The property belongs to my brother in law. He has a small amout of mortgage left to be paid. The deal was that he would pay off the mortgage and then just transfer the property to our name ( my name and my husband's).
As my previous e-mail we paid him £137K then he asked for another £10k to do the works but he did not started to do any work at all in the property.
About 2 weeks ago we started to do the main work like plumbing, heating,electricity. He keeps threatening to ask the workmen to leave the house if he is not happy with them. Whatever we do, he comes in to criticise it.
The paperwork was not dealt with straight away because he needs to settle the mortgage then transfer the documents. We have his written sales aggrement that and his bank statement proving the payments.
yes, there is a small figure owned on the mortgage.
He said he would transfer the documents to ourselves as soon as he could, because the remaining mortgage repayment. He wants to do the transfer himself. We have not contacted a solicitor regarding this purchase taking into account that he is a member of our family.
