Hi , recently I bought a second hand house, and the full payment from bank to the previous owner is already done about 1month ago. The S&P lawyer still holding the key for the house.
The reason is the S&P lawyer said they not yet received the confirmation for the settle of the utilities bill from previous owner. I was like WTF? Wanted to ask that is this should be happened? I thought the S&P lawyer should settle this before the payment make. If there is outstanding balance for the utilities bill(electricity or water) from previous owner, possible for me to register as new owner for the utilities? I had waited for 6months already. Any legal action should I take against the S&P? Need advises , thanks~
