Thanks for the time to respond to my post.
The property is approx 4 years old. It is said to have a 10 years building gaurantee, although we haven’t seen sight of it yet.
The current owners had the property built in a rural location but have said that the FOI was not passed to them by the local council and it is something they did not chase up.
The estate agent says the First occuoancy licence is not applicable once the property has been registered and where exists a Title deed./Nota simple. Our solicitor has the Nota simple but says she has no title deed yet.
Our solicitor says the FOL is a vital document
