Very happy with the efficiency and professionalism MW Solicitors team dealt with the purchase of my new property. Ruben was always available to clarify any questions we had in a prompt way and made it very straightforward for us from beginning to end, completing the purchase in fast turnaround time.
I would highly recommend this company for any property transaction.
Used MW Solicitors for house purchase and I’d have given 5* as they were generally good on the legal side but not so good when it came to providing us with the final statement on completion. Ended up having to find an unexpected £2.5k+ extra when we were already stretched to the max as they were miles out with the estimate and didn’t keep us informed when certain things increased in cost.
They also made a number of mistakes with the final statement which meant I ended up having to thoroughly check every last detail.
To outline the errors which in my opinion are fairly significant:
1. Original statement had the wrong deposit amount and was out by £7200 as a result. I think we were overcharged on the original invoice for the deposit and then they put the correct amount on the final statement. It’s a good job I realised, felt a bit like they were trying to pull a fast one!
2. We were overcharged for the expedited completion fee by £54 in the first instance.
3. The estimate and final statement was significantly out leaving us to find an £2.5k + extra. Look out for this as the estimate they provide you with at the beginning is completely inaccurate! They also didn’t keep us updated when costs, such as land registry fees, increased.
Furthermore, stipulations of our conditions between exchange and completion were not communicated with the other side and didn’t get done as a result.
Ruben Perin and Thomas Jones looked after my case and made the whole process easier from start to finish.
As a first time buyer I needed a lot of guidance and a challenging seller made the process even more difficult. MW always faced up to the challenge, thinking of creative ways to deal with the issues and clearly communicating throughout. Thomas was particularly helpful in guiding me through what each part of the process meant.
I highly recommend MW.
