As far as conveyancing in Truro registration is no quicker or slower than the rest of the country. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can vary subject to the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry must send notices to any other parties.

Historically registration takes place after the purchaser is living at the premises thus an expedited registration is not usually an essential issue but if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your lawyers should communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.
