Thank you for your reply, if I hadn't asked my lawyer if he was working for both parties then I guess he wouldn't have told me and I would never have known, I refused the offer to start with and stated the price I wanted for the property and if the buyer was prepared to accept it then the house would be sold but I must add my lawyer really wanted me to take the lower offer to start with which would have been in the interest of the buyer and this lawyer has been working for my family for years but I will never deal with him again as I feel I have been treated unfairly
I also had to get an update on the home report done which cost me £120 and I had to call the lawyers office to ask if they had it, they got it on the Friday and I called on the Monday , I asked them to e mail me the copy, the buyers had it but I didn't up to that point, can I take any action against this lawyer as his bill will be taken off the cheque for the sale of the house before I get it
Hi, thank you for your help, i did go and see another lawyer on Friday but unfortunately i didn't realize because he had been dealing with the first couple's offer it would be best if i could go to someone that hadn't been involved which is fair enough. i have made an appointment for 11am today with my own lawyer and i'm going to state that what he has done wasn't in my best interest and illegal and i would like him to take something off his bill, if i don't get any satisfaction then i will take action against him, do you think that would be ok to do that ?
Thank you, i appreciate your help and back up on this and hope it goes well today as this has been affecting me, it's hard enough selling your parents home without the lawyer letting me down too
I've just had a thought, if i ask the lawyer takes something off his bill then would he just add it on to something else before i get it so that he doesn't lose out ?
I know he shouldn't but how would i know if the breakdown of the account wasn't tampered with before i got it as i wouldn't know the legal charges
I have been to see my lawyer and got things sorted out and he has agreed to take something off his bill and he has apologised so i feel better than i did before, thank you for all your help and advice
