Have purchased a a detached house in Shoreditch , how long should it take for the Land Registry to deal with the formalities evidencing my ownership? My Shoreditch conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to check the registration is dealt with.
As far as conveyancing in Shoreditch registration is no quicker or slower than the rest of England and Wales. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can adjust subject to the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry must send notices to any interested persons or bodies.

My sealed bid on property in Shoreditch has been agreed to, but there is a chain. The sellers have submitted an offer on a property, however it’s not been accepted yet, and has viewings of other apartments in the pipeline. I have instructed a local conveyancing lawyer in Shoreditch. What do I do now? At what point should I apply for the mortgage with Principality?
It is standard to have apprehensions where there is an associated chain given your reluctance to be too out of pocket prematurely (mortgage application is approx one thousand pounds, then valuation, Shoreditch conveyancing search charges, etc). The first course of action is to check that your solicitor is on the Principality conveyancing panel. Concerning the next phase this very much dictated by the specifics of your transaction, desire for the property and on the state of the market. In a buoyant market the majority of buyers will apply for a home loan with Principality and pay for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they ask their property lawyer to move forward with the conveyancing in Shoreditch.
