Pulled it out the bag in the end.

Recommended coffin mew as panel solicitors by vivid, expecting good things as family had used them in past. There was a severe lack of communication overall and I never spoke to my own solicitor on the phone and I was constantly chasing with no response.
Felt frustrated and stressed overall as I was the customer paying a fee for the service and didn't feel like I was being kept informed at all.
I must note however that despite delays in getting the correct contract out and providing updates, Rosie Jarvis who ended up dealing with my case was very helpful and was the only one to keep me informed. There was also a very helpful receptionist who I must have left my mobile number with 10 times for my call to be returned.
Overall it started off well with paperwork and instruction etc., but disappointed towards the end when I was pretty much just getting ignored.

We moved house last December and Salih was extremely helpful in making sure a tricky transaction went as smoothly as possible. I've needed extra documentation and help since the move and he's always happy to help. I've had experience of dealing with other firms who deliver the complete opposite, so I highly recommend you choose Coffin Mew! Thanks again

Recently used Coffin Mew to purchase a flat and can not recommend them enough, in particular Rafiq Sumra. Nothing was too much trouble for him. He kept me completely informed at every stage and was readily available to answer any questions that arose. Fantastic service. Thank you.

As a local estate agent, finding a trusted solicitor to work on behalf of clients can be difficult. Jodie Williams and the rest of the conveyancing team at Coffin Mew have been incredibly helpful throughout the time I've been working alongside them - can't recommend highly enough.
