Have completed on a a semi-detached house in Croston , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to record my title? My Croston conveyancing solicitor has been very slow, so I want to check that my ownership is recorded.

There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Croston registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timescales can adjust according to who lodges the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry must send notices to any 3rd persons or bodies. As of today approximately three quarters of submission are fully dealt with within 12 days but occasionally there can be protracted hold-ups. Registration is effected once the purchaser is living at the property thus an expedited registration is not always top priority yet if 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.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

I am attracted to a two flats in Croston which have approximately 50 years left on the lease term. Should I regard a short lease as a deal breaker?

A lease is a right to use the premises for a period of time. As a lease shortens the value of the lease decreases and it becomes more expensive to extend the lease. This is why it is advisable to increase the term of the lease. It is often difficult to sell a property with a short lease as mortgage lenders may be reluctant to lend money on such properties. Lease enfranchisement can be a difficult process. We recommend you get professional assistance from a conveyancer and surveyor with experience in this field.
