Just bought a terraced house in Heaton Moor , how long should it take for the Land Registry to record the transfer to my name? My Heaton Moor conveyancing solicitor has been very slow, so I want to be sure the land registry aspects are concluded.

There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Heaton Moor registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timeframes can vary subject to the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry need to notify any 3rd persons or bodies. As of today approximately 80% of such applications are fully addressed within two weeks but some can be subject to protracted hold-ups. Registration takes place once the buyer is living at the property so an expedited registration is not typically top priority but if it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your conveyancer can contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.

Do I need to be wary that brokers that I am dealing with are recommending an internet conveyancing firm as opposed to a High Street Heaton Moor conveyancing firm?

As with lots of professional services, often suggestions from family and friends can be worth their weight in gold. But there are lots of players in a conveyancing deal; estate agents, financial adviser and mortgage companies may put forward solicitors to retain. On occasion the conveyancers might be known to one of the organisations as being good in their field, but sometimes there might be a financial incentive behind the recommendation. You are free to appoint your preferred lawyer.

I have just appointed agents to market my garden apartment in Heaton Moor. Conveyancing solicitors are to be appointed soon, however I have just received a quarterly service charge invoice – Do I pay up?

It best that you discharge the invoice as normal because all ground rent and maintenance charges should be apportioned as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.

Heaton Moor Leasehold Conveyancing - A selection of Queries Prior to Purchasing

    If a Heaton Moor lease has fewer than 80 years it will affect the marketability of the flat. Check with your lender that they are happy with residual term of the lease. Leases with fewer than 80 years remaining means that you will most likely have to extend the lease sooner rather than later and you need to have some idea of how much this will be. Remember, in most cases you will be required to have been the owner of the residence for 24 months in order to be entitled to carry out a lease extension. Who is in charge of the block? In the main the cost for major works are not included within service charges, albeit that some managing agents in Heaton Moor obliged leasehold owners to pay into a sinking fund and this is used to offset against major repairs or maintenance.
