I acquired my flat on 3 April and my personal details is not yet registered. Need I be worried? My conveyancing solicitor in Emerson Park said it will be concluded in less than a month. Are transfers in Emerson Park particularly slow to register?
As far as conveyancing in Emerson Park is concerned, registration is no quicker or slower than the rest of England and Wales. Rather than based on location, timeframes can adjust depending on who lodges the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry have to notify any interested parties. As of today roughly three quarters of such applications are fully dealt with in less than three weeks but some can be subject to protracted delays. Historically registration is effected after the new owner is living at the property so an expedited registration is not always an essential issue yet where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your conveyancer should communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.
Last October I purchased a leasehold property in Emerson Park. Do I have any liability for service charges relating to a period prior to my ownership?
In a situation where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous owner and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. However, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. It is an essential part of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to be sure to have an up to date clear service charge receipt before completion of your purchase. If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.
If you purchase part way through an accounting year you may be liable for charges not yet demanded even if they relate to a period prior to your purchase. In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).
