Just bought a terraced house in Meliden , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to register the transfer to my name? My Meliden conveyancing solicitor has been very slow, so I want to check the registration is addressed.

As far as conveyancing in Meliden registration is no quicker or slower than anywhere else in England and Wales. Rather than based on location, timeframes can vary subject to the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry communicate with any interested persons or bodies. At present roughly 80% of submission are fully addressed within two weeks but some can be subject to protracted hold-ups. Registration is effected after the purchaser is living at the property so an expedited registration is not typically primary concern but if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your lawyers must speak with the land registry and explain the circumstances.

How does conveyancing in Meliden differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Meliden contact us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is completed. This is because developers in Meliden typically purchase 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 property lawyers 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 Meliden or who has acted in the same development.

Can you provide any top tips for leasehold conveyancing in Meliden with the intention of speeding up the sale process?

  • A significant proportion of the frustration in leasehold conveyancing in Meliden can be bypassed if you get in touch lawyers the minute your agents start marketing the property and ask them to collate the leasehold documentation which will be required by the purchasers’ representatives.
  • If you are supposed to have a share in the freehold, you should make sure that you have the original share document. Arranging a new share certificate is often a lengthy formality and frustrates many a Meliden conveyancing deal. If a new share certificate is required, do contact the company director and secretary or managing agents (if applicable) for this at the earliest opportunity. Many landlords or Management Companies in Meliden charge for supplying management packs for a leasehold home. You or your lawyers should discover the actual amount of the charges. The management pack sought as soon as you have a buyer, thus accelerating the process. The typical amount of time it takes to receive management information is three weeks. It is the most frequent reason for delay in leasehold conveyancing in Meliden. If you have had conflict with your landlord or managing agents it is very important that these are resolved prior to the flat being marketed. The buyers and their solicitors will be concerned about purchasing a property where there is an ongoing dispute. You may have to bite the bullet and pay any arrears of service charge or settle the dispute prior to the buyers completing the purchase. It is therefore preferable to have any dispute settled ahead of the contract papers being issued to the buyers’ solicitors. You are still duty bound to disclose details of the dispute to the purchasers, but it is better to present the dispute as historic as opposed to ongoing.
