I am assisting my niece sell her house in Kingsbury. Does the conveyancing solicitor order an energy performance certificate or it is for the owner to coordinate?

I've read lots of mortgage guides, I note that they all recommend that you should get your house surveyed prior to buying it. When I asked my local Kingsbury solicitor - who is on the Nottingham conveyancing panel - on this she said they don't do this and I need to contract an independent surveyor. Is that normal?

Nottingham will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Nottingham will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. You may wish to consider appointing your own Kingsbury surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller.

I am planning on selling our house in Kingsbury and the buyers lawyers are claiming that there is a risk of it being built on contaminated land. Any high street Kingsbury lawyer would know that there is no such problem. It does beg the question why the purchasers are using a national conveyancing outfit as opposed to a conveyancing solicitor in Kingsbury. We have lived in Kingsbury for 5 years we know that this is a non issue. Should we get in touch with our local Authority to obtain confirmation that the buyers are looking for.

It would appear that you have a conveyancing firm already. What do they say? You should enquire of your lawyer before you do anything. It is very possible that once the local authority has been informed of a potential issue it cannot be insured against (a bit like being diagnosed with a serious illness and then taking out life insurance to cover that same sickness)

The ideal method of choosing the right conveyancer is via trusted recommendation, so seek the opinion of colleagues and relatives who have bought a property in Kingsbury or the local estate agent or mortgage broker.

We are in the middle of buying a property in Kingsbury. Conveyancing solicitor has called to say the title is "Leasehold". Does this make a difference on the salability of the house?

Kingsbury conveyancing does not ordinarily involve leasehold houses. The crucial consideration here is the length of lease and the ground rent. If there are over a hundred years remaining with a peppercorn rent, it's almost the same as freehold, so it’s unlikely to affect the saleability too much.

On the flip side, if it's, say, fifty five years it will have a adverse impact on the value, and probably wouldn't be mortgageable. The remaining lease term and ground rent will be specified in the lease to be supplied to your property lawyer.
