I moved into my home on 9 March and my personal details are still not registered. Any reason for this? My conveyancing solicitor in Queensbury said it would be recorded inside ten days. Are properties in Queensbury uniquely lengthy to register?

As far as conveyancing in Queensbury is concerned, registration is no quicker or slower than anywhere else in England and Wales. Rather than based on location, timeframes can vary subject to who lodges the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry need to notify any third persons or bodies. At present roughly three quarters of submission are fully dealt with within two weeks but some can be subject to protracted hold-ups. Historically registration is effected after the purchaser has moved in to the property thus 'speed' is not usually top priority yet if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your lawyers can contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.
