It is part of a new estate and my solicitor told me that it can take one year to complete the registration formalities. I have called HM Land Registry directly and they say that the initial application was cancelled due to failure to reply to requisitions. Should I be concerned?

It is your conveyancer that you should turn to here in order to satisfy any questions which have been raised as part of the registration formalities for your Preston Park property.
