I selected a Norwood based lawyer for our conveyancing in Norwood recently. Upon checking the small print I notewe are responsible for costs even if the sale aborts. Would I be best advised to select a web based solicitor practice advertising no completion no charge conveyancing in Norwood?
It is usually ‘give and take’ in that if "No Completion No Fee" is offered then the fee levels will generally be uplifted to counteract those conveyances that fail to complete. You should be mindful that these arrangements rarely cover expenditure for example Norwood conveyancing search costs.
A colleague advised me that in purchasing a property in Norwood there may be a number of restrictions as to what one can do in terms of external changes to a property. Is this right?
There are a number of properties in Norwood which have some sort of restriction or requirement of consent to carry out external variations. Part of the conveyancing in Norwood should determine what restrictions are applicable and advising you as part of a ROT that should be sent to you.
We are purchasing a 4 bedroom semi-detached house in Norwood. The intention is to an extension at the rear at the property.Will legal conveyancing on the property involve investigations to ascertain if these works are permitted?
Your solicitor should review the registered title as conveyancing in Norwood will occasionally identify restrictions in the title documents which restrict categories of alterations or necessitated the permission of another owner. Many works require local authority planning consent and approval in compliance with building regulations. Many locations 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 single beneficiary of my late father’s estate with all property in now in my sole name, including the house in Norwood. The Norwood property was put into my name in October. I want to move. I understand that there is a CML 6 month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship may be regarded the same way as though I had purchased the property in October. Do I have to wait half a year to sell?
The CML handbook obliges 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 could be caught by that. How practical a view mortgage companies take of it, depend on the mortgage company as this requirement principally exists to capture the purchase and immediately sell or the wholesaling and assigning of properties.
The estate agent has sent us the confirmation of our purchase of a new build flat in Norwood. Conveyancing is a frightening process at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build conveyancing.

Please supply evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry. The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme.

Are Norwood conveyancing solicitors duty bound by the Law Society to supply clear conveyancing figures?
Inbuilt into the Solicitors Code of Conduct are set rules and regulations as to how the Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) allow solicitors to publicise their charges to clients.The Law Society have practice note giving advice on how to publicise transparent charges to avoid breaching any such rule. Practice notes are not legal advice issued by the Law Society and is not to be interpreted as the only standard of good practice a conveyancing solicitor should adhere to. The Practice Note does, nevertheless, represent the Law Society’s view of acceptable practice for publicising conveyancing charges, and accordingly it’s a recommended read for any solicitor or conveyancer in Norwood or beyond.
