I am helping my aunt sell her flat in Fordingbridge. Does the solicitor commission the energy assessment or it is for the owner to coordinate?
Following the abolition of Home Packs, energy performance certificates was kept a compulsory part of moving house. An energy assessment must be to hand in advance of the property being marketed. It is not a task that law firms normally organise. If you are instructing a Fordingbridge conveyancing solicitor they may be able to arrange energy performance certificates due to their relationships with long established local energy assessors
is it true that all Fordingbridge solicitors on the Barclays conveyancing panel are overseen by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority?
As a firm of solicitors, in order to be on the Barclays conveyancing panel they would need to be regulated by the Solicitors Regulatory Authority. Some mortgage companies do list licenced conveyancers on their panel in which case such firms would be governed by the CLC.
We have a mortgage agreed in principle with RBS. Fordingbridge conveyancing solicitors were chosen. How long does it take for RBS to issue the offer to the property lawyer?
There is no definitive answer here. Have RBS done the valuation? Have you informed RBS as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the RBS conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.
Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly picked up during conveyancing in Fordingbridge?
Covenants that are restrictive in nature can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the legal transfer of property in Fordingbridge. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’
Due to the advice of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Fordingbridge ahead of appointing conveyancers. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold overhang to the house. My surveyor has said that some mortgage companies will not issue a mortgage on such a home.
