Selling a property with a charge on it placed by a Solicitor
My mother is a pensioner and has been going through probate since the death of her mother in 2003. Currently my mother is renovating the property she has inherited to ready it for sale which my mother is looking to sell before September 2013, which her Solicitor is fully aware is happening and the property has no mortgage on it as my grandparents paid it in full before their deaths. She instructed a Solicitor in 2005 to deal with all the details of the probate and has signed agreed terms with her Solicitor to pay the fees in full upon completion and sale of the house, however now the Solicitor wants to place a charge on the property and is forcing my mother to sign an RX1 form. Any advice would be most appreciated as wouldn't a charge on the property hinder the sale of the property and can her Solicitor do this, considering what was agreed and signed at the initial instruction of the Solicitor?
