Have completed on a a semi-detached house in Dereham , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to register my ownership? My Dereham conveyancing solicitor has been painfully slow, so I want to be certain that my ownership is recorded.
There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Dereham registration formalities. 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 need to notify any other persons or bodies. As of today approximately three quarters of submission are fully addressed in less than three weeks but some can be subject to extensive hold-ups. Registration takes place once the new owner has moved in to the property therefore an expedited registration is not always an essential issue but if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your conveyancer can contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.
How does conveyancing in Dereham differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Dereham approach us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is constructed. This is because builders in Dereham typically purchase the real estate, 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 conveyancers 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 Dereham or who has acted in the same development.
