You have limited options available to you. Given that you are taking out a loan with a lender your property lawyer has to comply with their conditions as set out in their version of the CML Conveyancing Handbook. Your conveyancing practitioner would have previously signed the Terms and Conditions of your bank’s conveyancing panel appointment which obliges them to comply with the CML Handbook requirements . Even if you were a cash buyer you would be ill advised not to carry out Knutsford conveyancing searches.

I acquired my flat on 1 August and the transaction details is not yet on the land registry website. Any reason for this? My conveyancing solicitor in Knutsford expressed confidence that it would be recorded in less than a month. Are properties in Knutsford particularly slow to register?
There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Knutsford registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timeframes can adjust according to who lodges the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry have to notify any 3rd persons or bodies. As of today roughly three quarters of such applications are fully addressed within two weeks but occasionally there can be longer hold-ups. Registration occurs after the purchaser has moved in to the property so registration formalities is not always an essential issue but where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your conveyancer must contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.
I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £235,500 and found one round the corner in Knutsford I like with open areas and transport links in the vicinity, however it's only got 51 years on the lease.

If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you may ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer concerning this.
