We are currently in the process of buying a plot on a Avenue of approximately 57 houses.
All properties are supplied services via a verge at the frontage approx. 500mm from their boundary lines.
Our time scale to date is now over 1.5 years to obtain rights of way, finance etc.
We now face the possibility of losing the land and monies committed due to this time scale.
The issue we now nave is that we do not have a deed to access the services but do have one for vehicle access to the site.
We will be building onto the verge for a driveway.
As the distance is so small will it be necessary to obtain a deed ?
We are considering to instruct our solicitors to go ahead with the exchange with the knowledge that all other dwelling on the avenue have services connected via the verge I know this does not seem wise but we are holding on to our dream as much as we can.
Any help and advice would be greatly appreciated.
