Not sure if anyone can help, but I thought I'd ask. Is it 'usual' for
solicitors to hold on to monies received when handling estate
administration until, for example, the fiscal year processing suits them?
I ask because the final part of the dealings (selling the house) was
completed two months ago and as far as I am aware, all monies are in.
However, when trying to approach the solicitor, he is not replying to
emails or returning phone calls. It has been several weeks since his
last communication. I am just wondering whether he is waiting for tax
year end so he can "balance his books" to suit his requirements. Is
Perhaps I'm just being paranoid and he's really busy?!
