There were considerable extra charges made from the start, charges that would be included by other solicitors. We found it difficult to get timely replies from phonecalls and felt that the young lady we eventually spoke to was very offhand and unhelpful. We stopped using them and have engaged another conveyancer.

We are sorry that you were dissatisfied with our service. We strive to provide every client with the most accurate quotation possible prior to instruction. As the property was unregistered, we were unable to include the additional fee in our original quotation as this was only identified once we received the relevant documents from the sellers solicitor. Upon receipt of this information, we notified you of the additional fee in writing. We apologise that you felt that our responses to telephone calls were not quick enough. We returned your request for a phone call within 24 hours and where possible we always aim to return a call the same day. After you advised us to close our file, we refunded the remaining monies on account and forwarded your search results to your new solicitors.

This is the 2nd time we have used the services of this company and both times we found them to be very professional and have very competitive rates for conveyancing. All in all a very good service was provided.

Had great dealings with Beaumont Legal, fairly quick to respond. No delays with anything and great that all documents can be filled online, saved me a lot of time. Portal website works well too. Would recommend them!!

From the moment I instructed them I have been very impressed with their standard of service, from the speed to which they reply to my emails to keeping me updated at every stage via the app. Would definitely recommend.

Accepted money from me while saying they could represent me, several weeks later revealed that although they had claimed to be on my lenders board they weren't, and hence could not have performed the work for me. This has cost me a lot of time and money, as they will not offer a refund and instead are insisting on me paying them more for the services they carried out under a false premise.

We're sorry that we were unable to act for your chosen lender and any inconvenience this has caused. So not to cause any delay to the transaction, searches are ordered shortly after instruction so that results can be checked and the first enquiries raised well in advance of a mortgage offer being received. We'll ensure we forward all search results on to your new solicitor.

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

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.

Terrible at replying to emails, very slow and added on extra cost. Would not recommend

We're sorry that you're disappointed with the service. As there is a chain, timescales are also dependent on the other solicitors involved. We've copied you in to an email chasing the solicitors for replies to enquiries and will make contact with your buyer's solicitor to check if they are now ready. We'll keep you up to date.
