I'm in the process of switching my existing standard home loan to a Buy to Let Coventry Building Society mortgage. I have been informed by my broker that I must appoint a conveyancer for this.

I am helping my aunt sell her house in Haydock. Does the conveyancer arrange the EPC or it is for the owner to see to?
Following the demise of HIPs, EPC’s was kept a required element of selling a property. An energy assessment should be to hand prior to the property being marketed.

I am selling my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in August 2010, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s mortgage company, TSB are being a right pain. The Haydock solicitor who is on the TSB conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but TSB are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do TSB have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that TSB have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why TSB may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.

We're new on the property ladder - agreed a price, yet the selling agent informed us that the vendor will only move forward if we use their preferred solicitors as they need a ‘quick sale’. We would rather use a family conveyancer used to conveyancing in Haydock
It is highly unlikely the sellers are behind this. Should the seller desire ‘a quick sale', turning down a serious buyer is counter productive. Try to communicate with the vendors directly and make the point that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances arranged © you have nothing to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you intend to instruct your own,trusted Haydock conveyancing firm - as opposed tothose that will provide the estate agent a commission or achieve conveyancing figures set by corporate headquarters.
