Following the abolition of Home Packs, energy performance certificates was retained a mandatory part of selling a house. An EPC should be to hand prior to the property being advertised. This is not a task that conveyancers normally organise. If you are using a Ormesby conveyancing lawyer they might help arrange energy performance certificates given their contacts with reputable local energy assessors
Have just purchased a repossessed house at auction in Ormesby. Conveyancing is needed. What are my next steps?
Given that you are now legally bound yourself to purchase you must retain a conveyancing lawyer as a matter of priority as you are faced with a tight a fixed date to complete the deal. An auction property will have a bespoke legal pack. This will include most,if not all of the documents that your solicitor requires.

You must hand this to the solicitor instructed by you as soon as possible. Do make sure that that you have the requisite funding in place to complete the transaction on the set completion date.
I am purchasing a 4 bedroom semi-detached house in Ormesby. Our aim is to convert the garage to a playroom at the property.Will legal due diligence on the property include enquiries to ascertain if these alterations are allowed?
Your conveyancer will check the registered title as conveyancing in Ormesby will on occasion identify restrictions in the title deeds which prevent certain works or need the permission of a 3rd party. Many works require local authority planning permissions and approval under the building regulations. Certain areas are designated conservation areas and special planning restrictions apply which frequently prevent or affect extensions. It would be sensible to check these things with a surveyor prior to committing yourself to a purchase.

What advice can you give us when it comes to appointing a Ormesby conveyancing firm to carry out our lease extension conveyancing?
When appointing a conveyancer for your lease extension (regardless if they are a Ormesby conveyancing practice) it is essential that he or she should be familiar with the legislation and specialises in this area of work. We suggest that you make enquires with several firms including non Ormesby conveyancing practices prior to instructing a firm. If the firm is ALEP accredited then so much the better. The following questions could be useful:

Can you let me have an estimate of the premium that my landlord can legally expect in return for granting a renewal of my lease? Comparable properties in Ormesby with a long lease are worth £176,000. The ground rent is £50 charged once a year. The lease terminates on 21st October 2099

The figure above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure in the absence of comprehensive due diligence. You should not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be additional issues that need to be considered and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you move forward placing reliance on this information before seeking the advice of a professional.
