  • help please !!

    HI we accepted a offer on our house last october and its taken since then for our buyers soliciters to sort everything out they have been completely unreasonable asking silly questions. we have finally got to contract signing stage which is supposed to be today but there solicitor is not in and they say no one else can deal with it. We are very worried as our moveing date although a while off is on a friday and we have been informed that there solicitor who is dealing with the conveyancing only works monday and tuesday. any advice about any action that could be taken would be greatly appreciated.

    many thanks

    Delay by the other side is an issue I keep encountering as a conveyancing solicitor (Richard Webster & Co Solicitors, Conveyancing at a reasonable price )

    1. Your solicitor will need to get hold of this solicitor next Monday/Tuesday and seek to exchange and ask the other solicitor how the completion can take place if he is not there on Fridays.

    Quite ridiculous for anyone doing conveyancing not to have someone else available to deal with things that happen on Fridays - as most completions take place on that day.

    2. As to what else you can, very little - your only sanction is to threaten to pull out unless the buyer and his solicitors get their act together. These threats are only taken seriously if there is an alternative course of action e.g. letting the property - which the buyer believes you would take if he doesn't get on with it. Most of the time these threats are idle because the seller doesn't really want to pull out because it means starting all over again - and buyers know that!
