I am helping my aunt sell her property in Maryport. Will the solicitor arrange an energy performance certificate or it is for me to coordinate?
After the abolition of HIPs, EPC’s was maintained a mandatory element of selling a house. An energy assessment should be to hand prior to the property being marketed. This is not something that law firms ordinarily organise. Where you are using a Maryport conveyancing lawyer they might be willing to arrange energy performance certificates due to their relationships with reputable local assessors
Completion of my purchase has taken place for my property in Maryport. Conveyancing was satisfactory but I feel I should register my dissatisfaction about the lender. Who do I contact should I wish to lodge a complaint?
Most banks and building societies have complaints procedures. Your first port of call should be one of the lender’s branches or the Customer Services Department at head office. In most cases complaints to a lender are resolved very quickly. However if you are not satisfied that the matter is not resolved you can write to Financial Ombudsman Service who will take matters further.
I had an offer accepted on an apartment in Maryport on 1/6/2021, valuation was booked five days after, all came back fine. Property lawyer appointed, so the only thing outstanding was my mortgage offer. Having made daily calls to UBS and chasing them on my offer, I have now been told that my offer will not be issued unless the lawyer is on the UBS conveyancing panel. Can the lender hold off the offer?
Mortgage companies tend not to not issue an offer until they have details of a lawyer on their panel. It can take a few weeks for UBS to deal with your lawyer's application to be on the UBS conveyancing panel. There's no guarantee that your solicitor will be accepted.
A colleague advised me that if I am buying in Maryport I should carry out a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. Can you explain what the purpose of this search is?
A search of this type is usually quoted for as part of the standard Maryport conveyancing searches. It is a large document of about 40 pages, listing and detailing significant information about Maryport around the property and the people living there. It includes an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the local Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the demographics of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average House Prices, Crime statistics, Local Education with maps and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful data about Maryport.
Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly picked up during conveyancing in Maryport?
Restrictive covenants can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the legal transfer of property in Maryport. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’
My husband and I are planning to purchase a 2 room maisonettein Maryport with a loan from a mortgage company. We wish to instruct our solicitor in Maryport yet our mortgage company advise she’s not approved on their "panel". It seems we have little choice but to instruct one of the our lender panel solicitors or stay with our Maryport conveyancer and pay for one of their panel ones to represent our bank. This seems very unfair; Can we not simply insist that our bank use our Maryport lawyer?
No, not really. The lender mortgage issued is subject to conditions, one of which will be that lawyers will on the bank's conveyancing panel. in the past, most lenders had open panels, including many conveyancing solicitors in Maryport : a mortgagee could choose one for themselves, as long as it was on the lender's panel. The lender would then simply instruct the borrower's lawyers to act for the lender, too. You can use your lender's panel lawyers or you could borrow from another lender which does not restrict your choice. Another option that might be available is for your lawyer to apply to be on the conveyancing panel for your lender.
