Is it normal that in 3 legal documents the postal address of a flat has discrepancies?

I am a first time buyer and have put an offer on a North London flat in the area of Bounds Green in mid January and it was accepted. I have also read a lot of literature regarding the process of buying a property and the many tricks and discrepancies that you might encounter. My mortgage offer was ready by the end of January 2011. Is now the 13th of April and I still have no good news. There are discrepancies with the flat address as in 3 legal documents the address is different from each other. My solicitor has written several letters to the sellers solicitor as we will not sign anything until this mater is sorted. We are still awaiting for the seller to keep investigating not only the address issue but also information from the building that should have been provided by the freeholder. I have even contacted the land registry to investigate a bit further. I am still awaiting. Is this something normal? What else would you suggest I do?

  • I think the main thing to remember is that with property, nothing is normal. The simplest of transactions often turn out to be the most difficult and frustrating. Im not certain what issues you are referring to exactly so can’t comment further, however as long as both solicitors are looking in to the matter, its normally something which can be sorted out.
