As far as conveyancing in Eltham registration is no quicker or slower than the rest of the country. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can differ according to the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry need to notify any other persons or bodies. Currently roughly three quarters of such applications are fully addressed in less than three weeks but some can be subject to longer hold-ups. Registration occurs after the new owner has moved in to the premises thus an expedited registration is not usually an essential issue but where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your solicitor could communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.

A lease is a legal document that entitles you to use the premises for a prescribed time frame. As a lease shortens the value of the lease decreases and it becomes more costly to acquire a lease extension. This is why it is generally wise to extend the lease term. More often than not it is difficulties arise selling premises with a short lease because mortgage lenders may be reluctant to lend money on such properties. Lease extension can be a difficult process. We recommend you get professional help from a solicitor and surveyor with experience in this area.
