    A court has ordered that a rectification of deeds should be applied for to the Land Registry for a carport that is beneath our master bedroom that never had any lease put in place when the houses were built 10 years ago. Long story short, we did not contest this as after 4 years of solicitor fees we have given in to the building company and let them have it. The problem is that now we are SSTC on our house with Taylor Wimpey who we are part exchanging with on a new build. They are now saying that they need the paperwork from the land registry before any contracts can be exchanged. According to our solicitor it is down to the building company's solicitors to contact the land registry to get it all arranged. We can't afford for them to drag their heels with this.. how long would the land registry take to draw up the new paperwork, does anyone know? We really need to get this sorted ASAP as I'm worried Taylor Wimpey will pull out of the part exchange and we have already paid over 10k for the options on the new build as this needed doing before the roof got put on.

    Hopefully the land registry rep will see this and tell you

    But it's a simple piece of paperwork , should not take long
