I am helping my niece sell her house in Market Deeping. Will the conveyancing solicitor order an energy assessment or it is for the owner to see to?
After the demise of Home Packs, energy assessments was kept a compulsory element of moving house. An energy assessment should be to hand prior to the property being advertised. This is not something that lawyers normally arrange. Where you are instructing a Market Deeping conveyancing solicitor they might help arrange energy assessments due to their relationships with reputable local accredited person
Intending to buy a maisonette in Market Deeping. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Market Deeping lawyer is on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel.

It has been 2 months following my purchase conveyancing in Market Deeping concluded. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £180,000. 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 property 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.

Can you provide any top tips for leasehold conveyancing in Market Deeping with the purpose of expediting the sale process?
- A significant proportion of the frustration in leasehold conveyancing in Market Deeping can be reduced if you instruct lawyers as soon as you market your property and request that they start to collate the leasehold documentation needed by the buyers’ lawyers. If there is a history of conflict with your landlord or managing agents it is essential that these are settled before the property is marketed. The purchasers and their solicitors will be reluctant to purchase a flat where there is an ongoing dispute. You may need to swallow your pride and pay any arrears of service charge or settle the dispute prior to completion of the sale. It is therefore preferable to have any dispute settled ahead of the contract papers being issued to the buyers’ solicitors. You are still duty bound to disclose particulars of the dispute to the buyers, but it is better to reveal the dispute as over as opposed to unresolved. A minority of Market Deeping leases require Licence to Assign from the landlord. If this applies to your lease, you should place the estate agents on notice to make sure that the purchasers obtain bank and professional references. The bank reference will need to confirm that the buyers are able to meet the yearly service charge and the actual amount of the service charge should be quoted in the bank’s letter. You will therefore need to provide your estate agents with the service charge figures so that they can pass this information on to the buyers or their solicitors. If you hold a share in a the Management Company, you should ensure that you have the original share document. Obtaining a re-issued share certificate is often a time consuming formality and frustrates many a Market Deeping home move. Where a duplicate share is needed, you should approach the company director and secretary or managing agents (if relevant) for this sooner rather than later. You may think that you are aware of the number of years left on your lease but you should double-check by asking your solicitors. A purchaser's lawyer will not be happy to advise their client to where the remaining number of years is below 75 years. In the circumstances it is important at an early stage that you consider whether the lease requires a lease extension. If it does, contact your solicitors before you put your premises on the market for sale.
