We are purchasing a terrace house in Sneyd Park. We would like to carry out a loft conversion at the house.Will legal due diligence on the property involve enquiries to ascertain if these works were previously refused?
Your conveyancer should check the deeds as conveyancing in Sneyd Park will on occasion reveal restrictions in the title documents which prevent categories of changes or require the consent of a 3rd party. Certain extensions need local authority planning permissions and approval under the building regulations. Some areas are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which frequently prevent or affect extensions. You should check these things with a surveyor before you commit yourself to a purchase.
When it comes to lenders such as Kent Reliance, do Sneyd Park lawyers have to pay an annual charge to be on the list of approved solicitors?
We are unaware of any mortgage company fees to register on their panel, although some do charge an administration charge to deal with the processing of the conveyancing panel application.
The formalities of my remortgage has taken place for my property in Sneyd Park. Conveyancing was of an acceptable standard but I feel I should register my dissatisfaction about the lender. How does one go about formally complaining?
All lenders have complaints procedures. Your first point of contact should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Care Department at head office. We understand that complaints to a lender are sorted out very quickly. If you feel the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service with full details of your complaint.
I purchased a semi-detached Edwardian house in Sneyd Park. Conveyancing solicitor represented me and Nottingham Building Society. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and there are two entries: one for freehold, another for leasehold with the matching property. Is it worth asking Nottingham Building Society to clarify?
You should read the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Sneyd Park and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they sell they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with lenders. You can also check the situation with the conveyancing solicitor who conducted the conveyancing.

Will the freehold then be transferred for a nominal consideration (not exceeding £100) to the Management Company? The Landlord must covenant to assume the management if the Management Company goes into liquidation or otherwise defaults in running the management scheme. The Vendor must covenant to keep unoccupied units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore. Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose?
How can the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 impact my business premises in Sneyd Park and how can your lawyers assist?
The particular law that you refer to affords security of tenure to business lessees, giving them the right to make a request to court for a continuation of occupancy when the lease reaches an end. There are limited grounds that a landlord can refuse a lease renewal and the rules are involved. We are happy to direct you to commercial conveyancing firms who use the act to your advantage and help with commercial conveyancing in Sneyd Park
