I am assisting my step-mother sell her property in Loughborough. Does the solicitor order the energy assessment or it is for the seller to see to?
Following the abolition of Home Packs, energy assessments was kept a mandatory component of moving house. An EPC must be commissioned prior to the property being placed on the market. This is not as aspect of the sale process that lawyers normally organise. Where you are instructing a Loughborough conveyancing solicitor they might help arrange energy performance certificates due to their contacts with long established Loughborough assessors
My wife and I purchasing a terrace house in Loughborough. Our aim is to carry out a loft conversion at the property.Will legal conveyancing on the property involve enquiries to see if these alterations were previously refused?
Your conveyancer will review the registered title as conveyancing in Loughborough will on occasion reveal restrictions in the title deeds which prohibit certain works or necessitated the permission of a 3rd party. Many additions require local authority planning permissions and approval in accordance building regulations. Many areas are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which frequently prevent or impact extensions. You should check these things with a surveyor ahead of any purchase.
I am expecting a DIP from UBS this week so we know how much we could potentially offer as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc).

You will need to appoint Loughborough solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the UBS conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and UBS through the process.

How does conveyancing in Loughborough differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Loughborough approach us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is completed. This is because developers in Loughborough typically purchase the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Loughborough or who has acted in the same development.
My lawyers in Loughborough have advised me that they can not locate my conveyancing file. At the time of my purchase I took out a mortgage with the lender. Is it case that being on the bank conveyancing panel they need to have retained the file for a number of years?
Different lenders have different requirements but many of the Terms and Conditions of Conveyancing Panel Appointment require the file to be held for a period of 6 years. That being said we have not seen a copy of the lender Conveyancing Panel Terms. It might be worth you contacting the mortgage company directly.
