Could not complete transaction with them, and had to pay another solicitor for the same service all over again.

Company response: In this instance, the mortgage lender was being separately represented by another firm who asked us to provide further information regarding the transaction. Upon requesting this, our client instructed us to close our file.

Gabrielle was an excellent contact, she was easy to contact, helpful, kind, professional and prompt with her responses. This was my first home purchase and Gabrielle was very clear and thorough when explaining the processes to me, it made the whole experiment much less stressful.

Amy Pickering dealt with my sale, she was efficient and friendly and helped me through it due to my lack of computer skills, after a few uploads I soon got the hang of it. All in all. Had a good experience using beaumonts and will be using them again.

Did not reply to queries on the portal except at the very end. Very difficult to get through on the phone. I did not feel that my interests were being well looked after.

Company response: Thank you for the feedback. Despite the circumstances of the case, we managed to complete the sale in around 8 weeks. Having checked the file we have a record of returning all calls within a timely manner. We're always looking at ways to improve communication and have recently made several changes to the portal to ensure customers receive regular updates and quick responses to any queries raised.

You get what you pay for! Initial quote for the conveyancing fee appear to be cheap. Then I was told to pay extra £225+VAT for dealing with Assured Shorthold Tenancy (AST) but without explaining what they would do for me exactly. I paid assuming that they would check out the tenancy agreement for me but I was wrong. They ONLY told me at the end that they would ONLY look for whether the tenancy agreement has the characteristic of an AST. This would only take maximum 10 mins and even I can tell whether it has the characteristic of an AST or not. They charged me well over 2 hours rate for a 10 minute job. What a rid off!! If I knew that's what they were going to do for me for £225, I would have used another firm. Report on tile looks impressive on the number of pages but they are all standard wordings. Nothing personal at all. I guess that's what you get for cheap conveyancing. Don't expect too much from them!

Company response: Thank you for the feedback. We're sorry if you feel you weren't advised of the extra cost sooner. We always aim to provide an accurate breakdown of costs at the beginning of the process and do provide a list of potential additional fees within our terms of engagement. The extra work involves checking the terms of the AST, ensuring this complies with lender requirements, checking the deposit has been correctly registered with the appropriate deposit scheme and dealing with apportionments of rent on completion. We apologise if you feel this was not explained fully to you.

Actual costs were significantly higher than quoted. Worked out much more expensive. Service was slow and poor. I spent an inordinate amount of time sorting things out myself. I would not recommend this firm.

Company response: We always try to provide an accurate illustration of costs at the start of the transaction so that clients know what they're going to pay. We had provided a quote on the basis of a freehold property but once we received paperwork from the seller's solicitor, we discovered the property was leasehold and informed the client of the extra costs involved. This is due to the considerable amount of extra work involved in checking the terms of the lease and raising additional enquiries so that we can provide a full report. This case involved both a sale and purchase so timescales are of course dependent on all parties involved and we know that our client was disappointed that completion could not happen sooner. We did continuously chase the seller's solicitor for replies to enquiries and expressed that our client was desperate to complete as soon as possible but sadly they would not agree on an earlier date.

Even though i freely admit that i was an extremely demanding customer, Luke still dealt with my queries in a prompt and professional manner. Towards the end of the sale process our buyers suddenly developed an issue with their gifted deposit, which then resulted in Luke going the "extra mile" with the relevant parties and he ensured that everything was kept on target to meet the required completion date. As we all know, house purchases can very stressful but Luke demonstrated an excellent level of empathy throughout the process, which was gratefully appreciated. I would not hesitate at all to use/recommend BL in the future and would just hope that the service provided, would be half as good as that provided by Luke.

Sam was very helpful, and always responded to our queries within a day, usually by phone or email. The move was able to be completed within two months of the offer being accepted.

Very friendly company, kept me in the loop during the process. Unfortunately my move fell through so I had to pull out before completion, but I would highly recommend Beaumont legal to everyone, and would definitely use them again.

I think you get what you pay for in this instance. They clearly take on a large number of clients due to their low cost and this is then reflected in the time it take to complete the conveyancing process.
