Just bought a terraced house in Dollis Hill , how long should it take for the Land Registry to register my proprietorship? My Dollis Hill conveyancing solicitor has been very slow, so I want to check the registration is dealt with.
As far as conveyancing in Dollis Hill is concerned, registration is no faster or slower than anywhere else in the country. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can differ subject to the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry must send notices to any interested parties. Currently roughly three quarters of such applications are fully dealt with within two weeks but occasionally there can be extensive hold-ups. Registration is effected once the purchaser has moved in to the property therefore 'speed' is not typically an essential issue but where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your solicitor should speak with the land registry and explain the circumstances.
