The Buyer paid the full price, and moved into the flat on 28thg February last year, as far as I am concerned the property is no longer anything to do with me, sadly, this appears not to be the case. The solicitor my buyer used was an internet company, he had a lot of problems with them during the whole process, we had agreed the sale on 17th Feb 2012, it took until 28th Feb 2013 for the sale to complete. On the occasions he rang them he was told several times that the person dealing with him had left and it had passed to someone else. I was told that he contact the for their complaints procedure, he followed that, was then contacted by a man who was supposed to be a senior partner, was told this man would sort everything out, after more time had passed he contacted them again and it was a lady who was dealing with it, she was the person to get everything supposedly finalised.
I am not quite sure if you are getting my points here, so far I am paying £33 for the things I knew. What I am trying to find out is, do I have to pay my solicitor for sorting this out when it was neither my fault or his, that the on line solicitor could not do his job right. The buyer knows he has to pay the bill but the management company do not recognise him as the owner of the flat because after a year my name is XXXXX XXXXX the land registry. He has tried ringing to pay the bill but they won't discuss the matter with him. Who is paying the solicitor brought in to sort out the mess the buyers on line solicitor made. Am I entitled to recompense for the emotional and financial stress I have had to suffer. I would also like to point out this is a one off time that I will be using this site, I do not want to pay a monthly fee. I had put Law Society Ombudsman in the search engine, your ad popped up, I asked a question I was asked for £33, which I thought was fair enough as you were going to answer my questions for me, once I sent the question I am now badgered being asked for £33 or £43, I don't need monthly advice thanks, XXXXX XXXXX only prepared to pay the £33 that has been paid and I would like proper answers to my questions please.
