The survey revealed that no planning consent was obtained for an extension: What are the issues I’ll face?
The chartered surveyor inspecting the property will check any extensions or works that have occurred and highlight any concerns for the attention of your conveyancing solicitor, who will make enquiries with the local authority to establish whether the consents and building regulations are in place.
If the building regulations agreement is not in place, the vendor is not legally allowed to sell the property until they are, since the title deeds cannot be transferred to your ownership. If building requiring planning consent is present at the property but without proof of consent approval, the local authority might be willing to accept a retrospective approval, although this could take a long time, and, even then, they may instruct you, as the new owner, to return the building to its former state, which could be very costly.
Your solicitor will be able to advise you on the most appropriate course of action to take, including whether the retrospective planning or the reversal of building works can be renegotiated from the agreed sale price.
What average time does it take our conveyancing solicitor to finish all of the legal formalities on a maisonette in a sixties house?
The legal process can take anywhere between a month and 12 weeks, which can be hampered by a number of issues e.g. the speed of the vendor's conveyancing solicitor, or renegotiations. Our highly solicitors in Chiswick are exceptionally proactive completing as speedily as realistically possible.
Will fees for the conveyancing have any extra costs?
No. Homeward Legal's solicitors do not charge any extra, hidden charges to buy or sell a home. While comparing quotes, be aware that some firms only provide estimates disguised as quotes. The final bill you receive may be much more.
