Just acquired a detached house in Writtle , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to register the transfer to my name? My Writtle conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to check the post completion formalities are concluded.
As far as conveyancing in Writtle is concerned, registration is no quicker or slower than anywhere else in the country. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can differ according to who lodges the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry communicate with any third parties. Currently approximately three quarters of submission are fully addressed in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be protracted delays. Historically registration takes place after the buyer is living at the property so 'speed' is not usually an essential issue but if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your conveyancer could speak with the land registry and explain the circumstances.
