Thank you Alex.
As I said in my original question, is there a statutory time limit for the issue of share certificates after purchase?
That's fine thank you. Unfortunately, the agreement I signed upon purchase includes the line "this application for Subscription by me is irrevocable." so I don't think that there is a lot I can do.
The company took well over 2 months to issue the share certificate. Because I had no details of the allocation or evidence of ownership I had no means of taking any remedial action as the price of the shares fell.
I think that's all I need, thank you. Probably worth a 'strongly worded' letter as they also sent the certificate to the wrong address contrary to my instructions. But I don't hold out much hope.
