I am buying a 3 bedroom semi in Walsall. The intention is to carry out an extension to the side at the house.Will legal work on the property involve checks to ascertain if these works are permitted?
Your conveyancer will check the deeds as conveyancing in Walsall will on occasion reveal restrictions in the title documents which prevent categories of works or require the permission of a 3rd party. Certain works need local authority planning permissions and approval under the building regulations. Certain areas are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which often prevent or affect extensions. You should check these things with a surveyor prior to committing yourself to a purchase.
I have instructed a Walsall conveyancing practitioner having checked that they are on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?

Your lawyer 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 Walsall postcode. As you are getting a mortgage with Leeds Building Society, you could contact them to see if they have a list of approved surveyors in Walsall.
I have finally had an offer on an apartment in Walsall accepted, the vendors do however have an associated purchase. The vendors have placed an offer on somewhere, however it’s not been accepted yet, and have viewings of other flats booked. I have instructed a bricks and mortar conveyancing solicitor in Walsall. What do I do now? At what stage do I apply for the mortgage with TSB?
It is understandable to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket too early (home loan application is in the region of £1k, then valuation, Walsall conveyancing search fees, etc). First, you must check that your conveyancing practitioner is on the TSB conveyancing panel. As to the subsequent steps this very much depends on the specifics of your case, attraction to the property and on the state of the market. In a rising market the majority of home buyers will apply for a home loan with TSB and arrange for the valuation and only if it was satisfactory would they pay their solicitor to proceed with the conveyancing in Walsall.

Being a tenant I am on the hook for a service charge for my flat in Walsall. Due to losing my job and personal issues I slipped into arrears with payments. The managing agents agreed a clearance schedule but there is still approximately £1750 outstanding at the current time.
I now wish to sell and I am nervous that this could hold me back if I have to pay off the amount due first. Do I have to settle before - is this practicable?
You should check with the solicitor conducting your Walsall conveyancing but it might be possible to agree for the debt to be passed to the buyers. The purchase price payable would be reduced to reflect the amount of debt they assume. They could then deal with the arrears after completion of the sale.
