Unfortunately both you and your lawyer have little choice here.

As far as conveyancing in Castle Eden registration is no quicker or slower than the rest of the country. Rather than based on location, timeframes can adjust depending on the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry must send notices to any 3rd parties. At present approximately 80% of submission are fully dealt with in less than three weeks but some can be subject to longer hold-ups. Historically registration occurs after the new owner has moved in to the premises therefore 'speed' is not always top priority but where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your solicitor can communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.

How does conveyancing in Castle Eden differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Castle Eden contact us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is ready to move into. This is because house builders in Castle Eden typically purchase the land, 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 Castle Eden or who has acted in the same development.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £195,000 and found one round the corner in Castle Eden I like with a park and railway links in the vicinity, however it's only got 51 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Castle Eden for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a lease with such few years left?

If you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you can request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.
