My daughters ex-husband agreed to sign over their little house to my daughter in place of maintenance for her and my grand-daughter so the house could not be repossessed by the creditors ( my ex-son in law ran up bills of £45 thous.without my daughter knowing!) My daughter borrowed the money almost a thousand pounds to pay the legal cost. Her husband finally signed the forms went to court etc., then the Royal Bank of scotland told my daughter that the document was worded incorrectly. My daughters solicitor admitted the wording was wrong, but now my ex son in law has changed his mind about signing! would the amended document stand up in court? could my daughter get the £1000 back? can any one advise, my daughter lives in derbyshire so I just cant pop around to help her...:-(
You must speak to the Law Society - they will be able to offer assistance. I obviously don't know all the facts, but it sounds like which solicitor worded the contract is negligent and you have a possible claim against him/her. See how you get on with the Law Society and PM if need any further assistance.
Tell your daughter to get a new solicitor at once, someone who specialises in family law. The solicitor she has sounds pretty inept. She should have been able to get legal aid by the sounds of things. Was this suggested to her?
