I am helping my niece sell her flat in Nantwich. Will the conveyancer arrange an EPC or should I organise this?
Following the abolition of Home Information Packs, EPC’s became a mandatory element of moving property. An energy assessment should be to hand in advance of the property being marketed. It is not a task that solicitors ordinarily arrange. If you are instructing a Nantwich conveyancing lawyer they may help arrange energy assessments given their relationships with reputable Nantwich energy assessors
Forgive me if this question is silly but I am unexperienced as FTB of a ground floor flat in Nantwich. Do I pick up the keys to the property on completion from my conveyancer? If so, I will instruct a local conveyancing solicitor in Nantwich?

We have agreed to purchase a house in Nantwich. A rare aspect is that the roof has a solar panel. Solicitors conducting should look into this right? Will my lender UBS be concerned?
As your lender is UBS your lawyer must comply with the formal requirements outlined in Part two of UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook for UBS. The Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook contains minimum specifications for solar panel roof-space leases, and property lawyers are required to report to UBS where a lease does not meet these conditions. The provisions relate to the installation of panels on properties countrywide and is not limited to Nantwich.
Will our solicitor be asking questions regarding flooding during the conveyancing in Nantwich.
The risk of flooding is if increasing concern for solicitors specialising in conveyancing in Nantwich. There are those who acquire a house in Nantwich, completely expectant that at some time, it may suffer from flooding. However, leaving to one side the physical damage, if a property is at risk of flooding, it may be difficult to obtain a mortgage, suitable insurance cover, or sell the premises. Steps can be carried out as part of the conveyancing process to forewarn the buyer.
Lawyers are not best placed to offer advice on flood risk, but there are a number of searches that can be initiated by the buyer or on a buyer’s behalf which should give them a better appreciation of the risks in Nantwich. The standard property information forms given to a purchaser’s conveyancer (where the Conveyancing Protocol is adopted) contains a standard question of the vendor to find out if the premises has suffered from flooding. If flooding has previously occurred and is not notified by the vendor, then a purchaser could issue a claim for damages as a result of such an misleading reply. A buyer’s lawyers may also conduct an environmental report. This should reveal whether there is a recorded flood risk. If so, more detailed investigations should be made.
I have justdiscovered that Action Conveyancing have been shut down. They carried out my conveyancing in Nantwich for a purchase of a leasehold flat 18 months ago. How can I check that the property is registered correctly in the name of the previous owner?
The easiest method to check if the premises is registered to you, you can carry out a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Nantwich conveyancing specialists.
Can you provide any advice for leasehold conveyancing in Nantwich from the point of view of saving time on the sale process?
- Much of the delay in leasehold conveyancing in Nantwich can be reduced where you instruct lawyers the minute your agents start marketing the property and request that they start to put together the leasehold information which will be required by the buyers’ conveyancers. If you have had conflict with your landlord or managing agents it is very important that these are resolved before the property is put on the market. The purchasers and their solicitors will be warry about purchasing a property where a dispute is ongoing. You may have to bite the bullet 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 details of the dispute to the buyers, but it is clearly preferable to reveal the dispute as over rather than unsettled. If you have carried out any alterations to the property would they have required Landlord’s consent? In particular have you laid down wooden flooring? Nantwich leases often stipulate that internal structural changes or laying down wooden flooring necessitate a licence from the Landlord consenting to such works. Where you dont have the consents to hand do not communicate with the landlord without contacting your conveyancer in the first instance. Many landlords or Management Companies in Nantwich levy fees for providing management packs for a leasehold property. You or your lawyers should discover the fee that they propose to charge. The management pack can be applied for as soon as you have a buyer, thus accelerating the process. The average time it takes to obtain the necessary information is three weeks. It is the most common reason for frustration in leasehold conveyancing in Nantwich. A minority of Nantwich 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 financially capable of paying the annual 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 actual amount of the service charge so that they can pass this information on to the buyers or their solicitors.
