Help to Buy Authority to Exchange Delays

New Build Inspections


New Member
Hi there my Authority to Exchange from help to buy was due 3rd January 2020 but still has not been approved as at today 3rd February 2020. I've been told this is due to their offices moving.

Is anyone else experiencing similar delays? What timeframe have others been approved in?

Yes, ours got delayed too which was the West Midlands office when they changed from orbit to some other company who are very inefficient and slow in processing. It used to be a 2 day process but now it takes at least 7 working days plus other delays etc. I tried to put a lot of pressure through my Solicitor and I'd recommend that if not your builder might start getting frustrated with the delay
