Post-Completion: Building Regs Approvals Etc

Recommended Posts

Bought 5 months ago.

Know I should really ask my solicitor this question, but to be frank they made the buying process complete torture, I totally regret choosing them, don't trust them, and really don't want to speak to them on the phone even if they could be bothered to pick it up. Haven't been able to find the answer with the usual web searches, so if anybody would happen to know....

The house had a change of use and was converted a few years back, and obviously that needed PP and building reg approval. I know my Sol obtained both of these, and I have a copy of the PP, but not the building regs. Clearly I'll need this in order to eventually sell it on, so what do I do? Is it the sol's responsibility to give me everything I'll need to sell it on during post-completion, or do I request the documents from them when the time comes to sell? Or will my future solicitor just get them again from the council?

I know they have to keep the conveyancing file for a while - 7 years? and I do plan on living here for a while.

Thanks.

Send them a letter. Solicitors don't like talking on the phone anyway. They'll probably just send the newest paralegal dogsbody into the basement to dig it out for you.
