Their solicitor yes. Then about 4-5 months ago they told me their solicitor is changed. Now there is a different solicitor. I have the details for both solicitors.
Well I paid for the solicitor, but I guess this is the land investment company's solicitor taking the documents from them to register with the ownership with Land Registry.
I was in touch with the previous solicitor but they said they are not taking care of this work anymore and they gave the details for the new solicitor.
Did you have your own solicitors? Did you get undertaking from the sellers solicitors to give you the transfer deed on completion/payment?
Ignore that fact that there are now new solicitors. Was there a contract?
No. I think I paid for their solicitor fees.
We signed a contract at the beginning of between me and their company.
I don't understand what you mean by "Did you get undertaking from the sellers solicitors to give you the transfer deed on completion/payment?"
It is normal conveyancing procedure. Do you mean you dont know if you had solicitor yourself or not or did you do it all yourself?
A solicitor would have got an undertaking to let you have the transfer deed on payment.
Write to the solicitors telling them that unless they let you have the Transfer Deed by return, you will issue legal proceedings for a court order for specific performance of the contract (let you have the transfer deed).
Remember that you then have to do Stamp Duty Land Tax return and then register the transfer at Land Registry.

For some reason which I cannot quite figure out, you have re-listed the question.
