There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Hull West registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can vary depending on who lodges the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry must send notices to any interested parties. Currently roughly three quarters of submission are completed within 12 days but occasionally there can be protracted hold-ups. Historically registration takes place once the purchaser has moved in to the property therefore post completion formalities is not usually top priority yet if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your conveyancer should contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.
I am looking for a ground for flat up to £195,000 and found one close by in Hull West I like with open areas and transport links in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 61 years on the lease. There is not much else in Hull West in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?
Should you need a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term may be an issue. Reduce the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the property for at least 2 years you may ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer about this matter.
