Have completed on a a detached house in Hull North , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to deal with the formalities evidencing my ownership? My Hull North conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to be certain the registration is addressed.
As far as conveyancing in Hull North registration is no faster or slower than anywhere else in the country.

You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.
