    Persimmons - Pulling out from the Solicitors which Builder advised

    Persimmons - Pulling out from the Solicitors which Builder advised 6th Sep 17 at 7:29 PM
    Hi guys,

    We have currently paid the Reservation for the new build plot in our area and we have notified the cabin (at the Persimmons builders site) that we wish to go with Mcvey & Murricane in Glasgow Scotland

    I'm having second thoughts and I'm starting to read websites and people stating do not use the Solicitors which the Builders have advised

    I don't know what it is, but I just get the feeling I should pull the plug and use one of our local town Solicitors.

    Can anyone please advise at what stage you can terminate the dealings with the Solicitor, namely Mcvey and M.

    Also would I get charged for pulling out? We are now at the stage, through Emails, the offer documents from our builder.

    Something else which has popped up which we were neve told about was a Builders Documentation Fee @ £230, this is what has alerted me, and makes me think what else will we be asked to pay for which we haven't been told about

    Dont be blackmailed by them, just mail the solicitors that you are using another firm. You have not paid them, so unless you signed anything there is no contract. Find a good local firm.

    I have asked M0bov


    This was their reply


    "
    Yes there would be fees to what has been provided, I will check with my manager/accounts team what is due to be charged.

    I have escalated within the company the options as the missive is concluded."


    Are you in Scotland M0bov? maybe different rules


    This company deals with everything done by Email so it's not like a walk in local Solicitor

    This doesn't make sense as your missives aren't concluded. Maybe they're still mixing you up with the other folk?!

    So if I reply to them asking,


    What will I say so they have to give me a clear answer, if the Missives aren't concluded?


    Is there anything I can check to see with the paperwork so far from them by EMail?

    Just appoint your new solicitors and ask them to sort it out.

    Ok I asked them what stage we were at


    Asked them: I was under the impression we were at the conditional missive and not that the Missive had been Concluded


    Reply


    "This is a conditional missive that has been concluded, which is subject to you receiving your mortgage offer. The missive will be a full missive when the mortgage offer is received"


    I am starting to get confused !!


    Why can't it just be like buying a Car ...

    Generally speaking - solicitor will get offer from builders' solicitor, copy it to you, you go through it with them so they can explain to you what it all means, if you're happy to conclude the contract you tell them and they then conclude missives. It didn't sound to me that you've done all that - unless your partner has without telling you?!
