Just acquired a detached house in Queen's Park , how long should it take for the Land Registry to register the transfer to my name? My Queen's Park conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to be sure that my purchase is recorded.
As far as conveyancing in Queen's Park is concerned, registration is no faster or slower than anywhere else in the country. Rather than based on location, timeframes can differ subject to the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry need to notify any 3rd parties. At present roughly three quarters of submission are fully dealt with within two weeks but occasionally there can be longer delays. Historically registration is effected once the buyer has moved in to the property thus an expedited registration is not always top priority yet if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your lawyers should contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.

Queen's Park conveyancing on leasehold apartments normally requires the buyer’s conveyancer submitting enquiries for the landlord to address. Although the landlord is under no legal obligation to respond to these enquiries most will be willing to do so. They are entitled to invoice a reasonable administration fee for responding to questions or supplying documentation. There is no upper cap for such fees. The average fee for the information that you are referring to is over three hundred pounds, in some transactions it is in excess of £800. The management information fee required by the landlord must be sent together with a summary of entitlements and obligations in respect of administration fees, otherwise the charge is technically not due. Reality however dictates that one has no choice but to pay whatever is requested of you if you want to sell the property.
