It is not an ideal situation but the law does allow for mistakes. As the bill was overlooked and the work was done you can be asked to pay it. The solicitors have up to five years to claim payment and they are well within that period. I'm sorry that isn't what you want to hear but that is the legal position. I hope that helps.
