I am assisting my mother sell her flat in Pyle. Will the conveyancer commission the energy assessment or it is for me to see to?
Following the abolition of Home Packs, EPC’s was kept a mandatory component of moving house. An EPC needs to be commissioned before the property is marketed. This is not something that conveyancers ordinarily arrange. Where you are using a Pyle conveyancing solicitor they may be able to arrange energy performance certificates due to their relationships with reputable local assessors
We previously instructed solicitors with offices in Pyle on the Principality solicitor approved list. They have just billed me a separate amount for dealing with the Principality mortgage. Is this a supplemental conveyancing fee set by Principality?
As unfair as it may appear, as long as it’s in their Terms of Engagement or estimate then yes your property lawyer can levy a fee for this. This fee is not dictated by Principality but by your Pyle lawyer. Numerous firms on the Principality panel will levy ’dealing with mortgage’ fee and others do not.
I recently had an offer agreed on a house in Pyle. My mortgage broker pressured me to appoint their property lawyer. I paid an upfront payment of £150. Soon after, the solicitor called me sheepishly admitting that they were not on the Leeds Building Society conveyancing panel. Am I right in thinking that I should be due a refund?
You should be able to recover this from the law firm if they were not on the Leeds Building Society panel. They should have asked at the outset which lender you were obtaining a mortgage with. An important lesson to readers of this site is to check that the lawyers are on the appropriate lender panel.
It has been 3 months following my purchase conveyancing in Pyle completed. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £180,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the residence from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
I decided to have a survey completed on a house in Pyle ahead of retaining lawyers. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold overhang to the house. Our surveyor has said that some lenders tend refuse to grant a mortgage on such a property.
