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.

Excellent communication. Everything by email and web, or by phone where necessary, and I found that easier than being able to go and visit them. Very friendly. would definitely use again.

Slow service, web portal not updated regularly which is meant to show you progress so useless really. Contact person changed through process. Took longer than needed in this day and age for a simple sale with no chain. I have another property to sell but doubt I will use this company.

Company response: We always try our best to work towards our client's preferred date of completion. When we're acting on a sale, it can be a little harder to control how quickly the transaction progresses. The timescales are more dependent on the buyer's solicitor being ready and they cannot move forward to exchange until they have a deposit, search results, valid mortgage offer (if applicable), all replies to enquiries and can report fully to their client. On this case, we've communicated with our client directly regarding the outstanding document that the other side now need. Once received, we will be pressing for exchange and completion on the earliest possible date.

Company response: This matter is still on-going so we can imagine that the lower rating for service relates to timescales and the legal process in general. The sale was agreed towards the end of January and despite being fully instructed and contacting the seller's solicitor on several occasions, we only received the contract pack from the seller's solicitor mid March. From our side we have been proactive and ordered searches in advance of receiving these documents - so not to create any further delay for our client. We will chase up replies to enquiries and contact the client directly with a full update on what is now outstanding.

Beaumont Legal was good but there was no personal touch to the service they provided. I felt like one in a billion other customers they had. So if you are looking for a personal touch and a dedicated service with someone on hand with adequate knowledge to help you, then I will not suggest Beaumont Legal. I had to do a lot of chasing but I guess that is no difference from any other big conveyancing firm.

I really enjoyed working with Chloe. I admired her patience as at times things were very trying to say the least. She always responded as soon as asked. Her questions to us were understood and her guidance was reliable. She spoke in a language we understood.

They were quick to follow up with a phone call after my call and take additional details. I received a revised quote promptly for additional fees not detailed in the form.

We used Beaumont Legal for the sale and purchase of a property, both at the same time. The service provided by our main contact, Sam Rouse, was excellent and we would most certainly use them again. Sam was superbly professional throughout the whole process and his client relationship skills were excellent, with timely responses to any correspondence. You read some horror stories about house moving (this was our first move in 20 years!!) but the whole process was smooth and that was mainly down to the service from Beaumont Legal and particularly Sam Rouse.
