We had an absolutely brilliant experience with MW Solicitors in Worthing, with the wonderful Lindsay handling everything for both the sale of our old property, and purchase of our new one. We had a lot of hurdles to get through on both accounts but Lindsay was helpful, patient and supportive throughout, happy to answer any question we might have - no matter how obvious the answer might have been! When she told us she was on annual leave on both our completion dates, we weren't concerned in the slightest - Laura and Michelle stepped in and kept us regularly informed and up-to-date. The whole firm have been brilliant but special thanks do go to Lindsay - who I have already recommended to a friend!

We purchased our first house through MW Solicitors which went through without incident. That's the good news. Upon completion we were charged over a thousand pounds more than quoted (£1400) for our conveyancing fees which was very confusing as on the face of it the sale which involved us as FTB's and no onward chain happened without incident. We were then told about a number of additional fees and charges which were not included on our original quotation: The sum of £195.00 + VAT has been added in respect of your gifted deposit. o The sum of £150.00 + VAT has been added in respect of acting for your mortgage lender. o The sum of £95.00 + VAT has been added in respect of our charges in preparing and completing the Stamp Duty Land Tax. o The sum of £35.00 + VAT has been added as this is our standard fee in respect of pre-completion searches including bankruptcy and land registry searches. o As per the estimate, the Financial Transaction Fees are charged at a maximum of £45.00 + VAT for each transfer out Etc. Etc. McMillan Williams sent a lot of paperwork some of which would have been long winded explanations of increased and additional fees but when you are in the midst of moving, having a job and life/work pressures - who has the time to go through countless additional letters as well as the contracts and everything else. We didn't, we trusted our instructed solicitor (more fool us.) especially as we had a quotation in writing. All of the above should have been included on the original quotation so we could have found the best solicitor at the best price but the reality is you have to pay once you are about to complete (get out the credit cards). Instead we have been left feeling misled... and skint. I would not recommend or use MW Solicitors again. We would only use fixed fee solicitor moving forward and have learnt a big lesson.

Would definitely recommend MWSL if you’re moving house. Our solicitor James worked efficiently and very thoroughly so ensure a painless purchase! He explained every stage of the process to us so we understood every step which was valuable to us as first time buyers. From offer to completion in 4 and a half weeks - we’re thrilled! Thank you.

Michelle Kingshott and the team at Mcmillian Williams were great throughout the whole process. They provided a competitive quote which ended up being less that than the initial figure which really helped. Very reasonable to speak with. I would highly recommend them when buying you next home as everything was handled smoothly and professionally. Thanks for your support with getting us our first home.

Awful company. Our purchase went abortive and McMillan Charged extra fees which were never mentioned in the terms and conditions. McMillan never responded to our emails and instead hired a debt collector firm who harrases us several times a week to pay an invoice which we have queried with McMillan. We emailed McMillan several times over a period of 6 months as we are still querying the amount they say is due and they continue to ignore all our correspondence. This is not a firm we would recommend to anyone. My colleague is 78 years old and the stress McMillan have put on my colleague is completely unnecessary.
