It is is a decade since I bought my home in Marske and Upleatham. Conveyancing solicitors have just been retained on the sale but I am unable to find my title deeds. Is this a major issue?
Don’t worry too much. Firstly there is a chance that the deeds will be retained by the mortgage company or they could be archived with the solicitor who handled the purchase. Secondly in all probability the land will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you are the registered owner by your conveyancing solicitors acquiring current official copies of the land registers. Almost all conveyancing in Marske and Upleatham relates to registered property but in the unlikely event that your property is unregistered it adds to the complexity but is not insurmountable.
I acquired my home on 5 January and my personal details is not yet registered. Need I be worried? My conveyancing solicitor in Marske and Upleatham said it would be concluded in less than a month. Are transfers in Marske and Upleatham particularly slow to register?
There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Marske and Upleatham registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timescales can differ depending on the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry must send notices to any third persons or bodies. Currently in the region of 80% of submission are completed within 12 days but some can be subject to longer hold-ups. Registration is effected once the buyer is living at the property so 'speed' is not usually an essential issue yet if it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your conveyancer can speak with the land registry and explain the circumstances.

We're novice buyers - agreed a price, yet the selling agent advised that the seller will only go ahead if we appoint the agent's preferred conveyancers as they want an ‘expedited deal’. My instinct tells me that we should use a family solicitor used to conveyancing in Marske and Upleatham
It is highly unlikely the sellers are behind this. Should the seller want ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a motivated buyer is not the way to achieve this. Avoid the agents and go straight to the sellers and explain that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are ready to progress, with finances arranged © you do not need to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)however you intend to appoint your own,trusted Marske and Upleatham conveyancing firm - rather thanthe ones that will give their negotiator at the agency a referral fee or hit his conveyancing thresholds pre-set by head office.
I have been told by many family members that it may take 6-8 weeks for Marske and Upleatham conveyancing to complete.This was 3 ago. The paperwork was only received from the vendors conveyancing practitioner yesterday so now does it countdown?
You need to be realistic concerning timelines. Moving home in Marske and Upleatham takes on average about two months. This timeframe is not because conveyancing practitioner are slow and willfully delay matters. The level of money involved in purchasing any residence is so high, the buyer’s conveyancing practitioner having to raise a wide range of queries, searches and other checks to protect the purchaser and their lender (if there is to be a mortgage) from expensive, avoidable problems. These checks involves obtaining information from an array of different parties, for example other conveyancer, local councils, private companies, lenders. Some of these are well organised. Others are not. It is worth noting that, it doesn't matter how quickly your solicitor do their part, if the people you are buying from or are selling to aren't ready, nothing can move forward until they are up to speed.
