I got the keys to my flat on 2 July and the transaction details is yet to be on the land registry website. Any reason for this? My conveyancing solicitor in Sale said it will be registered in less than a month. Are transfers in Sale particularly slow to register?
As far as conveyancing in Sale registration is no faster or slower than anywhere else in England and Wales. Rather than based on location, timescales can differ according to the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry communicate with any third parties. Currently roughly three quarters of such applications are completed in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be longer delays. Historically registration occurs once the purchaser is living at the property therefore an expedited registration is not always top priority but if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your conveyancer can contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.

What are the frequently found defects that you witness in leases for Sale properties?
Leasehold conveyancing in Sale is not unique. Most leases are individual and legal mistakes in the legal wording can sometimes mean that certain clauses are erroneous. The following missing provisions could result in a defective lease:
Repairing obligations to or maintain elements of the property Service charge per centages that don't add up correctly leaving a shortfall
You could have a problem when selling your property if you have a defective lease primarily because it impacts on the ability to obtain a mortgage on the property. Halifax, The Royal Bank of Scotland, and Nottingham Building Society all have very detailed requirements when it comes to what is expected in a lease. If a mortgage lender believes that the lease is defective they may refuse to grant the mortgage, forcing the purchaser to pull out.
