As far as conveyancing in West Hendon registration is no faster or slower than anywhere else in England and Wales. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can differ according to the party submitting the application, whether there are errors and whether the Land registry must send notices to any 3rd persons or bodies. As of today approximately 80% of such applications are completed within two weeks but some can be subject to longer hold-ups. Registration is effected after the new owner is living at the premises therefore 'speed' is not typically an essential issue yet if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your lawyers must speak with the land registry and explain the circumstances.

I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and identified one near me in West Hendon I like with a park and railway links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 52 years on the lease.

Should you require a home loan that many years will be an issue. Discount the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the property for at least twenty four months you may request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer concerning this.
