You're right, and I'm a web site manager and not much good at anything else.
That's not necessarily a deal breaker. A good broker - I don't do broking and don't have a recommendation for brokers, sorry - may be able to assist you with all that. But professional advisers shouldn't cost £10K. You'd need just a lawyer, not an accountant. As TinkyWinky says, it could be done in £2K.
But if you've decided to call it off, then it's your decision. Hope I didn't scare you unnecessarily. The buyer may well have been an honest, well-intentioned one. They do exist :) And this type are always willing to sit and discuss options and accept reasonable terms that increase your comfort level.
