    Our Buyers Solicitor has gone AWOL

    We are currently selling our leasehold property. We have sold it to a company that has agreed to pay full market value. The sale was agreed some months ago. We have in the mean time found a freehold property we want to buy and our solicitor has completed the conveyancing on it. It is ready to exchange. As is we understand our sale. However our buyers solicitor has now basically disappeared. Doesn't respond to our solicitors emails for over a fortnight, not answering the phone to them. Our estate agent has got hold of someone in his office who has repeatedly promised to get a move on, but he doesn't seem to.

    Really wanted to be moved by Xmas.

    We have found we have this solicitors contact details from the memo of sale and also our buyers phone number and email. Should we try and chase them up ourselves or is it likely to make things worse?

    This is becoming increasingly frustrating

    It's on of the reasons you're paying your estate agent and it would be slightly unusual to have direct contact with the buyer's solicitor. I can't see any harm in emailing your buyers though, they can chase their lazy solicitor.

    You may well find it is the buyers themselves who are, for some reason, trying to slow things down ~ threaten to cancel the sale, that should get things moving.

    Only your solicitors should be contacting anyone - don't get involved as things can be said,. which confuse the situation. You can only ask your solicitor to keep you up to speed.

    It's why I like property auctions and a supply of decent conveyancers, cuts out or reduces so much of the nonsense above.

    On a train, bus, in a station, an unattended item or bag, it's OK to ask, "ose is it "?
