  1. My wife and I reserved a new buld Cala house back in March and are part exchanging our current property with them. The move in date was moved from August to end of Nov due to the coronavirus. We appointed our solicitors back in March and they have been utter shite providing no updates, not replying to phone calls or emails. This resulted in me emailing the partner of the firm with a complaint in July, I received a phone call from him within 30 mins apologising, blaming it on staff shortages due to the corona. He informed me the case would be passed to another of the solicitors to be progressed. There was slight progress after this with the missives being completed at the start of August. We heard nothing from them since the start of August and assumed everything was getting worked on in the background without issue. At the start of last week we were contacted by Cala to make us aware of an issue with the title deeds for our current house (relating to the purchase back in 2013), our solicitors were apparently aware but didn't contact us. My wife was able to source paperwork from her old solicitor in 2013 and this was passed onto our current solicitors who had still not contacted us. I then emailed them to ensure they had received this paperwork and for an update on the rest of the conveyancing work. I received a legal jargon filled reply explaining the current problem, but no information on how they planned to resolve this. I replied asking how this would be resolved and for an update on the rest of the conveyancing work. I didn't receive any reply. Three days later I emailed the partner again complaining, he provided a comprehensive reply explaining the problem with the deeds and the possible resolutions (which I was happy to receive) however he stated that the paralegal had discussed all this with me the day before and I had been sent several emails in the previous weeks (both of which were entirely untrue). I replied (firmly but politely) challenging this and asking for proof of the emails I had been sent. About 10 minutes later the partner emailed me stating that he was withdrawing their services as we 'appeared to be going down different paths' and that we would need to find new solicitors to complete the sale and that he would pass on all documentation to our new solicitors upon full payment of their fees (still awaiting their invoice to find out if they're trying to charge me the full amount quoted at the start). I'm at abit of a loss as to where this leaves us now, we have a little over 4 weeks to find a new solicitor and for them to complete the sale/purchase. This is not sufficient time for them to complete all the work from scratch so will require the paperwork completed so far by our current solicitors. Should I just pay the amount they quote so that we can get the relevant paperwork so the sale can be completed by the new solicitor for the move in date and just take it on the chin as a life lesson never to use them again? Has anyone ever been in a similar situation that a solicitor has withdrawn their services and left them in the lurch?
  2. 1917(and the uhd version) included with Amazon Prime along Parasite. Good to have recent films added not too long after their release!
  3. You really can't beat Aldi and Lidl for their selections of beers, especially when they've got their Scottish Beer Festivals on the go.
  4. The adverts make it look like 30 mins of Sara Pascoe/her character being bitter that everyone else is happy and she's not!
  5. I bought a cheap sous vide wand for about £15 off ebay a couple of years ago, I didn't have one of the vaccum dealers so tried the 'lowering the bag slowly into the hot water' method which is meant to expel all the air but it never appeared to do that good a job and I found the meat sometimes had a slightly funny smell after sous videing it (possibly to due still having air in the bag with the meat). I'm often tempted to pick up one of the cheap vaccum sealers from amazon as it would get used for putting stuff in the freezer but another kitchen gadget is the last thing I need.
  6. That's an absolute nonsense offside decision. Mane's shoulder must have been millimetres offside despite his feet being quite clearly onside (appreciate it doesn't go just by the feet position but just shows how much of a nonsense it is).
  7. Adrian looking abit suspect at the goal and the shot leading up to it.
  8. Terrible tackle, lucky to get away with it. I take it the ref can't give him a yellow because it was called offside?
  9. He's the same in GoT, his accent changes dramatically between series.
  10. Andy Burnham, just seems like a moaning faced c**t.
  11. Skechers seem to do fairly trendy and modern designs for women but it looks like they couldn't be arsed when it came to the men's range as they all look like trainers fat Americans wear when on 'vacation'. It's a shame as they are bloody comfy!
  12. Not sure if it's badly worded or a typo but this message from the club suggests that all ppv income from the match will go to Clyde.
  13. Think it was prob well soiled before it even left the factory!
  14. Everton have an abundance on midfielders after essentially signing a full new midfield in the summer. Bernard has hardly played for Everton this season.
  15. Was just coming on to complain about some hipster looking burd doing some poetry about getting a free bit of cake. Get yourself to f**k!
  16. When Falkirk TV are showing live games does it play in a browser or is it a private live stream on YouTube?
  17. Couple of hours left to bid on a signed ball from the 04/05 season. I mean who would want to miss out on the opportunity of having Neil Scally's autograph! https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/133527247791
  18. Seen this the other day, yet to try it but it all makes sense!
  19. Good surely. Likely to be £3 at the very least for the T, so £2.35 for the G&T seems very cheap!
  20. I've got a Falkirk Fc signed ball for sale on ebay at the moment. Signed by players from the 04/05 squad including legends such as Russell Latapy, John Hughes and Neil Scally. And some not so memorable names including Manuel Kante and Ian McSween. http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/710-53481-19255-0/1?icep_ff3=2&pub=5575378759&campid=5338273189&customid=&icep_item=133527247791&ipn=psmain&icep_vectorid=229508&kwid=902099&mtid=824&kw=lg&toolid=11111
  21. Might sound abit strange but have you tried taking the battery out and putting it back in.A few months my laptop was playing up, fingerprint scanner wouldn't work, tracking pad wouldn't work either and a few other things and taking the battery out and then back in fixed it, I've no idea why but its been totally fine since. If you are looking for a new laptop go on to hotukdeals website and search for laptops, there's always loads getting posted on there. Here's an example that I'd imagine would prob suit your needs https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/huawei-matebook-13-2020-amd-ryzen-5-3500u-8gb-256gb-free-mouse-and-backpack-for-ps49499-using-unique-code-at-huawei-store-3547372
  22. The Gentlemen - Amazon Prime Surprised by how much I enjoyed this, its more of the same Guy Ritchie London gangster setting/story but it does it really well. 8/10.
  23. Crystal Palace made an offer of £19m + £6m in add ons to Liverpool for Brewster. It's amazing how much money clubs like Liverpool can make from selling relatively untried players like Brewster, Solanke and Ibe for £15m-£20m each. Even better when you realise they've signed Thiago Alcantara for £20m.
  24. It looks phenomenal, I really hope it's as good as it has the potential to be. I don't often buy games on release but we've got a baby coming at the start of Feb so don't think I'll get time to play it after that!
  25. Appreciate its limited highlights from a preseason game but we looked to attack with a bit of pace and driving forward which has been lacking from the club for a number of seasons. Hopefully be an end to a dozen sideways passes to end up exactly where we started!
