I am assisting my niece sell her house in Stockwood. Will the conveyancing solicitor arrange an energy assessment or do I organise this?
Following the abolition of Home Packs, energy performance certificates remained a compulsory component of moving property. An EPC should be to hand before the property is advertised. It is not a task that solicitors ordinarily arrange. If you are instructing a Stockwood conveyancing lawyer they might help arrange energy assessments due to their contacts with long established local assessors

How does conveyancing in Stockwood differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Stockwood contact us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is finished. This is because new home sellers in Stockwood tend to acquire the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancing solicitors as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Stockwood or who has acted in the same development.
I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £235,500 and identified one near me in Stockwood I like with open areas and transport links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 61 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Stockwood for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?
Should you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will be a potential deal breaker. Discount the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you could request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor regarding this.
