Just acquired a detached house in Framlingham , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to record the transfer to my name? My Framlingham conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to be sure the land registry aspects are concluded.

As far as conveyancing in Framlingham registration is no quicker or slower than the rest of the country. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can differ depending on the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry have to notify any third parties. As of today in the region of 80% of submission are fully addressed within two weeks but occasionally there can be extensive hold-ups. Registration occurs once the new owner has moved in to the property so registration formalities is not typically top priority yet if 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 property I have offered on last month in what should have been a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Framlingham is where the house is located. Can you shed any light on this issue?

Flying freeholds in Framlingham are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Framlingham you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Framlingham may decide 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.

My father-in-law mentioned that when choosing a conveyancing lawyer they must be approved by your bank. I am novice purchaser but I have an offer in principle from HSBC and I already have a bricks and morter conveyancing lawyer in Framlingham at the ready. Does Virgin Money require an approved lawyer to be instructed? Does a list of panel conveyancers even exist so I can choose a conveyancing lawyer in Framlingham?

You need to choose a solicitor that is on the Virgin Money panel. The simplest thing to do is telephone your preferred Framlingham conveyancing lawyer and ask if they are on the Virgin Money panel. If they are not approved you have a number of alternatives available to you here:

  • Proceed with your existing Framlingham solicitor but Virgin Money will no doubt appoint a conveyancing practitioner on their approved panel. This will result in additional fees together with potential delay.
  • Choose a new conveyancing practitioner to act in the purchase, making sure they are on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel.
  • Convince your property lawyer to apply to join the bank panel.
