Your conveyancer should check the deeds as conveyancing in Broadstairs will sometimes identify restrictions in the title documents which restrict certain works or require the permission of another owner. Many works call for local authority planning permissions and approval under the building regulations. Many areas are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which often prevent or affect extensions. You should check these things with a surveyor before you commit yourself to a purchase.

I have decided to exercise my right to buy my property in Broadstairs off the council. I have a mortgage agreed with Lloyds. Conveyancing is new to me. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should have one. Any advice?

It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Lloyds, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Lloyds conveyancing panel.

The property agent will want to know who your solicitors are (make sure the solicitors are on the bank’s approved list). Call up Santander or the financial adviser and finish off any appropriate forms. Santander will appoint a valuer who will get in contact with the estate agent or seller to arrange a time for the valuation to take place. Once conducted (assuming no problems) it takes approximately a fortnight for the mortgage offer to be issued. Santander will issue the offer to you and your property lawyers. The legal work will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Broadstairs.

If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Broadstairs. Conveyancing can be more complicated and therefore you should check with your conveyancing solicitor in Broadstairs to see if the conveyancing costs will increase in light of this.
