Advantages None. AVOID THEM
Disadvantages Too many to note here. Read review below.
Everything that everyone here says is true -AVOID THEM. They are the least professional people I have ever had the displeasure of coming across.Examples of incompetence:
Things they have 'sent out' in the post frequently never arrive (often because they have never actually sent them)
Things you send them never seem to get there (ask them to check and double check as often they will find under their noses)
They NEVER keep you informed
They like 'sending' lots of letters to all parties (you, buyers/sellerslawyers) that no one seems to receive time and time again. They rarely seem to chase the other solicitors but instead send further letters
You have to do all the chasing - and your calls are rarely returned
Solicitor is never available to speak to you
The juniors you speak to are useless (and haven't got a clue what is going on -solicitor tells me one thing and they tell me another)
They came up with a problem on the day of exchange (which they could have told me 2 weeks previously)
When I eventually spoke to the lawyer, she took an address to send correspondence to and still sent it to the wrong address!
Lawyer called me accidentally, told me we were in a position to exchange (on the day we WERE supposed to exchange), laughed for 5 minutes because of the mistake she'd made, ensured she'd call back and did she? No. No surprises there. Useless.
