I am in the process of purchasing a new build apartment. My solicitor has notified me of a unilateral notice which registers an interest of a previous purchase that became abortive.
The vendors solicitor has confirmed this, but is unwilling to take an undertaking (a legal promise I take it) to have it removed only that they are undertaking to make an application to get it removed as they are not the land registry.
As the buyer my solicitor has recommended to only proceed if the vendor solicitor provided a proper undertaking that it will be removed (not only an application) or they wait until it is removed under the normal cancellation procedure which can take 15 working days if there is no objection from the beneficiary highlighted in the notice.
Have any other landlords proceeded with a purchase with a notice of this kind on the register?
