It is a dozen years since I bought my property in Ramsey. Conveyancing lawyers have recently been appointed on the sale but I can't track down my title documents. Will this jeopardise the sale?
Don’t worry too much. First there is a chance that the deeds will be kept by the mortgage company or they may be in the possession of the conveyancers who acted in your purchase. Secondly the chances are that the title will be registered at the land registry and you will be able to establish that you own the property by your conveyancing lawyers procuring up to date copy of the land registers. Almost all conveyancing in Ramsey relates to registered property but in the rare situation where your property is not registered it adds to the complexity but is not insurmountable.
I am helping my step-mother sell her property in Ramsey. Does the solicitor order the energy assessment or it is for the owner to see to?
Following the demise of Home Packs, EPC’s became a required component of moving house. An energy assessment should be to hand before the property is put on the market. It is not something that conveyancers ordinarily arrange. If you are instructing a Ramsey conveyancing lawyer they may help arrange EPC’s given their contacts with reputable local providers

I recently had an offer agreed on an apartment in Ramsey. My mortgage broker suggested a conveyancer. I paid an on account payment of £150. Not long after, the lawyer contacted me sheepishly admitting that they were not on the Lloyds 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 Lloyds 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.

I have just started marketing my 2 bed apartment in Ramsey. Conveyancing lawyers have not yet been instructed, but I have just received a quarterly service charge demand – Do I pay up?
The sensible thing to do is discharge the invoice as normal as all rents and maintenance payments will be allotted on completion, so you will be reimbursed by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.
