We're in Oval, FTBs buying with a mortgage (lender is Principality , and our lawyer is on the Principality conveyancing panel). How long should the conveyancing process take?
The fact that your lawyer is on the Principality conveyancing panel is a help. It would almost certainly delay matters if they were not. However, no solicitor should guarantee a timeframe for your conveyancing, due to third parties outside of your control such as delays caused by lenders,conveyancing search providers or by the other side’s solicitors. The time taken is often determined by the number of parties in a chain.
Just bought a terraced house in Oval , how long should it take for the Land Registry to deal with the formalities evidencing my title? My Oval conveyancing solicitor has been very slow, so I want to be certain that my name is recorded.
As far as conveyancing in Oval registration is no faster or slower than the rest of England and Wales. Rather than based on location, timeframes can differ according to who lodges the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry must send notices to any other parties. At present approximately 80% of such applications are fully addressed within two weeks but some can be subject to protracted hold-ups. Registration occurs once the new owner is living at the property therefore 'speed' is not usually top priority yet where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your solicitor can contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.
Due to the guidance of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a house in Oval prior to instructing lawyers. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold overhang to the house. My surveyor has said that some lenders tend not issue a mortgage on such a house.
It varies from the lender to lender. Santander has different requirements from Halifax. If you e-mail us we can check via the appropriate bank. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Oval. Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.

My step-mother purchased her house in Oval 7 years past. She has been married, widowed and in recent months got remarried. She now intends to the sell the Oval property. I think she will just be asked to supply copies of the marriage papers to the solicitor but she is anxious it will frustrate the sale of the property. Should she instruct a property lawyer to update the land title documents for the house?
You are not required to bring up to date the register as long as you have the proof required to demonstrate how the name change resulted.
The buyer’s conveyancer should examine the title information and need evidence to prove the name change for example marriage documentation.
