A relative pointed out to me me that in purchasing a property in Newcastle upon Tyne there could be various restrictions affecting the ability to carry out external alterations to a property. Is this right?
There are a number of properties in Newcastle upon Tyne which have some sort of restriction or requirement of consent to carry out external alterations. Part of the conveyancing in Newcastle upon Tyne should determine what restrictions are applicable and advising you as part of a ROT that should be sent to you.
I am due to move house in November. Should my conveyancing solicitor update the removal company on the day of completion. Incidentally, can you put forward a removal company in Newcastle upon Tyne. Conveyancing solicitor was found before I stumbled across your website.
On the day of completion you can collect the house keys from your property agent however this should only occur once the sellers lawyers inform the agent that they have the completion monies and the keys can be handed over. After that you should inform the removal company that they can start moving you in. We do not recommend a particular removal company but can assist you in finding a residential property solicitor in Newcastle upon Tyne or a solicitor with expertise in conveyancing in Newcastle upon Tyne.
I am selling my apartment. I had a double glazing fitted in November 2007, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My buyer's lender, Kent Reliance are being problematic. The Newcastle upon Tyne solicitor who is on the Kent Reliance conveyancing panel is recommending indemnity insurance as a solution but Kent Reliance are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Kent Reliance have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Kent Reliance have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Kent Reliance 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.
