Hello and thanks for using Just Answer.
My name is ***** ***** am happy to assist you with your enquiry.
Until your Solicitor exchanges Contracts on your behalf, for which he will need to obtain your authority by way of a phone call, either you or the Seller are free to withraw from the transaction without compensating the other party.
Therefore, in the unlikely event of you not proceeding to exchange of Contracts, your Solicitor wold return your Deposit to you.
If there are only a few outstanding Leasehold enquires outstanding, I would certainly hope that these will have been dealt with by 16th, to enable you to proceed to exchange.
I hope this assists and answers your question.
Hi,Can I assist you any further?
If not, I would be grateful if you could rate my answer.Kind RegardsAl
