Just bought a terraced house in Fetcham , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to register my proprietorship? My Fetcham conveyancing solicitor has been painfully slow, so I want to check the registration formalities are addressed.
As far as conveyancing in Fetcham registration is no quicker or slower than the rest of the country. Rather than based on location, timescales can vary subject to the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry must send notices to any third parties. At present roughly three quarters of submission are fully dealt with within two weeks but occasionally there can be longer delays. Registration occurs once the new owner is living at the premises so an expedited registration is not always an essential issue yet where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your conveyancer could contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I have offered on a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a quick, chain free conveyancing. Fetcham is the location of the property. Can you offer any opinion?
Flying freeholds in Fetcham are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Fetcham you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Fetcham 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 premises.
