Liquidator costs of transferring from LLP to Ltd?

Liquidator costs of transferring from LLP to Ltd?

Hi, I used an accountancy firm and 3 years ago now we transferred my 6 London rental properties into an LLP. A liquidator was appointed and the LLP is in liquidation.

There was a long delay as the liquidator wanted annual accounts. Now that’s done horrendous fees are being asked by the liquidators+ their solicitors for marriage and conveyancing for completing the transfer to the Ltd. co.

It’s working as we are talking like £9k. I am checking my files/emails to see just what was agreed when they were appointed. I would have got some estimate, but it looks like there is a “new” section that wasn’t covered by their quote.

I wonder if I can change liquidators/ retain the mortgage (the bank was aware of the process and agreed to no break fee on the fixed rate)?

Many thanks

Blair

Welcome to the world of financial services, AKA 'scalping'.

Let's see, 6 London properties, must be over the million.

Percentage-wise, 9k surely less than 1% of property values?
While it's true the suits are being opportunistic, I would avoid the stress, counter-sueing and the rest and just pay it, move on. Life is too short.
