A friend advised me that in buying a property in Rowley Regis there may be a number of restrictions preventing external changes to the property. Is this right?
We are aware of anumerous of properties in Rowley Regis which have some sort of restriction or requirement of consent to external changes. Part of the conveyancing in Rowley Regis should determine what restrictions are applicable and advising you as part of a ROT that should be sent to you.
We are purchasing a end of terrace house in Rowley Regis. The intention is to carry out a loft conversion at the property.Will the conveyancing process involve enquiries to see if these alterations are permitted?
Your solicitor will check the registered title as conveyancing in Rowley Regis will occasionally reveal restrictions in the title documents which restrict certain changes or require the consent of another owner. Many additions need local authority planning permissions and approval in compliance with building regulations. Some locations are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which frequently prevent or affect extensions. It would be prudent to check these issues with a surveyor before you commit yourself to a purchase.
My husband and I have organised the release of further funds on our mortgage from HSBC as we want to carry out alterations to our home in Rowley Regis. Are we obliged to select a bricks and mortar Rowley Regis solicitor on the HSBC conveyancing panel to deal with the paperwork?
HSBC do not ordinarily appoint firms on their conveyancing panel to deal with such a matter. If they do require any legal work then you would need to ensure that such a lawyer was on the HSBC conveyancing panel.
I got the keys to my home on 1 September and my personal details is not yet on the land registry website. Should I be concerned? My conveyancing solicitor in Rowley Regis expressed confidence that it would be formalised inside ten days. Are titles in Rowley Regis particularly slow to register?
As far as conveyancing in Rowley Regis registration is no quicker or slower than anywhere else in England and Wales. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can vary subject to the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry communicate with any interested persons or bodies. Currently roughly three quarters of submission are fully addressed in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be extensive hold-ups. Registration takes place after the new owner is living at the property so 'speed' is not always an essential issue but if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your solicitor should communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.

I am looking for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and found one round the corner in Rowley Regis I like with a park and transport links in the vicinity, however it's only got 61 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Rowley Regis in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a short lease?
Should you need a home loan the shortness of the lease may be an issue. Discount the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the property for at least twenty four months you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this.
