Service generally very good. Had to chase to get answers to some questions I had raised.

We found the process adequate, dealing with Hillfort Law mostly over email and telephone due to our bust schedules. We found Ritah helpful in answering our queries and ensuring the process run smoothly and would recommend her services.

We chose this company based on some good reviews and their focus on speed. This was far from our experience and would advise other customers to look elsewhere. Both admin staff and our solicitor were disinterested, ignored calls and emails. We were not kept in the loop at all and had to chase everything to move the sale along. Neither party were in a chain and it took well over six months. The only way the purchase finally went through was when my partner complained about the service to the director. A very stressful process and we would definitely use a different company next time.
We are sorry that you have not had a good experience with us. We appreciate your feedback.

Excellent service provided from start to completion. All of my many questions answered in a timely manner. They made the whole process very easy to understand and were very proactive. We would highly recommend Hillfort Law Firm and will use again.

Very disappointing. No updates as they advertise. Had to continuously chase them. My solicitor didn’t even get in contact when case allocated to them. Sat on things and didn’t put this in motion straight away. Haven’t experienced as helpful or friendly!

Very happy with service provided. Phone answering and manner by the general staff could be friendlier / nicer but other than that faultless throughout

As a first time buyer I was initially worried about using a non local solicitor. However from the first phone call onwards, my mind was at rest.
Even my wife was amazed when she called as the phone is picked up latest by the second ring. Daisy was absolutely, incredibly fabulous in speed answering phones, dealing with all the initial bits of paperwork and in kindly putting in a request for the searches to be started so there wouldn’t be delays.
I was in a chain of many, with the chain then wishing for me to purchase the house 2-3 weeks ahead of schedule. Now enters Tekcan Tek who absolutely blitzed through all the mountains of paperwork, sent me amazing reports and identified some very significant queries. All in all I am now a proud house owner (or proud someone with a big loan) but all this would not have happened if not for these amazing folks. Daisy & Tekcan, I am very, truly grateful for all your kind help.

Dreadful, dreadful service from a shockingly amateur outfit. Got my mortgage arranged through TSB who said they would not deal with this company as not TSB-approved. So they initially used another company as a go-between (not revealed to me until my broker told me). Then, when his got too difficult for Hillfort, they dropped me and passed me to the new firm without telling me. First I knew was when new firm wrote to me asking why I hadn't sent them any details (err because you're not my conveyancer!). Failed to inform them I had already paid Hillfort for Searches and then took forever to pass my file to new company - who were £400 more expensive so I should at least have some input(!). Before they dropped me, tried to arrange Forces Help to Buy through them and they didn't have a clue, but other than charging an additional £175, did NOTHING in terms of providing MOD the required information but bluffed to me that no work was yet required which was not true as confirmed by subsequent company. Seem to have been drowned by responses from reallymoving due to low price 'on paper' but simply unable to deal with the volume or any complexity whatsoever. House buying is stressful enough without having to fight your conveyancer (they are NOT solicitors and don't be fooled into their telling you that they are 'specialist' conveyancers) so I would urge you to find someone capable of dealing with your house purchase with any modicum of professionalism. Staggered.

The didn't respond to emails very well but I had direct contact with my conveyancer by phone which is an improvement on other conveyancers I have used in the past.
Thank you for your feedback. Whilst we do endeavour to reply instantly to all emails, depending on the nature of the email this is not always possible. Of the 66 emails received throughout this particular transaction, it would appear that we responded in the majority of cases on the very same day as the email was received.
