We are buying a 3 bedroom semi in Openshaw. We would like to convert the garage to a playroom at the property.Will the conveyancing process involve checks to see if these works were previously refused?
Your property lawyer will check the deeds as conveyancing in Openshaw will occasionally reveal restrictions in the title deeds which restrict certain works or need the consent of a 3rd party. Certain additions need local authority planning consent and approval in compliance with building regulations. Certain locations are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which often prevent or impact extensions.

I have paid off my mortgage with Coventry BS. I assume I don't need a Openshaw conveyancing practitioner on the Coventry BS panel to discharge the mortgage at the Land Registry. Please confirm.
If you have finished paying off your Coventry BS mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Coventry BS mortgage from the register. Coventry BS, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:
- but are not moving to another property
- where Coventry BS has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
- Coventry BS has instructed the Land Registry to do so
I have been on the look out for a flat up to £195,000 and found one round the corner in Openshaw I like with a park and transport links in the vicinity, however it's only got 61 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Openshaw for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a lease with such few years left?
If you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be an issue. Reduce the price by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you could ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this.
