My wife and I purchasing a detached bungalow in Debenham. We would like to an extension at the rear at the property.Will legal investigations on the property involve checks to see if these works are permitted?

Your solicitor should check the registered title as conveyancing in Debenham can sometimes identify restrictions in the title documents which restrict categories of changes or need the consent of a 3rd party. Some additions require local authority planning consent and approval in compliance with building regulations. Some locations are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which often prevent or impact extensions. You should check these issues with a surveyor ahead of any purchase.

I'm the single recipient of my late father’s will with all property in now in my sole name, including the house in Debenham. The Debenham property was put into my name in June. I now wish to sell up. I do know about the Mortgage Lenders six month 'rule', which means that my proprietorship may be considered the same way as if I'd bought the property in June. Do I have to wait half a year to sell?

The CML handbook mandates conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you may be affected by that. Some mortgage companies would take a pragmatic view as this provision primarily exists to identify the purchase and immediately sell or the flipping of property.

I am due to exchange contracts on my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in September 2007, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's lender, Clydesdale are being a right pain. The Debenham solicitor who is on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel is saying indemnity insurance will be fine but Clydesdale are insisting on a building regulation certificate. Why do Clydesdale have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?

It is probably the case that Clydesdale have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Clydesdale 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 am looking for a ground for flat up to £305k and identified one close by in Debenham I like with amenity areas and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 49 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Debenham suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a lease with such few years left?

If you require a home loan that many years will likely be an issue. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for at least twenty four months you can ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this.
