Just acquired a semi-detached house in Maghull , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to deal with the formalities evidencing my ownership? My Maghull conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to check that my ownership is recorded.

There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Maghull registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timescales can vary according to who lodges the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry have to notify any third parties. As of today roughly three quarters of such applications are fully dealt with within 12 days but occasionally there can be longer delays. Historically registration is effected after the purchaser has moved in to the premises thus an expedited registration is not always top priority but where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your conveyancer should communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on last month in what was supposed to be a simple, chain free conveyancing. Maghull is where the house is located. Can you offer any guidance?

Even where you use a solicitor outside Maghull you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy.

You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.
