There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Heathfield registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timeframes can adjust subject to the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry need to notify any 3rd persons or bodies. Currently roughly three quarters of such applications are fully dealt with within 12 days but some can be subject to protracted delays. Registration takes place once the new owner has moved in to the premises thus 'speed' is not always primary concern yet where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your solicitor can communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.

Why do Heathfield conveyancing costs differ for leasehold and freehold properties?
When acquiring a leasehold property there is more work involved purely due to the fact that usually there are further parties involved in the form of the freeholder and/or Management Agents. As part of a lawyers enquiries they will check that all ground rent and service charges are paid up to date amongst other general leasehold matters. For this reason, the Sellers lawyers usually have to refer to the freeholder or Managing Agent for their replies to our questions. This may be time consuming and beyond the lawyers control
