We are buying a property in New Cross. I might seem paranoid but how we can trust a solicitor? At some point we will need to deposit money into their account. What is the protection we have from them run away with our money?

We are buying a detached bungalow in New Cross. We would like to carry out an extension to the side at the property.Will legal investigations on the property involve enquiries to see if these alterations were previously refused?

Your solicitor will check the deeds as conveyancing in New Cross can on occasion identify restrictions in the title deeds which prevent categories of alterations or need the consent of another owner. Certain additions need local authority planning permissions and approval in accordance building regulations. Many locations are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which frequently prevent or affect extensions. You should check these things with a surveyor prior to committing yourself to a purchase.

I happen to be the sole beneficiary of my late mum's estate with all property in now in my sole name, including the house in New Cross. The New Cross property was put into my name in January. I plan to dispose of the house. I understand that there is a Mortgage Lenders six month 'rule', which means that my property ownership will be treated the same way as though I had purchased the property in January. Do I have to wait 6 months to sell?

The CML handbook mandates solicitors to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you could be caught by that. Some mortgage companies would take a practical view as this clause principally exists to identify subsales or the quick reselling of property.

What does a local search tell me regarding the house we're buying in New Cross?

New Cross conveyancing often starts with the ordering local authority searches directly from your local Authority or through a personal search organisations for example Searchflow The local search is essential in every New Cross conveyancing purchase; as long as you don’t want any nasty surprises after you move into your new home. The search should reveal data on, amongst other things, details on planning applications relevant to the premises (whether granted or refused), building control history, any enforcement action, restrictions on permitted development, nearby road schemes, contaminated land and radon gas; in all a total of 13 topic sections.

Due to the advice of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a house in New Cross before retaining solicitors. I have been told that there is a flying freehold overhang to the property. Our surveyor has said that some banks tend not issue a loan on this type of home.

It varies from the lender to lender. Santander has different instructions for example to Halifax. If you e-mail us we can look into this further via the appropriate mortgage company. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in New Cross. Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.

Am I better off to choose a New Cross conveyancing practitioner based in the vicinity that I am purchasing? An old friend can conduct the legal work but his firm is located 200miles drive away.

The primary upside of using a high street New Cross conveyancing firm is that you can visit the firm to sign documents, present your identification documents and apply pressure on them where appropriate. Having local New Cross know how is a benefit. However it's more important to get someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If you know people who instructed your friend and on the whole were happy that must trump using an unknown New Cross conveyancing solicitor solely due to them being based in the area.
