We are purchasing a victorian detached house in Bracknell. We would like to carry out a loft conversion at the property.Will the conveyancing process involve checks to see if these works are prohibited?
Your solicitor should check the registered title as conveyancing in Bracknell will sometimes identify restrictions in the title documents which restrict certain alterations or require the consent of another owner. Many additions need local authority planning consent and approval in compliance with building regulations. Many locations are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which frequently prevent or affect extensions. You should check these issues with a surveyor ahead of any purchase.
We are getting the release of further monies on our mortgage from HSBC as we wish to carry out a loft conversion to our house in Bracknell. Do we need to choose a nearby Bracknell solicitor on the HSBC conveyancing panel to handle the paperwork?
HSBC don't usually instruct a member of their approved list of lawyers to handle the formalities. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the HSBC panel.
I can not fathom if my mortgage offer requires a lease extension. I have called into my local Bracknell building society branch on various occasions and was informed it wasn't a problem and they will lend. My Bracknell conveyancing solicitor - who is on the bank conveyancing panel- called to say that they refuse to lend based on their published requirements. I have no idea who is right.
Your lawyer must comply with the CML Handbook section two provisions for your lender. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the lender will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the lender to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.
My wife and I purchased a renovated Victorian property in Bracknell. Conveyancing solicitor represented me and Virgin Money. I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are two entries: the first freehold, the second leasehold with the matching property. I thought I was buying a freehold how can I check?
You should review the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Bracknell and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they mortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with buyers. You can also question the position with your conveyancing lawyer who conducted the conveyancing.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what should have been a quick, chain free conveyancing. Bracknell is the location of the property. Is there any advice you can impart?
Flying freeholds in Bracknell are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Bracknell you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds very carefully. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Bracknell may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.
