We were going to get a DIP from RBS this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc).

It was part of a development site and my property lawyer told me that it can take twelve months to register. I have spoken with HM Land Registry directly and they say that the original application was cancelled due to failure to reply to requisitions. Do I need to be concerned?
It is your conveyancer that you should get in touch with in order to satisfy any concerns which have been raised as part of the registration process for your Clophill property. Normal Clophill conveyancing practice includes an undertaking on the part of the previous owner’s lawyer that they will help resolve any registration raised by HMLR so it may be a case of taking action to enforce that undertaking if necessary.
