Property sale transaction fallen through
Hi Cem,
1 I agree sale of my house at price 'x'. No deposit paid.
2 Purchaser and I both send advance fees to solicitors to deal with sale /purchase.
3 Buyer offers new price of 'x' - £9000.
4 I refuse new offer, so sale falls through.
5 My solicitor now refuses to reply to requests for any (partial) refund of fees

What should I try next?

It should first be known whether there's a written contract between you and your solicitor that stipulates his fee. You can demand him/her to pay the amount back if there's a "no results no pay" clause in the contract.

Thanks for the reply,
I have a 'written' quote by e mail - I will use that to try again!
