They printed the contract incorrect with only one name instead of two. And also there were pen writing on the final contract as they had miss spelt our names. And then when posted again they say they never received the documents so finally had to send the documents a third time whoch they then received.

Company response: Thank you for the feedback. The contract documents are always prepared by the seller's solicitor but we're sorry that in your case they were incorrect and this caused confusion. We're glad we were able to get this resolved and get you moved in around 7 weeks after we received draft contracts.

Very very difficult to contact. when you do phone you get put on hold and there is a 99.9% chance that you will be cut off and have to start again. My estate agents were never able to get a reply. I had to fill in the same forms that I originally filled in twice. the purchase price was wrong and had to be amended.

Company response: Thanks for your feedback - we’re sorry if you had problems getting in touch. We’ve now introduced a new phone system to make sure all callers can get through quickly.

Not good they can not be reached most times, and you have to ask how things are progressing.

Company response: Thanks for getting in touch with us directly about this – we’ll continue to speak to you about it directly

As first time buyers we struggled to understand some of the technical terms and documents being requested, it would have been nice for them to communicate with us with this in mind.

Terrible service. Slow progress and poor communication nearly lost our sale and forced us to complete on sale prior to purchase costing us over £1000 in additional moving costs. Nearly impossible to speak to the person handling our case. Online account wasn't kept up to date. Tried to over charge by extra £300 on the morning of completion.

Started very well but lots of hiccups with electronic progress reports and did not always respond to emails in a timely fashion.

Company response: Thanks for the feedback; we’ve made improvements to our systems recently and we’re sorry if this affected your case. Thanks for giving us top marks for value for money – it’s very much appreciated.

As a first time buyer I think things went pretty smoothly. Beaumont have a user portal where you can track where the buying process is up to however in my case it never updated. Having said that, the communication with our legal assistant was fluid via email, I had responses from her within 24 hours in most cases. Overall I can definitely recommend Beaumont because as a first time buyer it can be daunting and they made the process feel smooth.

The company need to improve on communication, it's really frustrating that they are too relaxed a d always take their time so you really need to Chase always before you get things moving

Company response: Thank you for your review – we’re sorry to hear you were frustrated and will look into your case to see what we can do better in the future.

Easy communication. Though I felt they were a bit slow in receiving post and scanning it into their system. (Took about 3 days after receiving it signed for)

Superb service, I've since used Hannah at Beaumont to sell another property. I've also passed on Reallymoving's details and recommended Hannah to a friend.
