Have purchased a a semi-detached house in Bethnal Green , how long should it take for the Land Registry to register my proprietorship? My Bethnal Green conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to be sure the registration is addressed.
As far as conveyancing in Bethnal Green registration is no faster or slower than anywhere else in the country. Rather than based on location, timescales can differ depending on who lodges the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry communicate with any 3rd persons or bodies. Currently in the region of 80% of submission are fully dealt with within two weeks but occasionally there can be protracted delays. Historically registration takes place once the buyer is living at the premises so an expedited registration is not usually top priority but where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your conveyancer could communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.
How does conveyancing in Bethnal Green differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Bethnal Green 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 new home sellers in Bethnal Green usually purchase 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 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 used to new build conveyancing in Bethnal Green or who has acted in the same development.
