Thanks for your question. I am a solicitor in Scotland. The first issue here is to establish whether the missives, that is the contract between you and the seller, is still live from a legal point of view. Most missives of sale are time restricted to one or two years. If that is the case your claim no longer exists. The next thing that has to be checked, if the missives are still in force, is whether the usual clause about the seller being liable for outstanding works exists in the missives and to what extent. This can vary from works completed but not yet paid for, works authorised, works proposed and works contemplated. From what you say if a couple of people pin the building were at the early stages of getting quotes at the time you purchased that may not come within the scope of missives typical to this type of transaction. In summary, to consider both issues I raise, you will need to have the missives looked at, firstly to see if they are still in force and secondly whether they provide a remedy for you. This is a matter of contract so what the missives say determine the issue. I hope that helps. Please leave a positive rating so that I am credited for my time.
No, not strange. This is not a chat service. I was driving home hence the delay. You can ignore the phone call offer, the system generates the offer. As regards ***** ***** your solicitor will have a copy on file and should have given you a copy during the course of the transaction.
