I acquired my home on 6 October and the transaction details are still not on the land registry website. Any reason for this? My conveyancing solicitor in Frodsham expressed confidence that it would be dealt with in less than a month. Are titles in Frodsham uniquely lengthy to register?
As far as conveyancing in Frodsham registration is no quicker or slower than the rest of the country. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes 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 persons or bodies. At present in the region of three quarters of such applications are fully dealt with in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be extensive delays. Registration takes place once the new owner is living at the property therefore an expedited registration is not always top priority but where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your conveyancer could communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.
How does conveyancing in Frodsham differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Frodsham contact us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is completed. This is because developers in Frodsham typically purchase the site, 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 property lawyers 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Frodsham or who has acted in the same development.
What does commercial conveyancing in Frodsham cover?
Non domestic conveyancing in Frodsham covers a broad range of guidance, supplied by qualified solicitors, relating to business premises.

Commercial conveyancing solicitors can also offer advice on the sale of business assets, commercial loans and the termination of leases.
Should I instruct a Frodsham conveyancing practitioner who is local to the property I am buying? We have a good friend who can deal with the conveyancing but her office is 400kilometers away.
The primary upside of using a local Frodsham conveyancing firm is that you can pop in to sign paperwork, deliver your ID and pester them if necessary. They will also have local insight which is a bonus. However it's more important to get someone that will do a good and efficient job. If you know people who instructed your friend and they were content that must trump using an unknown Frodsham conveyancing solicitor solely due to them being Frodsham based.
