Thanks Nigel & everyone else for your replies

I have a couple of bits of paper that has the numbers on, I will take them to the land registry and see how we go.

Hi Fizzbowl,

The Land Registry will have a copy of your contract (providing the developer/your lawyer lodged it with them). Get the details of the plot, etc - and visit the Land Registry.

Can I ask why you took delivery of the property without electricity?

We need this document to prove we own the house which has been paid in full and to prove to all the authorities that we actually own the property.

Actually fizbowl you don't actually own the house untill you get your title deeds .

It still belongs to the developer untill you get that all important bit of paper from the land registry.

Your lawyer who acted for you will have a copy (I hope that you did not use the same lawyer as the developers!). If that is no good, then the contract should have been stamped and deposited in the land registry. Your lawyer will have a yellow piece of paper from them with the deposit number on it. You then ask the land registry if they can give you a copy - you may have to pay some photocopying charges to them.

If it has not been stamped and deposited then you have a problem.
