“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 ”

Written on: 16/11/2014 by Asa380 (1 review written)

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

“Slow painful ”

Written on: 14/08/2014 by 400Pugh (1 review written)

It took multiple phone calls and e-mails to get this lot moving - I had to continually chase and ended up advising them what we did and didn't need - a simple conveyance that should have taken 6 weeks tops took just over 3 months - useless and incompetent are harsh but fair words for this shower - but they are pretty cheap… Read Full Review

Hired by my ex husband to handle a simple transfer of equity. No money exchanging hands. We had sorted everything with mortgage lender, the only reason for doing this through a solicitor was to try and make it expedient as I was trying to buy a new property. Three weeks after they were appointed and paid they had still failed to send the transfer deed to my solicitors. They would not answer the phone or respond to emails.sent by either my solicitors or my ex...their client. DO NOT TOUCH THIS… Read Full Review

“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

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
