There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in North Acton registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can differ according to the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry must send notices to any other parties. Currently roughly 80% of such applications are completed in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be extensive hold-ups. Registration occurs after the new owner is living at the property therefore post completion formalities is not always top priority yet where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your conveyancer could contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.

Here is a sample of a selection of leasehold new build enquiries that you may expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in North Acton

    There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. Please confirm the Lease plans are surveyor prepared. If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal.

Assuming the lease is recorded at the land registry - and 99.9% are in North Acton - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
