Thanks for your enquiry.
Either party is free to pull out of the deal at any time before the respective Solicitors agree to date and complete the Deed and the Utility Company's Solicitors sends the funds.
So, you are not too late to pull out/re-negotiate provided you get on the phone/email your Solicitor first thing Monday to tell him so.
I hope this assists.
Hi there, thank you for your reply. It was on Monday last week I gave consent to complete. I am also worried that I have effectively signed and delivered anyway even if no consideration has been passed. I am worried!
Are you sure that your Solicitor hasn't already completed? (He should of course phoned/notified you of completion if that was the case)
I look forward to hearing from you if need be, but provided completion has not indeed already taken place, you are still very much free to halt proceedings even if you have signed the Deed, in that the Deed only becomes legally binding once both sets of Solicitors have agreed to date the Deed and the Utility Company's Solicitor sends the appropriate funds.
I hope you have been able to resolve matters today. Please let me know if I can be of any further assistance.
