I am assisting my aunt sell her property in Oakley. Will the conveyancer order an energy assessment or it is for the owner to coordinate?

After the abolition of HIPs, energy assessments was maintained a mandatory part of selling a house. An energy assessment needs to be to hand in advance of the property being advertised. It is not a task that solicitors normally organise. If you are instructing a Oakley conveyancing lawyer they might be able to arrange energy performance certificates due to their contacts with long established local energy assessors

It is unclear whether my mortgage offer requires a lease extension. I have telephoned my Oakley building society branch on numerous occasions and was told they are content with the situation and they would lend. My Oakley conveyancing solicitor - who is on the lender conveyancing panel- called and was told they refuse to lend in accordance with their specific requirements. Who do I believe?

The solicitor must follow the Council of Mortgage Lenders’ Handbook Part 2 specifications for your bank. Unless your lawyer obtains specific confirmation in writing that the mortgage company will go ahead, your lawyer has no choice but to refrain from exchanging contract and committing you to the purchase. We would suggest that you ask the lender to contact your lawyer in writing confirming that they will accept the number of years remaining.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on two weeks back in what should have been a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. Oakley is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?

Flying freeholds in Oakley are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Oakley you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Oakley may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.

Is it possible for you to refer me to a trustworthy Oakley property lawyer for purchasing a flat? A relative recommended one but their estimate was £1250 for a 225k property. That seems a tad expensive. The mortgage company will be TSB.

The purpose of this site is limited to being a directory service for solicitors who want to be listed as being on the approved conveyancing panel for TSB in certain locations for instance Oakley . We dont recommend any specific property lawyer.
