Following the abolition of Home Packs, EPC’s was left as a required part of selling a house. An EPC should be to hand before the property is put on the market. It is not a task that solicitors normally organise. If you are using a Liskeard conveyancing practitioner they may be able to arrange EPC’s given their relationships with reputable local assessors
We previously chose conveyancers located in Liskeard on the Bank of Ireland solicitor panel. They have just billed me a separate sum for the legal aspects of the Bank of Ireland mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee set by Bank of Ireland?
Provided it is contained in their Terms and Conditions or estimate then yes your conveyancer can levy a fee for this. This charge is not dictated by Bank of Ireland but by your Liskeard conveyancing practitioner. Numerous firms on the Bank of Ireland panel will charge an ‘acting for lender’ fee but many practices include it on their overall fee.
The formalities of my remortgage has taken place for my property in Liskeard. Conveyancing was a necessary evil but I feel I should register my dissatisfaction about the lender. Who do I contact should I wish to lodge a complaint?

Ordinarily complaints to a lender are resolved very quickly. If you feel the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service, South Quay Plaza, 183 Marsh Wall, London E14 9SR with full details of your complaint.
I have recently realised that I have Seventy years unexpired on my lease in Liskeard. I now wish to extend my lease but my freeholder is can not be found. What options are available to me?
If you qualify, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can submit an application to the County Court for an order to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will mean that your lease can be lengthened by the magistrate. You will be obliged to prove that you or your lawyers have used your best endeavours to find the freeholder. For most situations a specialist may be useful to carry out a search and prepare a report which can be used as proof that the freeholder is indeed missing. It is advisable to get professional help from a conveyancer both on proving the landlord’s disappearance and the vesting order request to the County Court covering Liskeard.
