    I’ll try lifting it a little. I’ll also check for these blocks.

    Cheers

    If the stuck down piece has cutouts,(can't quite see) I think you are on the way to a disaster. My 2p.

    Update:
    So I decided to pull the corner unit out as this was catching my eye the most. It looks like the tops haven’t been stuck to any of the units so it was just a case of lowering the unit by the legs and pulling the unit out a little. I’m a lot lot happier with it now. Thanks everyone for giving me the confidence to do this.

    Mmmm it's not recommended because it's likely to crack and snap if you try to remove it. It's a specialist fit service for that reason.
    It's quite fragile when its in free slab form. But not as fragile as natural granite.
    If possible you might want try removing the unit not the top. Try release the compound that it's sitting on, silicone type. Drop the cabinet height by using the screw part of the legs. One the units are free realign.

    Failing that I'd get a fitter in but 9ne who 2ill show you their public liability insurance. You should be covered for any damage l. Verbally accepting the job as "competent" and "confident" in the ability to achieve the result is a legally binding contract of payment.
    Surely if the template was done they'd have seen the units weren't aligned and should've mentioned it
