“Incompetent and slow - use a local solcitor instead”

Written on: 19/07/2018 by Jovany111 (1 review written)

Was referred to Chorus Law and they stressed they had huge competence in trusts, dealing with gifts from natural income, foreign shares and house sales. In reality they have minimum expertise. Despite having a good case manager who coordinated stuff the so called experts were poor - forms were missed, property transfer took 16months after buyer and price agreed ( buyer's solicitor at point of referring CL legal team to trade body for incompetence), I ended up having to deal with a lot of the foreign shares as nobody seemed to have a clue at CL. Also I had to point out the IHT paid to HMRC must be wrong as nearly 100k more than I would have thought and more than CL had told me it would be - their answer was sorry they had filled forms in wrong! and a further 3 month delay. Various documents like dividend payments lost by CL as well. Nearly 3 years and estate still not sorted. Use a local solicitor who will proactively deal with your estate rather than this company. Why HSBC and Barclays referred all their customers here I do not understand.
