Just acquired a terraced house in Windlesham , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to register the transfer to my name? My Windlesham conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to be certain the registration formalities are concluded.
As far as conveyancing in Windlesham registration is no quicker or slower than the rest of England and Wales. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can vary according to the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry have to notify any interested parties. As of today roughly 80% of such applications are fully addressed within two weeks but some can be subject to extensive delays. Registration is effected once the purchaser has moved in to the property so post completion formalities is not always primary concern but if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your lawyers could communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.
