I am assisting my niece sell her property in Lymington. Will the solicitor arrange an EPC or do I organise this?
Following the abolition of Home Packs, energy assessments was kept a mandatory element of selling a property. An energy assessment must be commissioned in advance of the property being advertised. It is not something that solicitors ordinarily organise. If you are instructing a Lymington conveyancing solicitor they may be able to arrange energy performance certificates due to their contacts with long established Lymington providers
I am purchasing a property in Lymington. One unusual aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Nottingham have issued a mortgage offer so presumably this is not a concern to them. Why is my solicitor raising questions about the panel?
Given that you are obtaining a mortgage with Nottingham your lawyer must follow the conveyancing requirements set out in Part two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for Nottingham. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook sets out minimum conditions for solar panel roof-space leases, and conveyancing practitioners are required to report to Nottingham where a lease fails to satisfy these conditions. The conditions relate to the installation of panels on properties countrywide and is not limited to Lymington.
I am selling my house. I had a double glazing fitted in June 2007, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s lender, Leeds Building Society are being pedantic. The Lymington solicitor who is on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel is saying indemnity insurance will be fine but Leeds Building Society are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Leeds Building Society have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Leeds Building Society have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Leeds Building Society may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.
2 months have gone by following my purchase conveyancing in Lymington concluded. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £170,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the residence from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
