Have purchased a a detached house in Ilkeston , how long should it take for the Land Registry to deal with the formalities evidencing my ownership? My Ilkeston conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to be certain that my purchase is recorded.
As far as conveyancing in Ilkeston registration is no faster or slower than the rest of England and Wales. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can differ according to the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry communicate with any other persons or bodies. As of today in the region of three quarters of submission are completed within two weeks but some can be subject to extensive hold-ups. Registration occurs once the new owner has moved in to 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 solicitor must contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.
I'm purchasing my first flat in Ilkeston with a loan from Leeds Building Society. The builders would not budge the amount so I negotiated 6k of fixtures and fittings instead.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

Last July I purchased a leasehold property in Ilkeston. Am I liable to pay service charges for periods before my ownership?
Where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous owner and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. However, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. A critical element of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to ensure to have an up to date clear service charge receipt before completion of your purchase. If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.
If you purchase part way through an accounting year you may be liable for charges not yet demanded even if they relate to a period prior to your purchase. In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).
