It is 10 years ago since I purchased my property in Coven. Conveyancing lawyers have now been appointed on the sale but I am unable to find my title documents. Will this cause complications?
You need not be too concerned. First there is a possibility that the deeds will be retained by the lender or they may stored with the solicitor who acted in the purchase. Secondly the chances are that the title will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you own the property by your conveyancing solicitors acquiring up to date copy of the land registers. Almost all conveyancing in Coven relates to registered property but in the rare situation where your property is unregistered it adds to the complexity but is not insurmountable.

Have purchased a a detached house in Coven , how long will it take for the Land Registry to record my ownership? My Coven conveyancing solicitor has been very slow, so I want to be sure the registration is concluded.
As far as conveyancing in Coven registration is no quicker or slower than the rest of England and Wales. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can differ depending on who lodges the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry communicate with any other parties. At present in the region of 80% of such applications are completed within two weeks but some can be subject to longer hold-ups. Historically registration is effected once the purchaser is living at the property so 'speed' is not usually primary concern yet if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your conveyancer can speak with the land registry and explain the circumstances.
How does conveyancing in Coven differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Coven come to us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is ready to move into. This is because builders in Coven typically 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 used to new build conveyancing in Coven or who has acted in the same development.
