    • They don't always get the timescale right.
    • If there is anything wrong with any of the documents, they won't get back to you and tell you.
    • You have to chase them. That's when you find there was a problem with one (or more) of the documents.
    • You may find that you or one of the other signatories needs to go in and sign something else. Again, they won't tell you this unless you chase them.

    Good luck ...
