Just acquired a terraced house in Cheadle , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to register the transfer to my name? My Cheadle conveyancing solicitor has been very slow, so I want to be sure that my ownership is registered.
There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Cheadle registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can adjust depending on the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry must send notices to any other persons or bodies. As of today roughly 80% of submission are completed within two weeks but some can be subject to longer delays. Registration takes place once the buyer is living at the premises thus an expedited registration is not usually top priority yet where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your conveyancer can speak with the land registry and explain the circumstances.
I have been on the look out for a flat up to £305k and identified one close by in Cheadle I like with a park and station nearby, the downside is that it only has 52 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Cheadle for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a short lease?
If you need a mortgage that many years will likely 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 owner has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you can ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer concerning this.
