Just acquired a terraced house in Spennymoor , how long should it take for the Land Registry to record my proprietorship? My Spennymoor conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to be sure the registration is addressed.
There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Spennymoor registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can differ according to who lodges the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry must send notices to any other persons or bodies. At present roughly 80% of such applications are fully dealt with in less than three weeks but some can be subject to longer delays. Registration takes place once the buyer has moved in to the premises therefore an expedited registration is not typically an essential issue yet where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your lawyers must speak with the land registry and explain the circumstances.
