Have completed on a a semi-detached house in Nottinghamshire , how long will it take for the Land Registry to record the transfer to my name? My Nottinghamshire conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to be sure the registration is concluded.

As far as conveyancing in Nottinghamshire is concerned, registration is no faster or slower than the rest of England and Wales. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can vary subject to who lodges the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry communicate with any 3rd parties. At present in the region of three quarters of such applications are fully dealt with within two weeks but occasionally there can be protracted hold-ups.

How does conveyancing in Nottinghamshire differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Nottinghamshire approach us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is finished. This is because new home sellers in Nottinghamshire typically purchase the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Nottinghamshire or who has acted in the same development.

I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £195,000 and found one close by in Nottinghamshire I like with amenity areas and transport links nearby, however it only has 49 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Nottinghamshire suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a short lease?

If you require a home loan that many years will likely be problematic. Discount the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you could ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer concerning this matter.
