“Shocking service ”

Written on: 21/12/2018 by Ddd123456 (1 review written)

This company are beyond a joke. Do not use them. They take far too long to respond to you, call you back, chase other parties and in general, slow to do anything. They don’t want to know you during the whole process let alone after if you get any problems. I’ve cutrentky got an ombudsman complaint ongoing due to their lack of care and duty towards me, which is now costing me money at the post completion stage. STAY AWAY FROM TGIS COMPANY!… Read Full Review

“In a service Industry they are a diservice”

Written on: 21/12/2018 by Foggie60 (1 review written)

Do not use this firm. Without doubt the worst company I have ever had dealing with. Totally inept, terrible communication and slow to resolve issues. Rang over 50 times to my conveyencers but only spoke to her 5 times as anyone on the team is prepared to 'help even if they don't know your case. She even got her Rottweiler friend to contact you when there was bad news. They don't chase other solicitors, instead rely too much on several emails. There system is rubbish and never up to date. Asked… Read Full Review

“Diabolical Service ”

Written on: 13/12/2018 by juHaynes368 (1 review written)

This company is a joke,in my opinion they are unfit to practice law. Slow, unresponsive and completely incompetent as well as incredible rude and disinterested in doing the work I paid then for. A simple paurchase look 8 months to complete and the bill was double their original quote… Read Full Review

“Do not use this awful company ”

Written on: 28/11/2018

The poor service and rude staff aside, they are professionally incompetent. They were unable to find a planning permission application for the path that runs outside the front of the property I was buying,and did not find out that the owner of the property, soon to be me, was liable for paying for the work. I know ha e a £5k bill. There complaints process is a joke. Do not use this company… Read Full Review

“Avoid!!”

Written on: 01/11/2018 by Deandre129 (1 review written)

I've used this company 3 years ago and they were brilliant. And for the beginning part of this process they were good, communicative, engaged etc. They are well priced compared to others. However, you have to do a load of the chasing yourself. My conveyancer was always 1 step behind and would only do stuff when you called up to chase. She would then start doing stuff on your case whilst on the phone which was great, but then after that, nothing seemed to get done until you call again. Her… Read Full Review

“Use this company at your peril”

Written on: 29/09/2018 by McIntyre114 (1 review written)

Buying a house is probably the most expensive purchase you'll ever make. If you're not careful, it can also be the most stressful. And nothing that Premier Property Lawyers does will reduce that stress in any way (check them out online - they trade under a host of different names....including my home move and Ezie) They're said to be Britain's largest conveyancer. It might be that your estate agent recommends them - they earn commission for doing so. When bought through your estate agent they… Read Full Review

Having my own nightmare contacting PPL and getting any progress after 4 and half months. Was just checking to see if it was just me. Clearly not.

“Frustrating and incompetent ”

Written on: 13/08/2018 by 362Daniels (1 review written)

This company is quite frankly the worst company ever. Speak to different person every time you call. No one cares, can’t get a straight answer from them about why things are taking so long. I have to call every single day to make sure they are progressing the file. Making what is already a stressful situation far more stressful… Read Full Review

“Worst lawyers ever! Nearly lost me my house. ”

Written on: 30/07/2018 by Funseth (1 review written)

Totally incompetent. Rude. Indiffernt to nearly losing out house sale. We pretty much had to do everything. Had to call them daily as they couldn’t care less about helping us. Purple bricks should be ashamed for recommending them!… Read Full Review

“THE worst "lawyers" ever!”

Written on: 23/07/2018 by JamieFitch (1 review written)

This is the worst firm ever in the history of the world. It's really sad how these people are allowed to trade and be called solicitors. They could not be bothered to work on a simple transaction and just kept sending meaningless emails in reply to my request for SPECIFIC updates. Quite frankly everyone would be better of those pretenders just disappear from the market. NEVER, EVER USE THEM!!!… Read Full Review

Completely agree. They almost derailed our sale completely by not responding to emails and then making inconsistent requests. They were utterly incompetent and should not be doing business.

If you were their client, you have grounds for making an official complaint to the Legal Ombudsman. We can’t because it was our buyer using them and they nearly derailed a 4 property chain because of their incompetence. I called the Legal Imbudsman and the conveyancing regulator CLC and they didn’t want to know. Never mind that PLP is clearly bringing their profession into disrepute.

“Horrendous service”

Written on: 29/06/2018 by steveatms (1 review written)

I'm in the unfortunate position of buying a property where my vendor has chosen to use 'Premier'. To say their service is abysmal would be generous. This company does a great dis-service to the legal profession. Their communication, even with their clients, is slow, vague and often non existent. I've since spoken to an estate agent who says this company has been the cause of several failed transactions and that he actively discourages people from using them… Read Full Review

“Do NOT use PPL”

Written on: 20/06/2018 by WoodD (1 review written)

I implore you not to use this company, Premier Property Lawyers. They also go under the names - Q- Quinton; eWay; Edgecote. One star is one too many. They do not respond to e mails, telephone calls, voice messages or any other form of communication. Selling our home has been the most stressful thing we have ever done due to their incompetence and total lack of customer care. Our conveyancer was as much use as a chocolate teapot. We only got the money from the sale of our home after I threatened… Read Full Review

“Easy conveyancing ”

Written on: 10/06/2018 by amandaguestwyutre (1 review written)

So easy to use. Everything done on line. Easy to see how far the buying process has been and to go. Upload documents is easy. You are notified when documents need attention. It was quick and easy. Had no issues at all. I would use again and recommend to others… Read Full Review

Bet you were buying through one of their tie-in estate agents. All other clients go to the bottom of the pile.

“Incompetence on a biblical scale”

Written on: 04/05/2018 by KaitlynMaldonado (1 review written)

I had the misfortune to use these people a few years ago and they were utterly awful. I had to send in documents over and over again, I couldn't get hold of them, they never returned calls or emails. On completion they were supposed to hold back some funds and send to my account but they didn't, despite being told time and time again. Now I find myself in a chain with these clowns at the top of it. We were about to exchange yesterday when it transpires that Premier Property Lawyers had not… Read Full Review

“Probably the Worst Lawyers in the world”

Written on: 03/05/2018 by Patterson1994 (1 review written)

Where to start. I am trying to buy a property the sellers are using this outfit. Terrible in every respect. Don't answer questions, don't reply to emails, phone calls, don't send documents when instructed. Even if they are free of charge stay clear you have been warned… Read Full Review

“Warning they are not solicitors”

Written on: 25/04/2018 by Lawbuddy (1 review written)

Lawyers are not solicitors Knowing the law is one thing no solicitor is allowed to practise under a Limited Company under the rules of practising Law. This company has no licenced solicitors, and if you give your money over to them for a property and they go Bankrupt before the transaction is passed over to the seller or buyer as a limited company you will lose everything. That is what limited is! They are protected by Limited Liability and you do not have the law on your side if that happens… Read Full Review

“Terrible”

Written on: 12/04/2018 by 175Lee (1 review written)

I would expect a large number of reviews on here are false. Terrible communication when purchasing our first house to the extent that the purchase almost didn't go through. ON completion the documentation was not correct as they had not checked it and we have been trying to get this sorted for the past 3 months. Pay some extra money and use a reputable local solicitor, will be more than worth it for the anguish that this company have caused… Read Full Review

“Slow in progress ”

Written on: 09/03/2018 by 398Bennett (1 review written)

Premier property lawyers have been slow and not very communicative. I've had to chase them constantly with each phone call/email being as unhelpful as the previous. Hoping this corse of action prompts some response and progress toward my case. I understand there has been some issues in the office, but that's your problem, not mine… Read Full Review

“Friendly and Professional Convencing”

Written on: 16/02/2018

An absolute pleasure to work with from start to finish - which only took 3 months to both sell a house and buy a new one. The person I dealt with was fantastic as was another guy. Highly recommended and they make it very easy to stay on top of the whole process. He was always available on phone and email to answer my many questions. Zoom995 recommended them to us and we were very happy with both companies… Read Full Review
