I am buying a detached bungalow in Raunds. The intention is to carry out a loft conversion at the house.Will legal conveyancing on the property involve checks to determine if these alterations are permitted?
Your property lawyer should check the deeds as conveyancing in Raunds will sometimes reveal restrictions in the title deeds which prevent certain works or necessitated the consent of a 3rd party. Certain extensions require local authority planning consent and approval in compliance with building regulations. Many areas are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which frequently prevent or impact extensions. It would be wise to check these things with a surveyor before you commit yourself to a purchase.

Have completed on a a detached house in Raunds , how long should it take for the Land Registry to record the transfer to my name? My Raunds conveyancing solicitor has been very slow, so I want to be certain the registration formalities are addressed.
There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Raunds registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timescales can vary depending on who lodges the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry communicate with any interested parties. As of today in the region of 80% of such applications are completed in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be protracted hold-ups. Registration is effected once the purchaser is living at the property therefore 'speed' is not usually primary concern yet if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your conveyancer can speak with the land registry and explain the circumstances.

My wife and I may need to sub-let our Raunds 1st floor flat for a while due to taking a sabbatical. We instructed a Raunds conveyancing firm in 2002 but they have since shut and we did not think at the time get any advice as to whether the lease allows us to sublet. How do we find out?
Notwithstanding that your previous Raunds conveyancing solicitor is no longer available you can review your lease to check if it allows you to sublet the property. The accepted inference is that if the lease is non-specific, subletting is allowed. Quite often there is a prerequisite that you are obliged to obtain permission via your landlord or some other party in advance of subletting. This means you not allowed to sublet without prior consent. Such consent must not not be unreasonably turned down. If your lease does not allow you to sublet you will need to ask your landlord for their consent.
