Hello Perhaps you can comment. I own a croft and agreed

Resolved Question:

Hello
Perhaps you can comment. I own a croft and agreed to sell a site for an industrial
building. I accepted the offered price and after receiving written conformation ,
instructed my solicitor, expecting like previous sites sold, that after de-crofting I would
give title and receive payment within a few months. After nearly eight years the building
is long erected but the site has not been de-crofted I have not given title or received any
payment. The solicitor says"he can not get any sense out of them" the County Council.
What is the legal position? Thank you

Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.

Alex Watts :

Have you formally written to the Council to complain please?

Customer:

No just informal

Customer:

My solicitor has tried without result

Customer:

I have your reply but no information just reading mail ?

Alex Watts :

You should write to the Chief Officer of the Council and make a formal complaint.

Alex Watts :

That department will investigate the matter and report back to you.

Alex Watts :

If that does not resolve the matter then you can complain to the Ombudsman. They are independent of the Council and can examine your complaint for free. They are located at: www.lgo.org.uk

Alex Watts :

That should resolve the matter

Alex Watts :

Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

Customer:
