Hello and thanks for using Just Answer.
My name is ***** ***** am happy to assist you with your enquiry.
Do you know if your Buyer is having a Mortgage?
Yes they have a mortgage in place
Thanks for your reply.
Your Buyers Solicitor (who I assume is aware of this problem) are under a duty to disclose to the Mortgage Lender if planning permission or Building Regulations have not been granted for a property.
Therefore, to enable matters to proceed, you are going to have to ask the Building Control officer to come out to the property, to enable the Completion Certificate to be issued. They will be holding records of the initial Building Regulations approvals, so they shouldn't have too much problem in issuing the completion certificate. However, this may all take time and it will be touch and go whether they are able to inspect this week. All you can do is plead with them to see if someone can go out and inspect this week.
I hope this assists and sets out the legal position.
Can I assist you any further?
