As far as conveyancing in Leigh On Sea is concerned, registration is no quicker or slower than the rest of the country. Rather than based on location, timeframes can adjust according to the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry communicate with any third parties. As of today roughly 80% of such applications are fully addressed within two weeks but some can be subject to longer delays. Historically registration takes place once the new owner is living at the premises thus 'speed' is not typically top priority but where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your solicitor can contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.
I’m about to sell my 2 bed apartment in Leigh On Sea. Conveyancing lawyers have not yet been instructed, however I have recently received a yearly service charge invoice – what should I do?
Your conveyancing lawyer is likely to suggest that you should pay the invoice as you normally would as all rents and maintenance invoices will be allotted on completion, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process.
