Hi RBSB.

With apologies, if you're looking to make a technical argument to Lloyds I'd suggest getting advice from a solicitor with a knowledge of insolvency law.

Thanks, I donít know if Iím making a technical arguement . I just need to know if itís as straightforward as Ď in accordance with bankruptcy law/administration process in Scotland Lloydís were not entitled to apply for an inhibition and are now required to instruct its removal. Is that the crux of it?

Your liability for the debt to Lloyds was extinguished upon your discharge from sequestration and as such your argument would be that the renewal of the inhibition by Lloyds was not legally competent and it should be removed.

As stated previously though, we are not legally qualified and you should look to get assistance from a solicitor who specialises in this area.

I agree with what TDA and Kevin has advised.

I think it's now at the point that you would need to raise a formal complaint in writing. Someone senior at the bank will need to them deal with this in writing rather than over the telephone.

Explain in your letter that you were discharged from the Sequestration and that you are no longer liable for the debt. If you have paperwork regarding your Sequestration send this on too. I'd see what kind of response you get and if you need to take it further then may be an idea to speak with a solicitor who has insolvency / Sequestration experience.

Thanks all, I will need to go with formal complaint, expect that will take weeks and the sale cannot be saved.

As I go forward, I am aware that I am unsure on what processes would normally be in play to prevent this?

Should Lloyds or their lawyers have been aware/ made aware before/when lodging an inhibition that the sequestration should prevent it?

Should ROS normally comment on sequestration when inhibitions are lodged?

Should a trustee normally contact LLoyds when inhibition was notified (a copy was sent by us to the trustee who replied stating that it would be dealt with as part of the sequestration)

And I feel sure our conveyancing solicitor could reasonably be expected to carry out searches prior to the day of completion.

What a mess, a lot of fees generated by a lot of parties and no clear route to resolve it, very frustrated

I think the searches are generally a step taken towards the end of a transaction.

Presumably if Lloyds admit fault, you'll be looking to recover your costs and losses from them?

Thanks TDA, I think you're right, it was very last minute, as in I was told at 4.50pm on the entry date that the sale was not concluding.

I'm not sure how to quantify losses as I have yet to be billed etc but I definitely will pursue costs.

Still on the trail of resolution, removal of the actual inhibition at this point.

My comment about all the fees-charging entities was really just my frustration that so many vareties of 'professional services' have no real interest or ability in helping identify what the glitches were at any stage.
