    Hi,

    My construction of a granny flat is running out of schedule It's now in the 10th month. Can the notice to complete be issued by an Email myself? Will it stand legally? Or must it need a solicitor to do this?

    Is there any sample template or what I must mention in the notice if it can be done by myself?

    Thanks

    Check the contract with grannyflat. There would be provisions dealing with late completion.

    Yep, read your contract and follow it to the letter.

    Best to seek legal advice.

    The contract should have a completion date or x weeks from start. find that out first along legal advice. Also a list of delays and who the delays where caused by.

    Mine took 6 months but that was a house extension and reno Plus a granny flat.... And I thought that was long.

    Most granny flats take less than 3 months. What's going on with your one?

    I think it's a dispute which took a while to resolve or still unresolved.
