requirements with any conveyancers you choose to engage, as this will help avoid any unsatisfied expectations.

Very efficient and on the ball from start to finish.
Helpful and supportive service on 16 Dec 2016
It's great to find a service where you have named people looking after you. Calls and emails were promptly dealt with and we felt well cared for at every step of the way. We also liked the fixed fee idea. Too many solicitors in London charge by house price yet the work of selling and buying houses is roughly the same all over the UK so why should London solicitors make so much more? Great service and I'm happy to recommend Richard Webster & Co.
