Now, I have a problem regarding a property purchase. My old incompetent solicitor was informed I no longer wished him to act on my behalf. He acknowledged this. He knows this property purchase needs to go through asap. It was also at the beginning of a new purchase. I have instructed new solicitors. However, today I received a fax from the vendors solicitors saying that ******** was not aware he was no longer acting on my behalf. I have an email proving otherwise and therefore he has lied. He is deliberately holding up the purchase and I wondered whether there was any pressure that could be applied? I have just gone into orbit over this, so communication with the pillock is not wise at this time.
