87.

In regard to the case in question, Revenue has confirmed that there was no unnecessary delay in processing the application. Revenue did however make direct contact with the person’s co-purchaser in relation to a matter in respect of the claim.  The matter was subsequently resolved by the co-purchaser and the HTB application was immediately approved and processed.
