Just acquired a terraced house in Great Barr , how long will it take for the Land Registry to record the transfer to my name? My Great Barr conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to be sure that my ownership is registered.

As far as conveyancing in Great Barr is concerned, registration is no quicker or slower than the rest of England and Wales. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can adjust depending on the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry need to notify any other parties. As of today approximately three quarters of submission are completed within 12 days but occasionally there can be extensive delays. Historically registration is effected after the new owner is living at the premises thus an expedited registration is not typically primary concern but if it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your lawyers must communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.

I am purchasing my first flat in Great Barr with a loan from Nottingham Building Society. The builders refused to budge the amount so I negotiated £7000 of extras instead.

We are planning to purchase a four bedroom maisonettein Great Barr with a loan from a lender. We wish to instruct our conveyancer in Great Barr yet our mortgage company advise he's not on their "panel". It seems we have little choice but to instruct from the our mortgage company panel firms or keep our Great Barr solicitor and incur the extra fees for one of their panel ones to represent them. We feel as though this is unjust; Can we not simply insist that our bank use our Great Barr lawyer?

No, not really. The mortgage company mortgage offered to you is subject to its terms and conditions, one of which will be that solicitors will on the bank's conveyancing panel. in the past, most banks had large numbers of law firms on their panels, including many conveyancing solicitors in Great Barr : a borrower could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. A further alternative is for your solicitors to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for your lender.
