We are buying a detached bungalow in East Dulwich. Our aim is to carry out a loft conversion at the property.Will legal conveyancing on the property involve enquiries to ascertain if these alterations are permitted?

Your property lawyer will review the registered title as conveyancing in East Dulwich can occasionally reveal restrictions in the title documents which prevent categories of alterations or need the consent of a 3rd party. Some works call for local authority planning consent and approval under the building regulations. Many locations are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which frequently prevent or affect extensions. It would be wise to check these issues with a surveyor ahead of any purchase.

I'm the only recipient of my late mum's will and I have everything in my name alone, including the my former home in East Dulwich. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in April. I plan to dispose of the property. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders 6 month 'rule', which means that my property ownership could be regarded the same way as if I'd bought the house in April. Is the property unsalable for six months?

The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook requires conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you might be caught by that. Some banks would take a sensible view as this obligation primarily exists to identify the purchase and immediately sell or the quick reselling of properties.

I have justbecome aware that Wolstenholmes have been shut down. They conducted my conveyancing in East Dulwich for a purchase of a leasehold apartment 9 months ago. How can I be sure that the property is not still registered in the name of the previous owner?

The easiest method to see if the property is registered to you, you can carry out a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of East Dulwich conveyancing specialists.

How does conveyancing in East Dulwich differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in East Dulwich come to us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is finished. This is because new home sellers in East Dulwich usually buy the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in East Dulwich or who has acted in the same development.

I am using a search engine for the term cheap conveyancing in East Dulwich it brings up many property lawyersin the area. With so much choice what is the best way to find the right conveyancing solicitor for me?

I am in need of some leasehold conveyancing in East Dulwich. Before I set the wheels in motion I would like to find out the remaining lease term.

Assuming the lease is recorded at the land registry - and most are in East Dulwich - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
