I moved into my apartment on 13 September and the transaction details is not yet registered. Need I be worried? My conveyancing solicitor in Barnes expressed confidence that it will be concluded inside ten days. Are titles in Barnes particularly slow to register?

As far as conveyancing in Barnes is concerned, registration is no faster or slower than anywhere else in England and Wales. Rather than based on location, timeframes can adjust depending on the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry have to notify any third persons or bodies. As of today approximately three quarters of submission are fully addressed within 12 days but some can be subject to protracted delays. Historically registration occurs once the buyer has moved in to the property thus an expedited registration is not typically an essential issue yet if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your lawyers could speak with the land registry and explain the circumstances.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on two weeks back in what should have been a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Barnes is where the house is located. Can you offer any assistance?

Flying freeholds in Barnes are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Barnes you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Barnes 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 property.
