As of today approximately three quarters of such applications are fully dealt with in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be longer delays. Historically registration occurs once the buyer is living at the property therefore registration formalities is not always an essential issue but if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your solicitor can communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.
