If you had a top tip for selecting a conveyancing solicitor in Cudworth what would it be?
It would be unwise to be tempted by the lowest Cudworth conveyancing costs illustration. You really do get what you pay for when it comes to property lawyers. A cheap quote may mean that the conveyancing solicitor is handling a lot of jobs at one time and you won’t get the quality of service and the attention that you need. It is, however, wise to use a conveyancer who has a fixed fee on a no sale, no fee basis. This way, you know exactly what you’ll have to pay in ahead of time.
I am helping my step-mother sell her property in Cudworth. Will the conveyancer order the energy performance certificate or should I organise this?
Following the abolition of HIPs, energy performance certificates was kept a mandatory part of selling a house. An energy performance certificate must be commissioned in advance of the property being put on the market. It is not a task that conveyancers ordinarily arrange. If you are using a Cudworth conveyancing lawyer they might be willing to arrange EPC’s due to their contacts with long established local providers

The estate agent will need to be informed of your conveyancer's details (ensure that the property lawyers are on the bank’s approved list).

I am a negotiator for a reputable estate agent office in Cudworth where we have experienced a few flat sales derailed as a result of leases having less than 80 years remaining. I have been given inconsistent advice from local Cudworth conveyancing firms. Could you confirm whether the owner of a flat can start the lease extension process for the purchaser on completion of the sale?
Provided that the seller has owned the lease for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to commence the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. The benefit of this is that the proposed purchaser need not have to wait 2 years to extend their lease. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment has to be done before, or at the same time as completion of the sale.
An alternative approach is to agree the lease extension with the freeholder either before or after the sale. If you are informally negotiating there are no rules and so you cannot insist on the landlord agreeing to grant an extension or transferring the benefit of an agreement to the purchaser.
