I am in the process of buying a house.. I have been asked by surveyor if the roads/footpaths and services have been taken in charge of by the County Council... I have been informed that the County Council have not taken them over by they are in the advanced stages (which could take months) The estate only has 4 houses it just comprises of a small road into the estate and 2 street lamps.. Each house has its own septic tank there is no management company as there is no green are etc.. However there are footpaths. My questions is can a sale fall through based on this?
