Have completed on a a terraced house in Saltdean , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to register my ownership? My Saltdean conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to check the registration formalities are concluded.
There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Saltdean registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timeframes can vary subject to who lodges the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry must send notices to any interested persons or bodies. As of today approximately 80% of such applications are completed in less than three weeks but some can be subject to extensive delays. Registration is effected once the new owner is living at the premises therefore registration formalities is not typically an essential issue but where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your lawyers can communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.

I am just shy of a 10% deposit on my flat purchase in Saltdean , but I am anxious exchange. Do I have options?
You can accept a lesser deposit. Most sellers will accept a lesser deposit or even no deposit for a first time buyer or 100% mortgage. Be aware though that if you fail to complete you will still need to hand over a minimum of 10% of the purchase price regardless of how much deposit was agreed.
You can also agree a simultaneous exchange and completion as no deposit is required for this however neither party will be tied in until completion actually takes place and it can be risky if sellers change their mind at the last moment
