Your solicitor should review the registered title as conveyancing in Nechells will sometimes reveal restrictions in the title documents which prevent categories of works or necessitated the permission of another owner. Some extensions need local authority planning permissions and approval in accordance building regulations. Some locations are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which often prevent or affect extensions. It would be sensible to check these things with a surveyor prior to committing yourself to a purchase.

Nechells conveyancing practices are familiar with conveyancing propertieson private. The conveyancing practitioner will investigate Land Registry data to find any rights or responsibilities.
