Have purchased a a semi-detached house in Winchcombe , how long should it take for the Land Registry to record the transfer to my name? My Winchcombe conveyancing solicitor has been painfully slow, so I want to check the land registry aspects are dealt with.
There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Winchcombe registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can differ according to who lodges the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry communicate with any interested persons or bodies. As of today roughly 80% of such applications are completed within 12 days but some can be subject to extensive delays. Historically registration occurs after the buyer has moved in to the premises so an expedited registration is not usually primary concern but if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your solicitor can speak with the land registry and explain the circumstances.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I have offered on last month in what was supposed to be a simple, no chain conveyancing. Winchcombe is where the house is located. Is there any guidance you can impart?
Flying freeholds in Winchcombe are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Winchcombe you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Winchcombe may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.
