There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Bridlington registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timeframes can vary depending on the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry communicate with any other persons or bodies. Currently in the region of 80% of such applications are completed in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be longer hold-ups. Historically registration takes place once the purchaser has moved in to the property so post completion formalities is not usually primary concern but where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your solicitor should contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.

Estate agents have just been given the go-ahead to market my basement apartment in Bridlington. Conveyancing lawyers have not yet been instructed, but I have recently had a quarterly service charge invoice – what should I do?

It best that you clear the maintenance contribution as normal given that all rents and maintenance invoices will be allotted as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.
