Did the solicitors give any reason for doing this?
no none really.
I am so upset.
I can understand why you are upset, unless there is a good reason why they had to remove these items quickly, such as a flood at the house and you were out of town, they simply could have asked you to do this
I would firstly write to the solicitor concerned asking for an explanation saying that you would have been happy to remove the items had they asked and that you have no intention of paying for the removal of the items. If you do not get a satisfactory response write again to the senior partner of the firm making a formal complaint.
In the absence of a good explanation this smacks of the solicitors simply doing something unnecessary so they can bill for it
I hope this helps. If I have missed something please reply
