Just acquired a terraced house in Chelmsford , how long will it take for the Land Registry to deal with the formalities evidencing the transfer to my name? My Chelmsford conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to be certain that my name is recorded.

As far as conveyancing in Chelmsford is concerned, registration is no faster or slower than anywhere else in the country. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can differ depending on the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry have to notify any third parties. Currently approximately 80% of such applications are fully addressed in less than three weeks but some can be subject to longer delays. Historically registration is effected after the new owner has moved in to the premises thus post completion formalities is not typically an essential issue but where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your lawyers must communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.

Even where you use a solicitor outside Chelmsford you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Chelmsford may determine 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.
