Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Enderby

I am about to put an offer on a leasehold apartment in Enderby. The property agents tell me that it is normal for flats in Enderby to have less than 75 years left on the lease. I am taking out a loan with Platform. Is this going to be acceptable if the lease has Seventy One years remaining.

Most leasehold conveyancing experts should be able to deal with a lease extension. if you are obtaining a mortgage then your lender may insist that the lease be extended before competition. Platform have specific requirements as set out in the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook in relation to minimum unexpired lease terms. As of 6/10/2021 the requirements read as follows :

Minimum 85 years unexpired from completion, except where the mortgage application is pursuant to Platform's participation in the Government's Help to Buy Shared Equity scheme, in which case (a) the unexpired lease term must not be less than 250 years for new-build houses and not less than 125 years for new-build flats and (b) ground rent must be reasonable at all times and any escalation must be linked to RPI (Retail Price Index) or a similar index.

My stepmother informed me that in purchasing a property in Enderby there could be a number of restrictions preventing external changes to a property. Is this right?

We are aware of a number of properties in Enderby which have some sort of restriction or requirement of consent to execute external alterations. Part of the conveyancing in Enderby should determine what restrictions are applicable and advising you as part of a ROT that should be sent to you.

I am purchasing a 4 bedroom semi-detached house in Enderby. We would like to convert the garage to an office at the property.Will the conveyancing process involve checks to determine if these alterations are allowed?

Your solicitor will check the registered title as conveyancing in Enderby can on occasion reveal restrictions in the title documents which prohibit certain works or necessitated the consent of a 3rd party. Some additions need local authority planning consent and approval in accordance building regulations. Some areas are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which often prevent or impact extensions. It would be sensible to check these things with a surveyor prior to committing yourself to a purchase.

I am selling my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in February 2006, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s mortgage company, Barclays are being problematic. The Enderby solicitor who is on the Barclays conveyancing panel is saying indemnity insurance will be fine but Barclays are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Barclays have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Barclays have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Barclays may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.
