My wife and I purchasing a terrace house in Droitwich Spa. We would like to carry out an extension to the side at the property.Will the conveyancing process involve investigations to ascertain if these alterations are prohibited?
Your property lawyer will review the registered title as conveyancing in Droitwich Spa can occasionally identify restrictions in the title deeds which prohibit certain changes or need the consent of a 3rd party. Certain works require local authority planning consent and approval in accordance building regulations. Certain areas are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which frequently prevent or impact extensions. It would be sensible to check these things with a surveyor before you commit yourself to a purchase.
We were going to get a OIP from UBS this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do UBS recommend any Droitwich Spa solicitors on the UBS conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?
You will need to appoint Droitwich Spa solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the UBS conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and UBS through the process.
About to purchase flat in Droitwich Spa. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Skipton conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Droitwich Spa solicitor is on the Skipton conveyancing panel.
I have todayfound out that Wolstenholmes have closed. They carried out my conveyancing in Droitwich Spa for a purchase of a leasehold apartment 10 months ago. How can I establish that the property is in my name in the name of the previous owner?
The quickest method to see if the premises is in your name, you can carry out a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Droitwich Spa conveyancing specialists.
I decided to have a survey done on a property in Droitwich Spa prior to retaining conveyancers. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold overhang to the property. Our surveyor has said that some banks will not grant a loan on such a home.

I need to appoint a conveyancing solicitor for remortgage conveyancing in Droitwich Spa. I happened to stumble across a web site which seems to have the perfect solution If there is a chance to get all this stuff done via phone that would be preferable. Should I be concerned?

As usual with these online conveyancers you need to read ALL the small print - did you notice the extra charge for dealing with the mortgage?
We have been told by many family members to expect 6-8 weeks for Droitwich Spa conveyancing to complete.This was four weeks ago. The draft contract was only forwarded to my conveyancing practitioner last week so does the clock start running now?
Six to 8 weeks is a very approximate timescale. Giving assurances as to accurately how how many weeks Droitwich Spa conveyancing will take is an impossible task. Without fail every Droitwich Spa conveyancing transaction will have it’s specific set of complexities. As a result your conveyancer should be unwilling to give representations as to the length of time it will take to finalise your conveyancing in Droitwich Spa.
