I am assisting my mother sell her property in Horfield. Does the solicitor order the energy performance certificate or it is for me to coordinate?
After the demise of Home Packs, EPC’s was maintained a required part of moving property. An EPC must be commissioned before the property is placed on the market. It is not a task that law firms normally organise. Where you are using a Horfield conveyancing lawyer they may be able to arrange energy performance certificates due to their contacts with reputable local providers
I am aiming to move home in September. Should my conveyancing solicitor update the removal company on the completion day. On a separate note, can you put forward a removal company in Horfield. Conveyancing lawyer was found before I stumbled across this site.
On the afternoon of completion you can collect the keys from your selling agent but this can only take place once the vendors solicitors inform the agent that the monies to complete are in and the keys can be released. After that you should inform the removal men that you are ready to move in. As a matter of policy we do not recommend a specific removal company but can assist you in finding a residential property solicitor in Horfield or a lawyer that specialises in conveyancing in Horfield.
When it comes to mortgage companies such as Coventry BS, do Horfield conveyancers face an annual charge to be on the conveyancing panel?

What does a local search reveal regarding the house my wife and I buying in Horfield?
Horfield conveyancing often commences with the applying for local authority searches directly from your local Authority or through a personal search company such as Xpress Legal The local search is essential in every Horfield conveyancing purchase; as long as you don’t want any nasty surprises after you move into your property. The search should supply data on, amongst other things, details on planning applications relevant to the property (whether granted or refused), building control history, any enforcement action, restrictions on permitted development, nearby road schemes, contaminated land and radon gas; in all a total of thirteen topic sections.
Me and my brother own a terraced Victorian house in Horfield. Conveyancing solicitor represented me and National Westminster Bank. I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are a couple of entries: one for freehold, the second leasehold with the matching property. Is it worth asking National Westminster Bank to clarify?
You need to review the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register for mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Horfield and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they buy they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with purchasers. You can also enquire as to the position with your conveyancing practitioner who conducted the conveyancing.
Due to the encouragement of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a house in Horfield ahead of retaining conveyancers. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold overhang to the house. My surveyor advised that some banks will refuse to give a loan on a flying freehold home.
