We sold a home in March 2014. The lawyer who drew up the closing paperwork did it incorrectly and only charged us $900 for property taxes.
The actual bill came out to $2400 for 2013. The current homeowners have requested we pay them the $1500 difference, which we are not disputing that we owe.
We only want legal documentation of the difference. We are not comfortable writing a check that large without a legal document signed etc.
They have only provided us documents that state, 'not intended for legal purposes'. Is it unreasonable for us to ask for a legal document, perhaps from the title company that drew up the original closing papers? I have a hard time believing that previous homeowners just write a check to the current homeowners for whatever they say is due. How is this situation typically resolved?
