The solicitors acting for you will not only need to liaise with the seller’s solicitors but also the council’s solicitors with regards to the removal of the covenant. You should check if the house in an area where article 4 direction has been made preventing HMOs, your local search by your solicitors will identify this.
The sale is not legally binding until exchange of contracts so this will need to be taken into account when liaising with the council and I’d suggest that nothing is completed with the council until exchange, and then completion can be set once the deed has been completed with the council to enable the lenders requirements to be satisfied.
Your conveyancer will probably charge an extra fee for this work.
