Solicitor holding on to money
Our solicitor contacted us on 27th of November to say they had received £165000 from the buyer on 6th of December we asked why the money had not been realised they said they had still work to do and my wife needed to sign a form on 21st December we again asked where was the money and to give a reason why they had not realised the money as we had paid and sorted everything ie gas electricity council tax all of a sudden they said come down to sign the form and they would release it my wife went and signed the form they then said it would take 3 working days which took it to 27th December exactly a month from when they received the money they then said they needed her brothers death certificate so they could only release half of the money which they did on the 27th of December they are now holding the other half saying they need to send for the death certificate unbeknown to them we have sent for it ourselves and it only takes 24hours to get are they entitled to hold the money so long are they making interest which should be ours ?
