As far as conveyancing in Purley is concerned, registration is no quicker or slower than the rest of England and Wales. Rather than based on location, timescales can differ according to who lodges the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry need to notify any 3rd parties.

Registration is effected after the new owner has moved in to the property so an expedited registration is not typically primary concern but if it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your solicitor should communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.

Estate agents have just been given the go-ahead to market my 2 bed apartment in Purley. Conveyancing solicitors are to be appointed soon, however I have recently had a yearly maintenance charge demand – Do I pay up?

It best that you discharge the invoice as normal given that all ground rent and maintenance payments will be apportioned as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you will be reimbursed by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most management companies will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process.

Where there is a missing landlord or where there is disagreement about what the lease extension should cost, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 it is possible to make an application to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal to calculate the sum to be paid.

I need to swap lawyers as my Purley lawyer is not on the lender's panel of conveyancing solicitors. Is it practical to instruct different lawyers?

If you haven't yet instructed a conveyancer to do anything for you and have just received an estimate as to costs, you're perfectly free to choose a different solicitor to carry out your work for you. The best way is to get recommendations from friends or family who have actually used the solicitor or conveyancer in Purley that you're thinking of instructing.
