Yes, the council granted retrospective completion certificate for the extension and electrics.
Most of the works are in relation to the extension, to open the house into it etc. However, I believe a doorway has been widened (but not removed) to create a through lounge, a chimney breast has been removed and a gas meter removed to make way for the extension.
The vendors estate agent and solicitor are saying that they do not have to present anything for these works. Our solicitor will not release funds without certification for them.The estate agent is now threatening that they will
"just get another buyer' if I don't 'sort my solicitor out'. However, we feel she is obviously acting in our best interest -but we feel is is stale mate and we are caught in the middle mot knowing who to believe.
Thank you very much. The issue we now have is that our solicitor says that because the council have been involved it is mot that straightforward to get an indemnity policy.
The vendor is being uncooperative I'm relation to the queries on this, which worries us. The estate agent is also very combative on the subject.
They are saying that if we want the plans we will have to go to the council ourselves. But we can't afford to pay a full day rate for our solicitor to visit (Leeds to Sheffield) or for me to go down as we are on process of moving, I work and have 2 you children.
it is becomi g incredibly stressful and we are thinking of walking away but after waiting so long we feel we are so near, yet so far!?
