I am not sure I understand what I am reading here. Something about buying a flat ? You are a first time buyer ?
Can you add " translate into Italian or French options (clicking on little flags) to your soapbox page, please. It would make things easier for me. Sorry, I am not English mother-tongue but I am a EU national. I am a home owner. You need advice with buying a flat.....why is the solicitor not able to keep things on track ? That's what he/she gets paid for $$$ by YOU in order to get the job done !
Perhaps, you should hire a BETTER, more experienced, cost-efficient & professional EU solicitor.
Merci Beaucoup, Mille Grazie,
Kindest regards MMH1
