I just bought a house at auction in South East London. Conveyancing is necessary. What is next?
Given that you are now for in every practical sense signed on the dotted line you now have to retain a conveyancing lawyer quickly as you will have a tight a fixed date to complete the transaction. Every auction property should have an associated auction pack. This will likely include the copy title deeds, local authority and drainage searches. Where you are dealing with leasehold premises the auction papers should include a copy of the lease, management information and a sellers leasehold information form and associated conveyancing documentation specific to leasehold premises. You should pass this on to your appointed conveyancing solicitor as soon as possible. You also need to ensure that you have funds organised to complete the transaction on the set completion date.
I am buying a detached bungalow in South East London. The intention is to carry out a loft conversion at the house.Will the conveyancing process include investigations to ascertain if these alterations were previously refused?
Your property lawyer should check the deeds as conveyancing in South East London can on occasion reveal restrictions in the title documents which restrict categories of changes or require the consent of another owner. Certain works require local authority planning permissions and approval in compliance with building regulations. Some locations are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which often prevent or impact extensions. You should check these issues with a surveyor ahead of any purchase.
I am expecting a OIP from RBS this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do RBS recommend any South East London solicitors on the RBS conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?
You will need to appoint South East London solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the RBS conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and RBS through the process.

Where there is an Undertaking being granted there is the risk of forfeiture of the Headlease subject to relief if one or more of the Underlessees are willing to accept the original Head Lessee’s obligations as otherwise relief will be denied to the Underlessees. The only alternatives are the Head Lessor agreeing not to forfeit the Headlease or the Head Lessee guaranteeing to the Underlessees that it will not be in breach of the Headlease. Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified. Forfeiture - bankruptcy or liquidation must not apply under this provision. Please supply evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry. Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents.
