My wife and I purchasing a end of terrace house in Dulwich. Our aim is to carry out a loft conversion at the property.Will the conveyancing process involve enquiries to ascertain if these works are permitted?
Your property lawyer should review the deeds as conveyancing in Dulwich can on occasion reveal restrictions in the title documents which prevent certain alterations or need the permission of another owner. Some additions call for local authority planning consent and approval in accordance building regulations.

I can not fathom if my mortgage offer requires a lease extension. I have called into my local Dulwich bank branch on various occasions and was advised it wasn't an issue and they will lend. My Dulwich conveyancing solicitor - who is on the mortgage company conveyancing panel- telephoned to say that they refuse to lend in accordance with their specific requirements. I have no idea who is right.
Your solicitor must follow the CML Handbook Part 2 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 left on the lease.
I am close to exchanging contracts on the sale of our property in Dulwich and according to the buyers it appears that there is a possibility that the property was constructed on contaminated land. Any local conveyancer would know this is not the case. It does beg the question why the purchasers instructed an online conveyancing practice rather than a conveyancing solicitor in Dulwich. Having lived in Dulwich for six years we know that this is a non issue. Should we get in touch with our local Authority to get confirmation that there is no issue.
It would appear that you have a conveyancing firm currently acting for you. Are they able to advise? You need to check with your lawyer before you do anything.
