Review of Countrywide Property Lawyers by nick_h_nz

Advantages: None whatsoever
Disadvantages: Impossible to summarise. Everything was bad.

Weeks down the line, we are still no closer to completion, and ever closer to everything falling through. That we have got this far is only down to the fact that two buyers down the chain, the buyers have been in a position to remove themselves from the f ... Read review

Ludlow Thompson Rip Off Con Men
Review of ludlowthompson.com by LJGems

Advantages: None
Disadvantages: AVOID, AVOID, AVOID CON ARTISTS!

I found this review helpful, but I would strongly advise you to remove the word con men. It may very well be true, but it can be taken as libel. I think I would use something like unscrupulous instead. Same general meaning but less likely for them to be able to make a case of it. I only know as issue was made over me calling one firm cowboy builders years ago - they were - and worse they did an awful job, I caught an employee searching through my underwear drawer claiming he was looking for the loo and then he took offense when I said he wouldn't find it in a dresser drawer and peed all over the house - but I couldn't prove it and could have gotten into trouble. by Marge3781
