I am purchasing a end of terrace house in High Peak. We would like to carry out an extension to the side at the property.Will legal investigations on the property include checks to see if these alterations are allowed?
Your solicitor will check the registered title as conveyancing in High Peak can sometimes identify restrictions in the title documents which prohibit certain alterations or necessitated the consent of a 3rd party. Many works call for local authority planning permissions and approval under the building regulations. Certain areas are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which often prevent or impact extensions. You should check these issues with a surveyor prior to committing yourself to a purchase.

We would always advise that you speak with the solicitor carrying out your transaction.

I'm buying a new build house in High Peak with a loan from Nationwide Building Society. The builders would not move on the price so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of fixtures and fittings instead. The house builders rep advised me not inform my solicitor about the side-deal as it could impact my mortgage with the bank. Is this normal?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.
Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.
Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

This is due to the fact that on completion the sale price will be transferred electronically between the banks of the purchaser and seller's lawyer and at present this can only take place on a working day. It is not possible to complete on a weekend either.
