I completed on my apartment on 11 October and my personal details are still not on the land registry website. Need I be worried? My conveyancing solicitor in Leeds advises it should be recorded in less than a month. Are properties in Leeds uniquely lengthy to register?
As far as conveyancing in Leeds is concerned, registration is no quicker or slower than the rest of England and Wales. Rather than based on location, timescales can adjust subject to the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry must send notices to any 3rd persons or bodies. At present roughly 80% of such applications are fully dealt with within 12 days but occasionally there can be extensive delays. Historically registration occurs after the purchaser has moved in to the premises thus 'speed' is not usually top priority yet if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your conveyancer can communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I put an offer in last month in what should have been a simple, no chain conveyancing. Leeds is where the house is located. Is there any guidance you can impart?
Flying freeholds in Leeds are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Leeds you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds very carefully. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Leeds may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.
