I am buying a end of terrace house in Highbury. We would like to convert the garage to an office at the property.Will the conveyancing process involve checks to determine if these works were previously refused?
Your property lawyer should check the deeds as conveyancing in Highbury will occasionally reveal restrictions in the title documents which restrict certain changes or require the permission of a 3rd party. Some works require local authority planning permissions and approval in accordance building regulations. Some areas are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which often prevent or impact extensions.

How does conveyancing in Highbury differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Highbury approach us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is finished. This is because developers in Highbury usually acquire the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Highbury or who has acted in the same development.
