After the demise of Home Packs, energy assessments became a compulsory part of selling a property. An energy performance certificate should be to hand prior to the property being advertised.

I have a renovated Georgian property in Norbury. Conveyancing lawyer represented me and Nationwide Building Society. I did a free Land Registry search last week and there are two entries: the first freehold, another for leasehold under the exact same address. If a house is not a freehold shouldn't I have been informed?

You need to review the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Norbury and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they buy they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with buyers. You can also enquire as to the position with the conveyancing lawyer who conducted the conveyancing.

Due to the encouragement of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a house in Norbury prior to appointing conveyancers. I have been told that there is a flying freehold element to the house. My surveyor advised that some banks tend not give a mortgage on a flying freehold premises.

I need to instruct a conveyancing solicitor for remortgage conveyancing in Norbury. I have stumble across a web site which seems to have the perfect solution If it is possible to get all the legals done via email that would be preferable. Do I need to be wary? What should out be looking out for?

As usual with these online conveyancers you need to read ALL the small print - did you notice the extra charge for dealing with the mortgage?

Having had my offer accepted I require leasehold conveyancing in Norbury. Before I get started I require certainty as to the remaining lease term.

If the lease is recorded at the land registry - and almost all are in Norbury - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.

We have reached the end of our tether in trying to purchase the freehold in Norbury. Can this matter be resolved via the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal?

You certainly can. We can put you in touch with a Norbury conveyancing firm who can help.
