Just bought a detached house in Bawtry , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to deal with the formalities evidencing the transfer to my name? My Bawtry conveyancing solicitor has been very slow, so I want to check the registration is addressed.
There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Bawtry registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timescales can adjust subject to the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry communicate with any other parties. Currently approximately 80% of such applications are completed within two weeks but some can be subject to extensive delays. Registration occurs once the new owner is living at the premises thus 'speed' is not usually primary concern but where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your lawyers can communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.
How does conveyancing in Bawtry differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Bawtry come to us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is finished. This is because developers in Bawtry usually buy the site, 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 conveyancers 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 used to new build conveyancing in Bawtry or who has acted in the same development.
