A colleague informed me that in purchasing a property in Redruth there may be a number of restrictions affecting the ability to carry out external changes to the property. Is this right?
We are aware of a number of properties in Redruth which have some sort of restriction or requirement of consent to carry out external changes. Part of the conveyancing in Redruth should determine what restrictions are applicable and advising you as part of a ROT that should be sent to you.
I have instructed a Redruth conveyancing practitioner having checked that they are on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?
Yorkshire BS will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Yorkshire BS will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. Your conveyancing practitioner will not organise the survey but they may be able to put you in touch with a local one that they recommend. RICS offers a find a surveyor service (just google it) where you can search for a qualified surveyor by your Redruth postcode. As you are getting a mortgage with Yorkshire BS, you could contact them to see if they have a list of approved surveyors in Redruth.

Our conveyancer has advised that he intends to complete and exchange simultaneously on the disposal of our £200,000 maisonette in Redruth in 5 days. The management company has quoted £312 for Certificate of Compliance, insurance certificate and 3 years statements of service charge. Is it legal for a freeholder to charge an administration fee for a flat conveyance in Redruth?
Redruth conveyancing on leasehold maisonettes more often than not involves the purchaser’s solicitor sending enquiries for the landlord to address. Although the landlord is not legally bound to answer such questions most will be willing to do so. They are at liberty to invoice a reasonable administration fee for answering questions or supplying documentation. There is no upper cap for such fees. The average costs for the paperwork that you are referring to is over three hundred pounds, in some transactions it exceeds £800. The administration charge invoiced by the landlord must be sent together with a synopsis of entitlements and obligations in respect of administration fees, otherwise the invoice is technically not due. In reality you have little choice but to pay whatever is demanded should you wish to sell the property.
