Alan - the application is still with us as we complete wider checks. I would not expect those to be completed until the end of the month.
The lodging solicitor has been in touch and is also aware

Hi Adam, Is there anything I can do to push this forward. There is a sale pending on this.

Alan - I'm afraid not. The wider checks are in part necessary from a fraud/security perspective and are time-sensitive. Whilst they could complete sooner that is not within our or your gift to achieve I'm afraid.

Hi Adam, Not your fault, but Time-sensitive...?  Taking over a month for an expedited application to have a simple transfer of title within a shared ownership property. Especially, with it being transferred to one of the original parties on the title, it does not seem an area where mastermind criminals are planning their evil empire from. We have a chain and this is causing major issues and we may lose a house.

Alan - I understand the issues raised and frustration caused but these wider checks have to be completed as part of the registration process. 
The application was submitted on the 1st Nov. We started the checks on the 5th Nov. Such applications are not expedited as a result. And the wider checks cannot be expedited or sped up as explained.

Hi Adam, 

Nationwide has confirmed that they have now contacted the Land Registry and confirmed they have no interest or title on the above property. Could you please provide an update for the transfer.

Many thanks

Alan - looks like they have responded and the details added to the application this morning. I'll check in with the processing office re remaining timescales and post again once I know more. 
In my experience with an expedited application we will generally refer and reconsider it again within 24hrs
