I purchased my home on 6 January and my personal details is yet to be registered. Should I be concerned? My conveyancing solicitor in Wilford expressed confidence that it should be registered in less than a month. Are titles in Wilford uniquely lengthy to register?
As far as conveyancing in Wilford registration is no faster or slower than the rest of England and Wales. Rather than based on location, timeframes can vary according to who lodges the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry communicate with any 3rd parties. As of today approximately 80% of such applications are fully addressed within two weeks but occasionally there can be protracted hold-ups. Historically registration is effected after the purchaser has moved in to the premises therefore an expedited registration is not usually primary concern yet if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your lawyers should contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.
How does conveyancing in Wilford differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Wilford contact us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is ready to move into. This is because new home sellers in Wilford typically buy the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Wilford or who has acted in the same development.
