Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first.
Were Contracts ever exchanged?
I am sorry but the law in this area is starkly clear.
No liability accrues until Contracts are exchanged and you cannot reclaim your wasted costs from anyone
You should have been warned about this before paying for any plans to be drawn up.
I am very sorry - it is time this area was re-visited by Parliament but I fear there is little chance of this
Please ask if you need further details
Yes I am sure that you are correct - as i said it is an area which does need to be addressed
