We're in Buckfastleigh, First time buyers purchasing with a mortgage (lender is Nationwide , and our solicitor is on the Nationwide conveyancing panel). How long should the conveyancing process take?
The fact that your lawyer is on the Nationwide conveyancing panel is a help. It would almost certainly delay matters if they were not. However, no conveyancer should guarantee a timeframe for your conveyancing, due to third parties outside of your control such as delays caused by lenders,conveyancing search providers or by the other side’s solicitors. The time taken is often determined by the number of parties in a chain.
I purchased my flat on 6 June and the transaction details are still not registered. Should I be concerned? My conveyancing solicitor in Buckfastleigh advises it should be recorded inside ten days. Are transfers in Buckfastleigh particularly slow to register?
There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Buckfastleigh registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timeframes can adjust depending on who lodges the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry communicate with any other parties. As of today approximately 80% of such applications are fully addressed in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be extensive delays. Registration occurs once the purchaser is living at the property thus 'speed' is not always primary concern but where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your solicitor could contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.
