Thank you so much for your prompt response.
Just one more thing - any action which were to be taken against my father's solicitors: I am assuming that this is the only way the sale can go ahead - being as my father has an IVA, the Housing Association (Leaseholders), are insisting that the property share is only 25% - which obviously goes towards my Father's IVA. However, surely it's not going to be a legal transaction because as it stands, the lease "theoretically" still states 40%. Am I to assume that there is nothing that can be done by my solicitors to correct the problem so the property sale can go ahead? Or do they have to take action against my father's solicitors first? It will all obviously affect the IVA settlement greatly as their figures are based on 25% share. I am the executor of the estate.
That's absolutely great - thank you so much. I'm assuming by you saying "employ different solicitors" - is this because the existing conveyancing solicitors selling the property, aren't allowed to rectify the record, or did you base that on my comments in that they don't seem to be familiar with part buy/part rent property sales?
I'm assuming I won't get into any trouble, suing my Father's solicitors AFTER the sale because there was an IVA? I would like to think this is something that I can deal with away from what is a very complicated case of the estate being insolvent.
Thank you so much for your help. This will finalise my questions. You've been extremely helpful indeed.
