My partner and I are buying our first house. The solicitor has contact usto see if we want to order supplemental conveyancing searches. Frankly we have no idea as to what's relevant for conveyancing in Gospel Oak

I got the keys to my flat on 1 November and my personal details is yet to be registered. Need I be worried? My conveyancing solicitor in Gospel Oak advises it would be registered inside ten days. Are transfers in Gospel Oak particularly slow to register?
There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Gospel Oak registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can differ subject to who lodges the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry must send notices to any interested persons or bodies. As of today in the region of three quarters of such applications are fully dealt with in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be protracted hold-ups. Registration takes place after the purchaser is living at the property thus an expedited registration is not typically an essential issue yet where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your conveyancer should speak with the land registry and explain the circumstances.

My in 2005. He has since got wed, divorced and is now married again. He will be selling the property this June. I believe he will just be asked to supply copies of his marriage certificates to the solicitor however he is concerned it will hold up the sale of the property. Should he instruct a conveyancing practitioner to update the land title information for the property?
You are not required to update the register on the basis that you have the proof needed to demonstrate how the change of name resulted.
The purchaser’s conveyancing practitioner should check the title entries and need evidence to prove the name change e.g. marriage documentation.
