Conveyancer Not Providing Any Details about The Settlement
Last edited 23/11/2019 - 02:24
I had my land settlement in august and I then got an email from my conveyancer stating "we are happy to confirm that your settlement has now taken place". He was dealing directly with my bank and I had no clue about duties, fees etc. I never got any document regarding my settlement. Hence I requested him split of fees/rates/duties and overall statement for the settlement. He initially responded saying will get it over the weekend.
I followed up with him at least 10-20 times over the email. I only have the email of my conveyancer ( he wasn't my original coneyancer, but due to the death of my original coveyancer, it was assigned to him directly). He was dealing over the email claiming had no office/direct contact due to his changed circumstances. His response over the email was average, but was acceptable till settlement, but then he completely started ignoring email and he never provided me any information.
Meanwhile I was in discussion with my builder for constructing the house on the land and they requested for a proof from the conveyancer, which I didnt have (including title folio number). The best thing I could do was to pay $15 to get the title details through landata.
I still continued to send him emails and my conveyancer never responded.
Till date don't know what was my rates, what exactly was the final price, what was his fees etc. No details he shared to me. Luckily through the title document I ordered thorough landata, I can myself confirm that the land is in my name and the transaction happened on that day.
What is the way forward for me when my conveyancer is not responding to me after enjoying my fees. I am fed-up of sending him followup emails politely.
Requesting all of your advises :(
Thanks in advance,
