I am assisting my aunt sell her property in Neston. Will the conveyancer arrange the energy performance certificate or should I organise this?
Following the abolition of HIPs, EPC’s was maintained a required part of selling a property. An energy assessment needs to be commissioned in advance of the property being advertised. This is not something that solicitors normally arrange. Where you are instructing a Neston conveyancing practitioner they may help arrange energy assessments given their contacts with reputable Neston providers
We are getting the release of further monies on our mortgage from Co-operative as we wish to carry out improvements to our property in Neston. Are we obliged to appoint a high street Neston solicitor on the Co-operative conveyancing panel to deal with the legals?

Our sealed bid on a house in Neston has been agreed to, the vendors do however have a tied purchase. The vendors have placed an offer on on an apartment, but it’s not yet agreed to, and are looking at other apartments booked. I have instructed a high street conveyancing solicitor in Neston. What do I do now? At what point should I apply for the mortgage with Lloyds?
It is usual to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket prematurely (mortgage application is in the region of £1k, then survey, Neston conveyancing search costs, etc). First, you should ensure that your solicitor is on the Lloyds conveyancing panel. Concerning the subsequent phase this very much dictated by the uniqueness of your case, desire for the property and on the state of the market. In a buoyant market some buyers would apply for the mortgage with Lloyds and arrange for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they request their conveyancing practitioner to move forward with the conveyancing in Neston.
I have justbeen informed that Action Conveyancing have been shut down. They carried out my conveyancing in Neston for a purchase of a freehold house 12 months ago. How can I check that the property is not still registered in the name of the previous owner?
