Just bought a detached house in Thornhill , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to register the transfer to my name? My Thornhill conveyancing solicitor has been painfully slow, so I want to be certain the post completion formalities are dealt with.

There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Thornhill registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can adjust subject to who lodges the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry need to notify any third persons or bodies. Currently approximately three quarters of such applications are completed within 12 days but occasionally there can be protracted hold-ups. Historically registration is effected after the new owner is living at the property thus an expedited registration is not always an essential issue yet if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your conveyancer could communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.
