A relative suggested that if I am buying in Brampton I should ask my conveyancer to carry out a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. Can you explain what the purpose of this search is?
A search of this type is usually included in the estimate for your Brampton conveyancing searches.

It includes an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the local Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the type of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average House Prices, Crime statistics, Brampton Education with plans and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful information concerning Brampton.
I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and found one close by in Brampton I like with open areas and transport links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 52 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Brampton in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?
If you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will be an issue. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you could 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 existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor concerning this matter.
My husband and I are novice buyers - agreed a price, yet the estate agent advised that the owners will only proceed if we use their recommended lawyers as they are insisting on a ‘quick sale’. We would rather use a high street conveyancer with experience of conveyancing in Brampton
We suspect that the owner is not behind this request. Should the seller want ‘a quick sale', alienating a serious purchaser is likely to cause more damage than good. Contact the vendors directly and make sure they comprehend that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are excited to move forward, with mortgage lined up © you are unencumbered (d) you wish to move quickly (e)however you intend to instruct your own,trusted Brampton conveyancing solicitors - not the ones that will earn their negotiator at the agency a kickback or hit his conveyancing figures demanded by senior management.
Am in the process of buying my 1st house in Brampton. Conveyancing lawyer already appointed. The mortgage adviser suggested that a survey is not necessary as the property was only constructed in 2002.
At the very least you should order a Home Buyer's Report. As the property is over 10 years old the property will not benefit from a warranty, so you would be well advised not to take a risk. Where a property of this age shows no signs of defects a Home Buyer's report may be enough. The report should highlight any apparent problems and recommend further investigation if appropriate. Where there are any indications of material issues obtain a comprehensive Building Survey from the beginning.
