Thank you for the question. With this being the case, it would seem your solicitor is at fault. If that is the fact, then you will require to raise a complaint to the law firm who has dealt with this and ask them to remedy the matter and they should not be looking to charge you if they are rectifying their mistake. If you are not able to obtain a remedy via the law firm themselves, you can escalate the matter to the Solicitors Regulation Authority who can do an independent review into the matter. In the meantime, you will want to explain this matter to the opposing solicitor and ask if they have an offer of remedy for the alleged breach. If your solicitor was negligent this could speak to a defence should they attempt to bring contempt proceedings.
