Alex Watts : Hello my name is XXXXX XXXXX I will help you with this. Please note that I am a working Solicitor and may be on and offline as I have to attend Court and meet with clients, even at weekends. As such you may not get an instant response when you reply, but rest assured I will be giving your question my immediate attention upon return You do not need to wait here as you will get an email when I reply.
Alex Watts : Yes an offer can be withdrawn at any time.
Alex Watts : They can offer a lower amount and say it is full and final settlement, but can withdraw it at any time.
Alex Watts : That is unless they say it is an unconditional offer, which I doubt.
Alex Watts : I am sorry if this is not the answer you want and certainly not the one I want to give you, but I have a duty to be honest.
Alex Watts : Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Do we have a right to ask to see any documentation they have from the main contractor, ie how much they have been offered or would we have to pursue them legally to obtain this information?
Alex Watts : Well if it goes to court they have to disclose all documents that assist their case and those that undermine it. So yes you may well do.
Alex Watts : You could ask for the documents as pre action disclosure.
Alex Watts : Does this help?
Thank you that is very helpful
