Just acquired a detached house in Hampton Hill , how long will it take for the Land Registry to record my title? My Hampton Hill conveyancing solicitor has been very slow, so I want to be certain the land registry aspects are addressed.
As far as conveyancing in Hampton Hill is concerned, registration is no quicker or slower than anywhere else in the country. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can differ subject to the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry must send notices to any 3rd persons or bodies. As of today in the region of three quarters of submission are completed in less than three weeks but some can be subject to longer delays. Registration occurs once the new owner is living at the property so an expedited registration is not always top priority but where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your lawyers could communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on two weeks back in what should have been a simple, no chain conveyancing. Hampton Hill is where the house is located. Can you offer any assistance?

Even where you use a solicitor outside Hampton Hill you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy.

If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.
