I bought a house in Cross Hands last 17/9/2020 and to date it is still not recorded with HM Land Registry. It is part of a development site and my lawyer told me that it may take over a year to complete the registration formalities. I have called the Land Registry directly and they have informed me the initial application was cancelled due to failure to reply to requisitions. Should I be concerned?
It is your conveyancer that you should get in touch with in order to satisfy any issues which have been raised as part of the registration process for your Cross Hands property. Normal Cross Hands conveyancing practice includes an undertaking on the part of the previous owner’s conveyancing practitioner that they will help resolve any requirements raised by HMLR so it may be a case of seeking to enforce that undertaking if necessary.
