Just acquired a terraced house in Caddington , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to register the transfer to my name? My Caddington conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to be sure that my purchase is registered.
There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Caddington registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can vary depending on who lodges the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry must send notices to any interested parties. Currently roughly 80% of such applications are fully addressed in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be extensive hold-ups. Historically registration takes place once the buyer has moved in to the property thus an expedited registration is not typically primary concern yet if it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your lawyers must contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I put an offer in last month in what should have been a simple, no chain conveyancing. Caddington is where the house is located. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in Caddington are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Caddington you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Caddington may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.
