I require conveyancing for a flat in a fairly new development (five years built) in Bilborough. 95% of the appartments have already been occupied. Is it strictly necessary to order neighbourhood searches as part of conveyancing in Bilborough?
If you are acquiring a property with the assistance of a loan, your lender will insist on some (many) of the searches so you'll have no choice. If not, then Bilborough conveyancing searches are optional. Your solicitor, will ’encourage’, perhaps in the strongest possible terms, that you should not go ahead without searches, but he or she is duty bound in this regard. One thing to bear in mind; if you are likely to sell the house one day, it may be of interest to your future buyer what the searches contain. Sometimes houses with no practical issues can still throw up adverse search results. But if you demand that your lawyer to proceed without searches then your lawyer will have to follow your instructions or ask you to appoint a different lawyer for your conveyancing in Bilborough.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £235,500 and found one round the corner in Bilborough I like with a park and railway links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 61 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Bilborough for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a short lease?
Should you need a home loan the shortness of the lease will be problematic. Discount the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the premises for at least 2 years you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.
We're first time buyers - agreed a price, but the selling agent advised that the owners will only proceed if we appoint the agent's chosen lawyers as they are insisting on a ‘quick sale’. My instinct tells me that we should use a family solicitor with experience of conveyancing in Bilborough
It is highly unlikely the sellers are driving this. Should the seller require ‘a quick sale', turning down a serious purchaser is going to damage their objectives. Avoid the agents and go straight to the sellers and make sure they understand (a)you are motivated purchasers (b)you are excited to move forward, with mortgage lined up © you do not need to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)however you intend to appoint your own,trusted Bilborough conveyancing solicitors - rather thanthose that will earn the estate agent a referral fee or achieve conveyancing thresholds set by HQ.
Would local authority permission be required to split a house into multiple appartments in Bilborough? This has taken place to a house adjacent to my house in Bilborough and was ignorant of the conversion until it was finished.
Planning consent is required for splitting a single dwelling in Bilborough into apartments but possibly not for reverting once again to single dwelling-house so, simply put, yes.
