Why after 12 months am I still waiting to get my late fathers money released. All I've been told it could take another 12months. This is now getting stupid. Really think I need to discuss what's going on with a solicitor.

Chorus Law are dreadful and seem to prefer to drag their feet. They act as a middle man. I took legal advice as to whether I had a case to take them to court re the sale of my mother's house which, after being put on the market with immediate offers, was still waiting to complete one year later, but was told that probate is along winded process and that some companies will take longer than others. Chorus Law unfortunately seem to fall in the longer than most category!

When it was agreed for chorus law to manage my late fathers estate, I was told it would be finalized between 9 to 12 months. I've been told your waiting on DWP but they have a back log. So why are you not chasing this matter up? You are getting paid for a service that your not providing, just dragging things on.

Being an executor to my fathers estate, I have just found out my mother has instructed Chorus Law via Barclays Bank to deal with probate. How do I stop this if they DO NOT have my permission?

Is Chorus Law regulated by a independent body? If so, who is it?

NO!! Chorus Law are totally unregulated and do as they please with absolutely nobody to stop them from ripping you off. They are not solicitors - they simply employ a solicitor to do the legal work but charge you extra for doing so.

Hi Bombelagh - thank you for your question. The time taken to finalise a case often depends on the complexity of the case. If you would like me to look into a specific case for you, please send me your details (case number and name), I will be happy to do so. Contact details can be found on the Chorus Law Review Centre page. Thank you.

They have no reason to rush because they earn interest on your money. Get a solicitor. They are not as expensive as you think if you shop around. The solicitor will not charge you till everything is completed and by then your money will be released. Make no mistake Chorus law/itc whatever they call themselves will just fob you off. They prey on the bereaved and charge thousands for a job that should cost a few hundred at most. Good luck.I know what you are going through.

As has been said they are earning interest on your money so the longer it takes the more they earn. Also Chorus Law have no legal expertise they sub contract all the work to sister companies and charge you more. The case managers are no more than call centre operatives who are trained to fob you off. As has been said get a solicitor will be cheaper and finaly good luck I know what you are going through.

Chorus Law use every trick possible to take the last few quid out of your pocket. Taking so long to close a case after probate has been granted is just one of those tricks. They will blame their solicitors, the Land Registry, YOUR OWN FAMILY MEMBERS and everyone they can think of to get as much interest from your money as they can.

Is there a reason why after a house is sold that is part of an estate - that the funds be held in an holding account by Chorus Law before it is disturbed to the heirs of the estate?

Thank you for your question. The length of time taken to complete Probate will vary from case to case depending on the complexities involved in each individual case. If you are referring to a specific case then I would be more than happy to deal with any queries you have. I would ask that you email your details to Chorus Law and I will investigate any concerns you have.

They drag things out for as long as they can because as i said before they earn interest on your money. Imagine the money they must be generating on all the poor people they reel in. Even a complicated probate case does not take the time chorus law take.
