Just bought a terraced house in Spondon , how long will it take for the Land Registry to record my title? My Spondon conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to be sure the registration is addressed.

As of today in the region of three quarters of submission are fully addressed in less than three weeks but some can be subject to extensive delays. Historically registration is effected once the purchaser has moved in to the premises so an expedited registration is not typically top priority yet if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your conveyancer can communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.
