Our solicitor wants to do a deed of variation and the other solictor says its not needed

If you think you are able to help, I'm happy to pay for your service.

I’m afraid that we are specifically not allowed to take instructions from here.

If the site were to be a source of potential clients, we would no longer be independent because we would have an interest in pursuing litigation.  With no interest in pursuing litigation, we can be really objective with our view is to whether something has a good chance or a limited chance of success.

In any event, for logistical reasons you would be better using a local solicitor .

I’m sorry to be so blunt here but my suggestion is that if the seller’s solicitor will not do the deed of variation, find another house.  I have known solicitors spend weeks arguing over something that would cost a few hundred pounds to resolve and this is one of those.

Whilst it may or may not be required, your solicitor has raised the issue and I think quite justifiably.

Even if it went ahead without the deed of variation, when you come to sell again, your own then by a solicitor could raise the same issue so even if you got away with doing it now, it’s likely to raise its head again.

I’m sorry to be so blunt but the way of dealing with this is to put pressure on the seller to put pressure on their solicitor.

Thank you for letting me assist you with your legal question.  I am glad that I was able to help.

I am not certain whether that answers the question for you or not, but I am happy to answer any specific points arising from this.

It will be my pleasure to help you again either further with this or any future questions you have

Kind regards
