As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can adjust depending on who lodges the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry communicate with any 3rd persons or bodies. At present approximately three quarters of such applications are fully addressed in less than three weeks but some can be subject to longer delays.

The property lawyer listed on the bank conveyancing panel is required to disclose to the mortgage company of any changes to the sale price.
