I purchased my apartment on 5 November and my personal details is yet to be registered. Any reason for this? My conveyancing solicitor in Teddington said it would be recorded in less than a month. Are titles in Teddington uniquely lengthy to register?
As far as conveyancing in Teddington is concerned, registration is no quicker or slower than the rest of the country. Rather than based on location, timescales can adjust subject to the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry must send notices to any 3rd parties. At present roughly 80% of such applications are fully addressed in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be extensive hold-ups. Historically registration takes place once the new owner has moved in to the property therefore an expedited registration is not always an essential issue yet if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your conveyancer must contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.

Having had my offer accepted I require leasehold conveyancing in Teddington. Before I set the wheels in motion I would like to find out the number of years remaining on the lease.
If the lease is recorded at the land registry - and 99.9% are in Teddington - then the leasehold title will always include the short particulars of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
After months of correspondence we are unable to agree with our landlord on how much the lease extension should cost for our flat in Teddington. Does the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal have jurisdiction to calculate the appropriate figures?
