Unfortunately both you and your lawyer have little choice here. As you are taking a home loan with a mortgage company your conveyancing practitioner has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your lawyer would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your bank’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to comply with the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook specifications . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Thornton Cleveleys conveyancing searches.

There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Thornton Cleveleys registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can vary depending on the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry must send notices to any third persons or bodies. Currently roughly 80% of submission are completed within 12 days but some can be subject to extensive hold-ups. Historically registration occurs once the purchaser is living at the property therefore an expedited registration is not typically an essential issue but where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your conveyancer should communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.

If you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the property for at least twenty four months you can ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer about this.
