Rather than based on location, timescales can adjust depending on the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry must send notices to any other parties. Currently in the region of three quarters of submission are fully dealt with in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be protracted delays. Historically registration is effected after the buyer has moved in to the premises so 'speed' is not always an essential issue yet where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your solicitor must communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.

They will also have local insight which is a plus. That being said nothing is more important than finding someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If if people you trust used your friend and on the whole were content that should surpass using an unfamiliar Canton conveyancing lawyer just because they are Canton based.
