We're in Redland, First timers buying with a mortgage (lender is Skipton , and our lawyer is on the Skipton conveyancing panel). How long should the conveyancing process take?
The fact that your lawyer is on the Skipton conveyancing panel is a help. It would almost certainly delay matters if they were not. However, no property lawyer 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.

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.

My step-mother completed her conveyancing in Redland in 2006. She has been married, divorced and in recent months got married again. She intends to market the house next autumn. I think she will just be asked to supply copies of the marriage papers to the conveyancing practitioner however she is concerned it will frustrate the conveyancing. Is it worth updating the Land Registry documents for the property?
It is not absolutely necessary to bring up to date the title for the property on the basis that you have the proof needed to show how the change of name resulted.
Any purchaser’s conveyancing practitioner will examine the land registry details and require evidence to establish the name change e.g. marriage certificates.
