Ask an Property Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.
For now please let me know when it says they need to pay £5 by?
You don't receive the £5, it is deducted at the end upon completion. So you don't get the £5 yet.
If the option expires in 11 days and you don't complete then you do not need to use them, the option expires.
In any event if they knew you were advertising with someone else you can't be in breach, they knew you weee already doing this.
Just delay completion then the option expires and they have to remove the notice.
Can I clairfy anything for you about this today please?
Does that clarify?
If I could ask you to rate my answer before you go today, by clicking on the 5 stars or happy face, otherwise the site does not pay me for the time spent with you today. Thank you in advance and good luck!
Sadly Alan this is a question and answer site so I cant be instructed - you would need to engage your own Solicitor for this, as much as I would like to help
