I have just sold my house and have completed and had the money. They now have a question about access to the land through a lane that the owners of the lane are now disputing. Their lawyer did not pick up on this before the sale completed. Have they git a right to ask me to buy my old house back an give them back their money?
Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you.
If you have completed etc no. The Solicitor should have checked all of this at the enquiry stage.
Therefore you dont have to give the money back etc.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?

Their solicitor has now sent me questions to answer. Eg when did I open the gate. I answered 10 yrs ago where an existing smaller gate was but was overgrown. He wants to know if I knew of any disputes before the sale. i answered i saw them once when they said it was pedestrian and animal access only. Now they tell the new owners they have nonright and the put a fence to cover the gate. Is this lawful?

Can I end up in court for this?? I have told the solicitor what I know. I spoke to the new owners of rhe lane where the gate is after the sale and they said they had no objection to it being used for agricultural purpouses and maintenance of my old houses cesspool which lies on this land and the access is needed for this. Now they have changed their minds and the purchasers solicitor is sending me questions to answer
