Can you confirm - you are making a claim against a solicitor who is acting in the sale of some land this Friday. You are also asking about selling some separate land in different transaction unrelated to the solicitor and you want to know if this unrelated sale will affect any claim you make against the aforementioned solicitor?
If I have misunderstood please clarify.

This is something that you need to take specific advice on from another solicitor n your area who you can take details of the transaction. JustAnswer really is not the forum for these types of enquiry I'm afraid, it's for more general advice like your question yesterday.
You are entitled to ask that your file is released to you from the solicitors, if you have not paid their fees they may seek to claim a lien on the file (ie. to retain it until their legal fees are paid) but you can attempt to leverage your complaint against them.
Sorry I could not help in any details, there is no need to click accept to this but please acknowledge this post and I shall request that you are refunded by the moderators for this question.
