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.

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.
