“incompetent”

Written on: 07/02/2019 by wilsonmurrey (1 review written)

I don't know who recommended then to our family to deal with the probate of our Mother & Father estate, DO NOT USE CHORUS LAW OR ITC or whatever they call themselves now that the co-op has taken over

The most incompetent company l have had the misfortune to do business with.
The ability to complete simply tasks, ie update records with new contact details yet still use the old records 5 months later,resulting in correspondence &cheques going to old address. l only found out that this had happened after a conversation with my sister some 4 months after the event Sept 2018.It took sometime to actually make contact.

The same thing happened in December 2018, old details used again.
Then in Jan 2019 to received a email stating additional funds were due from Sept 2018 and would be sent through, l was unable to make contact with originator of the email from Choruslaw, three emails and a phone call,but to no avail.

Finally dealt with a member who said the cheque had already gone in Sept 2018
but I am unable to get answers to this email.

Friend died, Widow went to the bank-Barclay's. They told him they had a bereavement service. Signed up and it was Corus Law. They act on your behalf in matters of banking, probate, household account services. They are not lawyers. Over twelve months later and relieved of £6,000 the widow was finally shut of them.
They sent an estate agent to photograph the house. She had no intention of selling up.
They put an advert in the local paper informing anyone with debt interest to contact them. I suspected they went further and I was correct. They put a notice in the London Gazette.
They made an issue of a small piece of land-an old footpath at the side of the house which the council had sold to them and was incorporated in the Land Registry.
Totally unnecessary and incompetent.
