Recommendation for a conveyancing solicitor

Postby munchkin » Thu Feb 05, 2009 5:10 pm

The title pretty much says it all. I have had a bad experience with one Chorlton based solicitor and was wondering if anyone had one they could recommend. Ta in advance.

Try Janet Platts at Robin Burman. She did mine and she was brilliant

You get what you pay for with solicitors so don't be tempted by a bargain price. I sold a house using an internet conveyancer. They were absolutely useless and I ended up making a complaint about them, as they simply weren't bothered about me. So when I bought a house a couple of months later I made sure I used a local recommended firm, JMW. I'd happily recommend them, they were efficient, friendly and good value for money.

hi there, we also used JMW when we first moved to manchester and they were very good. Efficient, professional and i didn't think they were that expensive either. No bull, no trying to be matey, they just got on and did it.

last time we moved though we ended up having a problem as the solicitor assured us they'd done some work but turned out they'd only completed part of that task. 4 or 5 years later that's turned out to be a bit of an issue. and the solicitor in question was expensive, but more concerned with playing golf ...

Thanks for your replies.

I can't really name names as it was not to do with conveyancing and of all the people to badmouth I guess solicitors would be the most likely to be litigious!

I chose one that was more local to Chorlton in the (probably mistaken!) belief that it would help things along. Fingers crossed...

Post what you like, and then say "allegedly"... You're right off the hook.
One must always be wary of the march of the right-wing. I advocate public flogging/confiscation of assets/rehoming of their young

If they were really that bad then you should tell us who they are so others don't have the same problems. Stick to the facts, and there won't be a problem. It's only libel if it isn't true.
