A colleague informed me that in buying a property in Bolsover there may be various restrictions preventing external changes to a property. Is this right?
There are anumerous of properties in Bolsover which have some sort of restriction or requirement of consent to carry out external changes. Part of the conveyancing in Bolsover should determine what restrictions are applicable and advising you as part of a ROT that should be sent to you.
When it comes to lenders such as Principality, do Bolsover conveyancers incur an annual charge to be on the list of approved solicitors?
We are unaware of any bank fees to be on their list of approved firms, although some do charge an administration charge to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel application.
I have instructed a Bolsover property lawyer having checked that they are on the Barclays conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?
Barclays will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Barclays will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. You may wish to consider appointing your own Bolsover surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller.
I used Wolstenholmes a few years past for my conveyancing in Bolsover. Now, I need my files but cannot find the solicitor. What do I do?

I have been on the look out for a flat up to £195,000 and found one near me in Bolsover I like with open areas and railway links in the vicinity, however it only has 61 years on the lease. There is not much else in Bolsover for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?
If you need a mortgage that many years will likely be problematic. Reduce the price 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 ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this matter.
In what way can the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 impact my business offices in Bolsover and how can you help?
The particular law that you refer to provides protection to business leaseholders, giving them the dueness to make a request to court for a renewal lease and continue in occupation when the lease comes to an end. There are limited grounds where a landlord can refuse a lease renewal and the rules are complicated. Fees are different for commercial conveyancing.

I have been told by many family members to expect 6-8 weeks for Bolsover conveyancing to complete.This was 3 ago. The draft contract was only forwarded to my lawyer last week so does the clock start running now?
Don't bank on counting down a two month period. Answering exactly how long Bolsover conveyancing will take is virtually impossible. Every conveyance has it’s specific set of concerns. As a result your solicitor should be unwilling to predict the a precise timeframe to finalise your conveyancing in Bolsover.
