I am not saying my solicitor was at fault - he could not transmit my buying price as he had not received sale proceeds of my old house by the deadline! It has been suggested by him that the buyer was tardy in engathering his funds to pay the purchase price, thus his agent could not release the price - or the ban fudged things. I am the victim of the delay and seriously out of pocket as a result - so is it reasonable for me to expect re-imbursement from one source or another?
Thanks for your reply - which I have just found! being a non-tech golden oldie I was watching my incoming e-mails for your reply! I have to go away for a few days but will follow-up matters on my return - banks glitches may muddy the waters!JM
