Have completed on a a semi-detached house in Hammersmith , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to deal with the formalities evidencing the transfer to my name? My Hammersmith conveyancing solicitor has been painfully slow, so I want to be certain that my name is registered.
There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Hammersmith registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can differ depending on the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry must send notices to any other persons or bodies. Currently roughly 80% of such applications are fully addressed within 12 days but occasionally there can be protracted hold-ups. Registration is effected after the new owner has moved in to the premises thus post completion formalities is not typically primary concern but where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your conveyancer can communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.
My wife and I purchased a leasehold flat in Hammersmith. Conveyancing and Aldermore mortgage are in place. I have received a letter from someone saying they have taken over the reversionary interest in the property. Attached was a demand for arrears of ground rent dating back to 1993. The conveyancing practitioner in Hammersmith who previously acted has long since retired. Do I pay?
The first thing you should do is make enquiries of the Land Registry to make sure that this person is in fact the registered owner of the freehold reversion. It is not necessary to instruct a Hammersmith conveyancing practitioner to do this as it can be done on-line for £3. Rest assured that in any event, even if this is the legitimate freeholder, under the Limitation Act 1980 no more than 6 years of rent can be collected.
