Provided that the £15,000 is paid and the Agreement has been signed by you and is in their hands there is no reason why you have to wait for the agreement to be registered. The reason is that they have the agreement and then in control of the registration. In other word you can't stop the registration happening once the deed is delivered to them so they are fully protected the minute the deed is handed over..
I hope this helped you today. Please do let me know if I can clarify anything. I am always happy to help. You are always welcome to ask a follow up question if it will help you further.
