You mention this is a new build?
and he replied 'we will not argue as its time consuming'?
Could you clarify that a little more please I don’t quite understand it?
Apart from the potential delay, what exactly is the problem?
Let me just deal with the search issue on its own.
If searches are delayed, it is possible to get Search Delay insurance to insure against an adverse result so it’s still possible to complete without the searches so that shouldn’t be a reason to hold things up.
It is not at all unusual, particularly for a new build for the property not to be registered in which case, the developer would send former TP1 your solicitor which is the transfer of part from the whole into your name and they would send the transfer from whoever they purchased the land from into your name.
What your solicitor would have to ascertain of course is that the developer had good title to the land on which the property was built and that whoever sold it to the developer had provided the necessary transfer deed. That seems to be the problem, rather than the searches.
It was my pleasure to assist you. Please come back if anything else crops up and needs clarification.Thank you for trusting Just Answer, and of course me, with your legal problem.
