I am a vet, I retired from a 50% partnership to relocate to New Zealand on 31/03/2013. I am still awaiting payment which is now overdue.The partnership agreement states that on any money owed, interest at the partnership interest rate accrues from the succession date which was 5 months ago.The delay is due to the business accountant not responding to the following questions despite several requests by myself and my solicitor, and my partners solicitor who are doing the conveyancing of the freehold properties. (1) What is the partnership interest rate?Is it 6% (my solicitor thought there may be a standard rate in legislation, perhaps The Partnership Act. (2) Is the interest rate calculated monthly and then interest applied to additional amount at the end of each month? (3)Does my partner owe me any rent on the properties (solicitors cant do conveyancing as accountant has not responded to queries regarding interest due)
