I moved into my flat on 12 January and the transaction details is not yet registered. Any reason for this? My conveyancing solicitor in Cardigan expressed confidence that it should be registered inside ten days. Are properties in Cardigan uniquely lengthy to register?
As far as conveyancing in Cardigan is concerned, registration is no faster or slower than anywhere else in England and Wales. Rather than based on location, timeframes can differ subject to the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry communicate with any 3rd parties. At present approximately three quarters of such applications are fully addressed in less than three weeks but some can be subject to protracted hold-ups. Registration is effected after the buyer has moved in to the premises so registration formalities 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.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on two weeks back in what was supposed to be a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Cardigan is where the house is located. Can you offer any assistance?
Flying freeholds in Cardigan are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Cardigan you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Cardigan 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 residence.
