A friend recommended that where I am buying in Alsager I should carry out a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. Can you explain what the purpose of this search is?
A search of this type is usually quoted for as part of the standard Alsager conveyancing searches. It is a large document of about 40 pages, listing and setting out important information about Alsager around the property and the people living there. It includes an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the local Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the demographics of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average Property Price, Crime statistics, Alsager Education with plans and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful information concerning Alsager.
I acquired my home on 8 January and my personal details are still not registered. Should I be concerned? My conveyancing solicitor in Alsager said it will be registered in a couple of weeks. Are titles in Alsager uniquely lengthy to register?
As far as conveyancing in Alsager is concerned, registration is no faster or slower than anywhere else in the country. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can vary according to the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry must send notices to any interested persons or bodies. Currently in the region of three quarters of submission are completed in less than three weeks but some can be subject to extensive hold-ups. Historically registration occurs once the purchaser has moved in to the property so 'speed' is not usually primary concern but if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your solicitor could speak with the land registry and explain the circumstances.

Please provide evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry. Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified. Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision.
