Have purchased a a terraced house in Skelmersdale , how long should it take for the Land Registry to deal with the formalities evidencing my ownership? My Skelmersdale conveyancing solicitor has been painfully slow, so I want to check the registration is concluded.
There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Skelmersdale registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timeframes can vary depending on the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry have to notify any third parties. As of today in the region of three quarters of such applications are fully addressed within two weeks but some can be subject to extensive delays. Historically registration is effected after the new owner has moved in to the premises thus 'speed' is not always top priority yet where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your solicitor can contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.

I am employed by a reputable estate agency in Skelmersdale where we have experienced a number of leasehold sales derailed as a result of leases having less than 80 years remaining. I have been given contradictory information from local Skelmersdale conveyancing solicitors. Please can you confirm whether the seller of a flat can start the lease extension process for the buyer?
As long as the seller has owned the lease for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to start the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. This means that the proposed purchaser can avoid having to sit tight for 2 years to extend their lease. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment needs to be completed before, or simultaneously with completion of the sale.
An alternative approach is to agree the lease extension with the freeholder either before or after the sale. If you are informally negotiating there are no rules and so you cannot insist on the landlord agreeing to grant an extension or transferring the benefit of an agreement to the purchaser.
