My ex is being removed from deeds of house....all agreed. How long should legal stuff take to process? Time of essence as mortgage company offer on solo offee time limited!
Thank you for your question.
My name is Clare
I will do my best to help you but I need some further information first.
Were you married to your ex and are there any court orders involved?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.
Yes and yes. That bit is all sorted. My solicitor has done their bit but house is part owned by building company and their solicitirs (who I had to pay for at a fixed rate which is treble what my solicitor charged) are being been 6 weeks.
Ah I see - they are often a problem
Has the TR1 been prepared?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.


And have you and your ex both signed it?
Is the seal of the Building Company all that is required?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Ex doesn't need to sign it.....judge signed it in his absence. Otherwise I've signed everythimg I need to. The building company has all agreed too....just their solicitors need to process paperwork and wondering why taking so long when my solicitor did so quick snd worried I'll lose my mortgage offer

Unfortunately the only explanation is that they are simply not treating this as being of any importance because they do not need to.
There is no excuse for it as frankly their role is not exactly taxing.
However it does seem that your solicitor is very competent so I suggest that you ask then to chase it for you - there really is no excuse for the delay
Please ask if you need further details
