No stars awarded as this company (awarded one star to proceed with this complaint) is totally incompetent and I totally agree with the other negative comment below. We are in a chain of only 4 people and have been held up by Gorvins for the last two weeks (we aim to complete in a week's time) because they didn't conduct their money laundering processes right at the start of the transaction! This has caused a lot of undue stress with all four in the chain. Avoid them if you can, it's not worth the time of day.

Gorvins Solicitors replied:
Hi Bowen,
We are really sorry to hear about your experience with us. Could you please contact us directly so that we look into the matter and advise accordingly? Please email enquiries@gorvins.com marked FAO Katie Taylor

Just selling a house so can’t comment on how a purchase was handled. I found Emma very efficient, friendly and professional. She was in regular communication by email, keeping me fully informed about progress and always answered any questions I had promptly. I would certainly recommend them

Don’t make the same mistake as I did and ignore the negative reviews. They’re there for a reason. Don’t be fooled by the cheap price. You truly get what you pay for. THE MOST INCOMPETENT BUNCH OF PEOPLE IVE EVER COME ACROSS. How they call themselves "SOLICITORS" is beyond me and how they're still in business im not sure but i am making it my mission to make sure everyone sees these reviews if i can save anyone else from wasting their TIME and MONEY! Completely and utterly USELESS excuse of a firm. The responses are slim to none. . A YEAR later I’m STILL chasing one of my many appointed solicitors.. Not worth the money you think you are saving. Avoid gorvins solicitors at all costs!!!

Absolutely terrible. Cowboys. Con artists.

I wouldn’t given them any stars if that was possible. No communication whatsoever. We were selling our property and our estate agent hadn’t heard from them, not once! They do not return calls or answer emails. Kerry Sharples the head of complaints is exactly the same.

Do not use. For your health please do not use them. Absolute waste of time. Paying to chase and do all the work yourself.

Review of Gorvins Solicitors by Rick

People looking for a solicitor to carry out residential conveyancing need to avoid Gorvins Solicitors as though they were the plague. I have never known or experienced incompetence by a company like I have with them. My girlfriend and I were first time buyers and the vendors were moving into an empty house so you would imagine this would have been a fairly straight forward process; how wrong we were.



The vendor’s solicitors, the estate agent and I were trying laboriously to get hold of Gorvins upon completion of the surveys and enquiries right up until completion and exchange took place several weeks later; continuously being promised call backs and responses which never occurred. Personally, I was having to take time away from work to chase up Gorvins multiple times a day and even had to take it upon myself to contact the estate agent for them to relay information back to the sellers and their solicitors as Gorvins were so incapable and unwilling to do this themselves. To make matters worse, I was constantly being told contradictory pieces of information by Gorvin’s employees about the progress of my case; which when challenged about each one would claim they were not sure and needed to get back to me; which obviously never happened.



As a further result of Gorvin’s incompetence there was a 2 week delay to the completion date, which they had assured me would not happen as they had misplaced all responses they had received to enquiries; upon discovering them it took a further barrage of phone calls again from the vendor’s solicitor, the estate agent and myself to ensure they went ahead with exchange of contracts before Christmas.



The delay to the move date has resulted in us having to cancel and re-arrange building work we had scheduled before Christmas, a date which I was assured by Gorvins would be going ahead. This work now can’t be carried out for another 2 weeks, which is going to cause yet more disruption and inconvenience.



I can safely say that due to Gorvins Solicitors, all the excitement and joy of buying our first home has been completely drained away and caused undue stress to both ourselves and the vendors. On their website, it says they were a Finalist for Law Firm of the Year at the Manchester Legal Awards in 2018; from the service they have given, I can only imagine there has been a typing error by those administering the awards as Gorvins have no place being within a country mile of them.

Review of Gorvins Solicitors by Holly

Awful experience , worst solicitor ever used.
They never answer the phone and when they do they say they are too busy dealing with completions, I am surprised they get many to complete if the way we have been treated is anything to go by.

They received a contract on the 5th December and they are still to look at it for us.

When asked who I can complain to they gave the email address of Kerry Sharples who will only respond to emails and will not take calls.

shambles , this has delayed our customer purchasing a property, we will never use this company again or recommend any of our customers.
I wouldn't give this firm any stars at all but it makes you select at least one.


if you need a good , easy to deal with solicitor I suggest you go elsewhere

Never pick up phone and are incompetent

Gorvins in Manchester do not pick up the phone unless you go through to their new customers telephone line.

They are incompetent and you can't even complain to a manager because they won't answer the phone or even answer emails.

They incorrectly read the lease to the flat that i was selling incorrectly and misquoted the requirements on there which almost cost me £1000 if i had not read it myself and double checked.

I instructed another solicitor half way through the sale because they were incompetent and slow.
Bunch of monkeys

Review of Gorvins Solicitors by Ed Beech

I'll start by saying that Gorvins did not act on my behalf but they were recommended to my buyer by Purple Bricks. The whole process has taken around 15 weeks and there was no chain involved either side. We have ended up moving the week before Christmas which is far from ideal. To say that this process has been stressful is a huge understatement, the level of incompetence I have encountered from Michael Jennings and the conveyancing team has made Theresa May's government seem like consummate professionals.

I was in constant communication with the buyer through the process due to the desire to complete ASAP and get settled in before Christmas, and if it hadn't been for our continued badgering then I suspect we wouldn't have completed even now.

From the start Michael Jennings was elusive, only communicating by the occasional email and even then giving extremely unrealistic time frames for completion (he said 3-4 weeks and this was before searches had been done!) And when we got further into the process he NEVER came to the phone, always on lunch or in a meeting. At one point he left my solicitor on hold for 1 and a half hours! 1 AND A HALF HOURS! then he had the gaul to say he'd tried to call them back (outside of their business hours by the way) but they were unavailable!

At several points through this extremely stressful process Michael Jennings gave 3 different, and often contradicting, pieces of information to the Buyer, Purple Bricks and my solicitors. There were times when I had to pass information to the buyer that I had got from Purple Bricks just to make sure she had the right information. Essentially Michael Jennings did not communicate with his client meaning that it was incredibly difficult to make any progress. As you can imagine this lead to a huge amount of stress, anxiety and uncertainty about the sale.

Michael Jennings also kept misplacing documents that had been sent to him by my solicitors, the lease was requested at least 3 times, it was sent each and every time. and each time he was adamant that it hadn't been sent. Even when I had answered queries they claimed not to have received it. It also took over a week for him to confirm that he had received another document, all the while telling the buyer that my solicitors were at fault and hadn't sent over the documents (they had) My solicitors, at this point, were incredulous at his incompetence.

Even as we were trying to bring the process to a close Michael Jennings was asking my buyer for certified ID and proof of gifted deposit, both of which should have been done much earlier in the process and just served to cause further delays.

The real kicker was the fact that they forced us into a position where we would need to exchange and complete on the same day or we would need to wait until January to complete and this was not an option! This meant that we had to book removals and pay deposit on rented accommodation without any guarantee that the sale was going through! As it happens Michael Jennings didn't request the buyers deposit until the day of exchange/completion! meaning that we didn't actually complete on that day (Friday) meaning that we had to wait the weekend and until almost 3pm on Monday afternoon in order to complete.

In summary I found Gorvins and Michael Jennings to be untrustworthy, untruthful and to have absolutely no interest in completing this process. If it hadn't have been for the multiple daily calls to Purple bricks and my solicitors then I dread to think what might have happened (or not happened). AVOID THEM LIKE THE PLAGUE.

Should they read this I will say that I would welcome any contact from them and fully intend to launch a formal complaint.

Review of Gorvins Solicitors by Francesca

How can I describe my experience with Gorvins? Nothing less than Shambolic! We originally went with them as quickly obtained a reasonable quote for a great sales person at the firm and reading the 5-star reviews on line thought we were in good hands. Getting the quote quickly was the only 5-star service we received.
We were informed that the purchase would take 6 to 8 weeks to go through as it was a new build already completed with no chain. Little did we know at the time that this timescale was completely unrealistic for Gorvins as they ‘had too much work on’
The seller’s solicitor was brilliant getting a draft copy of the contract over in little under 2 weeks which should have made the process smoother. However, after being passed to 4 different solicitors we where finally told 6 weeks in that Gorvins would review the contract and send questions. We had secured an advantageous price on the property due to agreeing to move fast and therefore the only reason Gorvins acted at this point was because the seller was threatening to pull out.
Post the questions being raised the level of service went from bad to worse. We were told that we were in the final stages of the contract and would be ready to complete very soon, on this information from our solicitor we handed in our notice on our rented accommodation, thinking we would have an overlap of a couple of weeks.
This is where all communication stopped, we rang the solicitor 3 or four times a day to try and get an update, with no success. There were always in a meeting, on the phone or on a two-hour lunch. We had no replies to emails apart from to receive our solicitors out of office who we hadn’t been told had gone on annual leave for 2 weeks. During the next month we were passed to 3 more solicitors who each took on average 3 to 4 days to review the file. At this point we were now homeless and had to move into a hotel.
I don’t think the flaws of this company are down to the individual solicitors, I genuinely think they are firefighting as Gorvins take on too much work. They must have client like myself in frustrated and untenable situations all the time and therefore hate answering the phone.
In the end we took matters into our own hands and any documents that were required form the third-party solicitor or from the mortgage company we sourced ourselves and sent them directly to Gorvins by courier if necessary, incurring a great deal more expense. Gorvins were on the cheaper end of the scale but when we add together hotel costs, dog kennel fees, storage for furniture and all the hours we spent everyday on the phone doing their job for them, they cost us more than the most expensive quote
Use them at your peril

Felt like we were in safe hands throughout the house sale and purchase processes. It was clear Gorvins were on our side and paying great attention to any small but vital details. Thoroughly professional staff who know their game but are totally approachable and pleasant to deal with.

I used Gorvins to buy my house. I found them on a solicitor's comparison site and I got a really good discount which is really great, but also made me slightly sceptical. I had no need to be nervous, they were brilliant and I can't recommend them highly enough. Every solicitor that I had assigned to my case (max 3 as it progressed through the process) was great and provided proactive updates without me having to chase. Someone said to me as I started this purchase process that all conveyancing solicitors are a nightmare, but not Gorvins! Great service and experience.

Used Gorvins when selling my house. Fantastic service from start to finish. Robert Johnson & Kerry Sharples were terrific in handling the case. Very pro-active and made things simple and straightforward, ensuring the sale completed very quickly and well ahead of expectations. Could not recommend highly enough.

I have had a number of experiences with solicitors in the past when selling properties but Gorvins by far have been the most proactive, communicative and responsive firm I have ever used. I won't be going anywhere else in future and would recommend them to anyone. Sonia & Kiran were particular stars but I'm sure all the team would do a great job.

Review of Gorvins Solicitors by Richy Batey
5 06/06/2018 Richy Batey

Sonia was an absolute star for us. A re-mortgage is an arduous task at the best of times but Sonia's regular and timely updates and speedy responses to every question posed made the whole thing a far more acceptable experience than expected. In handing over to Kiran the excellent service continued and communications were prompt and extremely helpful. Thank you Gorvins but in particular, thank you Sonia.

I have recently completed 3 re-mortgages using Gorvins Solicitors. This was potentially a difficult and stressful process. However, Gorvins have ensured this has not been the case. It has in fact been very simple and straight forward. This is largely due to the excellent communication from the staff, notably Sonia Bains who have kept me informed at every stage. I would have no hesitation in recommending Gorvins Solicitors for this type of work.

Review of Gorvins Solicitors by Tracy Coffey
5 26/04/2018 Tracy Coffey

We have used Kerry at Gorvins for the sale and purchase of three properties, she is thorough, tenacious and ultimately professional. We recently sold my late mother in-laws home and decided to downsize and sell our home too. Kerry handled the sale of both properties and the purchase of our new home. There were times when I though that it would never happen and as this is only our 3rd house purchase in 40 years, to say we were rusty is an understatement. Kerry was immensely patient explained everything along the way, co-ordinated appropriate chase's with our daughter who is an estate agent and got the job done. She gave us good advise and explained the risk of completing on our sale without exchanging on our ongoing purchase and we appreciated that she had our best interest at heart. We finally move into our new house today and we cant thank Kerry and her team enough for their support and hard work. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Tracy and Mark Coffey

Very happy with the service I have received from Gorvins. As a first time buyer and therefore unfamiliar with the process, every major step was explained clearly.

Review of Gorvins Solicitors by Graham Calvert
5 27/03/2018 Graham Calvert

Used Gorvins to right to buy the council flat I was living in and their quote was one of the cheapest less than half the price of similar companies. The process turned out to be a bit slower than expected but can blame council delays and Gorvins being very solicitous and careful in their dealings over some important details. Came in cheaper than their quote in the end. The conveyancing passed through various hands in its progress and I was kept informed at each handover and at all stages with end of week emails during the long gaps, and the odd phone call only where absolutely necessary. Suited me as I am fairly patient and don't need lots of calls. Very friendly and helpful, can recommend.

Review of Gorvins Solicitors by Rebekah Wilkins
5 20/03/2018 Rebekah Wilkins

Very Happy. We bought a property (we were not in a chain has we had previously sold our property) but that didn't make it any less stressful. On saying it was stressful none of this was due to the solicitors. We were always able to get hold of people or they called / emailed us back within 24 hours (which is a really big plus). The language used meant we always understood what was going on and didn't have to ask for much clarification. There were no delays from our solicitors we never had to chase them up (which is the first time I have had this when buying and selling). Gorvins were not the cheapest but the fee was not unreasonable at all and certainly value for money. Would use again and recommend.

Review of Gorvins Solicitors by Smi33y
5 13/03/2018 Smi33y

Very efficient and professional at all times.
Our house sale and purchase has recently been handled by Gorvins Solicitors. We were assigned a contact name as soon as we instructed their services. I found the whole process to be very efficient and the work progressed at a good pace. We promptly received paperwork, search results, replies to any questions and queries. As the conveyancing progressed other team members handled to case, but we were kept informed who to make contact with. Our final conveyancer, Kathryn, worked very hard to keep the momentum going with the other parties involved as an unforeseen delay further down the chain occurred.
I would recommend Gorvins Solicitors and would certainly used them again.

Review of Gorvins Solicitors by Denise James

I was a little concerned about using solicitors who were based 100’s of miles from my home however they had been recommended so I decided to go with them. A good decision, I was kept well informed from start to finish and dealt with in a professional yet friendly way. Kiran was particularly reassuring and helpful. Should I need any conveyancing in the future I wouldn’t hesitate to come back.

The service offered to me by the conveyancing team at Gorvins Solicitors was very good – from the first person who handled my case from the start of the purchase process to the last person who handled its completion. There was a small delay on the completion which was mostly by the seller and I had to step in to speed things up so that I did not miss the mortgage offer expiry date. However, Gorvins solicitors conveyancing team worked efficiently and kept me updated on every step of the process, and were available to answer any questions I had. I would surely use Gorvins Solicitors again in the future and definitely recommend them to anyone.

Following an initial upset regarding the level of communication, which I felt was fairly poor, Gorvins have since provided an excellent service. I received regular updates together with timely communications from my Conveyancing Administrator Kathryn O'Rourke. Kathryn was always incredibly helpful and polite as well as sincere. She remained supportive, positive and communicative throughout what turned out to be quite a lengthy and frustrating process. Thank you.

I have worked with David Walton on a professional basis for many years and have always found him to be reliable, reasonable, very balanced and knowledgeable. So when I had a personal issue relating to work I didn't hesitate to call David as I trusted him and knew he'd do a good job - which he did. I have already recommended him to colleagues and they have found him to be the same. If you need good advice from a friendly professional - call David and his team.

I went with Gorvins for selling my house because they had the best quoted price, but at the end they added more expenses (not clear) on the price and it ended up to be bit expensive. Not all throughout the process I manage to have transparent information and also to reach the person I wanted to speak with. The last part of the process was much easier and better but still not explained why I did get a higher price.

Gorvins helped me successfully remortgage recently. They were very speedy in moving things along and very polite and helpful every time I contacted them. A point of potential improvement is that they can email PDF versions of the paper forms which they post. This could speed up and simplify the remortgaging process even more. This is a minor thing, however, and I was quite happy with Gorvins' work.

I've just bought my first house and used Gorvins for the conveyancing as they quoted the best price and had the best reviews in the lower price range on the comparison site. Being a first time buyer, I had no idea about the process and was a bit in the dark. Their communication could've been better & it would've been a lot less stressful. Overall they got the job done at a fair price.

I've just bought my first house and used Gorvins for the conveyancing as they quoted the best price and had the best reviews in the lower price range on the comparison site. Being a first time buyer, I had no idea about the process, I expected there to be good communication from Gorvins regarding what to do next. My case was passed through 3 different people during the process. I had to chase for updates when I hadn't heard from anyone for a while to be told they were waiting for me to do stuff I had no idea I had to do. I would not recommend using Gorvins if you're a first time buyer - I could have exchanged and completed weeks ago if there was better communication.

Review of Gorvins Solicitors by Lindsay Allan
2 10/11/2017 Lindsay Allan

We went with Gorvins for our house purchase because they had the best quoted price, but wish that we had paid more for someone more competent. We had to constantly chase for updates as we were given no information proactively, our case was passed to multiple different people, none of which we were ever able to get hold of on the phone as they were always 'in a meeting'. We ended up doing most of the work for them in terms of chasing the seller's solicitors via the estate agents. I wouldn't recommend at all for first time buyers - we were kept in the dark about what was expected from us and any next steps, right up until the day before completion.

Joseph and Gorvins were reasonably priced and fulfilled our needs in terms of purchasing our first house. We were first time buyers so needed a bit of 'hand-holding', Joseph always explained things clearly so we knew what we needed to do. He was polite and friendly over email and on the phone. I would have perhaps liked more communication with Joseph, especially towards exchange and completion, as I sometimes didn't know what was going on and was of course eager for news. However, I appreciate it was busy in the office. All in all it was a positive experience.

Kerry Sharples acted on both our sale and purchase recently and she was absolutely wonderful! She was always on hand to answer my questions and queries (no matter how stupid they were!) and if I couldn’t get hold of her, she returned my calls and/or emails promptly. A stark contrast from the last solicitor I used at a different firm!!
Kerry always communicated with me in a friendly and professional manner and most importantly, in a way I could understand (as somebody with little/no legal knowledge). Thank you so much for your help Kerry!

Review of Gorvins Solicitors by Michael O'Brien

Gorvins solicitors were excellent in the sale of our house and purchase of our new home. Sonia started the process and was very quick to respond to us and get the sale and purchase moving. She was also very approachable. Tanzeela was brilliant, really efficient and she took the time to explain the legal processes to us so we could fully understand what was happening at every point. Kerry was also excellent. She took over at the end when our buyer pulled out. She ensured that we were supported to purchase our new home and have the old one up for sale. We would have given Gorvins 5 starts without hesitation had it not been for Matthew Moss. We feel that his communication and level of service was not on par with the other solicitors in this process. We would not hesitate to use this company again in the future and would recommend them to anyone.

Great service from Gorvins for the purchase of our property, I was a little sketchy at first as the first contact I was addressed by 3 different names via e-mail (none were correct) by the Conveyancing Manager. However, as soon as my case was passed on to one of the Conveyancing Administrators (KO) our purchase went as smooth as it could possibly go. Kathryn was an absolute pleasure to deal with and perfectly explained everything in a manner the non solicitors could understand. She was extremely understanding and answered our e-mails in a ridiculously prompt fashion (even at weekends at silly o'clock). If I ever had to go through purchasing a property again I would have no hesitation in using Gorvins again especially if Kathryn could deal with our case.

I was referred to Gorvins by a very good friend of mine who is a solicitor in another legal field. I was lucky enough to have been referred over to Kerry Sharples who I found professional, clear, concise and honest at all times. I was always in the loop and updated as to progress etc, despite there being several hold ups from the buyers' end and a management company. The following purchase has been dealt with in exactly the same manner. Highly recommend!

Gorvins were on the Panel List of my Mortgage Provider. Overall the Service I received met my expectations; the people I dealt with genuinely cared about my property purchase and the time constraints I needed to meet. They were pragmatic with solutions to our issues/questions as Sellers and knew when best to call and talk; and when to use email. Overall communication and business processes were very good and mostly joined-up. More than happy to Recommend on the Buying-side of Conveyancing (which is what this Review and our Experience covers).

I would highly recommend this company. I had Omar Hadi who worked on the sale of my property. He was absolutely amazing and I couldn't have asked for anything more from a solicitor. He worked extremely hard, he was very professional, he always kept me informed at every step of the way. There was some points of the sale that were challenging and he thought outside of the box to create a solution and resolved every situation/problem quickly and professionally. He was very friendly and approachable at all times with quick responses to emails and calls. He is definitely a asset to Gorvins Solicitors. And I would strongly recommend anyone looking for a solicitor to use Gorvins. Thank you guys for helping me sell my flat.

I originally had posted a negative review but have decided to retract this following the service I later received from Lorraine regarding a complaint i'd made about one of her junior staff members loosing paperwork and trying to pass the buck to me. Lorraine was great and dealt with the matter immediately, I now have everything tied up and I'm a happy customer!

Overall the service I received from Gorvins was good for the purchase of my first property. Scarlett is a superstar, she is very friendly and always responsive to emails and calls and carried this process along during a really busy time for the property market and really stressful time for me.

I'm happy that I now have everything sorted and can call this place officially my own! Thank you!

I would recommend Gorvins Solicitors without hesitation!

Danielle Ayres dealt with an employment issue on my behalf and the results were fantastic. Danielle communicated with me throughout the process and went above and beyond to help me with my case. Everything was explained to me from the outset and any questions I had were answered swiftly.

Thanks you very much for all of your help. They really are the best at what they do!

I have just sold and bought using Gorvins. Kerry Sharples was amazing from start to finish. She always updated me (before I requested an update) and exceeded expectations in terms of both customer service and the time frame it was all completed. Kerry went on holiday for a week whilst the transaction was going through which is always a worry but the file was passed too a gentleman called Omar and he was just as efficient and helpful. HIGHLY recommend. Thank you for all your help Kerry & Omar.

At first I was a little concerned with the remoteness and doing everything online / via email but I have to say I was pleasantly surprised. In particular one guy stood out, Adam Reed in completions is superb! If you have him handling your case you are in safe hands. Changed my view of the whole process and kept me sane during a very difficult house purchase. First class service!

I have generally found the service to be impersonal and their work not particularly diligent. I mean they didn’t even spot that my name was spelt incorrectly in 2 places on the lease! I’m not convinced they have taken the required care to look over the paperwork properly before sending it to me so I may have to pay for a second review from another solicitor. I don’t think I would use Gorvins again in the future.

Our house purchases and sale was handled expertly by Gorvins Solicitors. Kirsty Sparham looked after us at the contract exchange and completion stages, whilst our process was fairly long drawn (no fault of our own or Gorvins) Kirsty worked extremely hard to ensure completion (at one stage it was teetering on the brink!). Kirsty handled our anxiety with a lot of grace and professionalism. In the end it all came together. Thanks to Kirsty and The team at Gorvins.
Will definitely recommend!

Omar worked so hard for us to get our home. We had a nightmare buyer, but he did his best to complete the sale! Sense of humour and seems like pro!
Thankyou
