After the abolition of Home Information Packs, energy performance certificates was maintained a compulsory element of moving property. An energy performance certificate should be to hand in advance of the property being placed on the market. It is not as aspect of the sale process that law firms ordinarily arrange. Where you are using a Springwell conveyancing lawyer they may be willing to arrange EPC’s due to their contacts with reputable Springwell energy assessors
A relative pointed out to me me that in purchasing a property in Springwell there may be various restrictions affecting the ability to carry out external changes to a property. Is this right?
There are a number of properties in Springwell which have some sort of restriction or requirement of consent to execute external variations. Part of the conveyancing in Springwell should determine what restrictions are applicable and advising you as part of a ROT that should be sent to you.
I am due to exchange contracts on my flat. I had a double glazing fitted in April 2010, but did not receive a FENSA certificate or Building Regulation Certificate. My purchaser’s lender, Coventry BS are being a right pain. The Springwell solicitor who is on the Coventry BS conveyancing panel is happy to accept ‘lack of building regulation’ insurance but Coventry BS are requiring a building regulation certificate. Why do Coventry BS have a conveyancing panel if they don't accept advice from them?
It is probably the case that Coventry BS have referred the matter to their valuer. The reason why Coventry BS may not want to accept indemnity insurance is because it does not give them any reassurance that the double glazing was correctly and safely installed. The indemnity insurance merely protects against enforcement action which is very unlikely anyway.
I have a renovated Georgian property in Springwell. Conveyancing lawyer represented me and Accord Mortgages Ltd. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and there are two entries: one for freehold, the second leasehold with the matching property. If a house is not a freehold shouldn't I have been informed?
You should review the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Springwell and other locations in the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they sell they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with mortgage companies. You can also check the situation with your conveyancing practitioner who carried out the work.
I'm purchasing a new build house in Springwell with a mortgage from Barnsley Building Society. The sellers would not budge the amount so I negotiated five thousand pounds worth of extras instead. The sale representative advised me not inform my lawyer about this deal as it would affect my mortgage with the bank. Do I keep my lawyer in the dark?.
All lenders require a Disclosure of Incentives Form from the builder 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.
