5 months and waiting for title transfer....No idea where the hold up is. Completion date was 4 January, we live in the property now but title has not transferred. Apparently delays at Land registry and no way to find out how long it will take. we need some changes to the property and can't till original title is transferred to our name. In complete limbo. can someone pls help!!

Karishma, you will need to supply  Adam with the title number.  Do you have a copy of your contract, the title number will be on this or the old official copy entries of the register.   Also, you may have completed 5 months ago but when did you Solicitor submit the application to the Land Registry?

My solicitor sent me a letter from HMLR (reference NB7E5D5) on 18 March saying it was in process. But neither Solicitors not Land registry have moved this forward and we are at the end of May now.

Karishma - the correspondence we have had with the solicitor was to confirm the application was waiting to be processed.
The application was received on the 18th January and in my experience it will still be at least 4/5 weeks before it is considered but that remains only an estimate

Thanks Adam, but is there a reason why it is taking this long? I thought it was quite a quick turnaround of about 8-10 days?

Karishma - the 9 days relates to applications affecting the whole of a registered title. This is one affecting part of one title and the whole of another. The wait time for those is much longer.
