Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first?
Why do you think that this is a risky method for your son?
Has the TR1 been prepared?
Has he asked his ex if she is willing to accept this
There are two problems I am afraid
The first is that in fact a Bankers Draft is NOT cleared funds and accordingly he cannot exchange it for the documentation in any event.
The second is that the only person who can insist that the Bankers Draft is accepted (subject to the above) is his ex - and of course he
cannot ask her to do so.
As her solicitor of record then her solicitors can insist that payment is made to them - and will not release the documentation until the funds are cleared.
Oh your son has real concerns about the actions of the solicitor then he can arrange the payment and wait in the offices until the payment is received and collect the documents then
Please ask if you need further details
