I've got a bit of a problem here, I applied for a LSAP approx 2 months ago, but as I'm detached from my unit I've not been able to chase the paperwork around other than phone calls every now and then. problem is, it seems my clerk "lost" my application for nearly a month, while telling me it was on the colonel's desk. meanwhile I've coughed nearly a grand in fees/surveys etc. now if the old dear I'm buying the house from found out it could take another 2 months to complete shed have a fit and pull out, putting the house back on the market, so to ensure I don't lose the house and the Â£1000 already spent, I've had to borrow a short term 5k deposit from my bank costing me 1.60 per day interest until the LSAP hits my solicitor who will then pay me rather than my mortgage lender who now has their deposit. I'm aware this is dodgy ground but like I've said, this could cost me the house and everything I've coughed up because of my inadequate clerks losing paperwork. can anyone tell me how long I can expect to wait for jpac or whoever to process my application?
