As far as conveyancing in Crystal Palace is concerned, registration is no quicker or slower than the rest of England and Wales. Rather than based on location, timescales can vary according to the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry communicate with any 3rd persons or bodies. As of today approximately three quarters of such applications are fully addressed within 12 days but occasionally there can be extensive hold-ups. Registration is effected after the buyer has moved in to the premises therefore post completion formalities is not usually top priority yet if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your solicitor must communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.

Last March I purchased a leasehold property in Crystal Palace. Am I liable to pay service charges relating to a period prior to my ownership?

In a situation where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous lessee and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. However, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. A critical element of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to be sure to have an up to date clear service charge receipt before completion of your purchase. If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.

If you purchase part way through an accounting year you may be liable for charges not yet demanded even if they relate to a period prior to your purchase. In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).
