I bought my flat on 14 October and the transaction details are still not registered. Should I be concerned? My conveyancing solicitor in West Sussex advises it will be dealt with in a couple of weeks. Are properties in West Sussex uniquely lengthy to register?

As far as conveyancing in West Sussex registration is no faster or slower than anywhere else in the country. Rather than based on location, timescales can vary depending on who lodges the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry communicate with any interested persons or bodies. Currently approximately 80% of such applications are fully addressed in less than three weeks but some can be subject to longer hold-ups. Registration takes place once the buyer is living at the property so 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 lawyers should communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.

I am an executor of my recently deceased mum’s Will, with a house in West Sussex which will be sold. The house has never been registered at HMLR and I'm advised that many buyers solicitors will insist that it is in place before they'll proceed. What's the mechanism for this?

In the circumstances that you have set out it seems advisable to seek to register in the names of the personal representative(s) as named in the probate and in their capacity as PRs. HMLR’s online guidance explains how to register for the first time and what is required re the deeds and forms. You would need to include and certified copy of the probate as well and complete the form FR1 to refer to the PRs as the applicant.
