My wife and I purchasing a 3 bedroom semi in Heckmondwike. We would like to convert the garage to a playroom at the property.Will the conveyancing process include checks to determine if these alterations are prohibited?

Your solicitor will review the deeds as conveyancing in Heckmondwike can occasionally identify restrictions in the title deeds which restrict categories of changes or need the consent of another owner. Certain extensions require local authority planning consent and approval under the building regulations. Many areas are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which frequently prevent or affect extensions.

I'm the only recipient of my late mum's estate with all property in now in my sole name, including the house in Heckmondwike. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in September. I now wish to sell up. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders six month 'rule', which means that my property ownership could be treated the same way as if I'd bought the property in September. Do I have to wait half a year to sell?

The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook instructs solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you could be impacted by that. How practical a view banks take of it, depend on the mortgage company as this clause primarily exists to pick up on the purchase and immediately sell or the wholesaling and assigning of property.

I have today made my last payment due on my mortgage with Yorkshire BS. I assume I don't need a Heckmondwike property lawyer on the Yorkshire BS panel to discharge the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?

If you have finished paying off your Yorkshire BS mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Yorkshire BS mortgage from the register. Yorkshire BS, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:

  1. but are not moving to another property
  2. where Yorkshire BS has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
  3. Yorkshire BS has instructed the Land Registry to do so
The Land Registry will send you a letter confirming that your Yorkshire BS mortgage has been paid off.

I have been told that property searches are the main reason for obstruction in Heckmondwike house deals. Is this right?

The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) released findings of research by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not figure amongst the most frequent causes of delays in the conveyancing process. Local searches are unlikely to be the root cause of slowing down conveyancing in Heckmondwike.

The deeds to my home are lost. The conveyancers who dealt with the conveyancing in Heckmondwike 10 years ago no longer exist. What do I do?

Assuming you have a registered title the details of your proprietorship will be held by HMLR under a Title Number. It is easy to execute a search at the Land Registry, locate your house and order up to date copies of the Registered Entries for a small fee. Where the title is Leasehold then the Land Registry will also normally retain a certified copy of the Registered Lease and again, a copy can be retrieved for £20 inclusive of VAT.

In my capacity as executor for the estate of my grandfather I am selling a property in Newport but I am based in Heckmondwike. My lawyer (based 250 kilometers awayhas requested that I sign a statutory declaration prior to completion. Can you recommend a conveyancing lawyer in Heckmondwike who can witness this legal document for me?
