Conveyancing In Bridgend Q & A's
If there are outstanding works approved in the planning consent, can I still use it?
Generally speaking, planning permission legally has to have an expiry date, which is usually for a period of three years from approval for the building work to start (and not necessarily complete, unless the consent has a suitable caveat).
This means that the consent is against the property and the intended construction rather than the person who made the application. As such, if the planning consent remains within the expiry period, the agreement is transferrable to the new owner of the property.
Your solicitor will be able to provide further advice, once enquiries with the local authority have been satisfactorily completed as part of the conveyancing.
How long on average does it take the lawyer to carry out all of the conveyancing work for a detached building?
The conveyancing process can take anywhere from 3 weeks and three months, which can depend on any number of factors, for example the speed of the seller's conveyancer, or the time taken getting replies to enquiries. Our lawyers are very results-focused with a view to you moving home as promptly as achievable.

Who do I give the appliance warranties to if they are being left at the property I’m selling?
If you are leaving what is generally termed ‘white goods’ at the property you are selling, which are still in warranty, the documentation should be given to your solicitor so that any warranties can be given to the buyer’s solicitor as part of the contract.
Note that, should you be leaving any electrical (or other) items at the property, this should be made clear on the Fixtures and Fittings Form (TA10) and agreed as early as possible between you and the buyers, particularly if you want financial recompense in so doing.
Which specific conveyancing searches will my solicitor in Bridgend apply for when buying a Bridgend house?
