I completed on my flat on 4 January and my personal details is yet to be on the land registry website. Any reason for this? My conveyancing solicitor in Stanley advises it should be concluded inside ten days. Are properties in Stanley particularly slow to register?
There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Stanley registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can differ subject to the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry communicate with any third persons or bodies. At present roughly three quarters of such applications are completed in less than three weeks but some can be subject to extensive delays. Historically registration occurs after the purchaser has moved in to the premises therefore registration formalities is not usually top priority yet if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your lawyers can contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.
How does conveyancing in Stanley differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Stanley contact us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is constructed. This is because builders in Stanley typically purchase the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Stanley or who has acted in the same development.
