Hello my name is Ross and I may be able to help. I have read the attached information. Can you tell me what your question is specifically in this matter please. Thank you.
Clearly, the decision on this is going to be made by a judge, and it is not for me to comment on what they will decide. However, looking at the situation. I cannot see the likely hood that you would end up liable for these fees. The solicitor has given you advice and you have acted in accordance with this advice. Therefore if the judge decides that the fee falls at your feet, then they should ultimately fall at your solicitors for not advising that you could end up in this position, had that been the case you perhaps would have went down a different route. However, I would await the courts decision and if this is to fall at your feet, you can ask for any enforcement to be set aside so that you can pursue a claim against your solicitors. I know that sounds a little messy however, I cannot see inn any way that tit would be fair for you r to ultemetly be responsible fo frees which you were not advised may be payable by you. I hope that this makes sense.
