I left some money on client account with a purchasers solicitor (property sale) the terms were clear and all bills had to be presented by 1 july 2012 and all remaining monies should have been returned to me by 31 dec 2012.
There is £240 which they are holding on to based on a quote dated august 2012.
I have disputed this - solicitor saying they have to talk to client and then ignoring me.
This has gone on for a year now and I am getting nowhere.
Can i complain to the Law Society or the Ombudsman re unprofessional conduct (as it is my buyers solicitor not mine) or do i have to resort to Small Claims Court. And is it worth it for around £240.
