Hello, am a bit naive about these sorts of things.
I moved last August and the estate that owns the grounds sent me a ground rent bill for £250, no worries there.
However, my solictor didn't inform them of the new owner (me) so the estate are asking for a £300 admin fee to change the name from previous owners to mine.
The solictor admits it was his error and is asking I pay him the £300 and he'll sort it with the estate. Should I be paying, or should the solictior pay because it was his error for not doing it last year? Should I play hard-ball and say his error, he pays? Can they really get me to pay 10 months later when it was their screw up?
(I had the money a year ago budgeted in the house-move; I don't have the money now.)
Cheers in advance.
