You have limited options available to you. Given that you are taking out a loan with a bank your property lawyer has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your lawyer would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your bank’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook requirements . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Carlisle conveyancing searches.

Historically registration is effected once the purchaser is living at the premises so 'speed' is not usually top priority yet if it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your solicitor could contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.
