Just bought a terraced house in Preston , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to record the transfer to my name? My Preston conveyancing solicitor has been painfully slow, so I want to be certain the land registry aspects are dealt with.

There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Preston registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can adjust depending on the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry have to notify any third persons or bodies. At present roughly three quarters of such applications are fully dealt with in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be extensive delays. Historically registration is effected once the buyer is living at the premises so registration formalities is not typically primary concern but where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your solicitor could contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.

Just had an offer accepted on a new build flat in Preston. Conveyancing is necessary evil at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. Can you give me some examples of some of the questions asked in new build legal work.

Set out below is a sample of a selection of leasehold new build questions that you may expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Preston

    If there are lifts in the building, please confirm that the owners of flats on the ground and basement floors will not be required to contribute towards the cost of maintenance and renewal. Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision. Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I have offered on a fortnight ago in what should have been a simple, no chain conveyancing. Preston is the location of the property. Is there any advice you can impart?

Flying freeholds in Preston are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Preston you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Preston may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.

We are contemplating using an online conveyancing practitioner as opposed to a Preston conveyancing firm. Am I making a mistake?

Advantages do exist in having the option attend a local Preston conveyancing solicitor for instance

  • signing documents same day
  • having face-to-face explanations of issues that you need help with
  • the ability to complain if matters need to addressed

When comparing fees, look carefully for hidden extras. Most decent Preston high street solicitors give an all-inclusive figure. Many online companies seem to offer cheap prices, but have burried 'extras' in the small print.
