Have purchased a a detached house in Cross Hands , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to record my ownership? My Cross Hands conveyancing solicitor has been very slow, so I want to be certain the post completion formalities are addressed.

There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Cross Hands registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timeframes can adjust subject to the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry must send notices to any interested persons or bodies. As of today in the region of 80% of such applications are fully addressed within 12 days but occasionally there can be longer hold-ups. Registration takes place once the new owner is living at the premises thus an expedited registration is not usually top priority but if it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your conveyancer should contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I put an offer in last month in what should have been a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Cross Hands is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?

Flying freeholds in Cross Hands are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Cross Hands you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds very carefully. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Cross Hands may ascertain 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.
