Have purchased a a terraced house in Whitby , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to record my ownership? My Whitby conveyancing solicitor has been very slow, so I want to check that my ownership is registered.

As far as conveyancing in Whitby registration is no faster or slower than anywhere else in the country. Rather than based on location, timeframes can vary depending on who lodges the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry must send notices to any third persons or bodies. As of today approximately three quarters of submission are completed within two weeks but occasionally there can be longer hold-ups. Historically registration takes place after the new owner is living at the premises so post completion formalities is not typically an essential issue but where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your lawyers must communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.
