My wife and I purchasing a end of terrace house in Stanmore. We would like to an extension at the rear at the property.Will legal conveyancing on the property involve enquiries to determine if these alterations are permitted?

Your conveyancer should review the registered title as conveyancing in Stanmore will sometimes identify restrictions in the title documents which restrict categories of alterations or require the permission of a 3rd party. Certain additions require local authority planning consent and approval in compliance with building regulations. Certain areas are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which frequently prevent or affect extensions. You should check these issues with a surveyor ahead of any purchase.

I have paid off my mortgage with Barclays. I assume I don't need a Stanmore conveyancer on the Barclays panel to discharge the mortgage at the Land Registry. Please confirm.

If you have finished paying off your Barclays mortgage, they may send you evidence showing that you have paid it off. Alternatively they may notify the Land Registry directly. The Land Registry need to see this evidence before they will remove the Barclays mortgage from the register. Barclays, and any evidence they send you, will determine the action you need to take. In cases where no conveyancer is acting for you and you have paid off your mortgage:

  1. but are not moving to another property
  2. where Barclays has sent the Land Registry the discharge electronically, and
  3. Barclays has instructed the Land Registry to do so
The Land Registry will send you a letter confirming that your Barclays mortgage has been paid off.

Barclays have agreed my home loan in principle, my offer on a apartment in Stanmore has been agreed to, now what?

The estate agent will need to know who your solicitors are (be sure the conveyancing practitioners are on the lender’s approved list). Call up Barclays or the financial adviser and complete any relevant paperwork. Barclays will instruct a valuer who will get in touch with the estate agent or owners to arrange an appointment. Once carried out (assuming no problems) it takes on average a week to receive the mortgage offer. Barclays will issue the offer to you and your solicitors. The transaction will then take it’s course according the nature and complexity of the conveyancing in Stanmore.

I am looking for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and identified one round the corner in Stanmore I like with amenity areas and transport links in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 49 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Stanmore in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?

Should you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be problematic. Reduce the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this.

When appointing a conveyancer for your lease extension (regardless if they are a Stanmore conveyancing practice) it is most important that they be familiar with the legislation and specialises in this area of work. We advise that you speak with two or three firms including non Stanmore conveyancing practices before you instructing a firm. Where the conveyancing practice is ALEP accredited then that’s a bonus. The following questions could be useful:
