Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

No please do not call as I am at work and unable to answer phone.
Solicitor: John Melis, Lawyer replied 8 months ago

by chance do you have a copy of the contract of sale with you ?

as it is important to clarify the wording on the title.

you have said 'joint proprietors'

the title will either say, joint tenants or tenants in common.

I have extended a special offer to talk on the telephone to make it easier for you if you prefer ?
