Have purchased a a terraced house in Preston , how long should it take for the Land Registry to register the transfer to my name? My Preston conveyancing solicitor has been painfully slow, so I want to be certain that my ownership is recorded.
As far as conveyancing in Preston is concerned, registration is no faster or slower than anywhere else in the country.

How does conveyancing in Preston differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Preston come to us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is built. This is because new home sellers in Preston tend to purchase the site, 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 used to new build conveyancing in Preston or who has acted in the same development.
