  1. Hi All, I am new to this site and not even sure if this is the right forum but I could do with some help and advice if anyone wouldn't mind? My Mum was given notice on her flat back in October and her tenancy is due to end at the end of this week (28th November). The landlord is selling. However the new buyers of the flat would like my Mum to stay on as a tenant. Of course my Mum would like to stay in the property as she has been there for years but the sale of the flat has not gone through yet and the letting agent have not put anything in writing about her staying in the flat and s
  2. Hi. I’m planning building an extension at the rear of my property. To maximize space, I would like to use the existing wall of my neighbour’s extension; by this I mean build onto, not build up to. The final configuration would be: their internal wall | insulation | shared central wall | insulation | my internal wall The existing wall isn’t considered a part wall, as it is solely on my neighbour’s property, although is along the boundary. I have spoken to my neighbour who is happy to allow me to do this, however, my party wall surveyor has requested written permission before he c
  3. Hey everyone! First post here, I’ve been listening to the pod for 2 years now and done some searching on here and other forums and and can’t quite find what I’m looking for so thought I’d give it a shot... I am looking to buy a fixer-upper in south west London and need to determine what the maximum I am willing to offer. I wonder if any of you smart folk have any suggestions as to how I calculate this. The property This is a 3 bed, 1 bathroom flat with planning permission to become a 4 bed 4 bathroom with a roof terrace. It is in need of significant refurbishment to bring
  4. Hi everyone, I've been a bit quiet on the forum recently as I thought buying a property was a long way off and I've been focusing on work. However, the other night I came across a property while browsing RM, which needs a hell of a lot of work, but seems like it could be the perfect one for me and my partner to get ourselves onto the property ladder (albeit a bit sooner than we'd expected), to make a nice home for ourselves and to gain some equity. I've attached the current plans and what I'd one day, perhaps next year with a bit more saving like to do to it below. In
  5. Hi all, I own a flat in a converted house, with a share of freehold (I, along with the other flat owners, are equal shareholders in the management company which owns the freehold). All the owners have agreed that as our leases only have 55ish years remaining we should extend them, and this has been agreed and a solicitor engaged to handle this. I recently received my new counterpart lease, and am a little surprised at its format, so am interested to know from more experienced folk if this is OK and normal. The new counterpart lease is a very bare-bones document compared
  6. Hi all, Hope you can help! I own a leasehold flat with a remaining lease term of 84 years. Myself and the other leasehold flat owner would like to buy the freehold. The management company that currently own the freehold want to charge us a fee just to get a quote to buy the freehold - is this normal? And if so, is there a 'fair' price to be aware of? The flat is based in Kent, can anyone recommend a good solicitor to deal with the lease extension? Thanks very much in advance Ohil
  7. Hello property hub, many thanks for all the great advice on here. Such a wealth of knowledge, I really appreciate it. Just a quick question, we are looking to refinance on our current residential property and have been told we can take out £40k in equity. We are living in Dulwich in SE London at the moment, with a 2 bed first floor split level flat. Would it be best to invest the £40k in a buy to let in the north or use the planing permission we have on our current property to add and third bedroom and bathroom to increase the value of our residential pro
  8. Hi. I am just in the final stages of buying a 3 bed semi-detached with a vast single storey extension to the rear, opening up a large kitchen and through into a conservatory/sun room. The sellers cannot provide any certificates or anything relating to the approval of planning permission. However they do have a letter from the local council saying the work that has been done is in line with building regulations. Does this alone prove that planning permission was approved? We are buying the property with cash initially, however in 4-5 years we will be needing to take out a mortgage on t
  9. Hi Sorry if this is a really stupid question but re buying a property with a view to force/add value by extending and presuming that it's not Grade II listed or in a conservation area... How can you tell/find out what development is allowed? Is there a general rule about certain works? 1. For example, if it's a terraced house with a side return, can you extend the back of the house on the ground floor to fill that width, and even do the same with the first floor? 2. Or if it's an end terrace and there is a side gate with a path down to your garden, can you extend the house w
