I did say in theory. I know a very large builder in UK had exactly done this on a property costing £2.5 million.
The buyer wanted to pull out. The builders took them to Court for breach
of contract. The buyer had to sell other assets to complete the sale.
I have had a quote from another solicitor to review our situation – he wants 600 euros but also needs us to tell our solicitor and get all the paperwork. I suppose it is not a lot of money for peace of mind but I wonder what our solicitor would say.
