My wife and I buying a 3 bedroom semi in Bozeat. The intention is to carry out a loft conversion at the property.Will legal work on the property involve checks to determine if these works are prohibited?
Your property lawyer should review the registered title as conveyancing in Bozeat can occasionally reveal restrictions in the title documents which prohibit certain works or require the consent of another owner. Some additions require local authority planning permissions and approval in compliance with building regulations. Many locations are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which often prevent or affect extensions. You should check these issues with a surveyor ahead of any purchase.
I am selling my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in December 2010, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's mortgage company, Co-operative are being problematic. The Bozeat solicitor who is on the Co-operative conveyancing panel is recommending indemnity insurance as a solution but Co-operative are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Co-operative have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Co-operative have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Co-operative may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.
I have instructed a Bozeat solicitor having made sure that they are on the Nationwide conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?
Nationwide will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Nationwide 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 Bozeat 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.
Am I better off to choose a Bozeat conveyancing lawyer who is local to the property I am buying? An old friend can deal with the conveyancing but her office is 200miles drive away.
The benefit of a local Bozeat conveyancing firm is that you can visit the firm to sign paperwork, present your identification documents and pester them where appropriate. Having local Bozeat know how is a plus. That being said nothing is more important than finding someone that will do a good and efficient job. If other friends have used your friend and the majority were content that must outweigh using an unknown Bozeat conveyancing solicitor just because they are based in the area.
