My partner and I are downsizing from our house in Becontree and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being constructed land that was not decontaminated. Any local conveyancer would know that there is no such problem.

I acquired my apartment on 1 March and my personal details is not yet on the land registry website. Should I be concerned? My conveyancing solicitor in Becontree expressed confidence that it would be concluded inside ten days. Are properties in Becontree uniquely lengthy to register?

There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Becontree registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can differ depending on who lodges the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry communicate with any interested persons or bodies. Currently approximately 80% of submission are fully dealt with in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be protracted hold-ups. Historically registration occurs after the new owner is living at the property so 'speed' is not typically top priority yet where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your solicitor should speak with the land registry and explain the circumstances.

Due to the advice of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Becontree in advance of retaining solicitors. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold aspect to the property. The surveyor advised that some banks may refuse to grant a mortgage on such a premises.

I was advised by a few estate agents in Becontree to select a property lawyer on your site. What’s the financial upside for Estate Agents to promote your site ahead of alternative conveyancing organisations?

We don’t make any financial incentive for sending work to this site. We thought it would be too underhand a fee as members of the public would think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I getting any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.
