“Not worth the time, money or stress”

Written on: 11/04/2015 by ReynaldoGrace442 (1 review written)

I've worked with a lot of solicitors in my time, but I can easily say that Latimer Lee are the worst. Their staff are rude, unprofessional and quite honestly it's not always clear that they know what they're doing. They blamed their mistakes on us, which is unacceptable when they are being paid to provide a service that it seems they are quite incapable of providing. They are incredibly slack, and we found with our particular solicitor, all of the work was done when she was on holiday! There's… Read Full Review

“Slow, unprofessional, and incompetent”

Written on: 16/03/2015 by 51Hanley (1 review written)

We had to chase every day as they are unresponsive and unprofessional as they were incapable of adequately responding to counter part solicitor. They took 6 months to finalise conveyancing our house. Strongly suggest you do not use them… Read Full Review

“More like a comedy club than a solicitors - avoid.”

Written on: 19/01/2015 by absolutecalamity (1 review written)

These guys are absolute clowns. Frankly, I do not believe that the gold-plated five star reviews on here are genuine. How legal firms like this are allowed to operate is beyond me. Here’s a rough outline of my experience. Instructed them in March/April of last yr to deal with our leasehold flat sale and freehold purchase. Clownish behaviour from the start. Never responded to emails or phone calls. You’d write and wait and get nothing back. In the end, I put them on a warning; get in touch… Read Full Review

“Inefficient, slow and never get back to you”

Written on: 13/01/2015 by house916 (1 review written)

I could never recommend Latimer Lee.I would avoid them like the plague. It seems impossible to speak to who you need to, they failed to return calls and respond to calls. I put 2 deals though them- the second was more expensive than other providers. I recommend Bower and Bailey as being excellent… Read Full Review

“Just awful”

Written on: 06/12/2014 by Gia225 (1 review written)

Latimer Lee took over 5 months to complete a simple purchase with no chain ! Our searches alone took 6 weeks, as other have said they do not answer emails. We very nearly lost our new home. Please don't make the same mistake as us… Read Full Review

“slow but satisfactory”

Written on: 21/11/2014 by anneglynn (1 review written)

The lady dealing with the sale of my property at his company was fantastic. It took some time to get the contract completed, but I believe a lot of this was due to the purchaser's solicitor being fastidious in his demands for information from organisations outside of our control. It was not always easy to get in contact with the person dealing with the papers, but my calls and emails were always answered. I would gladly engage you again if I needed conveyancing work. I would have liked to… Read Full Review

“Outstanding Services ”

Latimer Lee helped me with legal advice after I was injured badly in a car accident. They helped me make a successful claim and I was extremely happy with their services. They walked me though the entire process and made sure I understood each step. I am very grateful for helping me during a difficult period in my life… Read Full Review

“Avoid these solucitors”

Written on: 15/11/2014

We are in process of selling our house.Thankfully Latimer Lee are not our solicitors, but unfortunately they are our buyers solicitors. After 6 months since the sale was agreed we have finally lost patience with Latimer Lee and have now placed our property back up for sale. Latimer Lee keeping agreeing an exchange date then fail to keep to it. Our original exchange date was the 8th Oct, since then we have numerous false dawns, where time and time again we are almost ready to exchange only for… Read Full Review

“Appalling Services ”

Written on: 30/10/2014 by JadenStuart (1 review written)

This is our second property purchase this year with Latimer Lee and they are absolutely appalling. We should have learned from the first time. They never return emails, they never return phone calls, the solicitor is never around to talk when I phoned, they say they will call back but they don't. We had to chase them every day 3 -4 times a day to get anywhere. They are very slow, they had issues with their email server, they wrote letters to me with my name completely wrong, the solicitor left… Read Full Review

“Always consistant and look at every detail”

Written on: 24/10/2014 by Leonhouse34 (1 review written)

I have been a client of Latimer Lee for some time now. For me the most important thing is the finer details and making sure no corners are cut. This is where Latimer Lee stand out from the rest, they do not cut corners and they make sure the job gets done correctly and your best interests are taken care of. Once again, the team have done a great job. A happy clien once again Thanks Leon… Read Full Review

“Stay well clear”

Written on: 21/10/2014 by craigtp91 (1 review written)

Having read many good reviews about latimer lee online i decided to pick themselves to act as my conveyancer in buying my first house. The company was not the cheapest but I was informed there would be no hidden fees. From the start the process was slow with me having to chase every stage of the progress. On top of this i was then informed that the house does not have written access rights at the rear of the property. This was not a problem for me as I did not require use of the back road. This… Read Full Review

“Bad beyond belief.”

Written on: 27/09/2014 by onShoemaker342 (1 review written)

I find it difficult not to use foul language in expressing my opinion of this company. The simplest of conveyance jobs took 5 months. They are incompetent and their lack of communication is staggering. I find it hard to believe that any of them are qualified. A bunch of 15 year olds on work experience could do a better job. If you need a solicitor to buy /sell a house pick any other. They can not be worse… Read Full Review

“Non existent communications - inexplicable inaction”

Written on: 31/08/2014 by DavidSavage (1 review written)

I have used Latimer Lee for conveyance in the past and recommended them to a friend making a first time purchase. How I regret making that recommendation. One of their selling points is that business is conducted by email and the case file is kept updated so that the client can check progress online. The agent never acknowledges or replies to emails and when telephoned (and away from her desk - most of the time!) always fails to return calls. The records are not kept updated, necessitating… Read Full Review

“Horrendous service, complete lack of basic courtesy”

Written on: 28/08/2014 by BATEMANNIC (1 review written)

DO NOT TOUCH THIS FIRM WITH A BARGE POLE!..... This firm were hired by my ex husband to handle a simple transfer of equity. No money changing hands I was just signing over our buy to let to him. We sorted everything with the mortgage company and used solicitors purely to try and expedite the matter as I was trying to buy a new property. It took them weeks to send the initial transfer deed and the process stalled completely when they needed to provide my solicitors with an undertaking. They… Read Full Review

Having finally managed to get Latimer Lee to speak to my solicitor last week, and driven to their offices three times to deliver paperwork and hopefully stress to them how urgent this is, I have today found out that they have sent my tr1 to the branch and not the sealing dept. Even I, with no cpnveyancing knowledge at all knew after a 10 minute google search that this was incorrect.........my solicitors are throwing their hands in disbelief and i know face a day of driving around the country tomorrow to collect and deliver paperwork. It is like they have never done this before!!!!!!

“Absolute Rubbish - not recommended.”

Written on: 27/08/2014

We are first time buyers who had LL recommended by our broker as he said he could liaise with them on our behalf, they were not the cheapest but we thought we would pay extra to get it done properly. We would not now recommend the broker because of the bad taste dealing with LL has left in our mouths. It took 4mths (July - Nov)to move. We started to believe it would not happen and as we had to move out of our rented property, thought we would have to put our belongings into storage. They do not… Read Full Review

“helped me so much ”

Written on: 21/08/2014

I was in deep tax trouble and I didn't know what I was going to do: wage garnishments and bank levies had drained my check for a year and I was deep in payday lending loans. A friend of mine suggested Latimer Lee LLP Solicitors and upon the first meeting, I felt a huge relief off my shoulders. After struggling for a year, I at long last felt like somebody could help me recover my finances back in shape. The advisor was astounding, any questions I had was addressed honestly and thoroughly and I… Read Full Review

Clitheroekid's Comment

Written on: 28/04/2015

Terms like `wage garnishments and bank levies', which are clearly American, aroused my suspicion, so I Googled the text and guess what? Exactly the same endorsement appears on the website of Simon Resnik Hayes LLP, a firm of Attorneys in Los Angeles (it's the one from TR dated 4 June 2013)

Now I suppose it's just possible that the reviewer DID obtain wonderful advice in both LA and Bury, but I don't think I'm being unduly cynical to think it a bit unlikely!
