I am buying a 3 bedroom semi in Kempsey. We would like to convert the garage to an office at the house.Will the conveyancing process include enquiries to see if these alterations are permitted?
Your solicitor should review the registered title as conveyancing in Kempsey can sometimes reveal restrictions in the title documents which prohibit certain works or require the permission of a 3rd party. Many extensions need local authority planning permissions and approval in accordance building regulations. Certain locations 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 ahead of any purchase.
I happen to be the only beneficiary of my late mum's estate with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in Kempsey. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in June. I want to move. I do know about the CML six month 'rule', meaning my proprietorship will be regarded the same way as though I had purchased the property in June. Do I have to wait half a year to sell?
The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ handbook obliges 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 impacted by that. How sensible a view mortgage companies take of it, depend on the bank as this obligation primarily exists to identify subsales or the quick reselling of property.

Should commercial conveyancing searches disclose impending roadworks that may impact a commercial premises in Kempsey?
Its becoming the norm that commercial conveyancing solicitors in Kempsey will execute a SiteSolutions Highways report as it reduces the time that conveyancers invest in looking into accurate data on highways that impact buildings and development assets in Kempsey.

How does conveyancing in Kempsey differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Kempsey contact us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is finished. This is because developers in Kempsey tend to buy the real estate, 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 Kempsey or who has acted in the same development.

My husband and I are novice buyers - had an offer accepted, but the estate agent has warned us that the vendor will only go ahead if we use the agent's chosen conveyancers as they need an ‘expedited deal’. Our preferred option is to instruct a high street conveyancer who is familiar with conveyancing in Kempsey
We suspect that the seller is not behind this request. If they desire ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a genuine purchaser is is going to put the whole deal at risk. Contact the sellers directly and make sure they understand (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are ready to go, with finances in place © you are chain free (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)but you intend to use your own,trusted Kempsey conveyancing firm - not the ones that will provide their estate agent a introducer fee or meet his conveyancing targets demanded by senior management.
