Solictor providing us with documents

We are in the process of buying a house and are getting close to the point of exchange. I don't think either parties' solicitor has been particularly efficient as we have just received the property information pack which the seller filled in on 15 September! And also just received the queries raised by our solicitor on 11 October. We are not that bothered as we are not in a rush, however I was confused as the seller indicated on the above correspondence that a bunch of documents were enclosed, things like electricity & gas certificate, warranty on windows etc. However, we have not been provided with the copies, instead our solicitor has indicated we will only get to see these on completion: is that normal? I guess it's his job to check and make sure he is happy we have received everything, however I am sure in previous purchases we received these ahead of the time?

  • Your solicitor should pass on copies of the documents if they have been received. It may be that the originals will only be provided on completion but there is no excuse for not providing copies for your inspection.

  • At the very least you should receive copies, and you should check originals will be supplied when the matter completes.Warranties should be checked are still valid. Good luck Owen
