As your lender is UBS your lawyer must check the conveyancing requirements set out in Part two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for UBS. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook stipulates minimum specifications for solar panel roof-space leases, and lawyers are required to report to UBS where a lease fails to meet these conditions. The specifications relate to the installation of panels on properties countrywide and is not isolated to Leyton.

Have completed on a a detached house in Leyton , how long should it take for the Land Registry to record the transfer to my name? My Leyton conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to be sure the registration is dealt with.

There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Leyton registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timescales can adjust according to the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry must send notices to any other persons or bodies. Currently approximately three quarters of such applications are fully addressed in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be longer hold-ups. Registration occurs after the buyer is living at the property therefore 'speed' is not always primary concern but where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your solicitor could communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.

How does conveyancing in Leyton differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Leyton come to us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is constructed. This is because new home sellers in Leyton usually acquire the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Leyton or who has acted in the same development.
