I am helping my step-mother sell her house in Linton. Does the conveyancing solicitor commission the energy assessment or should I organise this?
Following the abolition of HIPs, energy assessments was maintained a compulsory part of selling a house. An energy performance certificate must be commissioned before the property is advertised. It is not as aspect of the sale process that law firms normally arrange. If you are using a Linton conveyancing lawyer they may help arrange energy assessments due to their relationships with reputable local providers
We had selected conveyancing lawyers based in Linton on the Clydesdale solicitor panel. They have just billed me a supplemental fee for the legal aspects of the Clydesdale mortgage. Is this an additional conveyancing fee set by Clydesdale?
Unfortunately, as long as it is in their Terms of Engagement or Quote then yes your conveyancer can charge a fee for this. This fee is not set by Clydesdale but by your Linton conveyancer. Plenty of firms on the Clydesdale panel will levy an ‘acting for lender’ fee and others do not.
I had a mortgage agreed in principle with UBS. Linton conveyancing lawyers are instructed. What is the average time that one could expect to receive a mortgage offer from UBS?
Some lenders take longer than others. Have UBS done the survey? Have you informed UBS as to your lawyers' details and checked that your lawyers are on the UBS conveyancing panel? It is not unusual for a mortgage offer to take a month to come through.
