As far as conveyancing in Eaglescliffe is concerned, registration is no faster or slower than the rest of the country. Rather than based on location, timeframes can differ depending on who lodges the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry communicate with any interested persons or bodies. As of today approximately three quarters of submission are fully dealt with in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be protracted delays. Historically registration occurs after the purchaser is living at the property so an expedited registration is not typically top priority but if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your solicitor can contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £305k and found one near me in Eaglescliffe I like with amenity areas and transport links in the vicinity, however it's only got 61 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Eaglescliffe in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?

Should you require a home loan that many years may be an issue. Discount the price by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the property for at least 2 years you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer about this matter.
