There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Heaton registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timeframes can differ subject to who lodges the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry need to notify any 3rd parties. As of today in the region of three quarters of submission are fully dealt with within 12 days but occasionally there can be longer delays. Registration is effected after the new owner is living at the premises so an expedited registration is not always top priority yet if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your lawyers must speak with the land registry and explain the circumstances.

I am looking for a ground for flat up to £305k and found one close by in Heaton I like with amenity areas and station nearby, however it's only got 61 years on the lease.

Should you need a home loan the shortness of the lease will likely be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer about this.

How does one remove a departed person's name from the title deeds for a property in Heaton?

Where a Heaton property is jointly owned and one of the owners dies, their name will not immediately be removed from the title deeds. You are not required to remove their name as in the event of a disposal your lawyer would simply need to supply proof as to the reason the other proprietor is missing from the contract, such as a grant of probate.

With a view to making things simpler in the future you may arrange to have the deceased name removed from the title register by submitting an application to the land registry with proof of the death. There is no land registry fee payable.
