Lazy and Rude


We dealt with Claire North and Rachel Jenner for the sale of our property and found them extremely un proffesional. They were extremely lazy and rude throughout the process. We were constantly chasing them for news on updates and transfer of monies for exchange to the point we nearly missed exchange date.

Whenever we called they were very condescending and rude and avoided questions on numerous occasions.

This solicitor came recommended but we certainly WILL NOT be recommending them. I know a few people on the same estate that have had the same issues.

if you end up going to this "law firm" please be cautious! Claire is very unprofessional, does not read case files on time, does not adhere to call backs, sends 84 pages of paperwork, asks you to read them within 45 minutes of your appointment time & is baffled when you say no (because we can all read a 84 page document with an average read time of 35 seconds per page)
Even now... after completion of the case, the paperwork sent to the other solicitors is wrong & missing bits. Not worth the money 7 certainly not worth the stress. AVOID!!!

We used Sills & Betteridge Gainsborough for conveyancing, absolutely brilliant service, way better than any of the online firms. Claire North and her team were professional, courteous and very responsive from start to finish.
