Based on my experience, I do NOT recommend Stirling Ackroyd Legal. We were not satisfied by the poor communication, significant delay to answer enquiries and sometimes absence of answer. In my view, the solicitor who handled my case was incompetent and did not meet the standards expected from a law firm. Our treatment was appalling and the mistakes they made were shocking. Do yourself a favour: avoid these solicitors!

Review of Stirling Ackroyd Legal by Maureen Ruddy

Absolutely shocking conveyancing service.

My solicitor did not return my calls and took, on average, a 10 days to reply to my emails. The solicitor then began exchange negotiations without consulting me regarding dates. It has been 7 months since I moved into my new property and I am still awaiting on Stirling Ackroyd completing the necessary work to register me as the proprietor. I have had no response to emails since August. Finally, the invoicing was incorrect and I am still awaiting a refund.

Incredibly disappointed by the service we received. Totally ignored as clients, no regard for us whatsoever. No one ever called back, emails went answered, I had to call ten times a day to try to catch the right person at just the right time. As first time buyers we were hoping for a solicitor to help hold our hands through the purchasing experience and instead we had no less than five changes in staff - NONE of which were communicated to us directly. Appalling. The purchase was completed but very delayed and stressful due to their failings. The 'aftercare' was ridiculous - two months to receive simple documents which were only sent after I complained.

Thanks again!

I had the misfortune of my buyer instructing this company. They delayed the exchange by 6 weeks due to not responding to emails or calls from my agent or solicitor. They wanted details on how to extend the lease on my freehold property for example.

Avoid!!

Thank you to the guys at Sterling Ackroyd Legal. I was purchasing my first business and the team made the situation seem like a walk in the park. No hassle, no stress. Prompt updates to me and everything flowed so smoothly. Special thanks to Tamseel for everything.

As first time buyers we had no idea about the whole conveyancing process but James explained the whole process in great detail and answered any questions we had patiently. Other than owning a house I can say I walked away with a lot of insight on how the whole process works. I did not expect the process to go so smoothly within 8 weeks from offer to completion, and I have Stirling Ackroyd and James to thank for.

Absolutely Shocking- What should have been a simple no chain house move turned out to be a complete nightmare thanks to these cowboy solicitors. Our solicitor was imcompent in her role delaying the whole thing months longer than it should have taken .We received confidential information about other people cases with no apology. They NEVER return your call and they are NEVER available to speak to. Even after 3 months of living in our flat we are getting letters saying we aren’t registered with the land registry, or that only one of us is registered with the management company who own the flat. Our original solicitor who no longer works there ( count yourself lucky she’s probably been sacked) and we have a new lady in charge of our case. It seems like they train everyone the same though as already she has said she would call us back when we've raised these complaints and she fails to do so.
To summaries have no idea how a company can run like this lot do. Stay away. Far away

Stirling Ackroyd were recommended by family & friends. They could schedule in an appointment promptly. Extremely helpful, professional, experienced & knowledgeable when it came to my case. When visiting the office, the atmosphere & the way I was greeted made me feel relaxed. My case was dealt with empathy & compassion which made me feel at ease in discussing my case openly.
Based on my personal positive experience I would highly recommend this firm.

House Purchase with Stirling Ackroyd was a bit of a farce to be honest, very slow at times, i found myself chasing on a daily basis on some occasions.

Not once did i speak to the solicitor in charge of the case - Aminah Bokhari, on every occasion she was incapable of taking any calls from me, she never replied to one email i sent her (and im not exaggerating!!!). All communication was via another member of her team Priyanka (*who has now left) who, at times was very unorganised, which caused multiple problems later on.

Now I have completed i am still waiting for the Land registry documents, i have sent 4 emails so far to Aminah - still, no reply! for a partner of the firm i would not recommend her to anyone, she is useless!!!

I think a couple of people who have given bad reviews have also said other 5 star reviews could be fake, i think the same too. notice any 5 star reviewer has made no other reviews for any other company's, looks like they paid for the 5 stars they say they have!

Another side note..... If you chose to go through 'The Conveyancing Network' comparison site, be aware the £150 upfront fee they charge (that you get told will be taken off the bill at time of payment to the solicitors) does not get taken off, so be aware!!! I ended up paying a further £200 more in fees for a simple freehold property - and invoices do not get itemised - even when you ask!

Not impressed, especially with the solicitor.

After reading all their reviews, I gave them a call. Spoke to Imadul Chowdhury, Paralegal in New Homes Department, who told me how professional the company is and how he is going to stay on top of my case. Once i confirmed that I would like to proceed with them he was delighted and passed over to his colleague Tamsil to take my details. That guy could hardly hear properly and made mistakes in taking my details. The paper work never followed through. Called them 8 times on 11th May 2017, and still no response, just excuses that their email system had issues. Didnt call back, no communication. When my Flat seller called them, they declined even knowing me. I will recommend all to stay away from these unprofessional legal experts.

I just wanted to say a huge thank you to Stirling Ackroyd Legal for helping me with the sale of my property.

I have used other conveyancing firms before but the team at Stirling Ackroyd Legal always kept me up to date with everything that was happening and have been very professional from start to finish.

The sale went through smoothly thanks to the help of Emon & Hannah who were always on hand to answer any questions I may have had throughout the process.

I will use Stirling Ackroyd Legal again for any future sales or purchases, and I will be recommending them to my colleagues that need a good conveyancing firm.

Sterling Ackroyd Lagal are one of the worst group of solicitors I ever come across specialty Aminah Bokhari & Priyanka Kalhan they are noting but headache and you will PAY more money the agreed solicitor frees. they will make you pay their mistakes at the critical time of the process. 3 months on still not complete not answering emails or calls. CEO is "no use" and he don't want to speak to you. PLEASE DON'T USE THIS COMPANY.

As an investor I have used a number of city firms over the years and have been very pleased with the service. However, I always tend to use new companies from time to time and when I became aware of SAL I thought why not give them some of my business. We all know that in property investing you often come across some unforeseen situations which could delay any acquisition, what really impressed me with this firm is that they kept me well informed with their attention to details and professional attitude. Highly recommend!

Michele Hosey from Stirling Ackroyd Legal represented us on the purchase of our first house. Although in the end we did not go ahead with the sale I found the company and team very professional, from day one they explained the process, put us to ease regarding the procedure and were very friendly.

In fact when I visited the office the CEO himself popped over for a chat and gave us some advise, which was very nice. I was also given a full refund of the money I had paid, no questions asked! I would definitely use the company again.

Recently bought a house through Stirling Ackroyd and I must say I was very impressed. A big thank you to Michele Hosey who completely took all the stress out of the whole ordeal. We were on a very strict time scale for the whole process and Michele's persistence and professionalism made it happen. The communication was fantastic throughout and without her commitment we would have never been in our house on time.

Thoroughly recommend.

Stirling Ackroyd Legal Q&A

Stirling Ackroyd Legal Q&A

What do you love most about your job?

The best part of my job is client satisfaction. Getting good feedback at the conclusion of a case is the highlight of the work we do.
Other than that, it is always interesting when we get a complex case on board and get to use our legal know-how to decode the papers and get the right outcome for our client.

What inspired you to start your own business?

Our CEO is a solicitor who has had an interest in property for a long number of years. He acquired a property law firm that had been in existence since 1985 and brought it under the Stirling Ackroyd Legal banner in March 2016.
As an individual who has been interested in property throughout his career, it was a natural step to bring together his two biggest passions, namely the law and property. Central to his ethos is providing a bespoke service for each client, having noted that the property law market is saturated with 'conveyancing factories' who have lost the skills of client care and communication.

Why should our clients choose you?

If clients are looking for assistance with a property matter, we are a boutique firm set up entirely for their benefit. We are communicative and responsive to client needs and at the same time we are upfront about costs and timescales, with estimates provided on a case-by-case basis.
