no other than i pursued a reason as to why iv not completed ..i was given the reason he was sorry he has just come back from holiday!.Im annoyed as my mortgage has been in place since sept and ill be a yr older next month Feb and all this wasted time i am paying rent when i should have been reducing my repayment mortgage .. seems a very long time 18 weeks esp when a friends of mine also had them to do their conveyancing and instructed a week after me and completed on their house /sale/and new purchase four weeks ago! Mine should have been straight fwd Right to buy .. no chain as i already live in property.

Alex Watts : Indeed.
Alex Watts : Is he a single man firm?
Customer :

No N P Eason solicitors

Alex Watts :

I would write and complain to the Managing Partner of the firm

Alex Watts :

They will have a system in place that deals with complaints as this a compliance requirement.

Alex Watts :

If that does not resolve the matter you can then take it to the legal Ombudsman who offer a free independent service at: http://www.legalombudsman.org.uk/

Alex Watts :

Or the Solicitors Regulatory Authority: www.sra.org.uk

Alex Watts :

They can both recommend that the bill is reduced or you are due compensation

Alex Watts :

That should resolve the matter for you
