My friend suggested that if I am buying in Burton Bradstock I should 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 quoted for as part of the standard Burton Bradstock conveyancing searches. It is a large document of about 40 pages, listing and setting out significant information about Burton Bradstock around the property and the people living there. It includes an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the Burton Bradstock Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the demographics of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average House Prices, Crime statistics, Local Education with plans and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful data about Burton Bradstock.
Despite weeks of looking the Title Certificate and documents to our home can not be found. The lawyers who handled the conveyancing in Burton Bradstock 5 years ago have long since closed. What are my options?
Nowadays there are copies made of almost everything, and your lawyer will be aware precisely where to find all the relevant paperwork so you may purchase or dispose of your property without any difficulty. Where copies can’t be located, your conveyancer can arrange cover in the form of insurance or indemnities against future claims on your premises.
I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and identified one near me in Burton Bradstock I like with open areas and transport links nearby, the downside is that it only has 52 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Burton Bradstock suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?
Should you need a mortgage the shortness of the lease may be problematic. Discount the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this.

There are limited grounds that a landlord can refrain from granting a lease renewal and the rules are complex.
