Just bought a semi-detached house in Lamorbey , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to record the transfer to my name? My Lamorbey conveyancing solicitor has been painfully slow, so I want to check that my name is registered.

Rather than based on location, timeframes can differ according to who lodges the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry communicate with any third parties. As of today roughly 80% of such applications are fully dealt with within 12 days but some can be subject to protracted delays. Historically registration is effected after the new owner is living at the premises so 'speed' is not always an essential issue but where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your lawyers should speak with the land registry and explain the circumstances.

My wife and I purchased a leasehold flat in Lamorbey. Conveyancing and Coventry Building Society mortgage went though with no issue. A letter has just been received from someone claiming to own the reversionary interest in the property. Attached was a demand for arrears of ground rent dating back to 1996. The conveyancing practitioner in Lamorbey who acted for me is not around. Do I pay?

First make enquiries of the Land Registry to make sure that this person is in fact the registered owner of the freehold reversion. It is not necessary to instruct a Lamorbey conveyancing lawyer to do this as you can do this on the Land Registry website for £3. Rest assured that regardless, even if this is the legitimate freeholder, under the Limitation Act 1980 the limitation period for recovery of ground rent is six years.

I have tried to negotiate informally with with my landlord for a lease extension without success. Can I make an application to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal? Can you recommend a Lamorbey conveyancing firm to represent me?
