Auction property Legal pack changed without my knowledge?

Hi
There is something strange . Clearly the property is a freehold property and one should have examined the Office Copy Entries. These would have a date they were issued and should have been very recent and further would have given a title number They would also have shown if any part of the property was subject to a long lease . So what exactly was contained in the contract that was signed???? Did you get A Solicitor to advise and examine the legal pack???... Read More

The No Dss Debate - Landlords Alliance advice

I think its absolutely disgusting that there should be ANY discriminating and ALL adverts should make it quite clear. For example they should clearly state . Scumbags, druggies, pis heads ,arsonists Millwall suporters all are welcome Including suckers i.e those who get up early in the morning to go to work . Part payment of rent with money off coupons from F.W Woolworths or British Home stores unfortunately are not accepted... Read More

Loft bedroom records cause problems adding bathroom?

Reply to the comment left by Ryan Whelpdale at 01/12/2018 - 13:14
When you purchased the seller would, have completed a property information form and a question would have been asked if any building works had been carried out , This assumes that the person you purchased from was not the original builder. I suggest that you examine the original planning consent and the [plans that went with it. I F your local authority still have it

You should have received at least a copy of the Lease and as you own the Freehold you should also have the Counterpart so you should know if the loft forms part of the Leasehold interest. In respect of the valuation report . One therefore assumes that a mortgage was obtained when purchased and the position is some mortgage lenders send it out with the mortgage offer others will not and will not even if requested.
In any event not a lot is contained in a valuation report, sometimes for example it may state . Solicitor to check all necessary consents were obtained for the kitchen extension or some other matter. Do bear in mind the general time limits for bringing any action for breach of Building Regs/ planning permission and also permitted developments rights which differ for flats/maisonettes. You may wish to see the original planning consent to see what was originally given permission for

Is one to assume that the property is a Leasehold property?I would suggest that one looks at the actual Lease which should amongst other matters define the extent of the demised premises . Does it actually include the loft space ???? Further the lease should have a plan showing the actual lay out . Does this plan show the loft space set out as part of the demised premises???If this is the case one would be entitled to at least consider that what is now in the loft was part of the original building or conversion and NOT some additional work . It is quite common in Leasehold properties NOT to include the loft space and if that is the case here Planning/Bld Regs Is the least of your problems
