Ask an Property Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
Hello, Thank you for your question and welcome. My name is ***** ***** I will assist you. I am sorry to hear you are having this trouble. Who is holding the deposit? Is it a solicitor? Have you sent them an itemised statement?
The non response for three weeks is probably a conduct offence - your options are:
1. Complain to the SRA about the solicitor;
2. Consider serving a statutory demand on the seller for repayment;
3. Commence a county court claim. In order to do this you would have to serve 7 day letter before action which may prompt a response.
Is the seller solvent and still trading? kind regards AJ
Thank you. If you have served a notice to rescind you should send a statement detailing exactly how much should be repaid plus interest and a deadline by which it should be repaid. They cannot dispute the debt - so serving a statutory demand might put some pressure on them - as it puts them under the threat of insolvency proceedings.https://www.gov.uk/statutory-demands
Is the seller a limited company? I do hope this has been useful so far.
Kind regards AJ
