Thanks for your enquiry.
Whether you are responsible or not depends on what was agreed in the Sale Contract. I am guessing that the Solicitors agreed that any Bill received from the Council in respect of the roof would be payable by you. (Hence why they held on to the £4,000 from the Sale proceeds, on the assumption that this sum would more than cover any Bill received).
Would you say this is correct?
This should of course all been explained to you. Was it?
Thanks for your reply.
Have you got anything in writing form the Council, saying that no further monies were due?
