I happen to be the single recipient of my late mum's estate and I have everything in my name now, including the my former home in Barrowden. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in January. I plan to dispose of the property. I understand that there is a Mortgage Lenders 6 month 'rule', which means that my property ownership will be treated the same way as though I had purchased the house in January. Will no one buy the property for half a year?

The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook instructs conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you may be caught by that. How sensible a view lenders take of it, depend on the mortgage company as this clause primarily exists to capture the purchase and immediately sell or the flipping of property.

There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Barrowden registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timescales can adjust depending on who lodges the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry must send notices to any other parties. As of today approximately three quarters of such applications are fully dealt with within two weeks but some can be subject to protracted delays. Registration is effected once the new owner is living at the premises therefore 'speed' is not typically an essential issue yet 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.

How does conveyancing in Barrowden differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Barrowden approach us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is ready to move into. This is because developers in Barrowden usually acquire the real estate, 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Barrowden or who has acted in the same development.

My parents are unable to locate their Barrowden land registry title on the site. They have a vague memory sixty years ago when they purchased the house there were complications concerning Barrowden not being identified on some systems.

Almost all premises in Barrowden should be revealed. Have you tried a search to simply the postcode. Ordinarily it will reveal all the residences inside the postcode. Assuming the property is recorded it will show up with a title number. If they bought 48 years ago it's conceivable it may be not yet registered. The property might still be revealed but with the title number identified as 'na'. In this scenario you will need to locate the original title documentation which might be with your parent’s mortgage company.
