My colleague suggested that where I am buying in Oakdale I should carry out a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. What does it cover?
This is a search is occasionally included in the estimate for your Oakdale conveyancing searches.

It incorporates an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the Oakdale Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the type of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average Property Price, Crime details, Local Education with plans and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful data concerning Oakdale.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I put an offer in last month in what should have been a quick, no chain conveyancing. Oakdale is the location of the property. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in Oakdale are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Oakdale you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Oakdale may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.

There are only Sixty One years unexpired on my flat in Oakdale. I now wish to get lease extension but my landlord is can not be found. What should I do?
On the basis that you meet the appropriate requirements, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can apply to the County Court for an order to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will mean that your lease can be lengthened by the magistrate. However, you will be required to demonstrate that you or your lawyers have done all that could be expected to track down the freeholder. On the whole a specialist would be useful to conduct investigations and to produce a report to be accepted by the court as proof that the landlord can not be located. It is wise to seek advice from a solicitor both on devolving into the landlord’s disappearance and the application to the County Court overseeing Oakdale.
I inherited a studio flat in Oakdale, conveyancing formalities finalised half a dozen years ago. Can you give me give me an indication of the likely cost of a lease extension? Equivalent flats in Oakdale with a long lease are worth £197,000. The ground rent is £55 per annum. The lease comes to an end on 21st October 2077
With only 55 years left to run the likely cost is going to range between £31,400 and £36,200 plus legals.
The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to advice on a more accurate figure without more detailed investigations. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be other concerns that need to be considered and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not take any other action based on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
Do I need to have a meeting at the offices of the bank conveyancing panel solicitor to sign the legal charge? If so, I will choose one who does conveyancing in Oakdale so that I can attend their offices if required.
As opposed to 15 years ago, most lenders no longer require their conveyancing panel solicitor to witness the borrowers signature. You will still be obliged to provide ID Documents and there are still distinct advantages to using a local solicitor, in your case a conveyancing solicitor in Oakdale.
