Thank you for reporting your concerns to us about solicitors.
We are now taking the time to carefully assess these, and we will also look at the regulatory information we may already hold to decide what we need to do next.
We will respond to you within the next 15-20 working days, sooner if we identify urgent problems that need our immediate response.
If we cannot help with your concerns, we will point you in the right direction.
Are we the right organisation?
We want you to raise your concern with the right people. Sometimes that is us. But other organisations may be best placed to help.
For example, if you have concerns about the professional service you have received from your solicitor, the right organisation to help is the Legal Ombudsman. Unlike us, it has powers to tell your solicitor to put things right, to pay compensation to you or reduce your solicitor’s bill if it finds there has been poor service. More information about the Legal Ombudsman and how to make a complaint can be found at https://www.legalombudsman.org.uk/
