Absence of Statement of Reasons and Record of Proceedings – How to proceed?

Dear Colleagues,

I would be grateful for some advice on this issue.

The background is that following a First-tier Tribunal Hearing in May 2021, a SORs and ROPs was requested as we were unhappy with the decision and wanted to consider seeking permission to appeal to the UT. The SORs and ROPs have yet to be produced. We have been in touch with the Tribunals Service to chase this up and have been told that the matter is still with the judge. As it is now at least 5 months since the requests was made, the delay seems unreasonable. I am thinking this may be enough for the decision made at the Hearing to be set aside.

I would welcome thoughts on how to proceed, and the legal basis for such an approach.
