I am assisting my aunt sell her house in Lymm and Warburton. Does the conveyancing solicitor commission an energy assessment or it is for the seller to see to?
Following the abolition of Home Information Packs, energy assessments was retained a mandatory element of moving house. An energy assessment should be commissioned in advance of the property being put on the market. This is not something that lawyers normally arrange. Where you are using a Lymm and Warburton conveyancing solicitor they may be willing to arrange energy assessments due to their relationships with long established Lymm and Warburton energy assessors
I am expecting a OIP from Leeds Building Society this week so we can work out what to offer on a property we like as otherwise we are dependent on web based calculators (which aren't taking into account credit checks etc). Do Leeds Building Society recommend any Lymm and Warburton solicitors on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel, or is it better to go independently?
You will need to appoint Lymm and Warburton solicitors independently although you'll need to choose one on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel. The solicitor represents both you and Leeds Building Society through the process.
I am selling my house. I had a double glazing fitted in April 2008, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s lender, Coventry BS are being pedantic. The Lymm and Warburton solicitor who is on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel is recommending indemnity insurance as a solution but Coventry BS are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Coventry BS have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Coventry BS have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Coventry BS 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.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I have offered on last month in what was supposed to be a simple, chain free conveyancing. Lymm and Warburton is the location of the property. Can you offer any opinion?
Flying freeholds in Lymm and Warburton are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Lymm and Warburton you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Lymm and Warburton may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.
