    Buyer tbreatening court 10th Oct 17 at 5:27 PM
    I'm just posting to see if anyone has a bit of advice really, we sold our house and completed on the 29th of Septemeber. On the 5th of October we received an email from the buyers solicitor saying that the back patio door would not open and that if we didn't get if fixed immediately they would he taking us to court to sue. Now we know for a fact that the doors were working on the day we moved out, as we had to have them both open for our removal company. We will not accept liability for this and today received the following "With regard to the patio door your client states this was in working order “prior to completion”. Our client checked the day after completion when she collected the keys and no one else had been in the property. We cannot see legal and factual the basis for your client’s denial of liability." Can anyone advice on next steps?

    Thank you everyone. Some great advice. We will not longer respond to anything regarding the doors. I'm sure taking us to court would cost them more money than replacing the lock.
