I moved into my flat on 13 January and my personal details are still not registered. Need I be worried? My conveyancing solicitor in Northolt said it would be registered inside ten days. Are titles in Northolt uniquely lengthy to register?

As far as conveyancing in Northolt registration is no quicker or slower than anywhere else in the country. Rather than based on location, timeframes can differ subject to who lodges the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry must send notices to any 3rd parties. At present approximately 80% of submission are completed in less than three weeks but some can be subject to longer delays. Registration occurs after the new owner has moved in to the property thus an expedited registration is not always top priority yet where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your conveyancer could communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.

Should one remove a deceased person's details from the title deeds for a property in Northolt?

Where a Northolt property is jointly owned and one of the proprietors dies, the name will not automatically be removed from the title deeds. It is not necessary to remove their name as when it comes to a disposal you would just need to evidence why the joint proprietor is missing from the contract, typically this is in the form of a grant of probate.

With the aim of making the sale conveyancing smoother in the future you may apply to have the deceased person removed from the title by applying to the land registry with evidence of the death. There is no land registry fee payable.
