I am helping my niece sell her property in Coalville. Does the solicitor order an energy assessment or do I organise this?
Following the abolition of Home Packs, EPC’s was left as a mandatory component of moving house. An energy performance certificate must be commissioned before the property is marketed. This is not as aspect of the sale process that law firms ordinarily organise. Where you are using a Coalville conveyancing solicitor they may help arrange energy assessments due to their contacts with reputable local assessors
My wife and I purchasing a terrace house in Coalville. We would like to carry out a loft conversion at the house.Will the conveyancing process involve enquiries to determine if these works are allowed?
Your solicitor will check the registered title as conveyancing in Coalville can on occasion reveal restrictions in the title deeds which restrict certain alterations or need the consent of a 3rd party. Certain extensions require local authority planning consent and approval in accordance building regulations. Some locations are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which often prevent or impact extensions. You should check these issues with a surveyor prior to committing yourself to a purchase.

I own a 2 bed flat in Coalville, conveyancing formalities finalised in 1996. Can you please calculate a probable premium for a statutory lease extension? Similar flats in Coalville with over 90 years remaining are worth £171,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £50 charged once a year. The lease terminates on 21st October 2098
With just 79 years left to run we estimate the premium for your lease extension to span between £7,600 and £8,800 as well as costs.
The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to advice on the actual costs without more comprehensive due diligence. You should not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be other concerns that need to be considered and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not take any other action based on this information without first getting professional advice.
What is the difference between surveying and conveyancing in Coalville?
Conveyancing - in Coalville or elsewhere - is the process of legally transferring legal title of property from one person to another. It involves the investigation of the title. Whether buying or selling, you should be aware of anything affecting the property such as proposals by government departments, illegal buildings, or outstanding rates. The conveyancer should conduct the appropriate searches and inquiries on the property. Surveying relates to the structure of a property itself. A surveyor will look at a house, flat and any outbuildings you’re purchasing and will help you find out about the condition of the building and, if there are problems, give you leverage for negotiating the purchase price down or asking the vendor to remedy the defects prior to you move in.
