We are purchasing a 4 bedroom semi-detached house in Kings Norton. The intention is to convert the garage to a playroom at the property.Will the conveyancing process involve investigations to determine if these works are allowed?
Your property lawyer should check the deeds as conveyancing in Kings Norton will occasionally reveal restrictions in the title deeds which prevent categories of changes or need the consent of a 3rd party. Some additions need local authority planning consent and approval in accordance building regulations. Many areas are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which often prevent or impact extensions. It would be wise to check these issues with a surveyor ahead of any purchase.
I happen to be the only recipient of my late mum's will with all property in now in my sole name, including the house in Kings Norton. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in August. I now wish to sell up. I do know about the CML six month 'rule', which means that my property ownership will be treated the same way as though I had purchased the house in August. Do I have to wait 6 months to sell?
The CML handbook instructs solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you may be affected by that. How sensible a view mortgage companies take of it, depend on the lender as this provision principally exists to capture the purchase and immediately sell or the wholesaling and assigning of properties.
I recently had an offer agreed on an apartment in Kings Norton. My mortgage broker pressured me to appoint their conveyancing practitioner. I paid an advanced payment of £150. A couple of days later, the conveyancer contacted me sheepishly admitting that they were not on the Nationwide conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?
You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Nationwide panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.
I appreciate that there are debates on Chancel Insurance on online forums. Am I compelled to take this when purchasing a house in Kings Norton? or I am told that there is an ancient law that means some house owners living in a parish church boundary may be liable to contribute towards maintenance towards the chancel in proximity to the church. Is this applicable for conveyancing in Kings Norton?
Unless a prior acquisition of the property took place after 12 October 2013 you can expect solicitors conducting conveyancing in Kings Norton to continue to advocate a chancel search and or insurance against a claim.
