Can I change the purpose of use for a purchase as part of the conveyancing procedure?
Putting in a planning request to change the use of part or all of a property is a straightforward process and you can deal directly with the local authority, which authorises plans and requests. However, tying it in with a planned purchase of a property has its own problems, since you don’t yet formally own the property, and the length of time to get through the planning process (with no guarantee of success) will need to be factored into the purchase duration, which the seller may not agree to.
We would advise you to either buy the property and then put in the planning request after completion (or exchange at the very earliest), or buy a property that’s already fit for your purposes. Or you might be lucky to find a property that already has the relevant planning consents in place.
Do we need a surveyor to look into this Swinton house purchase?
Homeward Legal advise that all purchasers instruct a home surveyor to carry out a survey when you plan to buy in Swinton. A range defects affect a property. These can include subsidence or settlement.
What causes purchase conveyancing legal work to go on for so long?
The conveyancing process could be exposed to significant delays even in the best of circumstances. Some reasons are out of the solicitor's control. Homeward Legal know how stressful these delays can be and endeavour to diminish their consequences wherever a difference can be made. Common delays may include waiting for responses from third parties.
