Following the demise of Home Information Packs, energy performance certificates became a compulsory part of selling a house. An EPC should be commissioned prior to the property being advertised. This is not a task that conveyancers ordinarily organise. Where you are using a Duxford conveyancing solicitor they may be able to arrange EPC’s due to their contacts with long established local providers

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on last month in what should have been a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Duxford is the location of the property. What do you suggest?

Flying freeholds in Duxford are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Duxford you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds diligently. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Duxford may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.

Am I right to be wary about estate agents that I am dealing with are recommending a national conveyancing firm rather than a High Street Duxford conveyancing firm?

As with lots of professional services, often input from relatives can be worth their weight in gold. Yet there are many players in a conveyancing deal; estate agents, mortgage brokers and lenders might all recommend solicitors to use. On occasion the conveyancers might be known to one of the organisations as being good in their field, but sometimes there might be a financial incentive behind the endorsement. You are free to select your own lawyer. Don't forget that some mortgage providers have an approved list of solicitors you must use for the lender aspect of your home move.

I see that you have a search directory listing firms on the mortgage company conveyancing panel. Do Duxford conveyancing companies pay you a commission if I appoint them for my own house purchase?
