Ok last week we sold our house and purchased a new one which was more expensive.
So we basically put all our money into our new house plus my in laws help us out with a large lump sum.
Last week I emailed my solicitor before settlement my estimate of how much extra I would need. She replied and gave me the final amount which then my in laws transfer the amount. And then they locked away their money in term deposits.
Settlement went ahead and done.
Today a week later I got a email from my solicitor telling me we owe $3500.
The house we sold we negotiate our price in the original contract and the price went down $3500 from the first asking price. As it happens in negotiating.
But the buyer solicitor stuff up cause they settle using the original price
I'm so mad cause for one I emailed the solicitor before settlement wanting the exact amount.
And now it's all done we don't have $3500. I would of had to borrow it from in laws but its to late the rest of their money was transferred to term deposits in their pension fund.
The solicitor just sent me an email saying "sorry didn't calculate the $3500 reduction so here is our bank account please pay ASAP"
I know it's the right thing to pay but I'm so mad. Our tax refund will have to pay it.
It's a pretty big stuff up which can happen but why to us. Why now when we are paying the cost to move and find $3500.
It just never ends
