There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion.

Usually this occurs between 1 and 3pm.

Have purchased a a semi-detached house in Holborn , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to record my ownership? My Holborn conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to be sure that my ownership is registered.
There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Holborn registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can adjust depending on the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry must send notices to any third parties. As of today approximately three quarters of submission are fully addressed within two weeks but occasionally there can be longer hold-ups. Historically registration occurs after the purchaser has moved in to the property so an expedited registration is not usually an essential issue yet if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your conveyancer could contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.
