I am helping my aunt sell her property in Nottinghamshire. Does the conveyancer arrange the energy performance certificate or it is for the seller to coordinate?

Following the abolition of Home Information Packs, energy assessments was retained a required element of moving house. An EPC must be commissioned prior to the property being marketed. It is not a task that law firms normally organise. Where you are instructing a Nottinghamshire conveyancing solicitor they may be willing to arrange EPC’s given their relationships with long established Nottinghamshire providers

My offer on a property in Nottinghamshire has been accepted, the owners do however have a connected purchase. The vendors have placed an offer on somewhere, however it’s not been accepted yet, and are looking at other properties in the pipeline. I have chosen a local conveyancing solicitor in Nottinghamshire. What do I do now? At what stage do I apply for the mortgage with Principality?

It is usual to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur costs prematurely (home loan application is in the region of one thousand pounds, then survey, Nottinghamshire conveyancing search charges, etc). First, you should check that your property lawyer is on the Principality conveyancing panel. Concerning the subsequent stages this very much dictated by the uniqueness of your case, attraction to the property and on the state of the market. In a hot market the majority of purchasers will apply for a home loan with Principality and arrange for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they ask their conveyancing practitioner to proceed with searches.

Have completed on a a terraced house in Nottinghamshire , What is the estimated time for the Land Registry to register the transfer to my name? My Nottinghamshire conveyancing solicitor works at snail pace, so I want to check the post completion formalities are dealt with.

There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Nottinghamshire registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timescales can vary according to the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry must send notices to any interested parties. Currently approximately three quarters of submission are fully addressed within 12 days but occasionally there can be extensive hold-ups. Historically registration is effected after the purchaser is living at the premises therefore 'speed' is not always primary concern yet if it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your solicitor could contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.

I'm buying a new build house in Nottinghamshire benefiting from help to buy. The developers would not move on the amount so I negotiated £7000 of fixtures and fittings instead. The sale representative advised me not inform my lawyer about this side-deal as it would affect my loan with the bank. Is this normal?.

All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the developer of any new build, converted or renovated property, It is available online from the Lenders’ Handbook page on the CML website. CML form is completed and handed to the lender's surveyor when the inspection is done.

Lenders have different policies on incentives. Some accept none at all, cash or physical, while others will accept cash incentives up to 5%.

Hard to understand why the representative of a builder would be suggesting you withold information from a solicitor when all this will be clearly visible on forms the builder has to supply to its solicitor, the buyer's solicitor and the surveyor.

In what way does the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 impact my business property in Nottinghamshire and how can your lawyers assist?

The 1954 Act gives protection to commercial tenants, giving them the legal entitlement to apply to court for a continuation of occupancy when the lease comes to an end. There are certain specified grounds that a landlord can refrain from granting a lease renewal and the rules are complicated. We are happy to direct you to commercial conveyancing solicitors who use the act to your advantage and help with commercial conveyancing in Nottinghamshire

What advice can you give us when it comes to choosing a Nottinghamshire conveyancing practice to deal with our lease extension?

If you are instructing a property lawyer for lease extension works (regardless if they are a Nottinghamshire conveyancing practice) it is most important that he or she should be familiar with the legislation and specialises in this area of work. We suggest that you talk with several firms including non Nottinghamshire conveyancing practices prior to instructing a firm. Where the conveyancing practice is ALEP accredited then that’s a bonus. The following questions might be useful:

    Can they put you in touch with clients in Nottinghamshire who can give a testimonial?

I purchased a ground floor flat in Nottinghamshire, conveyancing having been completed July 2006. Can you let me have an estimated range of the fair premium for a lease extension? Equivalent flats in Nottinghamshire with over 90 years remaining are worth £186,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £55 yearly. The lease comes to an end on 21st October 2075

With 52 years left to run we estimate the premium for your lease extension to be between £29,500 and £34,000 plus professional fees.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs without more comprehensive investigations. Do not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt additional concerns that need to be considered and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not take any other action placing reliance on this information before getting professional advice.
