My wife and I buying a end of terrace house in Morganstown. The intention is to carry out a loft conversion at the property.Will legal conveyancing on the property involve enquiries to see if these alterations are allowed?
Your property lawyer will review the deeds as conveyancing in Morganstown can occasionally identify restrictions in the title deeds which restrict categories of works or require the permission of a 3rd party. Many works call for local authority planning consent and approval under the building regulations. Some locations are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which frequently prevent or impact extensions. It would be prudent to check these things with a surveyor ahead of any purchase.
Can you help - my lawyer says that lack of planning permission insurance is required on my purchase. What is the level of cover for Morganstown conveyancing?
The right level of lack of planning permission indemnity insurance depends on who your lender is. It would differ for example between Accord Mortgages Ltd and Coventry Building Society. Conveyancing practitioners as opposed to borrowers take out such policies.
About to purchase maisonette in Morganstown. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Lender if you are obtaining a mortgage".

Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £305k and found one round the corner in Morganstown I like with amenity areas and transport links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 51 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Morganstown in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?
Should you need a mortgage that many years may be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you could ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer concerning this.

Estate agents have just been given the go-ahead to market my ground floor flat in Morganstown. Conveyancing solicitors are to be appointed soon, but I have recently received a half-yearly maintenance charge invoice – what should I do?
The sensible thing to do is discharge the service charge as normal because all ground rent and maintenance charges should be allotted on completion, so you will be reimbursed by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process.
