I purchased my flat on 8 October and the transaction details are still not registered. Need I be worried? My conveyancing solicitor in Chaddesden said it should be formalised in a couple of weeks. Are transfers in Chaddesden particularly slow to register?
As far as conveyancing in Chaddesden is concerned, registration is no faster or slower than anywhere else in England and Wales. Rather than based on location, timescales can differ depending on the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry have to notify any interested parties. Currently approximately 80% of submission are fully dealt with within 12 days but some can be subject to longer delays. Historically registration is effected after the buyer has moved in to the property so an expedited registration is not always an essential issue yet if it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your conveyancer can contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.
How does conveyancing in Chaddesden differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Chaddesden approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is ready to move into. This is because new home sellers in Chaddesden usually purchase the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Chaddesden or who has acted in the same development.
How can the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 affect my business offices in Chaddesden and how can your lawyers assist?
The particular law that you refer to affords protection to business tenants, granting the a statutory right to apply to court for a renewal tenancy and remain in occupation at the end of the lease term. There are limited grounds where a landlord can refrain from granting a lease renewal and the rules are complicated. Fees are different for commercial conveyancing.

Is it best to go with a Chaddesden conveyancing solicitor who is local to the property I am purchasing? I have an old university friend who can carry out the legal formalities but his firm is located over three hundred miles away.
The primary upside of using a local Chaddesden conveyancing firm is that you can visit the firm to execute paperwork, hand in your identification documents and apply pressure on them if necessary. They will also have local insight which is a plus. That being said it's more important to get someone that will do a good and efficient job. If other friends have instructed your friend and in the main were happy that must surpass using an unfamiliar Chaddesden conveyancing lawyer solely due to them being based in the area.
