The normal practice is not to give notice for your tenancy until your lawyer suggests that you should. Assuming that you have not already done so, contact to your conveyancer and ask them to they chase the other lawyers, try to a target completion date that all parties will look to achieve

Your property lawyer should check the registered title as conveyancing in Borrowash can on occasion reveal restrictions in the title documents which restrict certain works or necessitated the consent of a 3rd party.

It would be sensible to check these things with a surveyor prior to committing yourself to a purchase.

I can not fathom if my lender obliges me to make sure the lease term for the flat is extended prior to the completion date. I have called my Borrowash bank branch on various occasions and was told they are content with the situation and they would lend. My Borrowash conveyancing solicitor - who is on the bank conveyancing panel- called and was told they will not lend based on their UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook minimum lease term requirements. Who do I believe?

Your lawyer has to comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook Part 2 conditions for your bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the lender will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the lender to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years left on the lease.

I purchased my apartment on 6 February and my personal details is not yet registered. Should I be concerned? My conveyancing solicitor in Borrowash expressed confidence that it would be recorded in less than a month. Are transfers in Borrowash uniquely lengthy to register?

There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Borrowash registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timeframes can vary according to the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry must send notices to any third persons or bodies. As of today roughly 80% of such applications are completed in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be protracted delays. Historically registration is effected once the new owner is living at the premises thus 'speed' is not typically an essential issue but where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your solicitor should communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.
