Alex Watts : Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this. Please note that I am a working Solicitor and may be on and offline as I have to attend Court and meet with clients, even at weekends. As such you may not get an instant response when you reply, but rest assured I will be giving your question my immediate attention upon return You do not need to wait here as you will get an email when I reply.
Alex Watts : Were contracts exchanged at all please?
No contracts were not exchanged, I'm led to believe by my solicitors that the majority of the contract pack was exchanged but that a portion was missing. I've received a Memorandum of Sale from the vendor however.
Alex Watts : But did you and the vendor sign a contract which was exchanged please?
Alex Watts : Ok. Usually you can't claim anything until contracts have been exchanged.
Alex Watts : This is because in law either party can pull out,
Alex Watts : But if they lied and information was misleading you could always issue a small claim
Alex Watts : This would be for your wasted costs.
Alex Watts : You can do this online at www.moneyclaim,gov.uk
Alex Watts : Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
Are there any costs involved in issuing a small claim?
Alex Watts : Yes if you go to

Alex Watts : Does that clarify?
Yes it does, thank you for your help.
