I am helping my step-mother sell her house in Carmarthen. Will the conveyancing solicitor order an energy assessment or it is for the seller to see to?
After the abolition of Home Information Packs, energy performance certificates remained a mandatory part of moving property. An energy performance certificate must be to hand in advance of the property being placed on the market. This is not something that law firms normally arrange. Where you are using a Carmarthen conveyancing lawyer they may be able to arrange energy assessments given their contacts with reputable local providers
Is it the case that all Carmarthen solicitors on the Co-operative conveyancing panel are regulated by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority?
As solicitors, in order to be on the Co-operative approved list of solicitors they would need to be regulated by the SRA. Some banks do permit licenced conveyancers on their panel and in such a situation the firms would be regulated by the CLC.
We previously instructed conveyancing lawyers based in Carmarthen on the Skipton solicitor panel. They have just billed me a separate amount for handling the Skipton mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee set by Skipton?
As unfair as it may seem, as long as it’s in their Terms of Engagement or estimate then yes your conveyancing practitioner is entitled to levy a fee for this. The charge is not dictated by Skipton but by your Carmarthen property lawyer. Numerous firms on the Skipton panel will levy ’dealing with mortgage’ fee and others do not.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £305k and found one near me in Carmarthen I like with amenity areas and station nearby, however it only has 49 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Carmarthen suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?
Should you need a mortgage that many years may be problematic. Reduce the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the premises for at least 2 years you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor concerning this matter.
