“Thank you for all your hard work!”

Written on: 19/06/2014 by SeamusFlanagan242 (1 review written)

The staff members here are highly skilled at what they do. They are also dedicated to providing you with the best legal help. The claim that I had was incredibly grueling at first because I was working with a solicitor who didn't have my best interest in mind. After that occurrence, I wasn't too sure about hiring this group, but I decided to hire them because they seemed the most genuine. After firing that solicitor, and choosing to work with Latimer Lee my case turned around for the better. I… Read Full Review

“highly recommend”

Written on: 16/06/2014 by Ellianaa1982 (1 review written)

The level of service I received was excellent for the sale of my house and purchase of another property from start to finish. I saved hundreds of pounds compared to a conventional solicitor. All my calls and e-mails were dealt with promptly and efficiently, I will certainly recommend Latimer Lee to my friends and family and would not hesitate to use them in future… Read Full Review

“Liarz”

Written on: 11/04/2014 by RussoItaliannm424 (1 review written)

I am certain that most of the positive reviews are fake. I am an ex employee of this firm and I can confirm that those who make the decisions are completely clueless. They have zero customer service skills and even worse management skills. The poor employees work incredibly hard and do their best under very stressful conditions. The managers have an environment where they try to make as money as possible at the customers expense. Avoid them and shop around...there are better firms out there!… Read Full Review

Cunard's Comment

Written on: 24/04/2014

My sell deal was agreed back in January this year and this solicitors still do not have exchange date!!! I am really frustrated because I have to pay mortgage from my own packet (tenants moved out) so I am effectively losing money now.
It is very difficult to get hold of the solicitor, I need 4 phone call attempts to actually speak to her... She maybe replied to my 3-4 emails only, the rest is just ignored.
When I actually get to speak to her I hear thousands of excuses as to how busy she is.. I DO NOT CARE!!!!!! Just get on with the sale and I never want to speak to them again, WHAT A NIGHTMARE

“Highly recommend!”

Written on: 22/03/2014 by Mst77 (1 review written)

I had a fantastic expirince with Latimer Lee, we exchanged within five weeks, this was always going to be a tight deadline but it was met with no issues. Very informative, I was updated every few days as to the progress by email and phone. Hassle free service, very pleased! Staff always pleasant and professional… Read Full Review

“Clueless..delayed completion”

Written on: 13/03/2014 by imBlake194 (1 review written)

My completion was delayed and I ended paying double for removals. We had already exchanged a week earlier so the completion date was set. We were looking forward to moving into our first home together but the experience we had with LL was horrific. The process took long enough to reach exchange ( about 5 months) but the stress we had to go through on completion day was just awful. It turned out LL had forgot to send the request to our mortgage provider in time for them to release the advance… Read Full Review

“Great Service! Recommended!”

Written on: 03/10/2013

Really great service from this law firm. Quick and very friendly. I called them several times during my case and they were always very pleasant and could not do enough to make my experience a pleasant one. I used them for conveyancing and also for another family law related problem over the space of 6 months and they were great both times. Will use again and highly recommend you do if needing a legal service with a smile. ;-)… Read Full Review

“Painful”

Written on: 24/09/2013

The whole experience has been painful and difficult. They didn't progress things unless pestered every day, didn't return calls or emails until i called the partner handling formal complaints. The work felt sloppy, i had to raise questions myself, flag typos repeatedly, documents went missing and even after the sale is complete, some documents haven't been taken care of! I felt like communication wasn't part of the deal, and our solicitor was borderline rude at times. Our conveyancing deal took… Read Full Review

Holleybush's Comment

Written on: 10/01/2014

This sounds like a similar scenario, only it took 13 months for our house sale to complete even when there was no chain involved and it was a first-time buyer. Latimer Lee have failings in not doing what they say they will, dragging matters on unnecessarily whilst charging for their time, whilst providing unclear and contradictory advice - all in all, an absolute nightmare. Take heed and avoid Latimer Lee like the plague

“Awful”

Written on: 20/09/2013

Emails are not replied to ever. Calls are never returned. Post goes missing which causes more of a delay. When I do eventually get to speak to my solicitor, she's always rude and abrupt as if I am an inconvenience to her. When I complained to them that email was ignored. They are useful and have made me quite ill… Read Full Review

“DREADFUL!”

Written on: 03/09/2013

The conveyancing service offered by Latimer Lee is absolutely awful. What should have been a very straightforward process has taken ages. Emails are never responded too, promised deadlines are never met and phone calls not returned. The price was no better than those offered elsewhere. I would not recommend Latimer Lee to anyone… Read Full Review

“Great Solicitor”

Written on: 01/08/2013

Great solicitors, worked for me. Easy transaction, brilliant price and all went very smoothly. It took a total of 8 wks from seeing the house we wanted to our contract being signed and us moving in. A big part of this speedy process was due to Latimer Lee chasing the other solicitor to get things moving. I cannot speak highly enough about the level of service we provided. I felt compelled to write this review as there seem to be quite a lot of negative reviews on here and I don't understand… Read Full Review

“Unnecessarily stressed!!”

Written on: 25/07/2013

I SO wish I'd read these reviews first.. That's what you get for going with a quote comparison site!! Been 3 months and we still haven't exchanged contracts in an empty house!! - no chain in sight! I have to chase everything.. And each time I ring Latimer Lee, the phone is answered by a polite person then I'm put throught to people that seriously need some customer service training! One of them actually LAUGHED when I said I was tired of waiting and wanted contacts exchanging within a week!!… Read Full Review

“Just Awful”

Written on: 24/07/2013

Having sold our previous property very smoothly through a different solicitor our mortgage broker advised Latimer Lee for our new property due to their competitive price. Well this was a big mistake, they never returned calls and were never on hand when trying to get answers. Not only were we constantly trying to chase them to find out what was going on but the estate agent and also our mortgage broker who I’m sure felt guilty that he advised them to us. It was very hard to speak to anyone… Read Full Review

“Friendly and Professional”

Written on: 24/07/2013

Very positive experience with Latimer Lee LLP when using for Conveyance on the sale of our house last month. They were very quick to answer my calls and did everything they could to speed the process along. When I called my questions were always received in a happy and friendly manner. It was our first sale so I had lots of questions and I can honestly say that they answered each one of them in a way I could understand and I felt like they were only too happy to help. The Sale went through in… Read Full Review

Very positive experience with this firm for us, we used Latimer Lee for conveyancing on our house sale last month. They were great. With it being our first house sale we had lots of questions regarding the process, all of these they were answered in language we could understand and we weren't made to feel stupid for asking. The sale of the house went through without a hitch, we had to do very little as they took care of everything for us. I did quite a bit of shopping around to get the best… Read Full Review

“Terrible and Awful”

Written on: 19/07/2013

We were selling and our buyers were using latimerlee. Throughout the process my solicitor had problems getting latimerlee to do anything that would progress our case. We were deseperate to sell and we know that that buyers were keen to move in however this was lost on latimerlee. They took an eternity to check enquiries and even when everything was ready they took nearly 2 weeks to confirm they were ready to exchange. Apparently a partner had tosign the file off. When it came to completion day… Read Full Review

“Great Conveyancing Services, Highly Recommended”

Written on: 10/07/2013 by devodoberman (1 review written)

I would definitely recommend Latimer Lee LLP to anybody requiring Conveyancing legal services. We used them last month to move house and I they were brilliant. Very helpful and the whole thing went through very quickly. I'm not sure why there are not more positive reviews on here for Latimer Lee. I have recommended them already to a friend and they received the same great service - I can only assume that people don't usually take the time to write a positive review and are more likely to… Read Full Review
