I got the keys to my apartment on 2 October and the transaction details is not yet on the land registry website. Any reason for this? My conveyancing solicitor in Tottenham advises it will be dealt with inside ten days. Are titles in Tottenham uniquely lengthy to register?
There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Tottenham registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timeframes can differ depending on the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry need to notify any third parties.

Historically registration is effected after the new owner has moved in to the property thus an expedited registration is not always top priority yet where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your conveyancer must communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on two weeks back in what should have been a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. Tottenham is where the house is located. Can you offer any advice?
Flying freeholds in Tottenham are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Tottenham you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Tottenham may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.
