The key is sadly your solicitors. They need to start pressing the building company for a resolution of this matter. It should to have taken 12 months. I would be minded to write formally to the solicitors giving them a proposed deadline for resolution (you may have to be a little flexible on this) but you would want them to bring the matter to a proposed resolution prior to christmas. I would seek an explanation for the delay and your solicitor's proposals. You may have to consider escalating the matter if this can not be resolved. Happy to discuss. Please rate positive.
