Have purchased a a terraced house in Little Hulton , how long should it take for the Land Registry to register my title? My Little Hulton conveyancing solicitor has been painfully slow, so I want to be certain that my name is registered.
There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Little Hulton registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can adjust subject to the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry have to notify any other persons or bodies. As of today approximately 80% of submission are completed in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be protracted hold-ups. Registration occurs after the new owner has moved in to the property so post completion formalities is not usually top priority but if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your lawyers could communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.

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

The lease governs the relationship between the landlord and you the leaseholder; in particular, it will say if subletting is prohibited, or permitted but only subject to certain caveats. The rule is that if the lease contains no expres ban or restriction, subletting is permitted. Most leases in Little Hulton do not prevent an absolute prevention of subletting – such a clause would undoubtedly devalue the property. Instead, there is usually a basic requirement that the owner notifies the freeholder, possibly supplying a copy of the sublease.
