Do not opt for the cheapest Newent conveyancing quote. You really do get what you’re paying for when it comes to conveyancing solicitors. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you know exactly what you’ll have to pay in ahead of the deal.

I got the keys to my flat on 5 November and the transaction details is yet to be registered. Need I be worried? My conveyancing solicitor in Newent advises it should be formalised in less than a month. Are properties in Newent uniquely lengthy to register?

There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Newent registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can adjust depending on the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry must send notices to any 3rd persons or bodies. As of today approximately 80% of submission are completed in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be extensive delays. Historically registration occurs once the purchaser has moved in to the premises so an expedited registration is not usually primary concern yet where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your conveyancer should communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.
