[[ http://www.mumsnet.com/Talk/property/1695757-Gaaahhhh-I-knew-this-was-going-to-happen-No-planning-permission-building-regs Here is my first thread about this]].
Vendor is now saying he wont pay the indemnity insurance. It is £76!! I am so annoyed with him. Don't know what to do next. Call his bluff or just swallow the 76 quid. We are still waiting for the solicitors report with the results of searches but aside from that we are close to exchange. No other houses in the area that suit.
But tallulah in the end he didn't get planning permission and building regs and he should have done. So we are taking a bit of a gamble tbh. The council could technically come after us (unlikely but not impossible) and get us to pull it down. It could have been badly built (again unlikely). So if he is angry at us he is a bit of an arsehole tbh.
Either way I am going to pay it. Still pisses me off. Especially since he didn't mention these extensions and the lack of documentation at any point until we brought it up this far down the line (partially solicitors faults admittedly).
Our vendor is being a pain too He suggested wednesday to exchange with friday to complete (today). I did all the money and sent it etc and now our solicitor says they are not answering! We are in rented so its not vital we complete today but I need to get the keys from the agent which is in another town about 20 miles away! I would in your situation probably pay the 76 to end the stress!
Looking at the other thread, iI you are not prepared to pay £76 as one of the costs to buy that house, you should not proceed. This situation is not unique and you should not feel that strong about it. Remember, you are buying a home, not doing a favour to your vendor by buying his property.
