We still have no news, my husband has been phoning since 9am, he was told at 9 that she would be in a meeting until 2 so he rang at 2 to be told she went to a meeting at 2 for the rest of the afternoon

I'd be in the solicitors office waiting until I got an answer.

He just spoke to her and we are none the wiser, there is an indemnity bond that’s signed by the builder but one digit is missing from the date and there’s no company seal on it.
I don’t know if every other house in the estate is the same or just ours. Houses have sold recently and there were no issues so I don’t get why we are so stuck.
She said the bank won’t let us have the money without the indemnity but our mortgage was drawn down last week and is in the solicitors account

If a mortgage I was liable to repay was sitting in the account of a solicitor who was not responding to my calls/emails I would be camped out on their doorstep till it was resolved.

Have you had contact with the builder/site foreman through the build and purchase to clarify matters with them?

It all sounds like very odd behaviour on the part of your solicitor. Can you contact the Law Society for guidance given that you say the solicitor has the drawn down mortgage in her account?

Solicitor had to give certain undertakings to the bank in order to get the funds.

She is obviously not happy with this document. It could be absolutely genuine and the missing digit an oversight.

If she doesnt know herself, she should be finding out urgently, ie within hours, if this is important and if so how to rectify it.

Many solicitors seem to have a warped sense of time and urgency, in my experience.

What is inexcusable is her obvious avoidance of you and her failure to be upfront.
