Having had a nightmare experience with the conveyencer we used when we bought our flat a few years ago, we are trying to find a new one. Can anyone recommend a good solicitor experienced in buying and selling leasehold flats in london who charges a fixed fee.
Many thanks

I'm currently using Convey Law (solicitor - Cheryl Head) and they are very good. Flat fee but are based out of Newport, Wales however the location hasn't been an issue so far

I've used Hella Jacobsen (Jacobson & Co). Very impressed with them and have recommended them to others. Based out of West London

Thanks both of you. Im a bit hesitant to use Convey Law due to mixed web reviews and the fact our nightmare was caused by a similarly large online conveyancing co (bad of me to tar all of them with the same brush but once bitten...).

Unless anyone else makes a bid it may well be Hella who gets our business...

Before my transaction fell through (lender downvaluation), I was working with "The partnership", they are based in Guilford but have an office in London Waterloo. They were very good in communicating with me. Luckily they had the no-move/no-charge policy, so despite my disappointing experience I had to pay them just the expenses. Whenever I'll find the right place, I'll go with them again.

Thanks to everyone. I have just had a good coversation with the Partnership. Will let my partner make the final decision form the 3 suggestions above and will feedback our experience with whomever we choose for future vendors/ purchasers
