I was unsure where I can go to discuss the issues we are having but, my solicitor directed me to this forum. So I hope I can get some direction as to what to do to hurry Westpac up. I have no experience in settlements, so bare with me here.
We recently sold a property roughly 2 months ago, everything has been going well up until the settlement date which was the 8th July 2019.
Anyway long story short, the settlement did not take place on the 8th. They new date was set for the 12th that also did not take place. After speaking to my solicitor he assured me the bank was ready and Monday the 15th at the latest. Once again Monday the 15th was a no go. I spoke to my agent who spoke to the buyers solicitor who is telling us "the vendor's bank is not even ready on Pexa" <-----------I have no clue what this means.
Can someone give me some information on what this all means? is my solicitor lying to me? or is the bank just dragging their feet? Can I call the bank directly to get them to move their asses?
My wife and I are really upset as we have missed out on 2 other homes we where hoping to lock down with the settlement money.
Thank you in advance.

If you could send me, by private message, the details of your practitioner and the property being settled, I would be happy to look into this for you.

Hey guys, thank you for all your help in this matter. We managed to settle at the end of last week so really happy now. It's a shame we missed out on the 2 houses we wanted but perhaps there was a reason to this. Thank you once again.
