      Laurence Ian Ward

      Conveyancing/property

      1 stars

      02/06/17 - Reviewed by Ex client

      A recent property boundary issue required me to check my documentation provided by Ward &Co when I purchased the (new build) property in 2005.

      The documentation provided by Ward & Co illustrated my boundary line based on the title plan(not provided by Ward an Co). However a recent check of the government land registry is different and indicates a reduced boundary compared with Ward & Co's documentation.

      Investigations revealed Ward and Co where closed down in 2009 and a review on this site indicated they were brought before the Solicitors Disciplinary Tribunal for prosecution. I'm now left without any recourse as the Solicitors Regulation Authority have no means to address what appears to be a misrepresentation by Ward & Co with respect my property boundaries.
