My aim is to have both covenants released for the original cost of £2000 + legal costs. I don't know what the successor in title of the second party will settle for, but she knows that the starting figure for negotiations is £4250 and she may well go higher. At a minimum I am going to have to pay £6500 more than originally agreed but the final figure is yet to be determined. Will the legal ombudsman order enough compensation to cover what is as yet an indeterminate figure, or is bringing a claim for negligence a better route. Or, do I have to adopt a tandem approach of instructing a new firm to bring a claim whilst establishing the final cost by negotiating with the second party's successor in title. Finally, with regard to instructing a new firm - will another high street firm do, or is this a task for a more specialist firm. If so where do I look?
