I am purchasing a victorian detached house in Flintshire. Our aim is to an extension at the rear at the property.Will legal conveyancing on the property include enquiries to ascertain if these works were previously refused?
Your conveyancer will check the deeds as conveyancing in Flintshire will sometimes identify restrictions in the title documents which restrict certain changes or necessitated the consent of another owner. Some extensions require local authority planning consent and approval in accordance building regulations. Some locations are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which frequently prevent or affect extensions. You should check these issues with a surveyor before you commit yourself to a purchase.

Last September I purchased a leasehold property in Flintshire. Am I liable to pay service charges for periods before my ownership?
Where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous lessee and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. Strange as it may seem, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. A critical element of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to ensure to have an up to date clear service charge receipt before completion of your purchase. If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.
If you purchase part way through an accounting year you may be liable for charges not yet demanded even if they relate to a period prior to your purchase. In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).
I bought a 1 bedroom flat in Flintshire, conveyancing formalities finalised half a dozen years ago. Can you let me have an estimated range of the fair premium for a lease extension? Comparable flats in Flintshire with a long lease are worth £222,000. The ground rent is £50 invoiced annually. The lease ends on 21st October 2092
With just 71 years left to run we estimate the price of your lease extension to span between £9,500 and £11,000 plus professional fees.
The figure above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs in the absence of detailed investigations. Do not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be additional concerns that need to be taken into account and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not move forward based on this information before getting professional advice.
