Review of Beaumont Legal by David Inkpen

Good Value conveyancing. I had apprehensions about using an online conveyancing process as I know from pass experiences how stressful moving can be. But I must say, using Beaumont was the best decision that we made. If you are a confident in sending emails and uploading documents to your account then do use them. They are always happy to help in anyway they can.
My case handler Steve was prompt, competent and always on the ball, and dealt with searches and queries extremely well, I cannot praise him enough! He contacted me regularly to keep me inform to how things were progressing. And I must also mention Jordan, who was also excellent when standing in for Steve while he was away.
My communication to the company was split 50/50 email and phone, depending on what was on my mind and what I needed to communicate.
Thank you Steve Jordan & Beaumont we hope to use you in the future.

Superb value for money compared with High Street solicitors even when my case became unexpectedly complicated. Always returned calls, clear communications, clarity of information and down to earth honest advice. Highly recommended. As long as you can upload onto the site you wont fail to be pleased with the service or the fee!

Couldn't be happier with the speed and quality of the service we received as a first time buyer. We've never used solicitors before and have mainly heard negative things about solicitors so our expectations weren't too high but Beaumont Legal have been fantastic. Providing you can access emails and a printer and scanner then it is a super quick and easy way of dealing with solicitors. Me and my husband both work full time so being able to communicate mainly by email was perfect for us. Our case handler did change 2 or 3 times but this didn't slow down the process at all and the quality of communication was consistent throughout.

There's a lot of good things about the experience i had with this company but there were a number of frustrations at the end.

I spent most of my house purchase standing up for Beaumont Legal as I'm aware that they probably get a lot of stick due to impatient clients. On the most part I am satisfied with the overall experience but there are a few areas of improvement before I give away 5 stars.

Communication is below average. Our case worker didn't call me back once after numerous calls. In the latter stages I would wait on hold to make sure I got to speak to him. Email and message board response was minimal too.

Things would go quiet for long periods of time and then you would get a bulk of things at once. This was only really issue in the late stages as I felt that it was a bit rushed and unprepared at the last minute.

Charges would be added to our statement without prior consent and the pricing structure was confusing. I had to challenge a number of times to get items removed or changed to match the original pricing list. One such charge was for some anti fraud comment to be added to the title register. We were given warning of this but it was amongst a lot of detail in an email that had nearly 30 pages to read. It was lucky i spotted it as it was optional but was added as default so had to be removed by way of writing.

The case handler was not forthright with an anticipated completion date until the very last minute. As we were the bottom of the chain in rented accommodation,you can imagine the problems this caused us. We were homeless for nearly a week and had to make last minute arrangements which could have been avoided with a little preparedness.

Other than the bad points above, i would say that the concept of an online solicitor is very useful however i just don't think Beaumont are quite there yet. As soon as there are more competitors online then we should start to see a better service emerge.

But what can i say, we now have a brand new home which was successfully managed by this company so it can't all be bad, just don't expect it to pan out the way you plan it to!

The buyers of our house are using Beaumont Legal, and a straight forward sale, where both buyer and seller want a quick completion, is dragging on for 3 months due to delays caused by this solicitor. There are no complications or hold ups anywhere, they are just very slow to do their job. Their response to requests to get on with it, we have heard from the agents is "we take as long as we take!"

Do not use these if you want a quick and stress free transaction!

Review of Beaumont Legal by Adam hucknall

As a first time buyer with no chain the whole process should've taken 6-8 weeks, not three months.

The rates charged are competitive but i would have happily paid more to have a senior solicitor assigned to my purchase. The plus side is the senior staff know what they are doing and are very good at communicating what is happening with the purchase and what is needed to move forward.
The down side is i only got through to a senior solicitor once the person assigned to my purchase had made so many mistakes the sale could have fallen through because the sellers solicitors thought we were stalling.

From the offset she was unclear as to what information and documentation she needed from us. Then after a month and a half of them not answering the phone and when they did - being unable to give a clear answer as to what was needed we then got a moving process. This could've been very prompt but again was slowed down by the amount of time it took to answer simple questions - normally between 1-3 days. Something which again could've been sorted over the phone very quickly but with the need to go away and "check" answers slowed everything.

It depends entirely on who you get assigned to your case, but if they are willing to let people like the one assigned to my case work i would be very worried about instructing them.

Myself and my fiancé were buying our first home so had no idea what we were doing. As we both work full time we looked into online solicitors then chose Beaumont Legal.

I am so happy we did and could not recommend them enough. They were extremely fast in responding and got our purchase sorted a lot faster than we expected. They seemed to always be on the ball and not just sat on things for days as I have heard most solicitors do.

Far more economical than competitor quotes but no budget service. BL are diligent & efficient. They dealt with buying and selling property and we changed the properties in question three times so it all got complicated but BL kept track and delivered, transferring unused funds from one case to another. Good service. Would use again.

Would give 0 stars if i could. The worst experience I've had moving home. Could never get hold of my case handler and had to threaten to make a complaint before he called me back. Took much longer than it needed to because they sent a request to the wrong address (even though I had provided the correct address on the portal they never check) and didn't bother to chase until I asked. On the eventual completion day, the statement they sent me was wrong. I asked why I was being over charged and they stated that after completing a review, thats the amount I owed. After 2 weeks of chasing they have finally sent me a cheque for the overpayment. Do yourself a favour and avoid!!!

The most awful company I have ever dealt with. My purchase took 4 months to go through as they never picked up the phone, answered emails and then when my mortgage company paid them a cash back fee which was meant to be sent to me after 5 weeks of chasing I am still waiting on constantly get the same message. NO ONE IS AVAILABLE TO SPEAK TO YOU. STAY AWAY FROM THESE SHARKS.

Avoid at all cost! Do not waste your money. Beaumont legal are dealing with the sale of the house we are buying and they are absolutely awful. They barely ever pass vital information on to the other solicitors and they are getting extremely close to the sale of 3 houses falling through.

The woman we are dealing with would be more useful working in a pet shop than at a solicitors! Just not worth the money at all!

Totally shocking experience. Its so bad you wouldn't even believe it. Passed from pillar to post during process I think about 5 different people ended up dealing with the transaction.
Seems they spend their days with Lord Lucian as he's probably easier to contact and talk to on the telephone. Estate Agent was a their wits end too.
Will put it down to experience, but won't be going back again.. I would encourage you if your looking for someone to pass on by.
Please don't ask me to put feedback at your email address..its just another channel for you to lose bad feedback and brush under the carpet. You don't care if you read the web all about you..Go and enjoy your happy clapping with your deluded new American owners. So many unhappy people can't be wrong can they!!

Brilliant experience. No fuss & UK based staff always there to return phone calls or answer emails. On-line facility to upload documents was a real time-saver. Would definitely recommend & definitely use again for conveyancing of residential property. In fact the experience was so good, I would consider using them for any legal matters. Our completion day was incredibly smooth with us being kept fully informed at every stage. Well done! N.B. Would have been 5 stars but only for on-line progress bar not working.

Review of Beaumont Legal by Tom Wood

Great modern conveyancing service. Communication by email and online portal rather than post and fax - some traditional solicitors seem to be stuck in the 1980s. If you don't have unrealistic expectations (e.g. it might take a day or two to get a reply to an email, which is fine, still better than waiting a week for a reply to a letter!) then you should be fine.
Much like the budget airlines, the prices are low for a reason, there is obviously a lot of automation and streamlined processes, which is great if that's what you are expecting and you're happy to deal online. If you want face to face contact and the traditional way then use a traditional solicitor (and pay for it!)
The other advantage of using a big firm is that if your assigned person is unavailable (on holiday etc) there will be someone else to pick up your case and ensure it is progressing.

Fast, reliable, supportive, great communication. Highly recommended.I am very thankful for exceptional service I have received from Beaumont Legal when I was buying my first property. They are super fast, supportive and communication is outstanding. I have received answer to each of my queries within 2 hours by email, sometimes even instantly.

Constant contact between Beaumont and ourselves, the online portal makes everything super easy and it's clear to see what you have / haven't done yet.

Phone / Email contact is easy and fast rather than post / fax communication.

Made the experience of buying our first home easy. Thank you!

Used Beaumont Legal a couple of times recently, in 2015 and then 2016. This year has seen a huge improvement in their system with the new online portal. It is so clear and easy to follow, and makes the whole process a doddle. I much prefer to do everything online than by post so this suited me really well. Also had good communication with our conveyancer and both our sale and purchase went through smoothly.

Currently have a house purchase going through this company and all I can say is the service is absolutely shocking.
I paid them 2 weeks ago when I started the process and they have not completed a shred of work.
If by a miracle you actually manage to speak to someone other than the switch board all they do is blame the sellers party of whom in fact are currently being held up by Beaumont legal. Not good!

The process seemed to start off very fast and efficient. We had an issue with the chain when moving home and did not receive much information from them for a while. We had to chase them up on a few occasions to find out what was happening. In all was very good service.

Beaumont Legal slashed the price of conveyancing by half of what high street solicitors offer. All you need is a scanner and you can send all your documentation. Communication was prompt and easy to follow.
Totally pain free sale of house. Thank you Amy Pickering.

I was kept up to date throughout the whole process and things were explained to me in layman terms so I could understand. Areeba Vikar was particularly good and listened to me and always got back to me when I needed her to. It had to be rushed through and she went above and beyond to get the completion and exchange through on a tight deadline. Thank you. Will definately use you again and ask for Areeba personally.

There user interface is SO GOOD!!! I know so many people who have had to send all of their documents away for review, something being wrong, resending... With Beaumont, you just upload it onto their portal and can download later if you want to. When steps were done, it was updated on the To-do style table.

Not only was the online experience very easy, but the staff and response to any questions via the online messaging system or phone was very good. On top of all of this, they were cheapest on a price comparison site.

Would definitely recommend and will be using again

My experience with Beaumont legal was absolutely disgraceful. They are totally unprofessional. Sobia Asghar was supposedly in control of my affairs, but she, as well as all of Beaumont legal staff were just a waste of time and totally amateur, playing the blame game with lost documents and information. Communication with them was always painful, the only word I can use is incompetent. I would never recommend Beaumont legal or Sobia Asghar. I really have difficulty in understanding the level of incompetence I had to endure.

Review of Beaumont Legal by Acer Yeo

We used Beaumont in 2015 and the service after a shaky start was approaching 4 star.
We had a named case handler who answer the phone and did his best to help.
This time they have gone across to a on-line service which provided no method of printing out the forms we filled out.
I tried to explain the forms were legal documents which I wanted to thoroughly check before submitting.
They failed to understand.
We did our forms by hand and then sent them in the post, so that we would have copies.
Unfortunately they disabled the on-line monitoring. To get a status we always had to phone the case handler.
He never answered the phone and we would get a multitude of other people to phone us back who did not know our case.
They would make promises which just didn't happen and then there would be a different Beaumont employee apologising for the broken promises.
They would go on holiday after making promises, knowing that they would not be there to carry them out the promises.
They would try and exchange contracts after 5pm and are then were surprised that everyone had gone home.
They are a complete joke and the worst part is we are still waiting!!!
Hopefully one of their directors (who are impossible to contact) will read this review, sort out their staff and get our contracts exchanged!!!!

This was our first home buy, and the process was pretty seamless.

Very helpful staff, everything has gone through for the date we were pushing for (with 3 in the chain which I know can hold things up), and very happy with the whole process.

The only thing that could be done better is responses to emails. It could often take up to a week to get responses, which can be a little frustrating when you are pushing for a specific date for completion, and have a lot to sort out around a specific date.

A quick 'thanks we got your email, and we'll get back to you as soon as we can' would have made a big difference, other than that though everything did go through for the date we wanted, and the help and support along the way has been great.

If you do choose to use Beaumont (and I really can recommend them as they made the process which is a first for us pretty straight forward), I would suggest using the phone rather than emails to chase up if you have an urgent enquiry as it always worked better for us.

All in all though, I would certainly be happy to recommend Beaumont.

Review of Beaumont Legal by Bevrob21

We used Beaumont Legal for what i thought was a pretty straight forward property sale... i.e. no chain on either side. It started really well with great communication and the ability to check the progress of the case online. However we were waiting on documents from the buyers solicitors and our solicitor didn't see fit to chase these documents up for over 4 weeks causing a huge delay to the process. In fairness there was another issue to resolve following this delay which was not there fault which they were very helpful to resolve, however I cannot help but wonder if this was due to the complaint i had made over the previous delays. Beaumont Legal did nothing wrong, however they also didn't chase up or push forward the sale.
What was a simple sale with no chain took 15 weeks!!!!
If this is how long it takes for a simple no chain, house sale, how long would it take for anything with any additional considerations.
Would not recommend if you want to complete anytime soon!!!

I used Beaumont Legal a few years ago when I sold my house and they were faultless. This time round I was buying (having been renting since the sale). I cannot recommend them enough. Not only did I ring up and ask for a discount as a returning client but they delivered exactly what they promised. Natalie Earnshaw was fantastic. I would email her direct and always have a reply within 24hrs. I had no difficulty picking up the phone and speaking to someone too if I ever needed to. I was kept informed at every stage and had no concerns about completing on the day I had chosen.
