My wife and I purchasing a 4 bedroom semi-detached house in Benfleet. We would like to carry out an extension to the side at the property.Will legal investigations on the property include enquiries to see if these works were previously refused?
Your solicitor will check the deeds as conveyancing in Benfleet can sometimes reveal restrictions in the title deeds which restrict categories of works or necessitated the consent of another owner. Many works call for local authority planning permissions and approval in accordance building regulations. Certain locations are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which frequently prevent or affect extensions. You should check these issues with a surveyor ahead of any purchase.
How can we know in advance if a Benfleet conveyancing solicitor on the HSBC panel is any good?
When it comes to conveyancing in Benfleet seeking recommendations is a sensible start. Before you go ahead, check if they offer a no sale no fee offer. Also, you often get what you pay for - a firm which quotes more, will often provide a better service than one which is cheap as chips. We would always advise that you speak with the lawyer carrying out your transaction.
I have today made my last payment due on my mortgage with Clydesdale. I assume I don't need a Benfleet conveyancing practitioner on the Clydesdale panel to remove the mortgage at the Land Registry. Am I right?
If you have finished paying off your Clydesdale mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Clydesdale mortgage from the register. Clydesdale, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:
- but are not moving to another property
- where Clydesdale has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
- Clydesdale has instructed the Land Registry to do so
I have been on the look out for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and found one round the corner in Benfleet I like with amenity areas and station nearby, however it's only got 61 years on the lease. There is not much else in Benfleet in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?
If you require a home loan the shortness of the lease will likely be problematic. Reduce the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the premises for at least 2 years you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.
