A solicitor sold my property to a fraudster. Fraudster produced fake utility bill and a driving licence in my name (fake utility bills and driving licences can be bought for £5.00 on the internet). The law society’s recommends that as long as the documents are from an independent source they are acceptable to the solicitor whether they are genuine or not. I had to go to the court to reverse the sale deed with significant legal costs.
The insurance company of the Sellers’s solicitor is not paying any compensation to me for the costs I had incurred, insisting that the solicitor has followed the guideline as stipulated by the law society; the documents submitted by the fraudster are from an independent source irrespective of the documents are genuine or not.
However, the law society is investigating the transaction. As the law society is a closed circle, they will support the solicitor and show a single finger to me.
Does anyone know how I pursue the case further? Please note it can happen to anyone as long as there are sloppy solicitors.
