I completed on my apartment on 2 June and the transaction details are still not on the land registry website. Any reason for this? My conveyancing solicitor in Longhope said it should be concluded in less than a month. Are transfers in Longhope particularly slow to register?

There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Longhope registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can vary subject to the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry need to notify any interested persons or bodies. At present approximately three quarters of such applications are fully dealt with within 12 days but occasionally there can be extensive delays. Registration takes place once the purchaser is living at the premises therefore 'speed' is not typically top priority yet if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your solicitor should communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.

I'm buying my first flat in Longhope with the aid of help to buy. The developers refused to move on the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of extras instead.

I am a negotiator for a busy estate agent office in Longhope where we have experienced a few flat sales jeopardised due to short leases. I have received conflicting advice from local Longhope conveyancing firms. Please can you shed some light as to whether the owner of a flat can commence the lease extension process for the buyer?

Provided that the seller has owned the lease for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to start the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. This means that the buyer can avoid having to sit tight for 2 years for a lease extension. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment has to be done before, or at the same time as completion of the disposal of the property.

An alternative approach is to agree the lease extension with the freeholder either before or after the sale. If you are informally negotiating there are no rules and so you cannot insist on the landlord agreeing to grant an extension or transferring the benefit of an agreement to the buyer.
