Rather than based on location, timeframes can differ depending on who lodges the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry must send notices to any third persons or bodies. As of today roughly three quarters of such applications are fully dealt with within 12 days but some can be subject to extensive hold-ups. Registration takes place once the new owner is living at the premises therefore 'speed' is not typically primary concern but if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your solicitor must contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.

I am on look out for some leasehold conveyancing in Isle of Sheppey. Before I set the wheels in motion I require certainty as to the unexpired term of the lease.

If the lease is registered - and 99.9% are in Isle of Sheppey - then the leasehold title will always include the short particulars of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.

I acquired a garden flat in Isle of Sheppey, conveyancing formalities finalised half a dozen years ago. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease?

With 53 years unexpired the likely cost is going to span between £27,600 and £31,800 as well as costs.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs in the absence of comprehensive due diligence. Do not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be other concerns that need to be taken into account and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you move forward based on this information without first getting professional advice.

I happen to be an executor of my recently deceased mother’s Will, with a house in Isle of Sheppey which will be sold. The property is unregistered at the Land Registry and I'm told that some buyers solicitors will insist that it is completed before they will proceed. What's the procedure for this?

In the circumstances that you have set out it seems advisable to apply to register in the names of the personal representative(s) as named in the probate and in their capacity as PRs. HMLR’s online guidance explains how to register for the first time and what is required re the deeds and forms. You would need to include and certified copy of the probate as well and complete the form FR1 to refer to the PRs as the applicant.
