Buying a flat without a "Regularisation Certificate" done?

I have made an offer to buy a converted flat. My solicitor has found out that a load load bearing wall removed and replaced with a lightweight structure. The seller is unable to produce a "building regulations consent". Is it ok if I insist the 'consent' certificate? I realize this will dealy my purchase.

  • If you don't have building regulations certificate, you will not be able to get a mortgage. If a load bearing wall was removed, then a structural beam would have to be put in its place. Are you sure it was load bearing, as damage would surely have occurred it it was. Do not proceed until this has been sorted out.
