A friend suggested that where I am purchasing in Radlett I should ask my conveyancer to execute a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. Can you explain what the purpose of this search is?

It includes an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the Radlett Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the demographics of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average House Prices, Crime statistics, Local Education with plans and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful information about Radlett.

I have todaydiscovered that Wolstenholmes have been shut down. They carried out my conveyancing in Radlett for a purchase of a leasehold apartment 9 months ago. How can I establish that the property is in my name in the name of the previous owner?

I am buying a new build house in Radlett with the aid of help to buy. The builders would not move on the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of fixtures and fittings instead. The estate agent told me not disclose to my solicitor about this extras as it may affect my mortgage with Nottingham Building Society. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on a fortnight ago in what should have been a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Radlett is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?

Flying freeholds in Radlett are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Radlett you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Radlett may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.
